On-Screen: Joe Bruno sits in front of a large metal box, and a large Helen Keller 125th Anniversary logo card is places beside him.

Joe: Hi guys, I’m Joe Bruno, I’m the C.E.O. at Helen Keller Services, We’re at 180 Livingston Street. This is our private lobby, which is under construction. The on-site meeting project team is just about ready to kick off, just wanted to give you a little bit of an idea of what’s happening. You’ll see lots of framing now. The rooms are being framed out, the big 44,000 square foot space is being broken down into where we’re all going to live for the next 30 years, or so.

On-Screen: The scene cuts to four slow left-to-right panning shots of inside the new building. Each shot shows an area of the building covered in large floor-to-ceiling metal bars arranged to outline different sized rooms. The scene cuts back to Joe Bruno speaking.

Joe: Hopefully I will be here as long. And we are seeing much progress! In the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen the floors being laid nice and flat, look beautiful,

On-Screen: The scene cuts to a bottom-to-top panning shot of the new floors, as two pairs of feet walk toward the camera. The scene cuts back to Joe Bruno speaking.

Joe: they really leveled out! We see rooms coming to life, We see air conditioning being put in now. Our architects are hard at work here, our engineers, our construction team, Tri-Star Construction is doing a great job!

On-Screen: The scene cuts to four left-to-right panning shots. Two shots show members of the construction team actively working on building the room. The other two shots show members of the construction team sitting at a long table discussing the project.

Joe: So I want to keep you guys in the loop, know what’s happening, we’re very excited about this project, and look, we’re months off from getting it done, but I’m going to try to continue to give you updates every couple of weeks while we go through this. Thanks a lot, see you soon!
