MedStar Health Releases SolidLine Produced Video, "Please See Me"

Recently, SolidLine Media had the pleasure of collaborating on a special project with our friends at MedStar Health. Focused on the importance of maintaining patient safety in the healthcare setting, MedStar Health's message is one that literally everyone can relate to: a strong relationship between the patient and healthcare provider will open the door to discussions that can prevent patient harm. Filmed in a stunning Chicago theatre, "Please See Me" is presented in spoken word poetry style and explores the value in a two-way open, honest relationship between patients and caregivers. Everyone involved with the project is extremely pleased with how the video turned out, and we are excited to share this piece with friends, family members, and colleagues!


"Please See Me lays bare the perspectives of the most important communication dynamic in healthcare-that of care provider and patient," states MedStar VP of Quality and Safety David Mayer, MD. "It also reflects on our promise to patients as care providers to engage in meaningful conversations so we better understand and honor their needs, values, preferences and goals. The crew at SolidLine did an amazing job and was able to achieve this important message in a theatrical video that is both powerful and fun to watch."


SLM Paints the Town at Avid Connect & NAB in Vegas

SolidLine's Director of Post Production, Michael Kromm, and SLM Editor, John Courchane, recently embarked on a journey to Sin City where Avid Connect & NAB were held. Known for its 1,000,000+ net square feet of Show Floor, NAB boasts an impressive reputation in the production industry, and people from all over the world fly in to attend its excellence. The Avid Connect is what Kromm and John were most pumped for in anticipation of new Avid software releases. At the conference, they attended educational breakout sessions, played with some sweet new production toys, mingled with fellow post production nerds, and evidently ate some delicious tacos. Check out John's blog about his top 5 Avid Connect moments here.
