If the reason you’re having a video done is to bring in more revenue and more customers, wouldn’t it make sense to hire a marketing professional to film your video? After all, isn’t that what marketing is? Beyond having peace of mind that they’re in good hands, and that they’re going to have a wonderful experience, clients trust me to film their promotional video because I have a knack for driving in new business. It might be luck, or it might be that my degree is in marketing and that I’ve lived and breathed marketing for about twenty years.
If a video production company or creative professional tells you, “I can work with everyone,” run, don’t walk in the opposite direction. As for me, I specialize in filming marketing videos that really work for Arizona (mostly Scottsdale, the East Valley, and Phoenix) small businesses, dentists and dental practices, and sports teams, coaches, and athletes connect on a personal and emotional level. I don’t work on big-budget films, documentaries, infomercials, or anything like that.
If I sound like someone who fits what you’re looking for, see what else I bring to the table…
Filming promotional videos is tough. I invest 25-35 hours into every project. Outside of schlepping the heavy camera gear around, I love it, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. You’re going to feel that energy and enthusiasm if we work together. It’s infectious — in a good way
As is climbing a mountain, interviewing on camera can be intimidating. Think of me as an interview sherpa with almost 200 climbs. I’ve interviewed a lot of people. I specialize in getting people who’ve never been on camera to be comfortable, confident, and relaxed, so don’t let interviewing scare you. I’ll be there to guide and encourage you, and I’ve got a bag of insider tips and tricks to help us through the process! Talking on camera is going to be SO MUCH easier than you expect.
What? You don’t have superpowers?
Nonsense. You do.
In fact, one of my superpowers is to help you find yours.
It doesn’t matter how many competitors you have, or if you’re not even sure what makes you stand out from the crowd. You have superpowers that make you unlike anyone else out there Whether that’s your story, your values, your personality, your team/family, or how you do things, there’s something impressively unique about you. My job is to uncover what your superpowers are, and then we’ll share them with the world.
When our video’s ready for everyone to see, you still might not be able to leap tall buildings with a single bound (don’t do that, it’s dangerous), but you’re going to feel like a superhero.
Everything I feature in your video is focused on two things: making sure you connect with your audience on a personal and emotional level, and making sure your audience feels as if they know, like, and trust you by the end of the video. When we do those two things, the results are magical. Oh, and down to the smallest details, my focus is also on helping you to make an indelible, credible first impression with your target audience — and making you look and sound your best.
Having a video created by someone who doesn’t thoroughly understand branding, consumer behavior, and marketing principles is like buying a car with no engine: It may look good, but it won’t do much. While clients have described me as a “walking creative department”, I am a marketing professional who just happens to use video as a canvas to drive in customers. Videographers do not have a formal or practice background in marketing (driving in new business). I do. Results matter.
I’ve had clients ask if I can film “something quick and dirty” for them. No dice. It’s not that I don’t want to accommodate people. In addition to their name’s being associated with the video, mine is too, so cutting corners or just filming something “okay” isn’t an option. You’re going to get my best effort — I don’t know any other way to work.
One of the video editors / videographers I managed at a mega church in Chandler, Arizona, was more than capable as a director. However, in working with her on a few projects, I noticed how abrupt, impatient, and even condescending she was to the people we filmed. She seemed to feel that she had the right because it was her responsibility to keep the project moving at top speed. Unacceptable I’ll work hard so we end up with a great video; at the same time, I’ll make sure everyone on set feels appreciated and enjoys themselves. In fact, I’ve been told by other film directors they appreciated my encouraging and upbeat demeanor on set. Expect great results and a great experience from me and my team.
Admit it, you’ve never seen this on any other video production or marketing agency website, have you? Why not? Well, I won’t speculate as to why companies are not more honest about this. Perhaps they don’t like self reflection or they don’t want to lose business.
In being straightforward with you, I am not a fit for everyone. That’s okay.
I want to make sure you have the information and the confidence to ensure you hire the right videographer to film your video — even if that’s not me. I’ve heard too many horror stories over the years of clients who felt duped into hiring the wrong video production people. I don’t want that to happen to you; videos take too long and cost too much to get them wrong. That said, here are a few reasons to move in a different direction:
If I sound like someone you’d like working for you, drop me a line here. Let’s talk.
