Casa Teresa Awareness Video

, , ,

Casa Teresa has been home to over 5,000 women and children over the past 35 years providing high quality training and education programs in the areas of prenatal care and parenting, health and nutrition education tailored to the needs of each resident, all within the security and comfort of a loving and supportive residential setting.

They came to The Showpros to help create an awareness video to extend their grant and fundraising reach, promote their incredible work within the community and attract women looking for help.

After extensive meetings with their leadership and staff, The Showpros created the script, shot more than 30 hours of video on-location, and through post-production crafted a warm and compelling story of what Casa Teresa accomplishes for their residents.

It is a great story – and the sort of job we relish – helping people connect and acknowledging the incredible efforts already being made.

2012 Kelley Blue Book Resale Value Awards

, , , , ,

Each year The Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards recognize automakers’ outstanding achievements in producing vehicles that best retain their value over the first five years (60 months) of new-vehicle ownership. Our role was to help KBB create an exciting and vibrant atmosphere that spoke to the quality of people and automobiles they would honor. In addition to presenting the awards KBB required a highly social space for their VIPs to mingle in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere.

Our team produced the multi-HD screen award presentation videos, orchestrated lighting, sound systems, music and provided stage direction and show control.

TEDx Orange Coast 2012

, , , ,

The organizers of TEDx Orange Coast had a mission – “To help turn inspiring ideas in action.” What they needed was a venue, stage and show as inspiring as the ideas presented. Within the world-class backdrop of the 2,000-seat Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall they brought together more than 30 presenters (spoken word, music, dance and audience participation).

The Showpros was tapped to direct the event, provide stage management and coordinate the multiple professionals and vendors supporting the day. Showpros managed pre-show scripting and production, move-in, rehearsals, and stage management, lighting, sound and multi-media projection.

During the course of the event our team installed several hundred yards of ethernet cable to accommodate the many technologies being used by the presenters including confidence monitors, controlling their presentation from the stage via iPad, and streaming the event live (three HD video cameras).
