Using three HD cameras for a fast paced discussion with the companies principles, and a slider, time-lapse, and even some underwater equipment, we had a wonderful time filming and producing this profile for BioMASON and their investors. We even animated their logo to visually represent their technology.
This is the second video we have done with BioMASON and look forward to the next one, their lab and offices are so very cool.
One of the best parts of being a production company is having the chance to meet and work with folks from all walks of life. This year we had the chance to fly to Arizona and meet Mark Woodson and his wife. Mark is an engineer that has made positive engineering changes in his hometown of Flagstaff. Working closely with ASCE once again, we created a short profile of Mark, The American Society of Civil Engineers 2016 President. Produced by Beery Media, and screened in New York City’s Times Square Marriott at their 2015 Conference. You can see the results below. Congratulations Mark!
Beery Media spent part of the summer in the Swamps of rural North Carolina producing, “Selling Out Sampson County” with The Dogwood Alliance. This is a powerful and moving short film that takes us high above, to right down into the swamps and forests of North Carolina, highlighting the potential loss of our state’s beauty.
“Communities across the Southern US are no stranger to extractive industries that threaten their health and quality of life. A new video, “Selling Out Sampson County” by Dogwood Alliance investigates the impact that the latest threat, wood pellet manufacturing, has on the rural South and inspires people around the region to organize to stop this growing threat.
It is an all too familiar story. New industries approach local governments promising jobs and assorted economic benefits; instead, they extract natural resources, damage the environment, bring just a handful of low-paying jobs, degrade the economic vitality of the area and impact public health and community well-being for decades.”
