Project: Election Season 2018
Bill Nelson for Senate & Amendment 4
We’re a small studio that thinks big. Get connected to the media universe and put your message out there. Go point to point to send live or taped HD video to a specific broadcaster or let us put your signal on a satellite orbiting 20,000 miles above the earth, to feed video to hundreds of outlets around the country in an instant. Blackburst worked with the Nelson for Senate campaign in 2018 to get strategic messaging to the masses via placing content on YouTube when appropriate and putting content on satellite for live distribution when necessary.
We also worked with representatives for Florida’s Amendment 4 campaign, providing live shot support for Democracy Now’s daily news program with campaign leader Desmond Meade.
