Wow! 100 years of Rotary in Greeley, Colorado! If you asked me just 2 months ago what Rotary is and where it came from, I’d have no clue.
I’ve vaguely heard of Rotary Club a sparse few times in my life. I really had no idea what it was or what it was for, though….that is until we were hired for this project!
As you watch the video above, you’ll notice that Rotary has a rich history of service above self. Rotary actually started in Chicago in 1905 with a man who invited some of his friends to join a gathering of businessmen for the sole purpose of fellowship. It wasn’t until they met a few times that they decided it could be more than just fellowship…it could also be helping their fellow man! That idea spread to several places in the US and then around the world! One of the early locations was right here in our hometown of Greeley, CO - in 1917!
…that’s the kind of email I love to receive!
A few days ago, I received a request from a board member of one of our top clients. He wanted graphic work on a project for his church. He sent me the email and I got right to work on it (see graphics work above). Here’s why I bring this up – not to brag, but to point out the difference between a small company, like ours, and a big production house – personalized service with a quick turnaround.
One thing I’ve come to expect as a video production professional: this job takes you to some unusual places, doing unusual things and meeting unusual people…and animals.
The good people at Dairy Tech, a dairy business here in Colorado, have been coming up with new and fun ways to promote their beneficial calf products! The last video we did for them (see last week’s blog) was a jingle combined with a humorous dialogue. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun!
This shoot (see video above) also had it’s challenges, but they might not be the kind you’d expect.
