What was the scope of their involvement?
One of our projects involved a meeting, which at our company includes 500–600 of our employees in one area to hear our CEO talk about our direction and strategy. It’s very critical to document those meetings, which was an 8-hour day for that shoot, of the two-hour meeting. There was one hour of preproduction, one hour of breaking down equipment, and then a six-hour shoot.
They were running around, monitoring our audio levels during the meeting, but there wasn’t any storyboarding. It was similar to a speaking event in which the cameras are just pointed at the speaker.
What is the team composition?
My main points of contact are Joe (General Manager, Sky21 Media), Chris (Production Supervisor, Sky21 Media), and Paul (President, Sky21 Media). For the meeting project, we had roughly three people from Sky21 Media running the cameras and audio.
How did you come to work with Sky21 Media?
They came highly recommended from a few people I had worked with before, so I was well aware of their skills and their background. It was a huge plus that they are local, as well as their availability, skill set, and background.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent $12,000–$15,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in February 2019, and the work is ongoing.
