Since October of 2011, the cut company has been hard at work to producing 17 videos as part of a major medical pilot project for The Medical University of South Carolina. This job has been tremendous in every way, and we are super proud of the outcome. These short films are being tested to see if they can in fact be used to make life easier on research patients.
Here is an abridged breakdown of the schedule, and what we have had to accomplish.
1. RESEARCH and WRITE 17 medical scripts. We have gotten quite good at this, having done this for several companies and hospitals now.
2. NARRATE / Record the scripts. There are so many talented voice over artists in the area now. For these films we chose the sweet, charming voice of Pam Hays, who we have worked with many times over the past few years.
3. SHOOT. The bulk of these have been shot by a 5Dmii, with some backups by a 7D & T2i. Most of them are medical procedures, shot directly in a hospital room. All of the clinicians were real. The patients were actors.
4. EDIT. All of our post is Final Cut 7 – however we are making our way to Premiere Pro soon.
6. FOCUS GROUPS.
I am making less of the process, however this pilot overall still being finalized into a medical paper, so I am breezing over much of it. I can say that I love working with competent, professional teams. The end results show.
