The movies started simple, one take, one moment. Then as I became more familiar with editing and the tools available to me, I started branching out a bit, trying to tell a story. And I found that I LOVED it. It's a completely different way to approach a visual subject. And as I added the element of audio, in most cases for me music, editing became an art in and of itself.
After sharing my indulgent home movies with friends I was asked to create my first commercial video. With social media like Twitter and Facebook, and video sites like YouTube and Vimeo, short films can be a creative and entertaining way to share information. I jumped at the chance to help my friend Cyndi create a promotional video for her new cloth diaper service, Smarty Pants. Smarty Pants is not only the brain child of a dear friend, but an idea I can get behind. I hope our little video helps garner support and has the customers lining up!
(I suggest watching at 480p, but you might have to let if buffer for a minute)
If you think your business could benefit from a short film like this, I'd love to hear from you!
