Videotaping at Carbon Black Manufacturing Facilities

May 22, 2012

You know those cool black boots you wore in the chillier weather? Or those black jeans that you like because they’re a bit dressier than the blue denims, or the black sweater you dress up with a multicolored scarf? You know the black casing around your phone or the tires on your car or the dashboard inside? They all share one characteristic: Black. And they all get that black in the same way: Through the carbon from oil.

I recently learned about that at the carbon black manufacturing facility of Orion Engineered Carbons.

Okay, so a backdrop of reactors and carbon products isn’t as sexy as a movie set. And travel for corporate video production rarely means world monuments. But it does mean something very valuable: Close encounters with detailed information about how the world functions, constantly expanding our base of knowledge and broadening our life perspectives.

Orion is a global manufacturer of engineered carbons that produce black goods, including vehicle tires, sealings, hoses, anti-vibration systems, conveyers, transmission belts, plastics, printing and inkjet inks, paints and coatings, adhesives and sealants, toners, batteries, and anything black! Their plants are strategically located around the world, with major operations taking place in S. Korea, Germany, Ohio, and Houston. To convey its story, V&V began videotaping for Orion in Belpre, OH, just over the W. Virginia border, followed by a trip to the facility in Orange, TX.

In the coming weeks V&V will be editing the interesting manufacturing shots with numerous product images and motion graphics and animations we craft, designing an internal video that exudes know-how, industrial prowess, and importance in the lives of consumers around the world. Ironically, since the final product will be presented through the Orion intranet, the blacks on the screen will be made of 0s and 1s rather than carbon – one of the few exceptions to the carbon black rule!
