Welcome to Tellwell’s weekly Plog (photo-blog)!

Another week of work, another week of fun! The team was busy hosting & helping with events, attending galas, even making music videos? Let’s dive into what we were up to this week!

Burger Royale Music Video

This week, our film team had the opportunity to create a music video for Burger Royale! This event brings local Fargo restaurants head to head in a burger competition, where one will reign supreme. It’s not every day our team gets to shoot a music video (much less inside a wrestling ring in the heart of downtown Fargo). What a fun and unique project to be a part of! We had our eyes and ears on visuals and sound, and we can’t wait for you to have your eyes and ears on the video in the future!

Full-day livestream extravaganza

On Wednesday, Senior Film Producer Duncan and Cinematographer Jordan spent all day at The Sanctuary here in Fargo helping run an Employee Law Seminar for Vogel Law Firm. These two monitored video and made sure everything ran smoothly. Overall, it was a successful event!

He is wearing headphones and focused on a laptop screen displaying multiple video feeds of the event. In front of him are various pieces of audio and video control gear. The background features a group of people seated at tables in a venue that combines modern elements with traditional architectural features, such as wooden beams and a stained glass window. The screen behind the audience displays "Employment Law Seminar 2020," indicating the nature of the event.

Audio Training Underway!

Here at Tellwell, we encourage continued learning and development and this week, we did some learning from our very own Lead Editor Matt! On Tuesday, Matt spent a few hours with the rest of the film team learning how to standardize audio across our films, because consistency is key!

When science fiction and art combine, you get a Gala!

We had a few of our own attend the Plains Art Museum’s Spring Gala: Sci-Fi Artistry. As a sponsor of the event, being able to have first-hand experiences attending these events is exciting. Lead Project Manager Lucas (with partner Christine), Content Specialist KJ (with fiancé Tyler), and Chief of Staff Annie (with husband Steve) spent their time in an epic night of sci-fi adventure and exploration!

On your marks, get set, party!

We had some Formula fun here in the office on Sunday with a Formula 1 Miami Watch Party! With F1 bingo and themed snacks, our space was transformed into a tropical motor sports destination. With a mix of jerseys, tropical shirts and our fair share of leis, everyone was dedicated to dressing the part!

Stop, drop, and stroll

Nothing quite like a fire drill to get your heart pumping! Two positives to come out of it: There was no fire (hooray!), and we got some time outside in the middle of the day. Thankfully, the rain started coming down about two minutes after we came back inside *phew*!

That does it for this week! Keep an eye out for the next plog, coming May 17th!

The cap is labeled "Trojans" in cursive script, and her jersey is purple with white and black accents and the name "TELLWELL" across the chest. Her expression and posture suggest confidence and happiness.
