Taking Care of Business When it Comes to Event Production

Work was the theme for this year’s Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce 113th Annual Meeting. HenkinSchultz was again enlisted to help produce this elaborate live event.

Work is not only what drives our local economy and society as a whole, it’s what it takes to pull off live musicians, pre-recorded video, timing, lighting and so much more. Event planning and work on this year’s video production began months ago.

HS and the chamber identified notable business leaders throughout the community and videoed in their respective workplaces: an office, a farm, exam room, bank, etc. Our distinguished community leaders played along, singing to Bachman Turner Overdrive’s “Taking Care of Business.”

Pulling it all off took a crew of 49 and countless hours of prep. We mixed the various pre-recorded video elements to live action, live music, lighting, sound and various speeches. Timing was essential. Event production brings together a very specific set of talents to produce a seamless show.

The video kicked off the show in style and is shown as a recreation of the live event production. The projection screen itself was a whopping 120 feet wide by 16 feet high.
