GE Transportation hired Brown & Co

Ryan shot Videos and Photos for GE Transportation during the 2015 Railway Interchange convention at the Minneapolis Convention Center in October or 2015. 5 videos and edited 2 of them that afternoon. One was a Q&A with Jamie S. Miller SVP
We started with a wide angle to provide a sense of location, then shot close up, and ended with an edited version that included an interview. We also produced a straight-on interview with the new CEO of GE Transportation, it will be used to introduce the Jamie S. Miller internally.
Directing and shooting, I shot PR Photos of the Sales Team at the booth and a group photo of the whole crew while setting up and finding time for video interviews. People weren’t the only things I recorded that day. A walk around the train yard the outdoor part of the convention where I shot PR photos of Jamie and GE’s new Tier 4 Locomotive.

 “I kinda geeked out on trains”

Sitting in the engineers seat and looking out the window of these monster trains imagining that these people have control of thousands of pounds moving at high speeds thats a lot of pressure. Crazy yellow train made to clean up the edge of an old rail line. It’s big wheel opps out and scoops the shoulder of old loamy rail bed into a conveyor belt and dumps it into the next car and then dumps rock on to the shoulder to make a new rail bed that is strong. I have to admit I kinda geeked out on trains.Loram

Famous Dave’s CEO Testimonial

Famous Dave’s CEO Testimonial

Revenue Management Systems contracted Brown & Company to produce a testimonial video featuring Famous Dave’s CEO John Gilbert.
During the filming at Famous Dave’s Headquarters in Minnetonka, John gave us a lot of workable footage. We ended up with several very effective videos. RMS was very pleased with the final product and is using the videos on YouTube as well as their testimonial page.


We produced two videos for NPC Robotics. They needed video for their trade show booth. I really enjoyed working with these guys, they have a level of easy-going professionalism that makes them very approachable.
I also visited the Robotics Alley trade show and visited the NPCs’ both. It’s so nice to see your work in use in a beautiful booth.
As soon as you walk in the robots greet you. I felt like I was in Star Wars for a moment, “These are not the droids you’re looking for”. I am astounded by all the types of robots and uses. They also have grade school teams at all levels building robots to compete in multi stage challenges. I wanted to play with them all and can’t wait till next year.

Video is being used for trade shows in many ways. It’s the best way to pull focus to your both, and to give the casual consumer an approachable way to see what your about with-out having to talk to you. This makes an impact with everyone walking by, and it can lead to questions and inquiries about your product that would have just walked on by. Video should be on your trade show booth list right before catalog and signage.

New Gear for Brown & Co.

New Gear for Brown & Co.

Canon put this camera out last year and I have waited for the right time to buy.

This Camera can shoot up to 80,000 ISO! Can it see low light better than my eyes? Yes! It uses Canon EOS DSL lenses and smells like a babies head. This new gear is great for Brown & Company. With increased depth of field the background won’t pull focus away from you. This will also give more control more information in shadows and highlights. This Means I can shoot an interview indoors expose for indoor light and still see content out the window under bright day sun conditions.
