Quest Academy virtual auction
Talk about changing times. We just produced our first virtual gala! From our studio, we produced the first-ever online gala for Quest Academy out of Chicago.
Our studio looked like a Hollywood set. Multiple cameras, lighting, video monitors, soundboard, microphones and one of the walls painted green to produce superimposed “green screen” settings to fit the theme of the night.
Behind the cameras there was Roe. Switching from the pre-recorded videos of auction items to live video behind the turntables, getting everyone moving from the comfort of their living rooms.
SETTING UP THE STUDIO
“We feel that you guys saved our event for us. We had no idea what to expect, we’ve always been about the big event in the ballroom and I honestly believe the funds we raised were because you and the professionalism you brought.”
A special thanks to Raising Paddles and auctioneer extraordinaire Shannon Mays for not only bringing us onto the event with Quest Academy but for professional work as the emcee for the event – making the fundraising exciting, fun and exceeding expectations. Shannon and her partner Erin Williams brought such energy and enthusiasm that the two hour event was seamless and fast-paced!
“It’s really great because my colleagues have been watching hundreds of videos and this is the best one they’ve seen yet.”
The spotlight video produced by our video team headed by Matt brought tears of joy and illustrated the incredible connection of students and teachers even during a time when in-person learning was put on hold and new doors opened through online learning.
“I’ve gotten nothing but positive feedback. For the first time in years, I haven’t gotten any negative feedback!” –Karen Dickerson, Quest Academy
We LOVE our partnership with Quest Acadmeny … and now we’re headed to Chicago to produce their first “Drive-In” graduation!
