Northern Fork Promo Video

WARNING: YOU MIGHT JUST DROOL.

We came out on a beautiful Chicago night to shoot the Northern Fork team do their thing at this amazing rooftop! From delicious cocktails and pig roast, to a beautiful view of the skyline and picturesque sunset — there is nothing more you could ask for!

Northern Fork wanted showcase their delicious work using video so we shot a little bit of their prep, team and guests mingling. We are still dreaming of the pig roast and blueberry pie. Haha! Please invite us back Northern Fork!

Awesome Chicago Cover Band

If you are looking for a live band for your wedding or general event, definitely check out the cover band the Walk-Ins! Joe and team are so incredibly nice and great to work with. You won't be disappointed.

In one swift hour, we were able to film so much great footage and compress it down to really give an audience a taste of what they can expect. Now have a listen! They'll have you singing along for sure!

Thanks for checking out The Walk-Ins' reel! If you're looking for cover band based out of the Chicagoland area, definitely check them out!

My UIC Connection

We collaborated with the University of Illinois at Chicago on creating a piece that would help incoming freshman and transfer students adjust to being at college. We called "My UIC Connection" and this became the theme for the video. It went on to win an award! First Place to be exact! Thanks to the Association of College Unions International (ACUI) Region V for recognizing our work, and the testimonies of these young adults!

Top 5 Reasons to Use a Teleprompter

When we offer a teleprompter to our clients it seems that the response is 50/50, which is surprising. If given the choice, our production crew would hands down opt for a teleprompter. And not just because we are "behind the camera" types!

Here's why: 

  1. Clean Message. Your audience has the attention span of a two year old. You need to be succinct. Rambling is the opposite of succinct. And rambling is a good segue to point #2. 
  2. Faster Editing. We're not going to lie. Editing 15 minutes of rambling sucks. Know what else sucks? When your final product is baby ramblings stuck together with silver duct tape (See #1, i.e., don't risk losing or confusing your audience). 
  3. Consistent Delivery. Practice makes perfect. Control delivery down to intonation and facial expression. Beyond what you say, there is so much power in creating a presence. And this comes with practice. 
  4. Feedback. You can get someone's feedback before you even open your mouth and we hit record. 
  5. More Relaxed. You're more relaxed because you know exactly what you're going to say and how you're going to say it. No shaky-nervous voice. No forgetting lines. Just reading with presence. 

A teleprompter is a tool that can get you to an awesome video that hits the web faster.

And you can get on with your life. Or, ideally, on to your next video with us...because the other one was a breeze. :)
