Videos That We’re Proud Of

Originally, this blog had only been about highlighting two videos from the United States Geological Survey (USGS). However, that was actually a bit out of date. Actually, the truth is that over the years, USGS has released several videos detailing projects that Xentity actually had a hand in. Between that and the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) video referenced among our projects, we want to take this opportunity to actually repurpose this video into our own, personal video catalog. Right now, it’s mainly USGS-related videos and one VA video, but as Xentity continues its work, we’re confident that more will arrive. The following videos have highlighted premier geospatial and mapping products, and various services that Xentity has supported in some form or another.

What We Have Done For the USGS

Xentity has focused on supporting the USGS in communicating change, business transformation results, and roadmaps via story form. Also, we have focused on new mediums tied with traditional mediums as a way to help better reach key stakeholders. These stakeholders include citizens, legislators, business, government users, and partners. Furthermore, these simple stories can show and explain the value of complex programs, products, services, solutions, and systems that powerpoints, whitepapers, or multiple conferences cannot achieve. Also, these mediums have helped convey messages, even during times of intense pressure to reduce travel.

This technique has leveraged Xentity’s investment since 2006 in the co-brand Flip Flop Production service. This service has an end-to-end video production lifecycle approach, quality, highly experienced staff and partners, and full studio capabilities. Xentity has stuck with this investment due to a strong belief that architecture change or transformation efforts can succeed in implementing, but fail in conveying its message. Xentity is proud to support clients, such as the USGS, in creating these key messages in support of conveying the product and service value of their program.

What We Have Done For the VA

Xentity worked with VA to convert the script to screenplay, design the video series, conduct all pre-production planning and coordination. Also, Xentity Film Crew filmed on-site in high-quality HD in multiple Alaskan cities and included far-off outposts accessible by water planes only. Furthermore, Xentity rapidly completed the post-production, coordinated multiple iterations, and generated the required online and DVD final production.
