Blog: A Different Approach to the Honoree Video

We’ve all been to events where someone was being honored for their contributions to an organization or cause and they showed a brief video to introduce that person. Not to detract from the accomplishments of said honoree, but, those introductory videos tend to follow a very similar formula: talking heads singing the praises of the honoree with a lot of adjectives with still photos using the classic Ken Burns effect as b-roll.  Our friends at the University of Cincinnati Foundation wanted to avoid this in the video for their 2016 Chairman’s Award winner and our solution was to give it some dramatic movie trailer flair. Check out the result and enjoy.
