IREM Awards Night

On November 13th, Creative Resources Group had the honor and the pleasure of providing video production and photography for IREM Boston’s Annual Lifetime Achievement Awards Night, this year held at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston, MA.

Just a few months prior, CRG and IREM worked together for the first on the golf course during IREM’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament at Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy, MA. No, we weren’t playing a friendly game, (though that sounds like fun!) Instead, CRG’s production crew shot the tournament and then edited a video montage right there on location. The completed video introduced the evening’s post-tournament dinner.  (Read the whole story and see the video here:

IREM President, Dave Barrett, along with event attendees, were greatly impressed with the quality of CRG’s video production, especially considering the allotted six-hour turn around time.

For the IREM Annual Awards Dinner, CRG suggested creating another video to introduce the evening, much to Barrett’s delight. When CRG suggested incorporating our aerial footage of the JFK Library, along with our archival JFK footage… Well, those who know his passion for history can just imagine how pleased Barrett was at this.

The completed Awards Night intro video combined this footage with some taken at the Annual Charity Golf Tournament, as well as sponsor company names and logos. CRG received many compliments on the video, even before it premiered at the event. (Admittedly, we just couldn’t resist leaking it to some key people!)

The night of the event came quickly, and Creative Resources Group was ready to roll. Along with event b-roll footage, CRG shot award presentations, IREM video interviews, (hosted once again by Jessica Reihl from ARS Restoration Specialists) and event photos.
