Behind the Scenes of the Prep for Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks


It’s the largest fireworks show in the United States and it takes a team of more than 50 pyro-technicians to make it happen. This year’s Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks features 70,000 shells loaded on to four barges and the Brooklyn Bridge. This short video features video of fireworks testing in the desert, loading and preparations on the barges and heart stopping images of the fireworks professionals on the Brooklyn Bridge.

 

Once again, D S Simon Media celebrates our birthday on July 4th (33 years!). Slightly more importantly, the country celebrates its 243rd. We are honored to work with Macy’s, going behind the scenes to capture video of their preparation for the amazing spectacle of the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks. Happy July 4th everyone.

Behind the Scenes: Live Reveal of Great American Rail-Trail


D S Simon Media recently helped Rails-to-Trails Conservancy celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad using new technology to broadcast simultaneous events in multiple locations to create a live social media video feed.

 

Rails-to-Trails, an organization that develops easily accessible multipurpose public paths created from former railroad corridors, came with a challenge to use live video on social media to celebrate the reveal of the Great American Rail-Trail’s preferred route as part of the anniversary celebration. The event was broadcast live from Washington, DC, Columbus, Ohio, Three Forks, MT and near Mt. Rainer in Washington State.

 

With new wireless technology, D S Simon Media was able to take in the signals from each location where the control room team created a compelling online experience for their audience. It was part press conference, part public event, with key moments captured from each of the four cities to produce a historic video program where Rails-to-Trails could engage directly with all of their key constituents via the power of social media.
