Video Project Description
The work-had play-hard mentality is championed in the various corporate offices of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. This sizzle reel captures memories coworkers made together at the Chicago Trading Company’s 20th Anniversary Event. A combination of B-roll/location shots as well as action footage of live music and dancing put to energetic rock music paints a picture of what the event was like.
Capturing raw footage of a heavily involved event is useful for a variety of reasons. It can be referenced for years to come - a resource to be used in planning future events as well as a source of nostalgia for employees to look back on. Creating a sizzle reel from raw footage can be used to share on social media after an event takes place, or when advertising for a similar event in the future.
Vanilla Video captured raw footage throughout the duration of the event and used highlights to create a sizzle reel. Customers are free to choose highlights for the sizzle reel themselves, or Vanilla Video can choose all the clips during the editing process. Making sizzle reels is a simple way to share the memorable moments at an event. Sizzle reels can be used to show off your company’s fun event anywhere online.
Chicago Trading Company’s 20th Anniversary party was a hit – everyone had a blast celebrating one of the company’s biggest milestones. Held accordingly at the techy-meets-industrial venue, Morgan Manufacturing in Fulton Market District, attendees mingled and stayed out late while rocking along to live music. Revel Global Events planned the celebration, including fun details like the event’s hashtag #CTC20TH, personalized décor, and even a white board visualization of CTC’s history by Ink Factory. Vanilla Video captured these details so the founders, employees, and vendors can remember their celebration and milestone for years to come.
Beyond founding a trading company in 1995 and taking it 20 years into the future, the CTC has much to celebrate. From surviving the financial crisis of 2008, to opening an office overseas in London – the CTC is founded on diligence and cooperation. From long hours that led to success, and risks that turned into learning opportunities – the CTC continues to thrive as a leader in the stock exchange today.
