But for Ohio State is the comprehensive campaign spearheaded by the Office of Advancement at The Ohio State University, whose goal is to raise 2.5 billion dollars by 2016.
When the campaign kicked off on October 4, 2012, the amount pledged and collected to date was 1.3 billion dollars.
But first, let us return to June of 2012, when Bartha was given the opportunity to produce the campaign kickoff as well as the additional six (6) city tour.
At that time The Ohio State University wanted a 360 degree image that would transport the audience in attendance to any place on campus as well as the rest of the world through the use of still images and video.
Working as a partner with the University’s planning committee, we created the scripting, videos, images, lighting, and sound effects for an evening event that started at the Oval, the central focus of Ohio State’s campus, beginning with dawn, moving through mid-day for the dinner portion of the evening, and closing with the Oval at night.
The sights, the sounds, and the student entertainment that embody the Oval every day were all incorporated into a resounding program that covered all the various colleges and departments within the University.
We told stories by many students, faculty and alumni through the use of video or live testimonials in the room that stated
Had it not been for The Ohio State University I would not have had the opportunities that changed my life.
The tour began in Columbus, Ohio on October 4, 2012, and traveled over 7,696 miles during its six city tour to Cincinnati, Chicago, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Washington DC and ending in New York on November 4, 2013.
We here at Bartha are proud to have been a part of such a successful and historical venture that we shared with everyone at The Ohio State University.
