Special Events

Signature produces audio/video materials for integration into awards events, annual meetings, conventions, fund raising events, public gatherings and other special events. We also cover these events, producing video re-caps, video news releases or live I-Mag multi-camera coverage. Additionally, we produce audio and video teleconferences and pre-produce the materials that will enhance them.

Selected Examples
National Inventors Hall of Fame
Annual Induction Ceremony

Annually, the Inventors Hall of Fame honors a number of inventors in a massive ceremony at its facility in Dayton, Ohio. Signature has pre-produced elements for this special event, including mini-biographies of all inductees, special animation effects and other informational and background videos. All involved extensive research and a sensitivity to the interview process.

Horatio Alger Association
Annual Awards: "Only in America"

The Horatio Alger Association of Distinguished Americans sponsors the countrys largest need-based scholarship program for disadvantaged young people. Each year the Association awards these scholarships, and inducts ten new members as role models for the scholars. These are all people who have overcome great childhood adversity to rise to the top of their profession. Signature produces mini-biographies of the new members, interviews with scholars and other special feature videos. We cover the three day event with our cameras, including some multi-camera I-mag coverage, along with an edited on-site retrospective of the entire week shown at the final ceremony. "Only in America," a series of half-hour PBS programs telling the stories of the new members and scholars has won the following:

Boys and Girls Clubs
Annual Fund Raiser

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Newark enlisted Signature talents to produce a 15 minute centerpiece video for their annual gala fund raiser. On location shooting told the story of the clubs through the eyes of the young people it serves and the adult "heroes" who make it possible. The video continues to be used in individual presentations to raise funds for the organization.

Folger Shakespeare Theatre
Annual Awards Gala

The theatre engaged Signature for multi-camera coverage of its Annual Awards Gala, featuring Dame Diana Rigg and Derek Jacobi. Subsequent to the event, we edited a 15 minute summary video, "Muse of Fire," which continues to be used for publicity and fund raising.
