McGraw-Hill Spanish Videos - Quito, Ecuador

After many long months of this pandemic, we are nowhere near close to free travel around the globe.

Hence my small effort to alleviate the travel bug many of us are feeling – and quite intensely – by posting videos from our epic trip in 2018 through Latin America and Spain.

What some of us would do to hop on a plane and head somewhere fun, right? Just about anything, if it wouldn't mean risking our lives!

One of my top choices would be Quito, Ecuador, which as I've said many times before, was my favorite city in all of the shooting we did for McGraw-Hill across those 100 days.

And this video is quite pertinent, as it talks about what travel does to you, how it transforms you, and leaves you forever changed.

See the full video here: https://www.zenergyfilms.com/portfolio-mcgraw-hill-spanish-videos-cali-colombia/

And please post in the comments where you'd love to travel if you could!

Closing off streets on Sunday to boost health and well-being

Since most of us can't travel at the moment, I continue with posts from our 2018 docuseries, where we filmed all over the Spanish-speaking world for McGraw-Hill.

Let's do a little "virtual traveling" to Santiago, Chile, shall we?

What's interesting to me in this video is their concept of closing off streets on Sundays and allowing folks to run, cycle, rollerblade, and do all manner of exercising. It's a great idea that's apparently been done in other cities too.

I wonder how much this sort of thing will become part of our reality, in a post-pandemic future. Will COVID-19 teach us the importance of coming out more often into the open, reconnecting with nature, and caring more about our fitness and well-being?

I can see this being a positive outcome of this current virus situation. Granted we might have to observe social distancing rules and other safety practices for some time, but this could a great way to combat (and become a key part of) the "new normal."

Thoughts?

Fantasizing about travel

Let's fantasize for a bit, shall we?

If you were to travel anywhere, right now, this very minute... where would you go?

Pack your bags and just take off, anywhere you want?

At Zenergy, we love to travel. Send us anywhere to shoot, and we're there, in a heartbeat.

Experiencing other cultures, their people, food, the sights and sounds... there's just nothing like it.

Boy do we miss it. And I'm sure we're not alone.

So how about we do a little virtual traveling instead? Yeah, not the same, but at least we can dream about it.

In this video, we take you to Marindia, Uruguay, where we filmed documentary-style content for McGraw-Hill, to teach Spanish to beginner-level college students.

Enjoy. :)

Telling real and authentic stories from the Spanish-speaking world

Telling real and authentic stories from the Spanish-speaking world. This is another example from Moroleón, Mexico.

Ready to infuse your marketing materials with your own true story? We believe that makes all the difference in engaging your audience and motivating them to gravitate towards you.

(Zenergy Films performed all pre-production, directing and shooting all interviews, filming all b-roll, researching musical tracks, and providing all post services.)

Promotional Video for eChemion

A sneak preview at a marketing video we shot for eChemion Inc., telling their unique story through a “Breaking Bad” approach to the shoot.

Check out eChemion: https://www.echemion.com. Their first offering — eC17 — is a high performance bipolar plate adopted as a drop-in replacement for the incumbent by redox flow battery customers.

Zenergy Films handled all pre-production, shooting (2 camera operators, drone, timelapse), and all post/editing work.

Another quick snippet from one of the many tutorial animations we have produced for Lexia Learning (a Rosetta Stone company).

Have you been contemplating producing some engaging, educational tutorials for your company? If so, we should talk!

On this piece, we provided photo research services, prepared materials supplied by the client, and oversaw the recording of the professional voiceover talent. Everything was then animated in Adobe After Effects.

The next stop in our journey through Latin America after Tulum was Moroleón, Mexico.

The presenters there helped beginner Spanish students learn about daily chores.

Have you been thinking about taking a documentary approach to your video to give it more life and realism, thus engaging your audience in a more meaningful way? Perhaps we should talk and explore.

Teaser from Recent Digital Trends Animation

A teaser from a latest project for our new tech client Digital Trends.

This one was a blast to animate! With all original art (that we produced), as well as taking a different and catchier approach to the animation.

Ready for your next piece that gets your audience engaged and taking action? Let's discuss and see if we're a good fit.

Zenergy Films oversaw all art creation, animation, voiceover, and music.

Here's another sample from our travels through the Spanish-speaking world, and also from Tulum, Mexico.

We all got to sample the food shown, and it was absolutely delicious. :)

Spending a little time “paseando” through the streets of Madrid. This was the last city outside the US that we visited while filming for McGraw-Hill last year. Our presenters there spoke about family life as they indirectly taught Spanish to beginner college students.

Nothing beats filming documentary content in such a vibrant city as this!

Sacando algunas fotos por las calles de Madrid, la última ciudad fuera de los EEUU donde filmamos para McGraw-Hill el año pasado. Nuestros presentadores hablaron sobre sus familias, indirectamente enseñando el español a estudiantes principiantes universitarios.

Josh doing a little editing on the road (). In this case, last year in Granada, Spain.

When the workload is heavy, you should do your best to work somewhere beautiful and inspiring. Somewhere where you can step outside and have free tapas with drinks just yards away. 😜

As part of our filming in Costa Rica last year, we had to climb up a 100-foot tree to film our presenters collecting samples.

Scary to say the least, but without getting up there, we could not secure the footage we needed to make the story successful. So up we went.

An example of how far we’ll go for our clients!

Cali was the perfect city to film content related to the Arts (for McGraw-Hill’s Spanish textbook). And man, what incredible coffee!

Filming in Quito, Ecuador last year for McGraw-Hill’s Spanish book.

That’s us way down there capturing footage of our talent in Santiago, Chile. Mei Li and Lorena were fantastic to work with, as was the rest of the team. A great time not justing filming their lives as relates to health and relieving stress (the chapter’s topic in McGraw-Hill’s Beginner Spanish book) but also hanging out and enjoying meals together.

Many fond memories!

During our travels through Latin America last year, my son and I took a couple of hours from our busy work schedule and ventured off into the streets of Santiago, Chile to take some photos.

I’m always taken by the contrast between the beauty of nature and the harshness of city life. It amazes me that a beautiful tree can survive in the concrete jungle.
