Steam Plant Centennial (1916-2016) Legacy Video

March 8, 2016 by Mallory

Celebrating the Steam Plant’s Centennial this weekend was amazing, and we were thrilled to finally screen their legacy video that has been in the works since June 2015. It was an honor to work on such an important piece of Spokane history, and to have the opportunity to interview  individuals who worked at the steam plant when it was operational as well as the visionaries who were integral in renovating the iconic building into the distinctive space that it is today. From the incredible peek into the past to the community-minded philosophies that drive what the space will be in the future, this was a production that will remain close to our hearts as proud Spokane residents. The stacks are such a beloved part of the Spokane skyline, and we’re so thankful that they were given a new life and will be maintained for generations to come.

This is what our client had to say:

I want to thank you for the services you provided us here at the Steam Plant Square, you have been very professional and responsive during this process of making our historical movie presentation! I will recommend you to all business associates for the great work and partnership that you have done!

Your work was on time, presented professionally, and communication was clear and thought out which made it very easy to respond in a timely manner. The video clarity was amazing!

We are very pleased for using you a second time and will continue this partnership in the near future!

Thanks again Megan and Rob!

Rogue Heart Media worked with us on the Steam Plant 100 Year celebration video. Rob and Megan are the best! They were flexible with our schedules, very professional and the project came in on time and budget. They took care of every detail. While they were working on the video there was a last minute commercial that we requested. They did not skip a beat and helped finish that project too. I would definitely work with them again and I most certainly recommend them to anyone that has photography or video needs.
