Each year Riverbed brings its entire sales force together to educate them on new products and inspire them to surpass their quotas for the upcoming year. The conference kicks off with an opening video that sets the theme for the conference to come. In collaboration with Riverbed’s head of sales, I devised the idea of leveraging a James Bond theme, that extended from the opening video, to conference programs, learning tracks, digital signage and more.
The video itself was a choreographed, live action shoot at Riverbed’s headquarters in San Francisco. We used a green screen backdrop to overlay kung fu masters from a local martial arts program into Bond-esque backdrops. In total, my contributions included developing the theme, writing the script, storyboarding it out, directing the shoot and overseeing the entire editing process.
