SolidLine Debuts 13 Videos In Seattle


Late last month, SolidLine's crew was back at OMED -- the American Osteopathic Association's annual conference -- and this year, it was held in beautiful Seattle. We produced three on-site videos for the AOA which were shown throughout the week to kick off and wrap up the conference. We also debuted seven videos for the American Osteopathic Foundation which we worked on in the weeks preceding the conference; those videos were shown at AOF's Honors black-tie event where prestigious awards were given to osteopathic students and physicians. The crew worked hard to deliver a set of awesome videos for the AOA & AOF, and the results were a great success!

"SolidLine makes it easy to produce bold, impactful videos," states AOA's Amy Bolivar. "Really, they make you look good! They take charge of the creative development process, pitching modern ideas and bringing unique video concepts in their proposals. They spearhead scheduling, permitting, and all the many details so you don't have to worry about a thing. And they're accommodating and responsive throughout rounds of editing and revising - even when we have lots of nitpicky changes. Greg and Mike are fun to work with too. Highly recommended!"

Mecum's Gone Farmin' Iowa Premiere Debuts Next Week
Earlier this month, SolidLine produced Mecum's Gone Farmin' Vintage Tractor Auction in Davenport, Iowa. The 3-day auction will be edited into eight 1-hour shows and broadcasted on RFD-TV. The first four TV shows are already cut and ready for broadcast, and the first episode will debut on RFD-TV next Tuesday, November 25th at 4:30 pm Central. The 7-camera live production certainly is a feat of logistics that takes 12 SolidLine crew to pull off... and of course they always make it look easy! Don't miss the Iowa Premiere every Tuesday with episode replays the following Saturday.

SLM's Director of Post Production, Michael Kromm states, "It really is a whole team effort to pull this off. The Post department relies heavily on Production to get the show right in the field so we can QC and deliver the shows to RFD Traffic Department on schedule. And so far, it's worked out great."
