LMC provided multicamera coverage of the Public Banking Institute’s “Public Banks for Public Works” Conference October 18, 2014 at the Friends Center in Philadelphia. The all-day conference included a keynote presentation by Harold Meyerson, columnist for the Washington Post, and panel discussions featuring experts in creating and driving interest in public banks, including Ellen Brown, widely credited as the founder of the public banking movement, promoting alternatives in the banking/financial sector that might empower regional governments, Main Street, and the middle class instead of relying on Wall Street and big commercial banks.
“It rather amazed me that so much work (our four camera shoot )was getting done so thoroughly and professionally by just one guy,” says Walt McRee, head of the Pennsylvania Public Banking Project, our client contact for this production. “The final product, with its multiple angles, made the content easily watchable by taking advantage of interesting camera angles and using the facility features to best advantage. Adapting PowerPoint slide material in split screen shots with live action is another way that the editor’s eye helped make this project more successful. Steve’s a pro — he’s mastered his craft and the medium.”
In addition to multiple camera edits, we also incorporated our speaker/slide presentation technology from Red Giant Presto, which places speaker and slides on screen simultaneously and in perfect synchronization.
