2014 marks the first time that eThree Media partnered with the Ocean Exchange, a non-profit organization founded in 2010 and dedicated to advocating for innovators through building connections with organizations. Their annual event held in Savannah culminates with the awarding of two $100,000 prizes for the most compelling solutions aimed at solving some of the world's biggest ecological challenges.
eThree Media produced the video of the event itself, utilizing multiple cameras and feeds from the video and slide presentations over three days at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. Switched live using our collection of portable studio equipment, eThree Media is proud to deliver high quality finished HD video assets ready for publication in whichever venues deemed appropriate by the Ocean Exchange immediately following the event.
Blue Voyage Productions served as our technology liaison with the Ocean Exchange, taking our nearly finished assets, and adding some sponsorship information to each video prior to posting online.
Director, Nate Nauert of HD Savannah, asked eThree Media to help with color correction and grading for his series of TV Spots for AXE Deodorant. AXE rewarded our combined effort with a public social media campaign that began rolling out today.

The entries were awarded in three separate categories:
Lyn Avenue, Everyday Guardian Angel

For the 8th consecutive year, eThree Media is proud to have been selected as the sole vendor for South University commencement activities in Savannah, Georgia. Over two days, four separate crews handled independent video projects that ran concurrently at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center, including the main commencement ceremony itself, which is held in the full Exhibit Hall.
The Commencement ceremony required four (4) camera positions, switched live to six (6) large screens for over 7,500 people in attendance. The show included real-time keyed graphics for identifying speakers at the podium, along with full screen graphics that were both static and moving. Additionally, a sign language interpreter was boxed in a PIP window and brought in and out during spoken word sections of the program. 2014 also marks the first year that the switched live show was streamed to the Internet, where hundreds of additional viewers watched from all corners of the country.
"Our infrastructure and working knowledge makes us uniquely prepared in the southeast Georgia region to handle complex projects with so many moving parts," said Eric Darling of eThree Media. "Our crews have done this many times now, and we understand how to produce a high quality video product for a live setting with many eyes watching."

Lyn Avenue is currently raising funds to record their first full length album this winter, and the release of this new music video is timed to coincide with their effort at raising awareness of this campaign.

eThree Media donated the use of our Sony FS-700 and lens kit on this project for The Ocean Exchange. From the web site: "By connecting innovators and organizations, The Ocean Exchange empowers the successful application of solutions for the greater good. We are advocates for innovators. We are advocates for collaboration across industry and geography, while protecting the intellectual property of the innovator."
In this case, the greater good called for the utter destruction of various keyboards, shot at high frame rates to enhance the violent impacts exacted by the likes of a chainsaw, axe, shotgun and .50 caliber Desert Eagle handgun. Needless to say, tt was not a good location at which to be a keyboard that day. The project is "aimed" at promotion of a new style of keyboard that works across many devices and platforms.
Eric Darling, owner of eThree Media, operated the camera for DPs Tate McCurdy and Terra Gonzalez. Editing was handled by Zach Lyons and Jane Gray.
eThree Media launched a new streamlined web site today, with updated graphics and easier methods to sort and access content. The new site includes our refreshed film reel featured prominently on the home page, with instantly sortable web and video samples on the work page.
