Videotelephony and Carleton University students are working together
Last year we were asked to show students the glitz and glamour of small business (and sometimes not so) in the Entrepreneurship Class at Carleton University taught by the delightful Stephen Davies.
When I walked into the classroom, late (because they built a new building called the Canal Building which I thought was the River Building) I felt like I was walking into a room full of people much younger than me. I had not been out of school very long but very quickly felt old. Other businesses were taking part, Liz Lance...
What we can really stand behind is a project that helps new-comers to Canada. Our launch video for In-Tac Ottawa got us thinking about this.
Our latest project, a launch video for In-Tac Ottawa got us thinking about this. As an entrepreneurial organization made up of first and second generation immigrants, we'd like to dedicate this post to talking about the importance of employment opportunities for foreign born Canadian residents. International talent for jobs in Canada is something we know well from working in multicultural Ottawa.
Every year since 2001, Ottawa has become the home of 240,000...
Recently we came across a question that made us think that we should teach our blog followers and anyone else who may be interested 7, yes exactly 7 things you did not know about webcasting.
I was speaking with a local event organizer about the topic when she stopped me and said- “We’ve thought about hiring someone to do this for us before, but won’t it stop people from actually coming to the event?”
It seems that this is still a common misconception, wherein people tend to think that enabling online hosting will make people lazy, anti-social, and unwilling to come to the actual venue…
We all know how important fitness and exercise are to the human body, but how often do we think of the brain as another part you need to work out?
Only recently has brain fitness taken a spotlight in the media and become a hot topic in neuroscience. So what does this have to do with our video productions company? One of our clients is Nicole Scheidl, CEO of Fit Minds. This organization works with people suffering from forms of dementia such as Alzheimer’s, as well as other diseases affecting the brain.
Nicole sees herself as a cognitive coach or fitness trainer helping...
Sticking Around with the Boom Pole- A snapshot of working from Videotelephony's Marketing Manager
Before I joined the Videotelephony team I didn’t know much about the world of video productions or the people behind them. This was back in the naïve days when I thought closed captioning was an easy task and a 30-second commercial could be shot in 15 minutes. Turns out I had no idea what I was walking in to.
My first lesson was in the art of holding a boom pole (which is basically a microphone on a stick).
While this might look easy, it actually takes someone with the build of the Old Spice...
At Videotelephony we like to think that we’re pretty smooth.
The pun is intended here and you’ll see why. When we partnered up with Nick May who created Remay Vanilla Shower Time we knew we wanted to show how smooth one could get by using it, leg smooth that is. Vanilla Shower Time is an alternative to the traditional shaving cream and rolls on kind of like a deodorant stick.
The stick itself is filled with moisturizers and is pleasantly scented. We were able to try a sample before the shoot and we LOVE it!
Our two actresses for the commercial, who had never met before, Faye Rowland...

We all know that video is a great alternative to reading a white paper, especially if you are just trying to get your offering out there.
This article details the importance of video for your business.
Engaging Customers Takes Video.
Getting to know your customers and engaging them in meaningful social
dialogue is now both a science and an art and a quickly changing art at that.
Meaningful engagement is needed and but how do you go about engaging your
customers with video and social media?
Volunteering Video Services to Camp Quality
This is how is starts…
Two people are about to embark on a journey that will change them forever.
When you arrive at camp you have to get a lice check; nothing feels nicer. I love lice check, and it only gets better after that. Such a simple task…the running of the sticks through your hair, checking for the dreaded eggs. Yes, if they found anything I would be mortified, but thus far I’ve been spared.

Videotelephony Video Shooting for Fit Minds
Last week Videotelephony had the pleasure of shooting with a wonderful woman named Stephanie. We were working on a shoot for Fit Minds which offers cognitive health products to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The story that Stephanie told was a sad and beautiful one about her mother. Stephanie described to us what she went through as a caregiver and what her mother went through as well. As difficult as it was at times to talk about, the importance of understanding Alzheimzer’s and Dementia and what we all can do to prevent as well...
Recently Videotelephony had the pleasure of meeting Chris Maley, a remarkable and intelligent person, from the 20/200 project.
This company is focused on developing mobile applications, (think apps on an iPhone for example) and making accessible to everyone. In addition to working to make websites for companies more accessible to all user.
You might be thinking, how are apps, websites and other online mediums inaccessible at the moment?
If you had a vision impairment, a learning disability or even a hearing loss you would experience the world in a completely different...
