Arranger Talks About His Collection of Compositions “Say It With Music”

Musical pedagogue Dr. James Lyke, Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois talks about his collection of piano arrangements based on the songs of Irving Berlin. The collection “Play it With Music” is published by Lee Roberts Music Publications and is distributed through Hal Leonard Music. We produced this somewhat impromptu video onsite LIVE at the 2015 MTNA Conference in Las Vegas, NV. Dr. Lyke’s description of the pieces is accompanied on the piano by his co-arranger and collaborator Geoffrey Haydon.

This is a good example of how to take advantage of the resources at a trade show or conference to promote your products. It is often a perfect time when all of the knowledgeable stakeholders are available in one place and the venue offers an active and energetic backdrop for your production.

Hi Reno,

Geoff put me onto the YouTube video of Say It With Music. I thought it was great! Thanks for putting together that amazing video. I usually don’t like to see or hear myself, but this time, I did.

All the best,
Jim

Conference Video Production Promo With Animated Intro

This is a short promo we produced showing excerpts from a Workers Health & Safety Conference we videotaped in Connecticut. The conference was presented as four one-and-a-half-hour sessions over two days to a group of construction industry delegates from China and involved a translator. We recorded each session then added the PowerPoint slides in post production. The final version was delivered a few weeks later to the seminar attendees and other stakeholders as a DVD set to serve as a review and to share the content with their staff. In this promo I took the animated intro we produced and used it as a background, superimposing excerpts from the conference as a picture-in-picture on top.

I cannot say enough great things about Reno, and the services he provided, both before, during and after our conference. Reno is a highly valued, ongoing asset to our team, not only providing video and writing services but overall communication guidance and spot-on strategic input as well. He is an experienced, professional & creative thinker who is reliable and easy to work with. It was both a privilege and pleasure to work with Reno, and we have made plans to incorporate his services into our future projects. – Ed Lai, VisionBridgeConsulting.com
