Analog Devices (ADI) has long been present in Southeast Asia, and maintains an office in Hong Kong.
I had the distinct pleasure to work with Steven Weatherbee of Regis Media to write, remotely direct and edit this video for ADI. I say remotely direct, because neither the time, nor budget allowed either of us to travel to Hong Kong for the shoot.
Instead, Steve retained Cruise Control to get us a crew and line producer, while I wrote a script and shot list for the story. Steve listened to the interview over the phone and, based on the details of the interview, I developed a shot list for b-roll, e-mailing it to the producer as the cameraman packed up from the interview. Tapes of the b-roll and interview were Federal Expressed to us, and I completed the project on our Avid.
Peter Oaklander, the Managing Director for Asia Pacific, certainly projected the future for both the economy and the direction of technology.
