Promotional Filming begins!

Over the weekend, Event & Media Tech and Glass River Media teamed up to begin the filming process for several production videos.  The series will cover a broad range of services, team members and operational procedures that make Event & Media Tech the family and business it has become! The filming was a fun team building experience, that many of the full time staff got to participate in.

Glass River Media took tremendous stress off the afternoon. There was normal business to attend to coinciding with the filming and they understood that completely. They have great artistic vision and can present ideas in an easily digestible manner. We are tremendously excited to continue gathering footage and focusing the script!

A Shining Light on Our Recent Project

Light Project

A Night in Venice

This weekend Event & Media Technologies had the pleasure of working with NYX Entertainment. We were tasked with providing a lighting solution for “A Night in Venice”. With a huge backdrop of the canal, the creative and technical teams transformed a gymnasium into a genuine European dreamscape. To create ambient light, we used LED par lights facing down which simulated street lamps. As a secondary source for ambient light, string lights were hung between the street lamp uprights. To finalize the look, stars were shined onto the ceiling via standard ellipsoidal lights. All in all, we were honored to be chosen for the project, and pleased with the results.
