Orchestral Tools is a brilliant symphonic software company that creates robust toolsets for professional film and video game composers. For their product launch during NAMM this year, they wanted to stream their event in the style of an Apple Keynote and they chose Varvid to handle the video production and streaming.

Keynote style product release live stream at the Paramount Theatre in Hollywood, California delivered via Youtube and Facebook.

We delivered a three camera live stream with a mini jib for this well-produced show that streamed on their Youtube channel and their Facebook page, which used to also crosspost to one of the presenter’s Facebook page as well. This was the company’s first live stream and the online views and interactions tell us, it’s just what their audience was hungry for.

The Facebook Live stream, the first for this company received over 2,000 engagements!

Recently SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics, approached our team to produce an educational video for their most recent national campaign highlighting career opportunities in optical engineering to high school students. As we love helping local organizations tell their story to the world, we gladly accepted the challenge!

The eight-minute video, A Day Without Photonics: A modern horror story was produced and filmed in Bellingham, WA using local talent and crew, including Binary Recording Studio for location audio recording.  Key members of Varvid’s post-production department, Colin Dalvit and Richard McLean, produced the special effects, music, and editing. And our own Director of Business Development, Drew Graham, was cast as the father.

Richard McLean, on working with local clients, “One of the best experiences of working on this project was going to Sehome High School and working with some awesome student actors.”

Since the video was posted to YouTube in April it is quickly approaching 1,000 views. To aid with views of the video SPIE has been doing an exceptional job with video social media promotions. Check out the Tweet below:
