June 2020
Hi . How are you?
Two people are in a production studio wearing masks. One is standing behind a camera.

Just six months in, and 2020 is proving to be a critical year in our shared history. From slowing the spread of a pandemic to spreading awareness about systematic racism, the seriousness of this year can't be understated. 

Placing the relationship first is our core value. That's why we started our monthly newsletter: to share ideas, to connect, and to support your work. We hope you are doing okay and invite you to reach out anytime.

This month, we look at how traditions and technology meet to celebrate milestones. We share advice from nonprofit leaders who have transformed their events. And we outline best practices for filming your message for streaming. 

Please contact us to learn more about livestreaming, video projects, or hosting hybrid events this fall. If you'd like to stay in touch between newsletters, join us on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn.

Celebrating Graduations in 2020

Combining traditions and technology, school administrators, families, and parents are creatively honoring graduation milestones despite COVID-19's impact on the school year. We highlight how three schools hosted four memorable and special ceremonies for their students.

Pre-recording speeches is a great way to keep your virutal event engaging and on pace. When you're not able to film your message in the studio, follow these best practices to film yourself.

Oregon Symphony Essential Sounds

Essential Sounds is a new seven-part collective musical celebration of the people who are essential in our lives. The series, produced by the Oregon Symphony and shot and edited in our studio, features moving musical performances, personal stories, and stirring images. It was a pleasure to be part of this creative collaboration to bring the vision of Oregon Symphony Creative Chair Gabriel Kahane and director Holcombe Waller to life.
