It's Your Ship
Washington speakers Bureau projects usually involve high-profile talent delivering really powerful and motivating messages, but not all high-profile speakers are completely comfortable with the surprising intimacy of the studio-bound video camera. To stimulate and capture the engaging performance the speaker has in mind, O-Zone directors create a supportive and high energy atmosphere of encouragement and collaboration aimed at capturing the best of the presenter. But we’re not only above-the-line content creators; O-Zone is an asset in any producer’s pocket because we also fulfill technical roles, functioning in a dozen production capacities to transform raw communications into polished new media product offerings. For this interactive online program featuring Mike Abrashoff—about a proven style of leadership and mastering the enterprises of today—we provided both technical expertise and comprehensive creative services. We coordinated the production facility for a blue-screen shoot of both the presenter, and a special live interactive audience. Recording video while streaming content live, we captured webinar screens for inclusion within an edited version of the program for subsequent on-demand online viewing. Along with live streaming, all video segments were also produced as Flash files for continued use in interactive education and motivational programs, and all editing and post-production services were provided by O-Zone. Visually, this sample suffers because while the project was originally produced in Flash, it was converted to video for a special promotion clip, and then reconverted to Flash, but because of its value as a representation of a style approach to the content and its multifaceted communication solutions, it is in our archives, proudly.
