Never Work With Live Animals

Posted by RBP Team on Oct 3, 2019 12:31:23 PM

The event business has its share of lore, including some horror stories. Here are two that stand out, both of which fall under the maxim of "never work with live animals." An automobile company was launching a new car to a large live audience. The actual reveal of the car would be The Big Moment at the end of the event.

A Conversation With Jeremy Driesen On The Proposal Process

Posted by RBP Team on Sep 21, 2016 5:37:00 PM

Being a high end production company, we’re often asked to submit proposals for some great projects we’re being considered for. We sat down with Jeremy Driesen, President and CEO of Ray Bloch Productions, to discuss the proposal process, how it has changed over the years, and the highs and lows of competing against other proposals. It’s been continuous evolution since I started in the business back in 1995. Back in the day, it was fairly standard that we would print out our proposals, and present them in 3-ring binders.
