When the City of Fullerton issued a request for proposal for assistance on council chamber video production and related media services, Tripepi Smith and integrated partner Empire Media Productions stepped to the plate to bid. At the conclusion of the evaluation process, Tripepi Smith was the overwhelming choice of City Staff and the City Council confirmed the selection with a Council vote.

As the City’s new cablecast production partner, Tripepi Smith will produce and direct live public City Council and Planning Commission Meetings, produce the annual State of the City event and other special events as requested by City Staff. Senior Business Analyst Melanie James is the project lead, handling: crew scheduling, event logistics, project management and graphic design support.

“Live video of City Council meetings enhances transparency and provides an opportunity for the community to see their city council in action. It is an important aspect of transparency and local democracy,” said Melanie. “The City Council and City Staff in Fullerton are dedicated to keeping the public informed, and we deeply respect and value the faith they have placed in Tripepi Smith as a partner to achieve those objectives.”

The City of Fullerton has previously relied upon Tripepi Smith for media assistance including:

  • Onsite and phone A/V technical assistance for Fullerton Channel 3 as needed.
  • Produced the “Covid-19 Business Reopening Guidelines” video which included capturing b-roll around the City of Fullerton to be featured.
  • Designed lower thirds and opening/closing slide graphics for Fullerton Channel 3.
