Using Video to Keep Communities Strong, Safe and Connected

Using Video to Keep Communities Strong, Safe and Connected

This global pandemic is dramatically reshaping many of our lives and communities. As we navigate these challenges, we’ve had a wealth of conversations with our clients, partners, vendors and community members about the shift to video. In order to extend this dialogue, we’re now reaching out to you as a member of our broader community in the hopes of supporting your response.

For many of us, a prudent response to this crisis means a sudden transition away from many of the face-to-face approaches (such as live events and classrooms) that have historically drawn our teams and communities together. Video presents a wide range of alternative strategies, including:

  • Studio-based video streaming, with high-quality broadcast to a wide range of social media, broadcast, and conferencing platforms.

  • Fully remote stream production, drawing in video and media from multiple geographically distributed sources to then mix and switch in production of a high-quality integrated live stream.

  • Production of original animation, explaining concepts critical to community understanding as circumstances evolve.

As we partner with our community to help organizations navigate and deliver their communications using these types of strategies, we are also closely monitoring official guidance from the CDC, local governments, and the World Health Organization. We’re working to safeguard our team members and clients through remote workflows, social distancing strategies, and specific cleaning protocols in our office and studio space.

In order to responsibly provide a closer look at our studio space and streaming video workflow, we’ve produced a brief tour video:

Please let us know what questions you may have about our studio, remote streaming workflows, animation, or anything else. Our team is ready to perform preliminary consulting on available options at no cost, in the hopes of serving you and your team as you, in turn, support our broader community.
