Music video production Chicago

Music performance video production shot at the Roots Room in Chicago. We used two cameras and shot the song multiple times from various angles while the musician performed along to a pre-recorded track for synchronization. In post-production we added some additional visuals, lyrics and lighting effects. This is a perfect solution for a small budget demo, shot in one session and in one location.

Reno did an outstanding job putting together a music video for me for a good price. His work is very creative and emotionally resonant. He’s also a good guy and a pleasure to work. He was available to work quickly, and he delivered a final product within two days! I would highly recommend. -Brian J

Public Speaker Promotional Video Sample

This is a sample video for Sheila Glaszov’s “What Color is Your Project Manager’s Brain” in person presentation. Sheila does a number of presentation variations based on content from her “What Color is Your Brain” books. This video example serves as a promo that companies looking for someone to talk about personality issues specifically of interest to professional project managers.

If you are a public speaker or presenter this is an example of how we can take a few excerpts from your live presentation together with your PowerPoint slides (if applicable) and combine it with a prepared voiceover to create a nice promotional video that will provide meeting planners and other potential prospects with an idea of the material you will cover as well as a taste of your presentation style. A video like this is a must have for any professional public speaker.

In the sample below the speaker provided us with a few clips and his biographical information to create this promotional video.

In this sample we used excerpts from a keynote address to sample the speaker’s message.
