Broadstreet created a powerful Opening Experience Video that transported audience members into the lives of the patients they serve through a ballroom sized “Virtual Reality” experience. A series of LED video screens spanning over 150’ featured a video that took attendees through four patient scenarios where their disease greatly impacted their lives. The live action footage was shot on state of the art 8K cameras to ensure high quality output on such a large screen surface. The audience wore audio headsets that further immersed them into the scene. Characters on screen spoke and looked directly at each audience member. The width of the image reached beyond their peripheral vision bringing each viewer into the action. Each scene was left unresolved, much like the real life situations of these patients. Following an uplifting charge to the sales force, the video resolved itself by returning to the patients and showing them with the possibility of better circumstances while being treated with the company’s products. The audience reaction was charged with emotion leaving many with tears. Clients said it was one of the few times they could truly connect to the patient’s plight.
