The Hope for Haiti Celebrity Telethon last Friday came together with urgency at the suggestion of George Clooney, but the amount of effort that was put forth by all involved resulted in a spectacular event that reached millions of viewers.
It was an honor for The Big Picture to donate our video and audio equipment and time and services to pull together this amazing feat of philanthropic broadcasting, which was shown not only across all major networks, but all over the world.
The effort was well worth it as not only did we have the opportunity to work with some talented industry people, including Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood, but the event itslef was a huge success, raising over $60 million dollars in aid to help those in need in Haiti.
It’s hard to know where to start to help the relief effort in Haiti. News of the devastation has been overwhelming. It is wonderful to see so many different people rise to the occasion and lead their community in raising funds and awareness.
Hope for Haiti is an organization that has been trying to make a difference in Haiti for over 20 years. The level of outreach and support they provide covers clean water, education, medical services, and emergency relief.
We are pleased to offer our video production services tomorrow for the live broadcast of the Hope for Haiti celebrity telethon, organized by George Clooney. This event is bringing together many celebrities and tomorrow we will be contributing our equipment and services for the live interviews with Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood. Contributing with us is Oakland Audio Visual Services, and Neil Tanner, Inc.
As the crisis continues, more celebrity and networks are joining the cause, with the telethon set to broadcast for free across all major networks including: ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and CNN; and also on BET, the CW, HBO, MTV, VH1, and CMT.
We are thrilled to donate our time and services to this event and we hope that the outcome is a huge amount of funds for those that are suffering in this horrific Quake.

2009 was another great year at The Big Picture. We had the opportunity to work on a lot of great projects this year with some of our long time clients and some wonderful new ones. Though we can’t show you everything, here is a short compilation of the projects we worked on last year.
Remember to keep coming back to see some of the new projects we are working on in 2010.
