Just as the COVID-19 pandemic got rolling, eImage got an RFP from the County of Alameda to produce a video program. Of course we jumped on it and gave an excellent bid; we lost a number of bookings because of the pandemic and there was no other work on the horizon. To our delight by April 2020 we got the job. The client said we were chosen in part because we seemed sensitive to the unique safety considerations the pandemic demanded. It’s true, whether producing video for a government entity like Alameda County or for a corporate client, it seemed prudent to heed all the warnings and follow the recommendations from scientists and government officials.
Alameda County threw another twist into our video production. They originally wanted a recruitment video but the pandemic temporarily stopped all hiring. So we shifted gears and agreed to produce a video about the County’s sustainability drive, to explain and celebrate their accomplishments of the past ten years.
For this video production Alameda County had a good collection of still photographs and videos that we could tap into.
