Small Business Center Barrie – Portrait shoot

No Comments

Featured here: A great example of optimal workflow and efficiency on-set.
People tend to be busy in the throes of their day to day activities, especially in the workplace. The goal of this round robin style shoot was to get each team member shot as quickly and efficiently as possible, without compromising on quality. After the location scout, we established the date and time of the shoot; production took place during a three-hour window. During which, each member of the team came into the reserved room, received a quick make-up job (light powdering), stepped onto the set and was photographed. Each team member reviewed the images on-screen (via tethered capture), selected and signed off on their favourite image. Each individual returned to their daily business after spending only 5-10 minutes with myself and crew. Images were edited and uploaded to the server next day for download. Production wrapped, onto the next one.

HomeGuard Home Inventory

Meet Larry Hoover, proprietor of HomeGuard Home Inventory. Larry represents what I admire about sole proprietors of “small business”: an individual with an eclectic idea that people can benefit from. And like other sole proprietors I’ve worked with… Larry actually cares! He cares about his clients. He cares about the quality of his service, and he’s here to help people help protect themselves. In his own words he is “here to wake up and shake up this (home insurance) industry.
But he’s not selling insurance folks…
Have a listen below.

Financial advisors and realtors can also benefit from HomeGuard’s services.

“HomeGuard provides a service that allows home owners to receive money faster, if they make an insurance claim. A lot of people assume that they’re covered. They assume that they will receive a dollar for every dollar that’s gone. In over 50% of home insurance policies we’ve reviewed, we found that there is a possibly that the home owner could receive $0, if they made a claim.”

A+ Leasing and Administration

Here is a long form motion graphic presentation. Julianne Spurling (proprietor of A+ Leasing and Administration) was looking for a way to spice up her speaking engagements and trade show display. After a brief chat over coffee, I pitched the video featured below. We used Julianne’s existing Power Point presentation as a template, maintaining the same order and structure. We extracted the headers and body copy, placing them into new Adobe After Effects compositions. After licensing some great stock imagery from Adobe Stock, a bit of planning and prep; I put the ‘moves’ on the on-screen assets and shipped the file for approval.
Julianne now stands out at trade shows with her new motion display piece, and she can retire her tired old Power Point presentation.
