It's been an amazing production journey bringing the magical world of books to life for the live, all-online broadcast of the #NBAwards again this year. This event is a huge undertaking by the National Book Foundation in any year, but pulling off the “Oscars of books” as a hybrid production is an even more technically complex, creatively ambitious, and logistically heavy lift. This show was months in the making, and yet, as it goes in live production, it all came down to getting every last detail right in the final days, hours, and minutes. So much respect and gratitude for our incredibly talented, hardworking crew and our fantastic collaborators at NBF. CONGRATS to the winners, and catch the replay here: https://usefulmedia.net/project/national-book-awards/ 📸 5: @beowulfsheehan #nbawards #teambook #virtualevents #books #livestreamproduction #videoproduction #nycproduction #nonprofitvideo #virtualeventproduction #onlineevent

Amid multiple crises this election year, Enterprise Community Partners' fight for affordable housing has never been more critical.

We produced the narration all remotely and tied together footage we've filmed of Enterprise's work all over the country over the past few years to highlight the many affordable homes they've created and lives they've impacted.

Following diagnosis with stage 4 non-small cell lung cancer, Oswald began first-line treatment with immunotherapy. Today, he is cancer-free. #CIM20
