Connecting With Park & Recreation Professionals

Last month, some of our Miami team members participated in the Florida Recreation and Parks Association annual conference. As an exhibitor, it gave us exposure to a cross section of professionals who work for parks, recreation and leisure service agencies, as well as others who work in recreational settings, including parks, natural areas, youth and adult sports, senior centers, summer camps, etc.

Amy Skoke and Ana Moreno were proud to showcase the work we’ve done for Parks Foundation of Miami. See for yourself by watching this video that tells the story of Miami-Dade Parks and read the case study.

Video Production News

Did you know?

  • 90% of people say they discover new brands or products on YouTube.
  • 40% of global shoppers say they've purchased products they found on YouTube.
  • 500 hours of video is uploaded to YouTube every minute.

To break through the video clutter and raise awareness for a company’s brand, it's important to produce something unique. Lucky for our clients, we can provide a full spectrum of solutions from turnkey productions to fully customized, branded-content productions. Today, we want to focus on our turnkey solution and share a few reminders.

By “turnkey” we’re talking about simple, straight-forward productions where the client has a fairly clear creative idea about the video shoot and the message they want to convey. We work with two production resources for these video projects, and they’re capable of creating pre-roll video content, video montages using client assets and longer-format videos. To see examples, take a peek here and feel free to share them with your clients.

The turnkey video process begins by submitting a Creative Brief and a quote request to Ashlee Jackson, in Salesforce. The turnaround times you can expect are:

Production Quote 2 Business Days
Video Shoot 10 Business Days Minimum (from date of request)
Preview Link of Montage 3 – 5 Business Days
Preview Link of Full Motion 7 – 9 Business Days

You can find step-by-step details for full-motion and montage production, in-house editing and a link to the Creative Brief in this Content Production Document or reach out directly to Ashlee.
