Slide Shows & Promotional videos
I LOVE MAKING PROMOTIONAL VIDEOS and SLIDE SHOWS - So...I must get on a SOAP BOX.
Sadly, the time it takes to make a solid slide show just doesn't warrant many people to hire professionals anymore. Thankfully, there are still people who prefer to use a professional.
Many creations today use too many photos and songs, or too many crazy transitions that make your head spin... Naturally, I don't think it's the best way to go. I'm an artist and think you should put LOTS of time (and heart) into a piece. It should make a statement, keep people engaged, and provide useful and new information or emotion for EVERY photo.
My goal when creating a video is to do at least one of the following: captivate the audience, move someone with emotion, inspire people to change how they create their own projects, entice them to watch it more than once, a happy client that will proudly use it, or, my favorite... for people to wonder how I created it (since their software can't do what I did!) Here a few of my favorites.
"Great video, and excellent music selection. I love watching short movies like this - they make me feel good :)"
