Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 17, 2014
Boni Productions of Washington, D.C. recently wrapped three days of production for National Geographic Education Foundation to help launch its new global initiative—the Geo-Educator Community. Boni Productions provided an outstanding crew led by Director/DP Dennis Boni who served as cinematographer for the promotional video launching the new initiative.
Despite the Educational Foundation’s limited resources, Boni felt privileged to be able to provide the highest production values possible by utilizing his best-in-class Arri Alexa Camera – the same digital masterpiece that captured blockbusters such as Life of Pi, Skyfall, Gravity, etc.
National Geographic, one of the most respected brands in today’s media-driven environment, is known worldwide for exploration and research, cultural preservation, conservation and education. Their obsession with quality is evident in their carefully crafted content, world-class photography and cinematic virtuosity. It is no surprise then that National Geographic producer Alison Michel selected Boni for this challenging project. Dennis Boni is one of the most seasoned cinematographers in the Mid-Atlantic Region. Just last year, he completed the first ever category sweep at the PEER awards dominating the "Director of Photography” category. Boni's credits also include HBO, PBS, Discovery Communications, Millennium Films, and many other global brands.
This is not the first time that National Geographic has reached out to Dennis Boni. His previous work for the mega-brand has included the entire series, MegaCities, the critically acclaimed science series, Known Universe, and creative subject matter in the series, America Paranormal.
In order to successfully complete the recent shoot for National Geographic, Boni Productions supplied a production crew comprised of some of the most talented craftspeople in the region. The video was shot over the course of three days, with two of those set in classrooms in D.C., and an additional day of interiors, exteriors, and car-mount photography.
Now, with a foray into digital education, National Geographic is seeking to expand into the ever-growing field of Ed-Tech, which, like Bio-Tech, combines two commonly disparate industries. In this case, it is education and technology, and Ed-Tech is one of the fastest growing sectors of today's educational landscape. National Geographic describes the Geo-Educator in the following manner, "The Community is designed to give Geo-Educators the opportunity to learn from, and collaborate with, like-minded educators and innovators from different disciplines and educational settings."

Asked what he took away from this particular collaboration, Boni reflected, “Despite the usual constraints of time and resources, It is personally fulfilling to team with professionals as committed as I am to producing the highest quality work imaginable."
