Hamilton is Channeled at 2018 GMCC Impact Conference

It was June at the Turnberry Isle resort and time for the most important event held each year by the Greater Miami Chamber of commerce. Once again Multivison was called on to produce the central opening show that would help emphasize the theme.

This year a “Hamilton-Like” opening video was our idea and we thought it would be a great way to create the Impact needed to showcase the theme of the event.

 

“I loved the Broadway show and thought how much fun it would be to get members of the Chamber executive committee and leadership in period costumes and do the entire year in review in Hamilton-inspired rap”, says Bob Berkowitz company president and chief creative director. “It’s a tribute to the show and the genius of Lin Manual Miranda.”

 

Costumes were chosen, Lyrics were created and a sound track was started with the help of fabulous singer and Rap Artist Krishton King and other professional studio singers in the chorus.  Rodolfo Cano helped with choreography and a studio shoot was scheduled. We made sure no one coming to the shoot knew what they would be asked to do.

The main shoot date was set in place with the entire video shot in 4K on the Green screen to allow it to be placed onto a Broadway stage by special effect.  Chamber Chairman and Bank of American Area President Gene Shafer was a great sport and played Miami Chamber Impact Man and did a masterful job of lip synching. As did incoming Chamber Chairman Carnival Cruise Lines Vice President Carlos F. Orta.

Cinematography by Matt Leone and post production and graphics by Rene Borroto and Curtis Childs pulled it all together. Studio audio by Pat Howard and Read Fasse. Costume help and Makeup by Alexis Renny

“It was a blast producing and we are  happy it delighted the audience at Turnberry.” remarked Berkowitz.

Multivision produces video that helps the GMCC set new Goals, Goals, Goals

Goals, Goals, Goals again for GMMC Impact Conference.

It was time again for the Chambers’ year end conference and Goals setting session; and just as we have for over three decades we produced the central video and year in review.

“GMCC Chairman (also President of Florida International University) Dr. Mark Rosenberg was the star this year- and we had him dancing and Lip synching to our theme song “Goals Goals Goals”,  Says Bob Berkowitz.

“ He was such a great sport and really got into it.”

Choreographer Marissa Alma Nick and four professional dancers took time from her own show to help us make everyone perform their best.   The Chamber members who participated also had a great time. Special thanks to members of the GMCC Hype committee for showing up and being a big part of the show.

Great camera and DRONE work by Matt Leone made it look great. Excellent editing by Rene Borroto and Curtis Childs pulled it all together with a music track thanks  to the help of Read Fasse and Brian Roberston.  Special thanks for production help to Jessica Anderson and Elizabeth Ferrer.

The closing shot used a classic ‘63 bright red Chevy Impala cruising down the Rickenbacker Causeway with downtown in the distance (skies skillfully made blue even on a cloudy shoot day by colorist Chelsea Fernandez).

“We love the Chamber and look forward to each June we get to show off our  ‘special brand of creative”.

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!

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.
