What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
Because we just posted the video, it’s a little too early to tell. As for anecdotal feedback, the executives, CEO, and CHRO thought it was brilliant. Everyone we’ve shown it to internally has praised its quality. I anticipate the video will be received well by the viewing public.
I appreciated that they were unobtrusive. We were filming in an office environment and naturally, something like this can be disruptive. They were respectful of people’s space and were very quiet, well as quiet as you can be.
Their team had a really good feel for the style of the executives. By this I mean, we had them interviewing our CEO and CHRO. They immediately put both of them at ease and got really good interviews.
How did Slow Clap Productions perform from a project management standpoint?
Slow Clap Productions was absolutely fabulous. They were able to change on the fly and keep to a very tight schedule. There were a couple of delays, but those were mostly our fault. They worked very quickly and efficiently. Nicole provided constant email updates and kept everyone informed.
What did you find most impressive about them?
Dan has a very artistic eye—I mean that in the most complimentary way. Sometimes, people can get caught up in technique. However, Dan is able to render a scene very beautifully and still communicate what we’re trying to say.
Slow Clap Productions is a creative organization, but they also know they’re a business. Their team is cognizant of achieving a purpose, working closely with us to guarantee results.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Not really, I was very pleased with the results. As an artistic critique, they tended to do a lot of extreme close-ups. I had to tell them to pull back a little because part of the building’s allure is the office landscape and the full scope of the view from the windows. It’s a minor stylistic thing, but those are the kinds of discussions you need to have on a project like this.
