ADA New Dentist Message—Dr. Tal Masserman, Scottsdale, AZ

Director’s notes about filming a membership video for AzDA, featuring Dr. Masserman:

Yep, this is another lunchtime inspiration I had to film this promotion for the American Dental Association (ADA). Dr. Tal Masserman and his team (Scottsdale, Arizona), along with our team, had a blast. We ended filming around 10pm and everyone was pretty silly by then. Dr. Tal had a great sense of humor and was a joy to work with. This video was filmed early in my videography career. It was fun, but I can spot a lot of things I’d do differently now. Whether you’re a dentist, CPA, or videographer, your skill level (hopefully) improves as you move along in your career. It’s too bad I filmed this earlier in my film career. Dr. Masserman did a wonderful job—I just wasn’t that good at filming back then!
