TITLE: Corporate Capabilities
CLIENT: Northrop Grumman Corporation
PURPOSE: Marketing / Exhibit / Display

Produced as the signature marketing presentation for the Paris Air Show, this video was shown in the foyer of Northrop Grumman’s corporate chalet, an environment that was challenging due to a multitude of background conversations and distractions. With that in mind, compelling high-definition visuals coupled with an engaging original music score was the way to go. In order to serve an international audience, simple on-screen titles, translated into the most commonly spoken languages, were used in place of a traditional narration. The program was produced in high definition and was shown on a 16-screen plasma array with surround sound audio.
