The landscape of work spaces is changing vastly and rapidly, and much of that has to do with what is known as remote work. Recently, The Wichita Biz Journal reported an extremely high number of remote workers here in town due to the cheap cost of living, stating that between 2011 and 2016, there was a 30% increase in remote workers in Wichita. (https://www.bizjournals.com/wichita/news/2018/04/20/cover-story-live-here-work-anywhere.html). While remote work may be convenient because you get to make your own schedule, it can become tiring to always work from home.
Recently in Wichita, there’s been a lot of excitement around a new workplace venture known as The Hive, which is a co-working space started by Andrea Stang in 2018. The idea behind this space is an open office that supports both the business and the employee by offering inspiration through connecting with others in a relaxed and supportive environment. The Hive also offers personal services and learning opportunities in a centralized location. While these types of spaces are often good for freelance workers who don’t have an office or a desk, it can also be used for people who have offices but want a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and clear their mind.
We’re excited to announce that we’ll be sponsoring the Hive’s audio-video room, which means that we’ll be sending an employee or two over each week to assist the Hive’s members who have booked time in the A/V room with video production, as well as provide instruction to those who want it. The Hive’s A/V room offers lighting, a tripod, backdrops, a digital SLR camera, microphones, and an iMac, everything you may need for starting a podcast or weekly video series.
The work we will do at The Hive mostly involves assistance in production. We’ll help you get started, answer basic questions related to video production, and help facilitate your shoot. It’s a flexible time to have access to a video professional who can help guide your production to completion. Our level of involvement depends entirely on what you need, and we’re even offering a special rate for Hive members if you choose to take your production one step further and have us create it for you at our studio.
We’re thrilled to be a part of this new work revolution, and are eager to help assist you in your next production. If you have any questions on our services, please give us a call at 316-771-5050 ext. 206.
