Jeremy, Old Post Office | July 28, 2020
The production of YouTube videos for the Old Post Office Makerspace came from a collaborative recognition that engaging multimedia can be used to highlight any space or workplace. Since the Makerspace staff have backgrounds in different aspects of video production, we thought this introductory video would be a fun and interactive way to show off our beautiful building while putting our skills to use. Makerspace staff scripted and storyboarded the video, over a series of weeks during quarantine. After a one-day drone shoot on location at the OPO, as well as a few days of editing and adjustments, our video was complete!
The main purpose of the virtual tour video was to spread the word about the cutting-edge services available at the Old Post Office, as well as to reach a global audience, who may not be able to see the building in person otherwise. This virtual tour video can be offered at school assemblies, long-term care homes, or anywhere an internet connection is available.
We are planning production on different tutorial videos as instructional tools for the machines in the Makerspace, so keep an eye out for more videos on the Idea Exchange YouTube page in the near future!
