Video Marketing Microphone Test: COMICA CVM-30 LITE vs CVM-10 II vs Edutige ETM-006

If you're a business owner doing some video marketing, then you need to have good audio for your videos. When your videos sound bad, they are hard to watch, which means you'll lose an opportunity to attract a new customer. That would suck. So don't let your audio suck.

Video Studio Setup for a Client

I recently helped a client set up a studio space in their office so they can make videos whenever they have time. This video documents the process, as well as showing a before and after of the space.

Event Video for The Pacific Club

Event videos are commonly used to show off how cool you are to others. But event videos are also a great way to build morale, communicate your values and attract talent to your organization.

The problem is that most event videos are not created with this level of forethought and are merely a bunch of nice-looking images strung together.

An effective, good event video should have specific goals in mind before shooting begins so that the final video can be used as a strategic marketing and branding tool.

Wills & Estate Planning Video for Shire Law Group, PC

Alan Press and Caren Naidoff of Shire Law Group, PC in Illinois wanted an animated explainer video for their wills and estate planning services that would speak to the diversity of their client base. The video also had to have a sense of playfulness, while also explaining their process for helping clients create their will or estate plan.

This one was extra special because Caren provided the awesome voiceover!

Branding Your Business with Video

Went out for a walk with my son today and created a little movie about it. The important thing about these types of videos is showing some sort of theme or evoking emotion.

This is true for personal branding or business promotion... your audience should feel somehow connected to you through your videos.

Don’t make the mistake of only creating something that might look cool but has no substance, especially if you want to use video as a tool to help your business differentiate from your competition.

Whiteboard Animation Video for North Shore Business Network

This is a video for a networking group I belong to in North Vancouver called North Shore Business Network. I made this video because I felt bad that I couldn't go in to set up the projector and slides, especially since I was the backup as the normal tech guy, Nick, was away on holiday.

Anyway, this video is a demonstration of how whiteboard animation videos are a great way to explain things in an engaging way.

I'll be the first to admit that the drawings aren't that great…

But it's not about the art, it's about the message or idea. I heard that from Doug Neill, the guy with the YouTube Channel about Sketchnoting.

How the video was made

  1. Plan out idea/story… What problem was I trying to solve?

  2. Sketch out rough draft on paper with visuals I need… What was the story/progression?

  3. Draw all the visual elements following my rough draft… How do I represent things visually?

  4. Import visuals into whiteboard software

  5. Record and edit voiceover

  6. Edit the length of the visuals to match the voiceover

Hope this helps with the tech set up and let me know if you would like your own custom whiteboard animation video.

Wills & Estate Planning Video for Lynk Law

Lynk Law provides wills and estate planning services in California and wanted a video to help promote their services in a friendly, engaging way.

Animated videos are great for describing services in an easy to watch, fun way. Animated videos also tend to have a longer shelf life because they’re unaffected by employee turnover, changes to your office or hairstyles and fashion.
