What was the scope of their involvement?
Slow Clap Productions has partnered with us for five shoots, three of which were at live events. For our biggest public sector project together, the team photographed different events along the San Francisco waterfront. They leveraged those images in a series of videos that we shared on social media and our website. This content addressed the need to show the client, a local government agency, performing community outreach. At the client’s event, Slow Clap Productions posted images that promoted the agency’s mission, as well as a timelapse video that depicted community engagement.
In a related project for the local government, the team did a photoshoot and time-lapse video of the incoming tide to communicate the dangers of flooding. The final deliverable was a set of nine 60–90-second video clips they had created from 30 minutes of recording. We posted the content on our website and social media.
What is the team composition?
The team includes a logistics resource and the principal, who acts as a strategic advisor. A group of 4–6 people work on production, but only 2–3 team members at a time per shoot.
How did you come to work with Slow Clap Productions?
I was not involved in the decision. Our contract with the city government required a percentage of partners to be small businesses. Slow Clap Productions qualified for this designation and we had already done successful projects with them.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent between $50,000–$1000,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We have a multiyear contract. The partnership started in January 2017 and it is ongoing.
