Video Services Help Job Seeker Separate From the Pack

  Friday, April 10th, 2009

An out of work Human Resource Executive recently contacted Chicago Producers video department to assist with a unique presentation. Director of Video Services for Chicago Producers, Bill Vala explains how this video project came to be; "our client contacted us with an unusual idea – he wanted to make a Video Resume.  We filmed him against a green screen at our downtown video recording studio on Wednesday April 1st.  No April fools here.” 

After digitizing the video, Chicago Producers editors chose the best segments from each of the views – full body and talking head.  Next the green background was removed and a simple white and black background put in its place.  An online preview was sent to the client for revisions or approval.  The client approved the video on April 6th, "I thought it was very good. I did not want to come across like an actor. Sometimes being perfect is too smooth.Please call me so we can talk about our next step." 

The next step was to Author the DVD and duplicate 50 copies with printing on the disc face.  Our one-stop shop capabilities allowed us to turn around this project very quickly without outsourcing any part.  Within 6 business days by April 9th the client had received all 50 discs and was very pleased.  “Bill, the package came as you said yesterday. All I can say is this whole process starting from my first call to you to the end was wonderful. Looking for work is difficult. I hope this will give me the edge I need. I’m so proud of this video and your team. I could not ask for any more. Great work! I wish you and your company the very best.”
