Metro Productions / Karen Images Launch Strategic Partnership with
Event Production Services
The sizzle reel above demonstrates the capabilities that come from the partnership between Atlanta’s best commercial photographer Karen Images, live broadcaster Metro Productions, and North America’s premier design and event production company, Event Production Services, EPS.
For 25 years Karen Burns has run a successful commercial photography business serving the needs of Atlanta’s C-Suite executives providing headshots on location, event documentation, product photography, food photography, environmental portraits, custom stock photography of corporate employees performing on the job, branded fine art for public spaces, and a passion for architectural photography and interior design. When video was added to Canon’s line of digital cameras her husband, Troy Burns, also a commercial photographer, made the transition from still photography to audio and video. In 2014, the couple released their first documentary College Park A Purposeful Renaissance which aired on PBA 30 in Atlanta after creating a 43-image art installation of the city of College Park which was installed in the co-working space Club E on Main Street in College Park. Their services grew to include FAA-licensed aerial imaging and multi-camera live productions streaming over 5G cellular to YouTube Live and MS Teams in locations that have no internet connection.
Troy was introduced to Scott Whitfield of Event Production Services while producing the 4-26-23 All Team Meeting for Porsche Cars North America. He recognized along with Scott the value of services that a strategic partnership could offer their clientele. EPS specializes in planning and executing world-class event productions for their clients. Scott’s expertise includes crafting theatrical lighting, professional-quality audio and video, elaborate staging, stylized room decor, projections, LED walls, and more. Together they bring all the elements of audio, video, still photography, stage design, light, power, sound, and live 5G streaming from a single source of production professionals.
Southern Pickleball Sponsored by Coca-Cola United
Metro Productions partnered with our friends at Pickleball Productions in February to help design and produce this nine-hour tournament, conducted by Southern Pickleball, streamed live from Wyomia Tyus Olympic Park in Griffin, Georgia to YouTube and Facebook for Coca-Cola United. The demo reel below highlights not only the incredible play for the gold medal, but also demonstrates the quality of our production, the sponsor placements, product placement, and the onsite promotional spots. Metro Productions now offers live streaming through LRT bonded 5G cellular technology with or without an internet connection.
Near Live Production
Karen Images and Metro Productions partnered with Event Production Services to support this near-live production for Andritz. Near live is by far the best production method available for critical broadcasts of presentations to share with your audience. The ability to start and stop the production to correct technical language, typos in PowerPoint, or the overall delivery of the message is what allows near-live productions to perfect your project with comfort and ease.
This production included stock photography of Andritz employees, a three-camera live switch of six presentations with confidence monitors, rear projection, and image magnification allowing everyone involved in the project to see the show in real-time on a 65″ LED while it was being filmed. This was followed by three fireside chats in front of a step-and-repeat to end the day.
The masters were finalized the next week to include branded media and executive titles before the launch date of their media campaign. The near-live production model not only allows you to perfect your message, it is also a less expensive production method because fewer crew members are required and everything comes together in a post-production environment that was edited live during filming.
2019 Skyhoundz World Canine Disc Championship
Metro Productions had the opportunity to film the 2019 and 2022 Skyhoundz World Canine Disc Championships (SWCDC) for Hyperflite. In March of 2020 when the covid lockdown began Troy reached out to Peter Bloeme to create a 44-minute TV edit to market to network TV. After countless hours of back-and-forth editing, music selection, voice-over, titling, scripting, etc., we had a finished piece that we tried to market. While we felt strongly that the finished show was at least as entertaining as the other “sports” being aired, we couldn’t find anyone to take on the month-long production which would allow us to produce the 2022 SWCDC that is also in the can waiting for editing and professional talent to record the voiceovers.
As we look forward to the 2023 SWCDC, we released the 2019 edition following the original plan of it being sponsored by CHEENGZ Disc Golf through our Facebook pages and YouTube channels. You can view it here: 2019 Skyhoundz World Canine Disc Championship – YouTube
If you enjoy it, please let everyone know about it, and feel free to share the information/links. We’d love to find an anchor sponsor to fund this level of production for the 2023 SWCDC.
FURTHER INFORMATION: Interested in becoming a sponsor of the Skyhoundz Championship or producing a show with our content? Your sponsorship will help fund our six-camera live switched two-day production with all ISO audio/video files recorded and linked via time code. Please contact us at [email protected]
Mini documentaries tell the story of the important work your company does. Pressure washing Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta was a monumental job Wise Guys wanted to document. The video production involved still photography, FAA Licensed aerial imaging, and steadycam footage before and after the work was completed. By the time Wise Guys finished, Bobby Dodd had not looked this good in years!
Social Marketing Videos
Testimonial videos are just good marketing! Nothing makes a brand look better than a genuine fan who is also a client and can share the value the brand has added to their life. This video production was filmed at the Atlanta Realtor Center in Sandy Springs, Georgia over the course of four hours. We conducted 7 testimonial interviews, set up a sample class filmed with a drone, and recorded one of the courses in action with 3 cameras and a steadycam. By the time we were finished seven sixty-second video testimonials were produced and CCIM could not have been prouder to share them with their social audience on LinkedIn.
