Videography - Get Them Hooked
In trying to wean potential clients off traditional media, this video entertains a targeted audience while delivering its message. I found the best shots on the spot, directed the amateur actors, and captured the action at the same time. Having the final product in mind while shooting is key.
This was a sneak-peak of a long-version of the video. This was a big project where we had to coordinate with a production team on-site in Thailand. Lucky for us, they did a fantastic job shooting and we were able to meld their footage with ours to create video that educates, demonstrates, and motivates.
Video Editing - Quick Split
Sure, you can do the salesy thing and always promote specials to those ready to buy. But you can also connect with them earlier in their journey to show them who you are and what you do. Post-production on this was fun. Had to splice to halves of video together and blend so that the split was hidden. Then I adjusted the speed on one side to portray the speedy service of the client.
Video Editing - Get to Know Me
If potential customers have never interacted with you, all they know of you is brick and mortar. A testimonial goes a long way in giving those customers comfort, knocking down barriers before they even step foot in the door. And when the edits are timed to the right music, the power of the video is undeniable. Videographer: The James King Company (Denver, CO)
Video Editing - Next Gen Stuff
Yes, I am using this video to demonstrate my editing. But the edits were top of mind as it was shot. As you can imagine, working with non-acting youths can be a struggle. We had to break up the boy's parts so that he could get through his lines without issue. No problem. Utilizing b-roll I was able to cover many cuts with fun shots.
Video Editing - No Scouting Involved
I refer to this as "gorilla style". Many refer to it as run-and-gun. It can be a challenge to edit due to the nature of the background noise and constant camera movements. It's finding the right moments to help tell the story of the event that invokes an emotional reaction.
Video Editing - The Dog's Day
Featuring the dealership's mascot, we created a video that was sure to have the audience saying "Awwwwe". With a one-camera interview style, cutting away way to b-roll was key. Without it you wouldn't have a feel for how Henry interacted with friends and made the dealership a home away from home. Videographer: Dream Weaver Creative (Brookings, SD)
Video Editing - Demonstrate to Educate
In order to get customers comfortable with a process they've never been through, they need to see it. No better way to let them see it than through a video put together with a flow that reveals the process in an enticing way. Videography by: Miles & Mackenzie Videography (Davenport, IA)
