Multivision Creates Presentation at Wine Spectator Impact Conference

It was at New York City’s famous Pierre Hotel last week that leaders in the spirits and wine industry from all over the world convened for the 41st Wine Spectator Impact Conference. Here, the worlds’ top brands and distributors met and exchanged ideas and showcased the latest marketing concepts.

Presentations by Pernod Ricard, Suntory, Kendall Jackson and others were featured at the exclusive conference hosted by famed publisher Marvin Shanken.

For the third time in 15 years Multivision was asked to help create and stage the presentation for Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits, the largest wine and spirits wholesaler in the USA.

“We worked with Chairman Harvey Chaplin in 2003,  CEO Wayne Chaplin in 2009, and again this year, as Wayne addressed this amazing assembly of  industry leaders on Distribution in the USA,” explains Bob Berkowitz, Multivision president.

Multivision, along with industry expert David Lincoln Ross (former editor of Wine Spectator), created a presentation to explain the recent joining of Southern Wine and Spirits (Miami) and Glazer’s Distributors ( Dallas), resulting in an organization that does business in 44 U.S. states, Canada and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Berkowitz explains, “We put in fun, humor and lots of animation and graphics in a fully-animated 19-minute Keynote presentation with 60 video clips. We wanted it to keep moving and really showcase the scope of the growth that has been part of Southern in the last year. They have been our clients for over 30 years now, and we are so excited to be along for their ride to a national footprint. Wayne knocked it out of the park.  It is very exciting for us as well to be part of that growth.”

 

 

Multivision Helps Client Win Contract

Multivision once again has been called in to help an infrastructure firm put together a presentation designed to win a large contract with Miami-Dade Water and Sewer.

The 20-minute presentation that helped secure the consulting contract for The Corradino Group relied on Multivision’s ability to explain their unique capabilities, expertise and approach.

Five video modules were created that showcased the client’s ideas and technical approach. These videos helped leave a lasting impression that had the ultimate desired result…. a win!

“Pitching contracts is becoming more of what we do,” says Bob Berkowitz, Multivision president. “We really help our clients present themselves in the best way and convince selection committees that they are right for the job.”

A big part of Multivision’s work includes rehearsing the team and staging the presentation to guarantee “the Perfect Pitch”!

 

Multivision Visualizes Transit in Miami-Dade for MDX

Not many people understand that when they pay a toll at one of five expressways in Greater Miami that have the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) sign on them, they are also helping to invest in the transportation of the future for the community.
When our friends at Bermello Ajamil (B & A) asked us to simplify and explain how tolls and the MDX system work, we realized we didn’t understand it either.
With B & A finishing the strategic plan for transit for Miami-Dade, they knew that a video
needed to be produced to tell the story in 4 minutes.

This was no easy task, but we got it done. Thanks to the Multivision crew and the great work of Actor Eduardo Ramos (the spokesperson we cast), we created a video that shows where toll money goes, and how MDX is helping deal with the transportation issues of the community.
We were so excited to be tasked with this project, and we hope it helps to do the job. Multivision helps keep Miami moving!

When Miami International Airport (MIA) asked the Miami Children’s Museum to design, create and build an interactive experience for children, showcasing the aviation industry, the museum called on Multivision to help create some of the Multi Media displays.

Along with Northstar Advisors and Lexington Designs, Terminal “E” will never be the same for kids.  img_1963

There’s a 3-screen flight simulation exhibit that lets young future pilots fly around Miami and experience the thrill of flight, as well as a multi-screen, multi-sound experience that showcases what goes on in the control tower.

It’s a fun diversion for the traveling family and a great educational enhancement that makes MIA and Miami Children’s Museum a part of the travel experience.

Multivision used multiple GoPro® cameras in a Cessna airplane to create the display, and a total of 28 video and media players are part of the exhibit. img_0525

Beacon Council Annual Meeting VOTES for Miami!

Multivision was behind a series of election-themed video modules that capped off this year’s annual meeting of the community’s economic development agency — The Beacon Council.

Says CEO Bob Berkowitz, “I figured that people are so sick and tired of the political climate right now. It’s a great time to make fun of it for the good of Miami.”

Multivision themed and created several video modules that were fun filled, high energy and ended with a laugh. Community leader Joe Roisman of  Perry Ellis International ended the piece with “I approve this message”.

Multivision also created a thoughtful salute to outgoing Beacon Chairman Ernie Diaz.

“We love working with the Beacon Council,” says Berkowitz (who was on the agency board for six years), “It’s  important to help sell Miami as the best place to live, work and Play.”

Multivision Supports Webcasts for 20th Annual United States Conference on AIDS

Along with Washington DC,   JSI productions and our friends at Maslow- we supplied equipment and a Multivision Team for the 4 day USGA conference at the Diplomat Hotel.  The Conference  brought together  experts  helping  people living with HIV.bg8a3992

One of the main goals of this conference was to use digital technology to amplify HIV resources anywhere and anytime .  They needed digital  activities that kept interested participants   engaged in the USCA conversation whether they  attended the conference or not.  This is where Multivision’s  digital capabilities played an important role. It included live “direct to Facebook” webcasts via Wirecast.

The Multivison crew worked with producer Michelle Samplin-Salgado to help communicate HIV awareness across the country.  The Conference included specialized workshops  that  covered important subjects such as  exploring opportunities and the latest practice model (primary medical, supportive services) on caring for young  women and girls with HIV,  working with transgender and gender non-conforming, strengthening social skills and Safety Crisis management , living with HIV, and even education scopes at Utah’s Refugee Resettlements.  We were honored to be part of this important event.

 

 

A Tasty Project for Multivision – La Paella

We love doing shows about food and casual dining!  I wonder why?   And, when the food being prepared and filmed is as delicious as Paella-it really makes for a fun job.La Paella Counter

That was the case in our recent work for the fast casual restaurant concept-La Paella.  La Paella asked us to create a story that would help them market this “up and coming” Franchise restaurant model.  Today’s consumer  is ready for “La Paella”, an exciting re-interpretation of traditional Spanish dining–in a restaurant setting that is “warm and personal”.  It’s tradition rediscovered, and one that consumers will find satisfying and flavorful.

We were immediately sold on the idea of authentic Spanish recipes in an environment of vibrant colors –modern meets traditional.

We shot in our studio and in Grove Studio’s fabulous kitchen set and cooked the dishes to be photographed right on the spot.  Made to order Paella with  shrimp, mussels, squid, chicken and chorizo. Delicious Bocata sandwiches, tempting Tapas, soups and satisfying salads and desserts.  La Paella Restaurant will offer  the Fresh Spanish experience to a consumer hungry to get away from the ordinary.

Our team captured  the essence of old meets new  with clever photography and creative videography.  We also discusses the extensive training the La Paella team will undergo–comprehensive manuals, training programs and specs to make each restaurant successful and profitable.

Along with interviews with company founder J.D Sauer, Chef Eddie Estevez and famed restaurant marketer Tom Feltenstein- we helped get this great concept launched and got to sample some amazing dishes as a benefit.

Multivision: All About Those Goals

BG8A7725For more years than we care to count, we have been producing the video for the annual Goals Conference for the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce.  We were pleased to once again produce the presentation for 2016 Goals Conference at the  Miami Hilton on June 16th.

Our video was a musical extravaganza starring outgoing Chamber chair Christine Barney, CEO of RBB Public relations.

Our theme, “All About Those Goals,” had Christine and a cast of community leaders dancing and having a ball in the studio. We also shot images all over Miami to show why it’s the best place to live, work and play.

A co-starring role went to Dr. Mark Rosenberg, president of Florida International University, and in- coming Chair of the GMCC, who played along with the fun in preparation for his starring role next year.

We had a blast making the video and it was a terrific effort by the whole Multivision team.

Multivision Creates Point Of View (POV) Videos

Our video work for various museums has won the company awards and recognitions over the years. Our creative at the Smithsonian Institution, Ellis Island, and the Chattanooga History Museum among others, has always has been among our most interesting challenges.

The Miami Children’s Museum called on us to help create some great displays for their newest exhibits, as we had done with The Energy House we created for them under a Department of Energy grant a couple of years ago.

This year, we helped produce several video elements and POV (point-of-view) displays as part of a fabulous new exhibit presented by Baptist Health.

A simulated bicycle tour around Miami lets children ride various bikes, or use their upper body to experience a trip on Miami Beach, Shark Valley and Key Biscayne. It was shot on our special gyro mounted camera system attached to a bicycle, and really gives the sense of riding a bike.

Another interactive video display asks children to “keep moving,” was all shot on Multivision’s green screen stage, and featured talented museum staff dancing, exercising and having fun aimed at getting the participants involved and to make them move.

The Miami Children’s Museum is also creating a display about aviation, and will be housed at the Miami International Airport.

That display includes a multi-screen flight over Miami that is housed in a mock airplane, and was shot with 3 synchronized cameras during a Cessna 172 flight we did over Miami, creating a true POV experience of flight for the participant.
