DHTV Crew Follows Client to Colorado

Last week, DHTV made their way out to Colorado Springs, following Lockton as they gathered for their annual “Global Growth Forum” event.

The trip was filled with tons of shooting and editing, with multiple late nights in prep for the event’s various video production needs. As always, our crew was diligent about having all video footage and graphics looking great and finished promptly.

It was a full week of work, but nothing makes us more content then leaving a production knowing our client’s needs were met and they were happy with the service we had an opportunity to provide.

Enjoy a few stills of our guys working hard!


DHTV Moves Out of Shawnee after 9 Years

It was a long, hot, and somewhat emotional day for the DHTV Digital family today. We moved out of our studio of the last nine years in downtown Shawnee. We're moving to a slightly larger and much more versatile space in Lenexa. We've collected a lot of great memories and a lot of stuff in the past 9 years. Thankfully, I'm blessed with two great families: My staff at DHTV and my wife and boys. I put them all to work today.

My thanks to Kevin Bennett, our landlord since 2009. You're the best my friend.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it...

Cracking the code on a bold new approach - A fresh mission statement by our friends at Lockton.

Lockton Companies wears many hats in the insurance industry, like insurance, risk management, employee benefits solutions, and retirement services. 

As one of the worlds largest privately held insurance brokerage firms, Lockton keeps their name and reputation by continually going above and beyond for clients, focusing on expansion, and in this case, always keeping themselves in check to remain parallel with todays ever changing market. 

Times are-a-changing, and fast. But whatever obstacle comes, Lockton Companies has a plan in-pocket. And that's what keeps them on top.

Here's a look into one example of how they obtain success: Motivating their associates. They may be insurance centric, but that doesn't mean it has to be all numbers and charts. They have skilled communications teams who focus on innovative, creative and energetic videos that match their fast paced culture. After all, if you're able to integrate video production into your company culture, why not have a little fun with it too? Throw a little spice into the sauce, so to speak. Like this film-noire style piece we filmed with them (and quite a blast it was)

If theres one thing to take away from this, it's that the more you reach out to your own people, and the more effort you put into communicating your goals, 9 times out of 10 you'll see more success, which is why Lockton is one of the best in the industry.

A warm praise for the Club

If you're familiar with our usual goings on at DHTV DIgital, then you'll know the Boys and Girls Club of America are an organization that we consider a friend, and one we see frequently, at that.

For those who don't know about the fine people of the Boys and Girls Club, it is an organization that started in 1860 by three women, and extends to today, holding stronger than ever their original cause: to keep young men and women off of the streets, out of trouble, and in an environment where they can be educated, supported, challenged, and most of all to ensure a bright and promising future.

The central focus on this project was nothing short of congratulatory, as a small handful of sponsors joined together to give praise to those who are responsible for what Boys and Girls Club of America is today. Community America, DST, and NASB to name a few, shared their own gratefulness and thanks, as well as Don Wagner (right) representing he and his wife Jean for the Don & Jean Wagner charitable Foundation.

The Boys and Girls Club's own Dave Smith (left) is also being recognized for his continuing impact. Dave has nurtured and guided young lives for the past 25 years. Here's the shocker though: Smith's story with the Boys and Girls Club didn't begin as a leader - he was a club kid himself. Who better to know the very core of this organization than someone who spent his formative years there himself?

The lives affected by the Boys and Girls Club of America, and by extension everybody involved, are truly a blessing to be had, and would not be where they are today without their help and care.

And as for us, we're proud as always to continue to help share their story, as well as be a part of it.
