Often time when we film I forget to take a behind-the-scenes picture. So for yesterday's shoot, everyone was fine getting back in front of the camera for a quick snap, except for Z. Quick Tip for working with child actors, always have Goldfish on hand....or a dollar!

Thank You & Happy New Year!

Before 2020 comes to a close we wanted to say thank you. Yes, 2020 was a year we won’t forget, it had an unusual amount of challenges and hardships.
Though we can say with confidence, we wouldn’t be here without your support. Thank you for making 2020 better! Stay safe and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas

The tenth and final day of Christmas is finally here!
Today is all about wishing you a Merry Christmas and thanking all who helped this business grow, our clients. No matter if it was a one time shoot or we’ve worked together through the years. You are the reason we are here today, after five amazing years and many more to come. You made us who we are and challenged us in healthy and fun ways, that made us grow. If you see this post and worked with us in the past please comment and let us know!

On the ninth day of Christmas, we want to thank those who help make our videos that much more impactful, the actors.
At Calvisions we want to thank our family and friends, at the beginning, who volunteered as tributes to become actors for our first projects. To our pleasant surprise, we discovered a lot of hidden talent, and people we continue to use to this day.
A great part of this business is being introduced to talented actors who grow with you and work on multiple projects such as Hayley finch, who has since moved to California and will be missed. There have been other actors/actresses, we have only spent a day of shooting with them and they have been beyond professional and added to the quality of our videos.
Yes, we edit, film, and sometimes act in our own media. We love doing what we do and we love doing it exceptionally well, but again we wouldn’t be where we are today without the talent we’ve encountered in the past. For that, we thank each and every one of you, who acted in any of our videos. Today is for you.

Closeforchiro

The eighth day of Christmas is upon us and today we talk about Close for Chiro.
Whenever we mention Closeforchiro, people tend to ask “are you guys producing clothes for Cairo, Egypt?” The answer is no, but this ongoing misunderstanding has led to one of our favorite running jokes.
Close for Chiro is an educational tool that teaches chiropractors to learn how to effectively grow their practices at a steady rate. We started working with Dr. Dan, the founder of Close for Chiro, over a year and a half ago and it has been quite a fun journey.
We started by working with his concepts for ads, editing his Masterclass 2.0 course, and creating our own concepts to assist in advertising for his company.
Keep your eyes open starting now and into 2021 to see some fantastic content that Dr. Dan developed with us. And if you’re a chiropractor looking for extra business as Dr. Dan would say, “You’re the F*&$ing Best! Get Masterclass 2.0 TODAY!”

The seventh day of Christmas is here and it’s time to talk about Terraboost!
Terraboost prides itself on connecting businesses with potential customers through sponsored wellness. Our first project with them was a tryout video where we filmed at Jewel Osco in Plainfield, IL.
Terraboost enjoyed both the final product and working with our team at Calvisions. The rapport we built with them was what led them to revisit our services a few years later.
We were excited to be invited back and filmed a set of training videos for their new staff, profile videos for their current team, and product videos filmed at their Illinois headquarters.
Terraboost offers sanitizing stations at the entrances of many grocery stores, by doing this they offer a fantastic way for your business to be viewed by the community and keep your hands clean.

Calvisions Prototype Fitness

On the sixth day of Christmas, it’s all about Prototype Fitness. We first got into contact with Joe Albin of Prototype fitness when our Co-Owner, Cory, was getting his emissions test. After reaching out, Albin decided he wanted to do a more professional video.
We worked out a two-day shoot, filming testimonials and profile videos with both his trainers and clients. Albin was pleased with the content and kept coming back to film more and even used our services for their new gym in Aurora, IL.
They have been a pleasure to work with and make it fun!
Prototype now offers online personal training for those that aren’t ready to physically enter a gym.
And we have to say from our own personal experience, they are fantastic trainers, because both the owners of Calvisions personally train with them.

On the fifth day of Christmas we talk about Peter Honingmann and Best Defense Concepts!
We met Peter when he made a post looking for a video production company to tape his seminar. Calvisions responded citing we had extensive experience with martial arts as our co-founder Alan had worked with Grandmaster John McSweeney for years.
It was then to our pleasant surprise when Honingmann revealed he was one of John’s youngest students.
Having kept all the photos Alan had, we discovered Honingmann in the background of several of the pictures.
Honningman began his study of martial arts in Kenpo Karate under John McSweeney in 1984. He is a student of other systems such as Krav Maga, which he has successfully synthesized into his own system. In addition to his martial arts skills and teachings, he is an attorney as well, adding a special insight into the practice and use of self-defense techniques.
Since our initial happenstance meeting we have been working with Honingmann and producing content for his YouTube channels along with other projects.
Do yourself a favor and take a look at Best Defense Concepts YouTube channel and check out his website, linked below.
Here at Calvisions we enjoy working with Peter Honingmann and are reminded how small the world really is.

The fourth day of Christmas is here!
Today we discuss The C.H. Hanson Company of Naperville, IL. The company was formed in 1866 by an immigrant from Denmark, by the name of Christian Henry Hanson, and remains a successful commercial and industrial equipment supplier.
C.H. Hanson is now operated by the family’s fifth generation. When we met with them it turned out, our co-founder of Calvisions, Alan, had worked with some of their competitors in the past, by producing numerous marketing videotapes. To both us and them, it showed we had knowledge, experience, and the ability to do the job they wanted and to do it correctly.
From 2015 to now, we have produced numerous marketing tapes for C.H. Hanson and are excited to see what the future holds for us and the continuation of our work relationship.

On the third day of Christmas, we want to celebrate working with our "old" neighbors Northstar Integrated Health & Physical Medicine Center. Back when we first started Calvisions we were located in Lisle, IL. at Lincolnway Center.
After a plethora of hello’s with Dr. Paul and his staff, we eventually began working on projects together. Starting from fixing (co-owner of Calvisions) Alan’s lower back to filming a company video highlighting all of the treatments Northstar offers. We included testimonials from their many happy and relaxed patients.
Even after our move to Addison, IL. we are always excited to go back and work with our old neighbors at Northstar.

On the second day of our ten days of Christmas, we wanted to talk about the Chicago Safety Council. We have been working with the C.S.C. for the last couple of years starting in 2019 and it has been nothing short of interesting, informative, and enjoyable. From filming on construction zones to seeing their courses first-hand and understanding the skill that goes behind everyone involved in the C.S.C.
We initially taped the 2019 Construction Expo and Safety Conference at Drury Lane in Oak Brook. Over the next year, we captured footage of construction sites across the Chicagoland area to use for a new promotional video.
It’s educational and exciting to work within the world of safety.

Calvisions present to you 10 days of Christmas!
Starting with the inspirational Dr. Alok Trivedi. We had the honor of meeting him and his team in March of 2020 when we shot some of his Get RYL event, to produce a promo video for his upcoming Denver seminar.
Then with the restrictions of travel and group gatherings, Dr. T decided to take the event into the virtual realm. We were able to use his office in Hoffman Estates to set up the seminar, working with his team to make it happen.
Now with eight months passed since the first seminar he has moved to a new facility in Crystal Lake, which has been fantastic to work in. His business quickly grew within the eight months of beginning our work relationship with him and the business continues to grow at a rapid pace. The change in production value increases with every event as well. During this time we have been blessed to work with Dr. T, Amanda, Dez, Ashley, and the rest of his team. We are excitedly looking forward to the growth that 2021 will bring.
