Studio Quality Video on a Shoe String

A professional video can cost tens of thousands of dollars, or more. Much more. But it doesn’t have to…

This is my latest video for my day job. My equipment and software setup costs were less than half of what you would spend going to a dedicated video production company, and that’s a one time expense.

Being that digital marketing is now mostly about video, and your best strategy is to pump out constant (relevant) video content, producing them yourself is the only real choice for a lot of small and midsized companies.

The right computer, software, camera, microphone, an iPad-based teleprompter, a few lights, and a green screen is all I used to make what looks like a full studio production. None of them are what you’d consider “pro” equipment.

I’m actually thinking about writing a quick, no-nonsense book on how to do this. Do you think anyone would be interested?

What is this, and why does it break?

My latest video for my day job, I have had to redo this several times because of product name changes. Hopefully this one will stick. And continue breaking.

My Star Wars Video

I made this for my day job back when the last Star Wars movie came out. Being that Rogue One is being released today, I thought it might be a good time to showcase this here:
