Alcon Laboratories  - Talking Heads & Interviews

I worked as a Video Producer for Alcon Laboratories, a leading Eye care company for over five years. I oversaw the production of hundreds, if not thousands, of videos. On average, we would produce 300 - 500 videos a year. Lots of these videos were filmed in our video studio, and many were filmed on-location. Below you will find some examples of some of these video projects that I worked on over the years.

Alcon Associate Workshop

Director, Producer, Editor, DP

In 2017 I oversaw the production and post-production of a 2 part video series with the Alcon Executive Leadership Team to empower associates during an on-boarding meeting. Overall these two videos had their difficulties. From the production standpoint, scheduling time with each ELT member was challenging, and aligning with dates that worked for us to go on-location and film were challenging. We opted to film a number of their interviews in our studio on a chroma-key background. Thus, the post-production on this project was somewhat challenging for us to complete, given that we had to key out several backgrounds. Aside from the challenges mentioned above, we also had an accelerated deadline for this project. We were given about 2-3 weeks to conduct all of the production shoots. From the post-production side, we had roughly two weeks to complete these two videos.

Mission Trip Videos

Editor, Motion Graphics

I edited these videos for the Corporate Communications team for Mission Trips that Alcon Associates would take every year. We were provided with photos and videos and then tasked with putting together a moving story.

Jennie Garth - The Eye Solution

 Director, Producer, Editor, DP

In 2014 we filmed a special Kids Vision For Life video with Jennie Garth in Fort Worth, Texas. I oversaw the production and post-production needs of this project. For the narrative shoots with Jennie, we opted to film her in our studio on a chroma-key rather than on-location due to timing constraints.

Alcon TV

Director, Producer, Editor, Motion Graphics

In 2014 and 2015, we produced a quarterly broadcast with Alcon CEO Jeff George. Each broadcast had a 2-week turn-around, and I oversaw the planning, filming, and post-production needs. From a post-production standpoint, one of the biggest challenges was the fast turn-around needed to deliver this video in a timely fashion. Before filming, I had prepped the name-keys, b-roll, map animations, and beginning/end credits to lay them into the final video during the post quickly. This video series later went on to win 3 Telly Awards and a Creativity Award.

Creative Services Sizzle Videos

Director, Producer, Editor, DP

We filmed several Alcon associates around the campus and then put together a sizzle video to showcase our production services. Here is a collection of 3 videos I filmed and put together for the team.

Mike Ball - Facebook LinkedIn

Director, Producer, Editor, DP

This was a message from Alcon CEO Mike Ball for the Facebook and LinkedIn teams. We filmed this in the studio on a green screen and then captured the background footage remotely.

Novartis CEO Joseph Jimenez

Producer, Editor

This is a video message from Novartis CEO Joseph Jimenez as he discusses the Q1 2015 results. I oversaw the production with CRM studios and then completed the edit on this particular video project.

EMEA Altitude Meeting Video

Director, Producer, Editor, DP

This was a message from Mark Lucas. We filmed this in our studio against a white backdrop. I had outfitted our studio so that we could capture these types of shoots very quickly.

On-Location - Doctor Interviews

Director, Producer, Editor, DP

I filmed several doctors by myself or with the help of my colleague while on-location. This first video was shot on location at ASCRS in Chicago. I ran everything on this production, including cameras, lighting, audio, and conducted the interviews. I also did the post-production editing on this on my flight back home. The second video was shot on location in Las Vegas. I operated all three cameras for this particular shoot, as well as lighting and audio. I also did all of the post-production on this specific project. The third video is interview that we did with Dr. Ani in our cafeteria.

Customer Experience Video

Director, Producer, Editor

This was a video we filmed and put together for the Customer Experience team.
