This is How an Organization Could Shoot Video

Posted by on Feb 24, 2017 in News, Organizations, Soul of Business

Video shot for websites in explanation of an organization’s work in the world is most often so obvious. So obviously selling you on an idea, if not something more concrete. So obviously disconnected.

When one understands the mechanics of authenticity on film, one can set out to bring life to important work without letting oneself down. Without the disability of in-congruence.

I’m in Germany next week doing just this. Defining the arc of an organization’s work and what message will help its true understanding. Then filming over the week for just that, amongst the under current of human presence. It is an art worth knowing. It will bring in the audience that previously couldn’t see, couldn’t connect, on account of the confines of so many inadequate words.

This will be a full and glorious week of immersion, connected people and creativity in film. A true exploration and discovery in service to a grand purpose.

If these few words define your challenge in some fashion, we should speak.

Between the Four Walls of a Chicago Boardroom

Posted by on Sep 5, 2014 in News, Organizations

Next week I find myself between the four walls of a Chicago Board Room. A Senior Management Team, and the ON CAMERA Experience. Including the filming in front of an audience. Perhaps terrifying for the subject, except it never ends up that way …

Those That Surround Me

There’s something about Abner. It lives in his eyes, for all to see. The traumatic events of such a young life have obviously played their part in Abner’s appreciative state.
