Well done Elevate Phoenix!

I was proud to provide voice over services for the 3rd Annual Father’s Day Match For A Cause which benefits Elevate Phoenix. As the edits of the pre-recorded event were completed, I wrote the scripts and was the voice of the on-course commentator.

With a potential audience of more than 84 million households, this year’s match featured Tom Lehman and son Thomas against Lee Janzen and his son Connor at the Westin Kierland Golf Club.

In case you missed it or want to watch it again – here’s the link to view it – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsgK4sgruBg.

Elevate Phoenix is an amazing organization started and headed by Tom Lehman that serves 5,000 students annually. Their mission as a non-profit is to deliver long-term, life-changing relationships with urban youth by employing a holistic approach to meet each child’s needs.

To Elevate Phoenix, that means full-time salaried teacher-mentors, year-round programming, cross-age mentoring and a long-term relational approach in four areas: accredited classes, mentoring, reading & literacy, and graduation and post-secondary plans.

They teach vision, courage, respect, caring, responsibility, positive work ethic and integrity. The students learn career mindedness, decision making, goal setting, communication, leadership and problem solving skills.

There is still time to donate to this amazing organization! If you’d like to learn more about them, visit https://elevatephoenix.org/.

This is my third year helping out and I can’t wait for the 2023 Father’s Day Match For A Cause!

Baerclaw Productions gets cheesy in Wisconsin!

The Baerclaw Productions team recently coordinated a multi-day shoot in Wisconsin utilizing a seven-person local video production crew and after spending almost a week on the ground – I know who cut the cheese!

It’s the great people that work in various settings across multiple facilities… and they cut, shred, melt and ship a lot of cheese!

The goal was to create a new promotional video that took the entire video production team to two different sites where we had four cameras running including a pair of Sony FS7’s, one on a Ready Rig, and a 4k drone.

We even put a GoPro inside a popcorn tumbler to showcase the flavorings being added to the popcorn.

We did a number of interviews using two camera’s, one on a slider to give an amazing profile view, and so much broll of every station and room in both facilities!

If you’re ready to share your story with the world, give us a call at 602-789-8396 and let’s start the process of creating your new promotional video!

Baerclaw Productions reaches gold status with TriStar Gold!

When TriStar Gold, a Canadian minerals exploration company that advances mining projects from exploration to production with an emphasis on precious metals deposits in the Americas, needed to update their corporate video to reflect the very latest information about a 100% owned gold project in Brazil at Castelo de Sonhos, or Castle of Dreams in English, they turned to the team at Baerclaw Productions to produce their latest video.

Using a combination of an in-office video shoot, existing assets and zoom interviews with key players and investment analysts from around the world, the Baerclaw Productions team handled all facets of pre- and post-production services to create an updated corporate video to inform potential and existing investors of what was going on at the site – and there’s a lot going on!

Following a pre-feasibility study at Castelo de Sonhos, it’s estimated that there is more than 1.4 million of ounces in the ground at CDS!

TriStar Gold is moving towards construction while focusing on ESG and making sure that this project is a win-win for everyone from investors, employees, contractors and of course the residents of the area.

Ford Motor Company Fund chooses Baerclaw Productions

Ford Motor Company Fund is part of an amazing program called ‘Ford Driving Skills for Life’ and when they brought their program to Phoenix, they turned to Baerclaw Productions to help them spread their message through the local media.

Baerclaw Productions was on-site early in the five-day event to gather video and interviews with both participants, their parents and of course representatives from the Ford Motor Company Fund. Those video elements were then condensed into a video news release which was made available to all of the television stations so that they could help spread the word.

The free half-day courses provide hands-on experience for newly licensed drivers to improve their skills in four key areas – hazard recognition, vehicle handling, speed and space management. They also talked with the young drivers about distracted and impaired driving.

Since 2003, the Ford Driving Skills for Life has helped more than one million drivers in all 50 states and 46 countries around the world. For more information on the program, you can visit www.drivingskillsforlife.com.

Baerclaw Productions helps a local inventor with his KickStarter campaign

Kickstarter is a great way for people with a great idea get to the next level but to do it, you need video production support and that’s where Baerclaw Productions comes in.

After a skiing accident when he was younger, Adam Reeback has spent his life dealing with a bad back that causes him a lot of pain whenever he has to sit, even for a few minutes. Most situations can be dealt with except for one place where sometimes you don’t have a choice and that’s when he’s sitting on the toilet.

After years of work and tinkering with different designs, Adam Reeback invented a toilet seat with back support built into the underside of the lid – BRILLIANT!

With his prototype complete, he turned to Baerclaw Productions to help him share his story with the KickStarter universe and the world beyond. We created a series of videos for his campaign and website which are now live. If you’d like to learn more about the MeraShell Lumbar Back Support Toilet Lid, here’s a link to his KickStarter campaign – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/merashell/merashell-lumbar-back-support-toilet-lid.

Fortune 500 company Frontier Communications selects Baerclaw Productions

Frontier Communications is the latest Fortune 500 company to partner with Baerclaw Productions as their video production partner. This project involved a series of short videos to talk directly with their independent sales force because their reps were telling Frontier that they wanted to hear more from the company and Baerclaw Productions was the solution to use the power of video to deliver the message.

Their host for the videos briefly highlighted all of the things that Frontier Communications is doing to make being a valued partner easier and how they were committed to creating a partnership where everyone wins.

Frontier Communications Video Shoot 2

The videos, which were shot in a studio utilizing two Sony XDCam cameras and a teleprompter, covered all of the exciting products, packages, and bundles for all things internet that Frontier is rolling out including their state-of-the-art solutions and extremely competitive pricing to arm their partner community with the tools needed to win with Frontier Communications.

The ultimate goal is to reinforce Frontiers’ place as a premier partner for their independent sales force, a company that they want to do business with again and again and one that they are proud to align with.

Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition is made up of SUPERHERO’S

That’s the theme for this year’s virtual gala and Baerclaw Productions is honored to once again help them share their story.

No Senior Left Isolated – that’s the vision of Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition (VVCC) and with the help of hundreds of volunteers, they provide support for adults, or their ‘neighbors’, who need assistance to maintain their dignity, independence and quality of life at home – without charge.

The services they provide include transportation to medical and other appointments, rides to the grocery store, shopping, and other errands, business assistance such as bill paying and sorting, and handy person help. Volunteers also provide respite assistance to in-home caregivers and patient scribe assistance during medical appointments.

Since 1992, they have been making an impact in the lives of thousands of neighbors around the Verde Valley and that became even more important with the onset of Covid-19.

What started with thousands of wellness check phone calls quickly evolved into a program to provide assistance in navigating the vaccination registration process, provide transportation to and from the resulting appointments, and ultimately a program to provide those vaccinations in the neighbors’ homes. According to Kent Ellsworth, the Executive Director of VVCC, “We have many older adults who are homebound, cannot drive, and are not able to navigate the online vaccination registration process. We want to do whatever we can to relieve this stress, keep them safe, and get them vaccinated.”

SUPERHERO’S INDEED!

With appropriate safety precautions in place, we interviewed their executive director, a board member, volunteers and of course the people that they serve to better explain why they are SUPERHERO’S.

The end result is their Gala Video, social media clips to promote the event and the organization, a volunteer recruitment video and a video that they can share with potential donors so that they can continue the amazing work that they do!

Duke’s of Air Arizona OTT Commercial

Baerclaw Productions was proud to partner with Marketing With A Flair to produce an OTT commercial for Duke’s of Air Arizona. If you live in the East Valley, you’ve probably seen it.

We started with their existing jingle and came up with the creative to bring it to life using video which meant we had to create a hot and sweaty homeowner who’s AC unit had stopped working.

Get video of a technician arriving on the scene to save the day and take the story from beginning to end.

Here’s a link to one of the versions that we created – Duke’s of Air OTT Commercial

Moving can be a real Baer – pun intended!

After 19 years in North Phoenix, the Baerclaw Productions team has a new den in the Scottsdale Airpark and there were a lot of lessons learned along the way.

Our old office
A glimpse into our new office

1. Don’t keep anything that you haven’t used/touched in more than six months.

2. Offer Up and Craigslist are a great way to sell many of those things and can help pay for the move.

3. While everyone on our team offered to help with the move, we made the right decision and hired professionals to do the heavy lifting.

4. When moving computers, complex edit bays and sound booths, label every cable before the move to make putting it back together so much easier and quicker.

5. You are going to move too much stuff so know where the dumpster is at your new place.

6. Fill out your change of address form with the post office as soon as you can, they are buried and short staffed right now so there’s going to be a delay in getting your mail.

7. Let you vendors know about your move in case their bills get caught up in the previously mentioned postal service delays.

8. Phone and internet service isn’t always just plug and play.

9. Be nice to your new neighbors and let them know that you’ll be settled soon.

10. Celebrate the new office, invite everyone to come by and see it and get back to doing the great work that you’ve always done!
