Is video production a part of your pivot plan as we adjust to a new way of conducting business? Check out the below information provided by Chamber member UnoDeuce Mulitmedia:

What is it? This new service is a video production tool that can be used in conjunction with an organization’s social channels (Facebook, YouTube, etc.)and produced by us from the safety of our office. This allows the organization to fully focus on the live video and we can manage all of the creative and logistical elements and making sure the stream stays live, it broadcasts appropriately and is distributed properly. 

How is it done? We set up the entire program into our platform, using the branding elements provided by the organization. We send a link to participants to log into our platform. We manage the production from our office, including doing a run through prior to the broadcast and starting and stopping the broadcast, as well as manage the technical elements as well, including live social interaction and broadcast interruption. We send an audio and video file for uploads to any platform. We also have captions created that can be sent as a word document for blog posts. We can fully manage YouTube and Podcast platforms for distribution. 

What we will need? High resolution Logo, color palette and font set (Brand Standards Guide recommended) Access to Social Media accounts. Or connection with website developer/marketing director. You to have great internet and audio connection and a well lit room.

Livestream Examples: Podcast/Video Blog - Financial Technology, Live Yoga Training with Just B Yoga, Cooking Demo/How-to with The Foreign Fork, Shopping Live with Katalyst Gallery, Organization Announcement with Cristo Rey Community Center, Annual Fundraiser with Communities in Schools

A Mason Business Partnering With Your Local Chamber to Help Prepare for Reopening Your Workplace

Whether you are preparing to reopen your workplace or you have been open and operating there is rising concern over how we will keep our community safe as we slowly restart the economy. The Chamber office has been closed for some time and like many of you we are looking forward to reopening our doors to the public. The Mason Area Chamber of Commerce feels the impact of COVID-19 with the cancellation of Spring Fling and the uncertainty of future large events. This fundraising opportunity could not come at a better time.

Americhem Sales Company is generously offering a one-time promotion to our members that will raise money for the Chamber fund balance and will in turn provide a safe and clean environment. Pure Spaces is an electrostatic sprayer technology using electrolyzed water to disinfect. HOCI is a nontoxic sanitizing agent that is 100X stronger than bleach. Click below to learn more.
