USHCC Convention

USHCC 2013 Convention   ZHM had a wonderful time at the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) 2013 National Convention in Chicago from September 15-17. The convention spanned two and a half days, during which time ZHM was able to capture over 20 hours of footage and edit it all down to a 3-minute video that highlighted the experience. This year’s convention marked the first time that ZHM produced a video on site for the USHCC. The highlight reel that we produced showcased the USHCC and the annual convention as the country’s largest networking venue for Hispanic businesses and Fortune 1000 corporations. Our reel was shown at the USHCC Gala, the last event of the convention. It commemorated the largest gathering of Hispanic business leaders in America, which brought together over 7,000 Hispanic business owners, corporate executives, chamber leaders, and public officials. In preparation for the USHCC 2014 convention, we also produced a 60 second commercial that we shot in Salt Lake City with Governor Gary R. Herbert and USHCC President and CEO Javier Palomarez. It was showcased at the end of this year’s convention, and is already on-line, promoting next year’s convention. As a Hispanic woman-owned small business, ZHM is proud to be part of this exciting time for American businesses. Latina-owned businesses are the fastest growing business segment in the country. We would like to congratulate the USHCC on a successful 2013 convention, and we can’t wait to capture the milestones of the convention again in 2014! – Roman Holton, Producer

The Lens

It seems these days as though anyone out there who can afford a “prosumer” camera considers him or herself a video producer. This blog post is not for them. If, however, you’re a DP, Producer, Gaffer, or Editor with broadcast or film credentials, we’d like to invite you to have a real discussion with us about what’s out there on the market in terms of broadcast quality and cinema cameras. We want to hear your comments about everything from Digital Cinema cameras to ENG cameras. What’s your opinion about the Sony F3? Is the p2 format going out of style? What do you think is the most important news on digital formats? And, if you haven’t seen the Keanu Reeves film Side by Side, you need to see it! Check out the trailer here. – Roman Holton, Producer
