Crew Connection Tips and Tricks for Clients

The sickest drone videos from around the web

The sickest drone videos from around the web 2668 2000 Dani Lyman

There’s no question that drones revolutionized video and changed our viewing experience. From nature docs to corporate events, drones have captured beautiful footage from interesting angles that weren’t possible to achieve in the past. However, with technology quickly advancing, certified drone operators are pushing boundaries and taking aerial cinematography to a whole new level. Drones are increasingly being utilized across multiple professions to create cinematic and awe-inspiring footage – and even aid in saving lives.

Here are a few sick videos from around the web that highlight the badass tricks and practical capabilities of the modern drone.

Smooth Operator

In this commercial, Ford teamed up with Aerial Edge to capture a stunning shot we don’t usually see. Going beyond the usual “from above” view, the pilot squeezes the drone through the trees to allow the car to drive out of frame in one seamless move. It’s cinematic, perfectly paced and really challenges the status quo. Drone footage like this, which follows the action, is much more stimulating and exciting to watch!

Tricky One Shot

Do not let the easy flow of this video fool you! To accomplish these tricks so precisely, the drone operator has to be wildly talented and must completely understand the technology he’s working with. It’s much harder than it looks! Not only does he fly backward throughout the entire shot (what!?), he also perfectly times his movements to fly through small objects and tight spaces with complete accuracy. This beautifully constructed one-shot leaves no room for mistakes. In just a few minutes the sun will rise and he’ll lose the piercing light creeping up over the city. No wonder this was the 2017 Drone Film Festival Winner.

Lifesaving Technology

Drone technology company Aerones provides a great example of the diverse use of drones outside of the video industry.  In 2017, Aerones launched a drone that is able to carry a human being! Despite the sheer joy on the face of the jumper in the video, this beast isn’t just for adrenaline junkies and extreme sports enthusiasts. The massive drone was designed, in part, to aid rescue teams by dropping a person into the action or pulling someone out of a dangerous situation. Afraid of heights? You might want to look away. But, I wouldn’t recommend it. This is epic.

 

Catch their attention with a seriously well-done video

Catch their attention with a seriously well-done video 6000 4000 Dani Lyman

In an age when we have shorter attention spans than a goldfish, marketing videos have to be more creative and technically savvy to get viewers hooked.

 

In 2015, Microsoft Corp published a study that showed our average attention span plummeted from 12 seconds to 8 seconds – meaning we are as easily distracted as Dory and just as likely to forget what we watched. A video marketer’s goal must be to grab the attention of the viewer immediately, and then keep him watching with memorable content.

 

In film school we were taught that edits should be made approximately every 7 seconds to keep the audience interested. When you’re relying on video to market your company or build interest in your brand, you have to be fast moving, entertaining, and more than anything – creative.

 

Here are 3 examples of edgy brand marketing videos that combine innovative ideas, witty voice overs, flashy cinematography and out of the box editing techniques to create unforgettable content.

 

SLACK

Using popular sitcom techniques like exterior wide shots, cheesy intro music, and mockumentary style storytelling, Slack created a unique, laugh out loud, quirky 2-minute video that tells us who they are and why we want to use them.

 

DISSOLVE

No camera or corporate interview required. This piece by Dissolve successfully relies entirely on editing and snarky commentary on generic corporate videos to stand out in the crowd. Money well spent on compelling voice over talent and a kick ass editor who understands comedic timing.

 

FRESHBOOKS

A fresh take on Talking Heads. This video really highlights the value of a great producer on set.  Sarah’s genuine and confident presence on screen proves there was an experienced producer behind the camera putting her at ease. Beautiful lighting, unique framing and edits every few seconds keep the viewer’s interest visually, while creating a human element to Freshbook’s brand by making us truly interested in Sarah and her story.

 

 

A bad ass video production crew and post team can provide all the eye-catching, creative visual elements you need to hook your audience. It’s up to you to add your voice, style and unique brand to keep them coming back.

The future of video marketing

The future of video marketing 4605 2152 Dani Lyman

When it comes to interactive marketing videos, the future is here.

Images we once only saw in movies are now coming to life through our phones, headsets and tablets. Companies are no longer showing consumers who they are – they are engaging them by altering reality. And, if you aren’t incorporating motion graphics, augmented reality or virtual reality into your marketing videos then you are missing the mark on how to engage with your modern customers.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Josh Crist at a Crew Connection sponsored Colorado American Marketing Association event in Denver. Josh is a Video Growth Hacker with V3 Media, a Colorado-based video marketing agency. With experience in helping clients impact their audiences and get better video ROI, he was just the guy I wanted to talk to about the future of video marketing and how our clients can stay relevant in this fast-changing technical world. Josh had a few very helpful insights about the future of video marketing and beyond:

 

1. Trends in Technology and Video Marketing

According to Josh, the trends businesses need to focus on for the best video ROI are more interactive. “Trends that are starting to really come into their own are interactive videos, 360° videos and augmented reality, with virtual reality soon to follow.”

These terms may seem futuristic and intimidating, but they are more accessible than you think. Your favorite companies are using these technologies daily. Snapchat filters are a great example of AR being used every day – how many doe-eyed-deer filtered photos have you seen in the past month? Just take a look at Tinder. It’s all the rage.

 

2. Virtual Reality is the Future

When I think of VR it catapults me back to the early 90’s and I’m suddenly watching Demolition Man thinking I wouldn’t live long enough to see VR become an accessible technology. But, now, here we are in the future and businesses recognize they “can create a completely immersive experience for viewers [with] applications [far] beyond just traditional marketing” such as internal video training, education and experience design. Virtual reality is revolutionizing the branding experience. It “allows you to bake the marketing into the product (or experience) by doing cool and crazy/exciting things as a brand that delights your customers.”

A company that isn’t sitting on the sidelines, waiting for VR to become an easy, everyday marketing tool is Toyota. They are using VR to teach teens how to drive. After being stuck behind a student driver in traffic last week, I can all too easily see the benefit of a program like this.

 

3. The Best Way to Engage Your Customers Today

Josh doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to video marketing. In this world, if you aren’t ahead of the curve, you aren’t even in the race. An area he sees a lot of growth in and one companies should be jumping on now is augmented reality. He says, “AR keeps growing and seems to be a really strong way brands can create content that delights their customers. AR is expected to grow to $117.4 billion by 2022 and more and more applications for its technology keep showing up.”

A ridiculously awesome and practical way I’ve seen AR used is by the company Jura. They have an app that allows customers to virtually try on watches and compare before they buy. Why doesn’t every accessory brand have this? Pretty soon, Millennial consumers are going to expect all their favorite brands to provide them with an AR experience. Will yours be one of them?

 

4. Wow Them With Motion Graphics

We are living in a world that now blends reality and computer-generated images everywhere we turn. Your basic corporate video with the khaki-wearing spokeswoman isn’t going to engage the fresh talent you want to bring on board. If VR and AR are outside the scope of your budget and need, what else can you do to stand out?

Josh says it’s all about the graphics, “adding more visual elements to [your video] through graphics and overlays is a way to up the user experience. It also makes the video feel more interactive and engaging by supporting what the speaker is saying through different mediums within the video.”

Post-production is a key element to a great trending video. If you need to go with a simple video approach then let a talented motion graphics designer bling out your project with stylistic lower thirds, moving charts and fresh overlays to set you apart from the competition.

Don’t know any master graphics artists? That’s okay. We do. We have a massive amount of talented post production professionals in our database that can take your video to the next level.

How to Budget For the Production You Want

How to Budget For the Production You Want 4948 2902 Dani Lyman

Kurt Vonnegut may not have been talking about the Video Production Industry when he wrote, “In this world, you get what you pay for,” but it certainly applies.

In an effort to keep costs down, clients often cut corners when negotiating their budgets. “Why do we need a camera guy, an audio tech, and a grip? Can’t one person do all 3 jobs?” Not if you want the best quality product, an efficient shoot, and a video you can be proud of.

To save you time, stress, and money, there are a few key areas you never want to skimp on when planning a shoot.

 

Sound

Never skimp on the sound. Never.  A great audio tech is worth every penny.  The general consensus is: people are unforgiving when it comes to audio issues. An audience can sit through a video with less than appealing visuals, but bad sound makes them turn it off immediately!

Fuzzy dialogue, mic squeaks, and bursts of loud music make for a completely unpleasant viewing experience. Worse yet, these kinds of mistakes read as amateur. Speaking from personal experience, there’s nothing quite as embarrassing as a squeal coming from a speaker during a live event. Well, except watching your project with an audience and realizing you didn’t balance your levels. That’s pretty embarrassing too.

Great onset audio, sound editing, and music add depth and quality to a project which really ups the appeal and professionalism. You’ll walk away looking like the boss you are.

 

Experienced Crew

It’s true, you probably can get your neighbor’s best friend’s son to make a video on his iPhone for less than a tenured crew. But, nothing compares to having a team with years of technical knowledge, proven client relationships, industry & trouble shooting experience. A solid crew can save you money on reshoots by getting it right the FIRST time. They are usually better with time management and anticipating problems which can eliminate overtime and other expenses.

 

Budget Padding

Speaking of OT, clients often forget to plan for long days. You never know what can happen on set. Anything from traffic jams to a sudden burst of rain can cause a delay and send a shoot into overtime. Like our Crew Connection veteran Ashley says, “Be prepared. You can’t always plan for every bump in the road, so have some padding in your budget.”

That extra padding often applies to unforeseen travel expenses too. A crew should never have to pay for parking, tolls or hotel accommodations for your shoot. Depending on your project you may even need to fly in a DP or rent a car. When creating your budget, be prepared to see some mileage, airline tickets, parking fees and other travel expenses on the final invoice.

 

Food

This may seem like a minor detail, but it’s a big issue for a crew that’s lugging around heavy equipment and making quick decisions all day. To be on point, they need to eat. Don’t be cheap! Pizza isn’t going to supply your crew with the fuel they need to excel. For best results, plan for meals… and good meals at that.

Getting what you pay for doesn’t always mean spending more, it means spending smart. Proper expectations and a realistic budget are key to getting the most bang for your buck!

creative pitch

How to nail your creative video pitch for internal clients

How to nail your creative video pitch for internal clients 3499 2333 Heidi McLean

As the internal creative agency bidding for a project, you know the brand as well as anyone and you cross paths with the decision makers every day. That doesn’t mean you should approach it like a sure thing. Here are some ways to nail the creative video pitch, and make sure the project remains an inside job.

 

6 tips to nail your creative video pitch

 

1. Use your intimacy and access to your advantage 

Nobody knows a company and its brand better than the people who eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You know  the vision, the budget restrictions, and the decision makers’ likes and dislikes. You know which of the past campaigns accomplished the goal and which ones fell flat. As an insider, you have a unique position of internal knowledge and access. Keep everything you know in mind and use it to your advantage as you create your pitch.

2. Understand the project fully 

Take enough time to understand the project completely—the audience, the goal, the tone, etc. Ask questions. Once you understand it well, gather your creative team to brainstorm. Start with all the ideas, even if they’re terrible. Once you have a list of about 20 that feel like they have some meat, start picking them apart to find the holes.

3. Develop your ideas fully 

Take the top three ideas that made it through the gauntlet and develop them as well as you can among your internal team. Research reference materials for inspiration. From there, present the ideas to your colleagues as well as people unfamiliar with the company and product. Their questions and feedback will reveal where the holes are so you can rework.

4. Create an unforgettable presentation

Once you’ve developed your three ideas, choose a format (such as a storyboard or slideshow, for example) to present them. In addition to some images and/or reference materials that give life to the important beats, include a campaign name and a description of the tone and strategy.

5. Be prepared

Don’t take it for granted that, just because you walk by these people every day, they’ll forgive a sloppy presentation. Make sure your team is fully prepared and then pitch like your job or your paycheck or your next vacation depends on it.

6. Take a moment to breathe 

Giving your best is important (even if just so you can sleep well at night), but remember the stakes aren’t life and death. If all you’re thinking about is how you have to get this right…you’re almost surely going to get it very very wrong.

The bottom line 

The market is crowded with plenty of other hardworking, qualified individuals and agencies itching for a chance to bid the same project. Do your homework and nail your pitch to ensure you’re the one who wins the job.

crewing service you can trust

Crewing services from a trusted source? Yes, please!

Crewing services from a trusted source? Yes, please! 4000 3750 Heidi McLean

From dating websites to Yelp reviews, online profiles aren’t exactly known for being trustworthy. Anonymity makes it easy to game the system, and some businesses even pay for glowing reviews of their products or services. What if there were a third party service to confirm that a potential date’s hair is real or a company’s reviews are from actual customers?

Whether booking crewing services or finding a date, it’s just nice to have some reassurance you’ve found a good match.

International crewing made easy

International crewing made easy

International crewing made easy 760 350 Heidi McLean

Seasoned producers get into a rhythm. Before they even set up a project, they have a decent idea of how long the project will take, how much money they’ll spend, and the team they want on the job. Make that shoot international though, and you’re sure to throw even the most experienced professional off balance. That said, it doesn’t have to be a painful experience.

For the scoop on both what makes international crewing painful and what makes it easier, we picked Crew Connection’s Project Owners’ brains. Our Project Owners have daily contact with both crews and clients looking for crewing services. Together, they’ve had their hands in shoots from Texas to Taiwan. Here are five considerations that can make hiring an international crew a pain along with three tips to make the whole thing that much easier.

 

Five factors that can make hiring an international crew painful:

  1. Time zone differences: Anytime you work with someone in a different timezone, communication takes a little extra effort. Internationally, that effort can become Herculean. You may be on the exact opposite end of the clock as those you’re working with and still need to be available for meetings or damage control. Odd hours and late-night or early-morning emails are a given. Time differences can even affect post-production. Shipping files on drives is still the most reliable form of transferring footage, but leaves plenty of room for error in other ways.
  2. Local laws and regulations: Different countries have different rules so what is a no-brainer in one place may be a no-go in another. Crews don’t want to adopt the responsibility of making sure what you’re asking them to do is in line with local rules. It’s still your job to talk to make sure you’re covered.
  3. Vetting: Anyone can pick up a camera and point it at a scene, but we all know it takes a different level of skill to make sure it’s something you are comfortable representing you and your brand. Demo reels and work examples, which are crucial to your ability to judge the quality, may not be as easy to find on some international crews.
  4. Extra expenses: In addition to travel costs, working internationally means extra expenses in exchange rates, wiring fees, shipping costs and more. It all adds up. A lot of international crews also require a deposit (or even the full payment) before the shoot begins. Additionally, you may need to hire a bigger crew than you’re used to. What is a one-person job in your experience could be a three-person job abroad.
  5. Extra risk: As a rule, you take on more responsibility and therefore more risk in international shoots. It doesn’t need to be a deterrent in itself, but it’s good to be aware.

 

Tips to make international crewing easier:

Yes, it really can be a pain, but there are some ways to set yourself up for success.  

  1. Over communicate: Ask a ton of questions. Talk with crews about rates, equipment, the timeline, which crew members are required to be on set, etc. Talk to the local film commission or equivalent (if applicable) and get all permits and releases before you send money or start filming.
  2. Learn international business etiquette: It takes some effort to learn a few business etiquette basics, but it will save you some trouble later to have an awareness of local business practices and labor laws up front.
  3. Hire the right partners: A crewing service (like Crew Connection) can make sure you have a qualified crew while also handling all the fees, addressing the time zone differences, and easing the language barriers.

 

The bottom line

Doing it all on your own can be challenging, but with a little extra work up front and the right partners in the effort, even international shoots can be as smooth as French silk.

Building your brand with video: A how-to

Building your brand with video: A how-to 4256 2832 Heidi McLean

Think video might help accomplish your goal of building your brand? You’re right.

Video content is surpassing text online at a rapid pace. We don’t even have time to read a whole phrase like “be right back,” favoring “brb” instead. The marketing world is responding in kind. L’Oréal, for example, is working on 6-second commercials to replace those cumbersome 30-second ads of the past. It’s unwise and unprofitable to ignore your audience’s increasingly teeny tiny attention span. Srsly.

If video isn’t a central part of your brand already, it’s time to make it so. Here’s how to make a video that speaks to your audience.

Three tips for building your brand with video

  1. Know your audience. This is the first rule of all communication, and therefore, of marketing efforts. It’s essential to effectively building your brand. If you’ve spent any time in meetings with marketing teams and ad agencies, you may be surprised by how much time they spend on this point before talking about the message or the product. That’s because if you don’t know to whom you’re speaking or what literal and figurative language speaks to them, you’re already missing the boat.
  2. Focus first on the why, not the what. Simon Sinek makes a strong case for focusing on your cause and beliefs in the way you “think, act, and communicate” before you talk about facts and figures. Apple is one of the ultimate examples of this. They sell their products, which, at the core, function remarkably similarly to their competitors’ offerings, using language that focuses more on their core beliefs and on “thinking differently” than on the nuts and bolts of their product.  
  3. Keep it simple, but sharp. You don’t have to have stunning effects and the latest technology to capture your audience’s attention. Simple videos that speak to the target audience and focus first on the why are most effective.

The bottom line

Okay, so you’re convinced you have to have video in order to reach your audience and you know that in the digital age, the shelf life of those videos is ridiculously short. So why not just shoot and edit on your phone and move on? Simple: Because the only thing worse than no video is a bad video. Shaky footage will make your audience sick and bad audio and poor quality will cheapen your brand. It’s best to get the pros on the job. And using our global crewing database makes it easier than ever to hire a video crew that will represent your brand well.

production crews crew connection scott stewart

Featured Crew: Resolution Post production crew

Featured Crew: Resolution Post production crew 640 360 Heidi McLean

Whether they’re pros at filming, post-production, stills, drone photography, or a little bit of everything—our crews are the bee’s knees. We know that for a fact because our team personally vets every single one of them before adding them to our global crewing database.

 

We thought it was about time to toot some of their horns, starting with Scott Stewart and Resolution Post.

We love working with Resolution for the same reasons our clients do:

1) They are flexible and offer a wide range of production services—from green screen shooting to editing and graphics work.

2) They’ve fully adopted our online platform which allows them to seamlessly work with us and our clients.

For the scoop on what makes Resolution such rockstars we talked with Scott Stewart, Resolution Post’s Creative Director and President, and a true gem in the industry. He’s been with the company for over 25 years and does everything from filming to post production; which includes color correction, editing, graphics animation, After Effects, and Cinema 4D worlds.  

 

Crew Connection: What sets you apart?

Scott Stewart: We can do everything in house. After we do the shoot, we take it back into the suite, do the creative aspects, and deliver the final product. That means we can accommodate just about any situation. One of the benefits to clients is that you save time in post when the guy shooting the project also edits it.

 

CC: What gear do you offer and what are your specialties?

SS: I can shoot with all the cameras. I learn the technology when it comes out. Rather than investing in several different cameras and being limited to those, I invest in the lenses and lights so I can accommodate different clients who want different packages. It’s a smooth transition from camera to camera because I just need to get the settings right for the environment.

 

CC: What are some interesting and challenging projects you’ve worked on recently?

SS: We had a client ask us to create a galaxy for them. Our Art Director, who can build a model in the 3D world, dug into his tool bag and figured out how to do it.

We also work with professional athletes who don’t have a lot of time. That means we have to pull off perfection in less than five minutes. We charge batteries, clear audio cards, and do all camera checks ahead of time so we can stay in front of everything and make it work.

One of the coolest jobs we’ve done recently is editing a three-episode run of FIFAKING (also known as Chad Johnson…also known as Ocho Cinco).

 

CC: What are your favorite tools and why?

SS: My new favorite tool is the GH5—Panasonic DSLR. It shoots 4K 422 uncompressed footage to a Ninja Inferno monitor/recorder. It’s a lightweight package that works with Cine DS Rokinon lenses. I also have a cool mixer (Zoom H6) right on the camera so we can cut out the sound person for smaller shoots.

All of that means we can match our camera packages to the budget and client while still offering excellent quality. We can do a nice corporate shoot or a green screen shoot without using a RED. The truth is that if you put footage from a RED Dragon next to a GH5, very few people can tell the difference—especially on the web.

And for bigger broadcast jobs, we can still use a RED, Alexa, or Sony F5 and hire larger crews to support the scope of the project.

 

CC: Why do clients like working with you?

SS: We focus on customer service and go above and beyond for every job. If we’re not done with a project at 5 p.m. and it’s due the next morning, we’ll stay until 3 a.m. to see it through. If I get an email at 9 p.m. that the client needs the video in a different format, then I send it to them from home. It’s all about relationships.

Where you choose to eat. Where you choose to work. Where you choose to live. Location means everything.

That’s why it’s one of the first things we ask you when you’re searching for a video and post production provider on Crew Connection. So we must have location filtering pretty locked down, right? Maybe not as much as you’d think. Here’s why that’s a good thing.

Crews who have satellite offices or are based in small cities will often serve locations outside of the standard 25 mile radius at little or no cost. If our stellar crew in itty bitty Mason, Texas, happens to be the only one available to cover your event in Austin on short notice, Crew Connection gives them the flexibility to choose if they want to charge for travel or not. All you have to do is hop into your Crew Connection messages to work out the details with them before booking the project.

At Crew Connection, we strive to empower our video and post production providers to make their own business decisions while ensuring that you are matched up with the perfect team for your project—whether it’s around the block next month or at each of your international offices next week.
