  2. BEHIND THE SCENES: AN INTERN’S EYE-VIEW OF THE PGi STAGENext 2015 SHOOT

    ON SET WITH PGi AND ECG With the sun barely up and the temperature hovering around early morning toilet seat levels, members of the ECG team headed over to the Terminus Building in Buckhead, Georgia, home of Premiere Global Services (PGi), last week to shoot a short video for the company’s upcoming STAGENext 2015 kick-off event. PGi is an Atlanta-based corporation that specializes in producing collaboration technology. This being my first visit to their space, to me it looked like a regular office building from the outside, but soon turned out to be filled with a multitude of enthusiastic workers who actively participated in the production, both onscreen and off. The day began with us unloading our gear and fervently thanking the powers that be...

  4. BEHIND THE SCENES: THE VIDEO PRODUCTION INTERNSHIP PROCESS

    STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM… Anyone who has ever chased a career knows that it is often an uphill battle. Your first job in the industry, in all likelihood, will be working as the lowest of the low; the bottom of the pyramid. Unless your lifelong dream is to make copies and fetch coffee, you have a long and winding road ahead of you. But worry not, because the road is there. The important thing is that you are there with a fresh outlook on life, ready to work. Working is easy if you have the drive and the right environment. The hard part, many would argue, is landing that first position and getting your foot in the door. The video production industry (and Atlanta video...
  5. A FATHER CREATED THIS FROM OVER 12,000 HOME VIDEOS …

    PRESS THE PLAY BUTTON TO WATCH THE VIDEO! IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MOMENTS! It all started when my wife, Courtney, and I were having a conversation about home movies, stemming from an event earlier in the day. We had taken our sons out sledding over the Christmas holiday and I was working hard to frame the perfect shot. I could see how it was mildly annoying to both the kids and my wife, but they should be used to this by now. Over the past four years I have shot over 12,000 videos of my two children: Dylan (4 and a half) and Levi (10 months). I finally got the angle I wanted and began to pull the kids. The shot was great, in fact it’s shot...
  6. BEHIND THE SCENES OF RAPPER P-DASH’S MUSIC VIDEO “GEORGE STINNEY”

    Posted by
    /
    Atlanta-produced music video about the trial and death of George Stinney released. The ECG Productions office is always dark. From an outsider’s perspective, you might think they were never open. Having been with ECG for a little over 4 months now, I can assure you that this is not the case. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to find the offices empty. Just like a beehive filled with workers, the ECG Productions office and studio are constantly buzzing. I knocked on Jay’s door and was quickly met with a, “come in!” Just like the rest of the ECG Productions space, I have never seen the overhead lights on in Jay’s office. It must be a video thing, because come to think of it, I have...

      The new age of corporate video production is explored. Jason Sirotin: All right, welcome to the Naked Unicorn Podcast I’m Jason Sirotin I’m here with the partners of ECG, Jason Marraccini, and Trey Gregory. How you guys doing this morning? Jason Marraccini: Doing good. I could use a coffee, I’m kind of coveting Trey’s coffee. Trey Gregory: This coffee is delicious. Jason Marraccini: It looks good….. Jason Sirotin: Today we’re going to be talking about corporate video, the new age of corporate video production. We had a brief conversation about it yesterday so I think that there’s going to be a lot of cool things to discuss. I think the number one thing that we should talk about is the perception of the way...
  8. BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE ARMORY’S “IF I EVER”

    Posted by
    /
    Full-body-painted aliens and rock bands: just your typical Saturday at ECG Productions. The Armory’s music video shoot was my first project with ECG Productions, and it did not disappoint. I showed up bright and early – I have an almost irrational fear of being late – and waited for the rest of the crew to arrive. The crew arrived first, then the talent, and then the band. We got right to work; when you have three girls who need paint on 100% of their bodies, there is no time to waste. As a PA, I stayed busy gathering and preparing props, sorting through gels, tending to talent and making lunch arrangements. Once the shoot began, I was given the task of taking set stills, which...
