- Fall 2008
has been a busy year for Dancing Sun Multimedia.
We have filmed the final stages of the creation and installation of the
sculpture "Harvest." Our goal is to have the documentary ready
for distribution by May or June of 2009. Editing will begin in December
and we'll be creating new music for the production. It has been such a
joy working with sculptor Ray "Jake" Jacobson. What an inspiration
We have just finished a new website for the Northfield
Retirement Community and they seem to be very pleased with
the result. The site has many videos of on campus life and also a connection
to their new internal TV network. Kyle Nordine, CEO, is a visionary in
an industry that is too often conservative and lacking in imagination.
He has been pushing the boundaries of communication and we are very pleased
to have the opportunity to work with him.
Our most recent website just went online November 21, 2008. It was commissioned
by Penny Solber, CEO of Spring Valley Senior
Living in Spring Valley, Minnesota. The site needed a complete
makeover and we were happy to comply. Penny liked the logo we created
for the site so much that she is now incorporating it into all their communication
pieces. Thank you Penny!
Another important client is Professional Design
Group. This creative group of engineers and architects has
commissioned numerous posters over the past few years. Recently we completed
a brochure that focused on the Green Design revolution. PDG is at the
cutting edge of LEED design and needed a piece that would be both promotional
and educational. Check out our Graphic Design

are looking forward to working with the Maltby
Nature Preserve on a promotional video for their organization.
This will likely commence early in 2009.
Studio Equipment: As we make the transition to High Definition
video, Dancing Sun has purchased a new Apple Macintosh workstation. We
have also invested in Final Cut Pro Studio Suite to give us the quality
and horsepower we will need to work in this exciting new video format.
Although none of our current clients has asked for high-def production,
we realize that it is only a matter of time before this will be routine.
Our next decision is what kind of camera to invest in. There are so many
on the market that it will take some time to make this important move.
In the meantime, we will likely rent cameras as the need arises. So whether
you want standard of high definition, we stand ready to meet your technical
and aesthetic requirements.
