Company: As You Like It Productions
Venue: Eastwood Hall – Derbyshire
Overview: As You Like It Productions approached Conference Craft to provide conference technical support and onsite video editing facilities for the NG Bailey Facilities Services Conference.
The conference room housed a small back projection set with twin lecterns with sound/graphics and stage lighting for the morning presentations and briefing.
In the afternoon the delegates were given a HD camcorder with operator training given by the onsite editing staff and sent off to write, film and produce a two minute commercial to be shown later that day. At 5.30pm the footage was presented to our staff and in a two-hour window edited six commercials and rushed them down to the conference crew to be shown in between courses at dinner.
Throughout the afternoon the sound and graphics for the videos were prepared and a storyboard handed to the editors from the teams. Whilst the filming work was taking place the conference room was being reset for dinner with the addition of starcloth, Lycra stretched sails and LED lighting. The lighting was applied to the set and room to create an Oscars style fun evening which included dinner and awards programme for the best productions.
