write, produce, direct, shoot, edit, repeat

Every corporation has a message.  To make it known they need a short introductory piece that explains who they are and what they do.  In a short period of time, people can tour your facility, get to know your staff, and get a strong feeling for what makes you unique.

But for years, making a corporate video—what used to be called an industrial—was a huge expense when compared to how many people might see it: no one is going to take the time to watch that DVD, and you don’t get many visitors to your actual location.  But today, every company has a website, and people can visit you at all hours of the day and night.  It’s a huge liability NOT to have a strong piece of media that explains what your company’s vision and goals, and what sets you apart.

We’ve made every type of corporate and industrial video or film imaginable, and look forward to showing you what we’ve done.

Selecting a proper location is important when videotaping your customers, we make sure it has the following attributes:
Sufficient natural light, or enough space to use artificial lighting that we provide.  Minimal background noise from HVAC systems, neon lights, nearby elevators, noisy hallways, and office workers. Sometimes a little background noise from other office workers can be a desirable feature that adds a sense of vibrancy and activity to a scene.  We try to distance the interview from floor traffic. Lobbies can be a great location, provided that people aren’t getting off elevators every few minutes and walking through your shots.  We’ll setup enough physical space for our equipment, our subject, and the camera crew. We’ll get the right footage you need to make your video message a success.

Videos are one of the most credible forms of customer endorsement because the words are literally coming straight from the customer’s mouth. Not only that, but videos require very little time to watch, as opposed to written testimonials which involve a greater time investment on the part of the consumer.

Testimonial videos can help you a lot when it comes to building trust and informing your target audience about how good your product is. In this context, we can say that these types of videos work very well for the decision stage of the buyer’s journey. Remember that at this point, your prospects are aware of a certain problem/need they have, and found you among the most interesting alternatives in the market, BUT are not sure if they should go with you or not. So, testimonial videos are the “push” they need to take that next step. Your clients are some of your biggest advocates. As such, client testimonial videos are one of the most powerful marketing tools available for establishing credibility and trust. Actual user experience from a real-life customer may be just the vote of confidence your potential customers need in order to choose your company over the competitors.

We’ve been doing a lot of Teleprompter shoots for many types of companies.

There are certainly a lot of things to consider prior to enlisting a teleprompter on your shoot.

Consistency between takes – Probably the most obvious. You have a script. In theory, your Talent will read it. And you know what they are going to say. This helps a ton in conducting the interview, a keeps everyone on the same page as to what is going to be said.

Controlled message – On that note, having a pre-approved script means that all team members know ahead what will be said on set. This is a big help with larger teams, or making sure that higher-ups know what content will be included in the video. Your biggest job on set though, is to make sure your Talent doesn’t look like a robot delivering this message.

Faster turnaround time – (In most instances) shooting with a Teleprompter improves turnaround times in the post production realm. Your shooting ratios should also improve using a teleprompter compared to straight interviews.

Can easily adapt message on the fly – Even though there’s a script, it’s easy to tweak the script on the fly. That said, if there are major changes it can get a little tricky. You need to make sure that the message stays consistent and on target with your team’s goals. But BEWARE this can be a Pandora’s box! We’ve been in too many shoots where the script opens up for discussion, and everyone thinks they have an answer. Dedicate one person as the script supervisor. Someone who won’t get caught up in listening to everyone’s opinions and who can keep the shoot on track.

Consider the camera angle – Most of the times, your Talent is looking directly looking to camera. This is important to keep in mind. This means a second camera is going to be at an angle (the Talent won’t be looking directly at the camera unless they turn to address it, and that camera too has a teleprompter). Just keep in mind that some viewers find switching to an an angle where the Talent doesn’t address the camera awkward if the Talent was just looking directly at the camera.

Sense of timing – With a teleprompter script, you’ll get a pretty accurate understanding as to how long your video will be. You can eliminate sections on the fly if you find your video is running too long.

Do you really know who you are hiring and working with on your drone related video production and photography projects?

Ask for examples of their work, references, and ask to see their Drone Pilot License, equipment registration, and even their insurance policy.

Dangerous Cowboy Drone “operators” are everywhere now.  A few are licensed, most are not.  We are fully FAA compliant, while our competitors ask who and what the FAA is and what are the rules.  We get calls from these types everyday.

When it really counts, beware of the amateurs who can endanger your company with their inexperience and lack of regulation.

We also offer full service video production and photography and we have been in business since 1982.  We are the professionals who often are called upon to teach others.

We’ll help you define your target audience

Marketing is about positioning and communicating your unique value to a very specific audience. Your product or service won’t appeal to everyone. In fact it probably won’t appeal to that many people at all. You have to ensure that you craft a message that is tailored to the specific concerns of a very well defined audience.  That sounds risky because if you narrow the focus of your message you have to leave stuff out. The only thing riskier than that is leaving everything in.

We’ll help you show and tell

Video is by far the fastest growing marketing tactic in use today because it informs and persuades better than any other media type. Video is a visceral experience that engages the audience both visually and orally. Why just explain how your product works when you can actually show people using and benefiting from that product? Video is gaining popularity because it is the best means of conveying a great deal of information quickly to your audience.

We’ll help you focus on your customer

Your customer wants to know how you can solve their problems – that’s what matters to them.  And yet the vast majority of corporate videos today are still not written from the customer’s view point, we’ll help show you how.
