The MIT Tech Review and the MIT Enterprise Forum Global branch had hired Skillman Video Group LLC for a very special occasion. Not only is Drew Houston an MIT alum, but he is also the Co-Founder and CEO of Dropbox. Since our client had a very important guest visiting, they wanted nothing but the best quality of video to remember this event, so they hired Skillman Video Group LLC. This video shoot had some challenging moments, but it wasn’t anything our skilled Boston video producers and videographers couldn’t handle. We were excited to have the video shoot in one of MIT’s newer buildings, the Kirsch Auditorium in the MIT Stata Center. Since Kirsch auditorium is a very popular lecture hall on campus, we had to wait until class was over to set up. We had exactly 30-minutes from when the class ended until the interview began! In order to keep on schedule, our crew set up as much equipment as possible outside the auditorium only moving in at the last moment to install the lights, two camera and perform an audio check. It was a well timed and orchestrated set up!
Our client was very impressed with how efficient we were when setting up the equipment. We had two cameras stationed in the auditorium, a DSLR in the front of the auditorium and a HD video camera in the back. Since the camera in the back was recording all the sound, we had to run an audio cable from the sound booth to the camera. It was rather a large auditorium, so the camera in the back also needed a special telephoto lens so it could capture everything with out loss of quality. Once the video shoot was over we went right to work in editing the video, and our skilled video editors were able to get a rough cut of the 90-minute lecture to the client by midnight the same night.
Our work this week has been a great success, and we have been able to leave lasting impressions for our clients in which they can share with the world. Skillman Video Group LLC is a Boston video production company. Call us anytime at 800-784-0140
