Two Stories Media worked with the Glass Art Society (GAS) to provide commercial videography content during their annual glass conference. This 3 day event was spread across 6 locations: Duncan McClellan Gallery, Hilton Bayfront Hotel, Mahaffey Theatre, Morean Glass Studio, Zen Art Studio and Imagine Museum.
Across these 3 days and 6 locations we had a total of 8 camera operators working simultaneously, all with specific assignments. We also had one production manager ensuring quality and addressing any scheduling changes that could occur. As it was such a large scale event, there inevitably were a few changes but were handled promptly and with no issues.
Throughout the 3 days there were nearly 40 demonstrations, 20 lectures, an opening ceremony, and closing reception. Glass Art specifically chose Two Stories Media because our crews are cinematographers and understand how to use light to create beautiful images – which was a key aspect for GAS. They wanted to be sure that their event and art was captured accurately and beautifully. In the process of glass blowing, the furnaces, instruments and glass itself get so hot they glow; which if not exposed properly, will be blown out with no details.
When it came to post-production we provided 48 final edits in total. These include recaps of demos to lectures which can be used for their members’ continuing education online. The recaps and highlights were designed for social media, to enhance engagement and show who the Glass Art Society is as a whole, while also highlighting some of their members. GAS understands that quality, impactful visual content is key to have for organic social media engagement and growth.
With the amount of final edits provided, we took about 2 months to accomplish all the edits. This was on pace for the timeline that was discussed and agreed upon with the client. View some of the recaps below.
