When we were asked to film the Symphony IRI Summit trade seminar at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, the greatest challenge was that the client wanted us to create a video recap of the day’s activities to be uploaded the same day for worldwide viewing.
A same day edit is always a big challenge, but when you have a non-stop schedule that ends shortly before the video needs to be placed online, the stakes are higher. The critical element for this particular production was our pre-production phase. We used that to establish who the speakers were and what they were going to be talking about. This way we could be prepared to identify soundbytes that were worthy of the same day video highlight. It also allowed us to create video animations ahead of time with the speakers’ names and business titles, which were pre-rendered to save time on the day of filming and editing.
Through the use of multiple cameras and constant video and audio transfers during the day, along with constant editing throughout the day with the client by our side, we were able to deliver a highly same day edit each of the days of the conference.
