We’re seeing an uptrend in demand for video clips featuring women in roles that exhibit leadership and empowerment. We’re calling on you to capture scenes with women leading in workplace environments and professional settings.

Customers/Sectors: Banking and Investment, Insurance, Telecommunications, Technology, Internet, Shipping, Credit Cards
 

Shot List Thought-Starters:

• Executive Team meeting in a board room or around a conference table in an open space
 
• Executive leader giving presentation to staff using a video monitor to demonstrate metrics as well as video conferencing
 
• Portraits – individual and group for testimonial usage

Additionally, try running your scenes outside of the office, such as a meeting in a cafe, in a corporate jet, and other environments that you wouldn’t typically consider. You might also want to consider themes like working late at the office. Remember, you don’t need to feel locked into the thought-starters, they are just meant to help inspire your process.
