Sirk Productions Goes “Plant Hunting”

3 Jun

Sirk Productions was called in to help the New York Botanical Garden on their latest project known as Plant Hunters.  Sirk Productions provided the New York Botanical Garden the services they were looking for by filming interviews with botanists at the Garden along with students using the new Plant Hunters program.  Additionally, Sirk Productions was able to craft these videos specifically for the launch of the new interactive Plant Hunters website.  Plant Hunters is an online, educational resource that provides a virtual exploration of plants and the habitats they grow in.  John Sikes, President of Sirk Productions Creative Services Division, stated how, “We’re always excited to work with the Garden especially when they are reaching out to educate both adults who enjoy botany and students who are learning about plants in a fun and interesting way.”

“The real face of science can be seen in the interviews with New York Botanical Garden scientists on the Plant Hunters site. These videos, filmed by Sirk Productions, added another fun dimension to the interactive site, which kids and adults are sure to enjoy exploring together.  Sirk Productions also enabled the Garden to capture local students in the Bronx discovering the wonder of the Plant Hunters Web site as well as the diverse plant collection in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.  ” – Jamie Boyer, Ph.D., Director of Children’s Education at The New York Botanical Garden.

Wall Street Training – Online Tutorials

8 Mar

Production has wrapped on the first 147 lessons of Wall Street Systems’ online Education Class.  Shot over three weeks entirely on Green Screen at Sirk Productions, this series is designed to be the financial education resource for students around the world. “It was a pleasure working with Sirk Productions. They were able to accommodate all my video needs and delivery what I needed when I needed it.”

The timing couldn’t have been better for Wall Street Training because of the addition of Sirk’s sound proof Green Screen facility that had just gone up.  “With the way the industry is going in terms of smaller production facilities and the flexibility digital technology offers, we knew that we had to be proactive and offer our clients services that a few years back would have been cost prohibitive” say Sirk Partner Kristian Fraga.” “I’ve been moving to have a space for Green Screen production for a while.” Adds John Sikes, President of Sirk Productions Creative Services Division. “We were finishing up a long term project and the space opened up so we decided to make the move.  It’s been great and I know Wall Street Training appreciated the flexibility and comfort of working out of our office in midtown for 3 weeks.” “ I’m looking forward to our continuing work at Sirk Productions” in the upcoming months.”  For more information about Sirk’s services division and their Green Screen facilities check us out on line at http://www.sirkproductions.com or call us at 212-244-4934.
