Tuna: Delicacy of the Seas

Jul 10, 2016   //   by RandyQ   //   Sales and Marketing, Training  //  No Comments

In 2013, one of our clients was making a push to market tuna in China and open up a new market for their fresh tuna products. The opportunity was big, but equally large was the problem that tuna was never a part of the Chinese diet. They asked us to produce this video as some sort of orientation to tell Chinese people all about Tuna, and even features a German chef in the middle giving a short lesson on a tasty but easy-to-prepare tuna meal!

Like many of Q2’s video projects, this video was produced in English and Chinese, with Chinese being the main language in BOTH voiceover and graphics.

This video also shows original footage shot in 5 countries – American Samoa, China, Marshall Islands, Philippines, and Pohnpei. These footage were shot over a period of many years, and if this video were to be done today, even the archival Japanese photos used in the video will be original footage.

15th Anniversary Video for Long Time Client!

Jul 8, 2016   //   by RandyQ   //   Blog  //  No Comments

Last night, a client that we had been working with for the longest time asked us to produce a video for their 15th Anniversary next year. I suddenly realized that they had been my client for over 15 years – and I saw them grow from a small operation in Palau into one of the largest seafood suppliers in the world!

I did this video for them back in 2013 when they were trying to enter the China market. This video dealt with the “basics” of tuna culture since China was not a tuna market back then, and not many Chinese knew about tuna, let alone developed a taste for it.  The original version of this video was in Chinese language – the version featured here being the English version!

Advance congratulations to Shenzhen Lian Cheng on their 15th Anniversary, and big thanks to the Luenthai Fishing Venture, my most loyal client!

Rewind: Partners for Resilience – Overview video (Indonesian)

Jul 6, 2016   //   by RandyQ   //   Advocacy, Blog, Corporate AVP  //  No Comments

Not too long ago, our team produced a series of videos for the Partners for Resilience – a Norway-based organization made up of 5 major NGOs. This video was the first of the series, and had an Indonesian version with an excellent voiceover c/o old friend Setiawan, who not only facilitated the recording but also did some last minute checking of the script to make sure that the language was right. This was quite interesting to us, because we had always thought (quite wrongly) that Indonesian was a very simple language, but it is apparently a rich language with many nuances!

This video is typical of the translations done by Q2 – not just a voiceover, but script and graphics as well.
