Jared Henjum, a video production specialist assistant with HG Litigation Services in Dallas, Texas, is excited to attend NCRA’s 2014 Legal Video Conference, Las Vegas, Oct. 17-19. Henjum, who has passed the written CLVS test, will not only be taking the production skills test on-site but will also be assisting Joe Cerda, CLVS, who will be co-teaching a new session at the event that will outline what multi-input depositions are and how they have evolved over the years. Steve Crandall, J.D., CLVS, from Seattle, Wash., will also teach the course.
“I’ll be in attendance for all three days of the conference and am very excited to be a part of it all. I represent HG Litigation Services, and I work under Joe Cerda of HG and Trial Resource. We will both be there with deposition and trial equipment for Joe’s sessions,” said Henjum.
“NCRA is an outstanding organization and they rally the ‘niche’ professions together. I attended TechCon 2014 and had a blast, so I know the Legal Video Conference in Vegas will be yet another great opportunity to network with some of the industry’s finest,” he added.
For second-time attendee Craig E. Davis, CLVS, owner of Simeon T Group LLC., in Sparks, Nev., the event provides a valuable venue for expanding his education and contacts with other professionals.
“I’m attending this conference to update my knowledge of the industry and do a little networking to see what others are doing,” he said. “Not attending this conference would be a mistake for anyone doing legal videography. The price is very low for the knowledge being shared,” Davis said.
Attendees at this year’s Legal Video Conference can expect an array of sessions on the schedule that will highlight and demonstrate the latest in equipment trends and production techniques. NCRA’s Legal Video Conference serves as the place to be for professionals who are seeking the nationally recognized professional certification of Certified Legal Videographer, as well as seasoned experts who are seeking continuing education units or just the opportunity to stay abreast of what’s new in the industry.
This year’s event also welcomes two new faculty members to the program. They are Don Cely, CLVS, from Greenville, S.C., a videographer affiliated with Huntridge Legal Video Services, and Mike Bailey, RPR, CLVS, from Tulsa, Okla., owner of Bailey Reporting & Video, Inc.
“My video company needed to grow more into the video business. I have done weddings, funerals, training videos, concerts, and seminars,” said Reynaldo Abesamis, Jr., a videographer from Hayward, Calif., who is attending for the first time. “Attending the conference will help me understand and gain in-depth knowledge operating and managing my video business. Having the CLVS certification will be an additional benefit to my career.”
