Every company is helped by referrals, so we must start this post with a big shout out to Steve Paino, of Total Production Services in Radnor, Pa., who referred us for this job. And the job was a town hall meeting for Otsuka Pharmaceuticals, the $500 billion-plus pharmaceutical company headquartered in Japan. The company has been around since 1964, and is probably most known for its product Abilify, which is used for mental health issues.

But this shoot was in the company’s offices in Rockville, Md. Our contact was Ms. Jacki Ann Dempsey, Associate Director Production Services, Infrastructure Operations Services.

Otsuka wanted to produce an internal meeting for the company, which meant a multi-camera switch. Shawn Chadwick was the cameraman, feeding the Sony PXW-FS7M2 cameras into a Sony Anystream. MTI also supplied the teleprompter from Telescript DC., and Jace Strickland was the operator. Of course, all MTI staff and crew are fully vaccinated and follow all Covid protocols.

So, thanks again, Steve, and thanks to Otsuka for the great assignment.
