Promo: Panacast Demo

The “other” short promo from October 2012 that we produced for Altia Systems in Cupertino to launch their Panacast panoramic live streaming camera. Produced by VOM Productions in cooperation with Fog City PicturesSan Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking and Horizon Communications. Full discussion after the jump.

This was the second part of a multi-promo shoot (go check out part one if you haven’t already). Footage was shot in and around the Altia Systems offices, and a nearby Yiassoo restaurant in Cupertino. Editing by Randy Hall and Jeremiah Birnbaum. Cinematography by Cameron Lockwood. Swing grips were Navjyot Bandiwadekar, Wusi Liu, and Dexter Marsh-Taylor. Voiceover by Nicky Vallee. Original music by Ransom Rath.

What Randy had to say about the project
This was a great opportunity to in very short order tell a compelling story about this new technology. Jeremiah was really spearheading the production including directing the shoot on location, and I was in charge of the edit and post-production of the piece.
Here's an update from April 2013

UPDATE: April 2013 —

What has made this video even more compelling was that it was used in conjunction with Altia Systems’ successful year end Kickstarter campaign in 2012, raising over $49,000 (with a $15,000 target) and successfully raising interest and awareness in their product! Panacast also just won the Demo God award in 2013, which is no laughing matter! We’re just happy to have had a part to play in promoting this up-and-coming telepresence player!

The Kickstarter video is here:

And some Twitter love from some heavy hitters in tech:

We look forward to following Altia Systems’ and PanaCast’s ongoing success!
