OP had the pleasure again, for the fifth consecutive year to provide support to a wonderful organization, the Catholic Medical Association. Now although we typically focus on video production in Atlanta and not a ton of event production, we flew out west to warm and sunny Phoenix, Arizona for a three-day conference to provide audio recording of all of the presentations and burn them onto CDs.

Before I fully dive into the work that we did for the CMA, I want to take a moment to rant about the stunning beauty of Phoenix. We’ve been out there twice before – Super Bowl XLII and a corporate shoot in Glendale. Each trip was a blurry haze of ridiculousness, and we were in and out at full speed.

There really wasn’t any time to go exploring. This time, we had planned a little bit of time to actually enjoy the sights and sounds. My thoughts of Arizona before this trip was that it was a desert wasteland….boy was I wrong! From the get-go, I was glued to the window like an awestruck little boy soaking up everything. Who knew that a giant cactus could be so amazing! It’s a different, gorgeous world out there.

So, when it came to the work, we were very relaxed being surrounded by all of the natural beauty. Good thing, too; because our job there was a little ambitious. Like I mentioned above, we recorded the conference talks/presentations but afterwards we burned them onto CDs…with a one-hour turn around time!

This process enables the conference talks to be purchased right then and there. Over the course of the three-day conference we burned over 1,400 CDs along with multiple DVD’s & MP3 Players!

At times things can get hectic but thanks to an experienced team, we were able to tackle the job pretty flawlessly. We really enjoyed being able to listen to all the conferences while we were busy working. This year’s theme was all about: The Formation of Physicians: Vision and Virtues for a New Era in Medicine. Even though we aren’t physicians and certainly not medical professionals we were able to comprehend some of the messages that were being transmitted. It gave us a lot of insight to the future of healthcare and the individuals who were committed to providing quality care.

Stay tuned for a video client testimony from the Catholic Medical Association about the work that OP has been providing them with – to be released soon!

Our next post will give you a sneak peak into the little detour we took on the way home – stopping in Sedona, AZ, the Grand Canyon and even Destin, FL.
