In 2016 COTU hoofed it to Hannover, Germany to assist KUKA Robotics at the largest industrial trade fair in the world, Hannover Messe. Spanning 466,100 square meters of indoor space, 58,000 square meters of open-air space, and featuring appearances by President Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the show did not disappoint. Beyond producing effect and graphic rich videos onsite for KUKA’s media channels, we also provided camera coverage and live video mixing for events inside the KUKA booth. The rigors of international travel, equipment shipping, tight deadlines, and an ever-changing production schedule put our crew of shooters and editors to the test. But with a little help from coffee and currywurst, we prevailed, and produced an excellent video for an excellent client.
