The Crew Corner

What's your idea of a perfect date?

Mike Petrik, Art Director
Well, uh, first I'd take her shopping to stores she wants to shop in, and then we'd do a little lunch, probably at the Cheese Haus, followed by some golfing. And then at night, we'd take in an opera, probably Die Fledermaus, and then I'd follow it up with a drive to a secluded beach where I'd pop on the radio and we could slow-dance 'til the sun came up.

Tracy Granzyk, Managing Director, Healthcare
How about anything that includes a man that is employed? No wait--far too cynical...

John Courchane, Editor
Me and Jenna were doing wine and Netflix on Friday nights before Netflix and Chill was a thing, so I'll take that.

Ed Boe, Director of Photography
Food possibly. Then sitting. Maybe looking. Depends.

Allison Miller, Production Coordinator
A date with my pillows in bed.

Michael Kromm, Director of Post Production
Carry out and a movie at home.

Greg Vass, Executive Producer
Anything sans children.

SolidLine Shoots 48 Interviews for DHL

This month, the SolidLine crew was back in Miami to film at DHL's 2016 Americas Management Conference, and we officially beat our DHL interview record! In just 4 days we interviewed 48 executive employees about DHL's business initiatives and how they're going to make 2016 another successful year. Our crew also shot b-roll footage around the conference as attendees networked together at workshops and brainstorming sessions. In the coming weeks, we'll be editing videos from the footage to be shared with DHL employees around the world.
"We had a very busy video production schedule at the annual DHL Americas Management Conference in Coral Gables," states DHL Director of Corporate Communications Jennifer Pakradooni. "We will produce a post management conference video summary in addition to 26 shorter video vignettes to be used throughout 2016. The SolidLine crew worked more than 12 hours each day to make it happen, and had smiles on their faces the whole time! SolidLine always gets the job done, with the highest quality, no matter what the circumstances!
SolidLine To Produce 5 Videos for Baker Tilly

We are happy to be working again on a series of videos with our pals at Baker Tilly, a full service accounting and advisory firm that's headquartered in Chicago. Just last week, we were at their Southfield, Michigan location to film their incoming CEO for an upcoming partner event and for four cultural pieces that highlight the firm's goals related to growth, collaboration, brand, and people. We enjoy working with Baker Tilly and are honored to make their video dreams come true!
"Working with SolidLine is great," states Matt Berglind, Communications Director at Baker Tilly. "They're timely and there when we need them. We know they will get the job done quickly and creatively with new graphics concepts that complement our video messages. And they work around our schedules and locations -- that's really important."
SLM Crew Takes Time to Enjoy Paczkis
Paczki Day came and went, and every year the SLM crew partakes in celebrating the day, because why would we ever stop ourselves from indulging? Although there is some debate about when Paczki Day specifically falls, we're not here to argue... we just want to eat some pastries. Purchased from the local Glazed and Infused donut shop, the crew sunk their teeth into three delicious options seen below. The crew favorite was the double chocolate followed by the Boston Cream-filled pink one. The plum jelly-filled paczki came in last; a unique pastry, we just weren't really diggin' it. If you have never tried one of these little devils, mark your calendar as a reminder for Fat Tuesday next year, and treat yourself to one (or three)!
