As part of an incentive program to get small businesses to take the leap and get a video done Absolute Video Services Inc. is going to start a "Meet Our Business" program through starting a website. Every video we make of a certain type will be featured on our business promotional website in addition to the customers original use. We will also generate a QR code for each customers video for them to use as they see fit for their own promotional efforts.
I just got back from a production meeting for the movie "Detained". I am not doing any of the "heavy lifting" on this job. I dont have to. Everyone here is very competent at their job. I think that if I get in the credits beyond "Special Thanks To" , my title will probably be called "production consultant". I am told that I am useful at these meetings because of my general technical background, and as a go-between.
Today John Sheehan from Dogstar7 came by. He wanted to celebrate the 1 millionth view of a video that he posted on Youtube. Dogstar7 is an ongoing video blog that has a lot to do with citizen journalism. The video is about the Westboro Baptist Church. In the video a student talks about defeating their picketing efforts by using them to raise money for the very things they protest against. This is a must see, it has changed the way people deal with this group all across the country. We drank cognac and then went to the all you can eat Chinese buffet till we couldn't move.
Worked on the new business card today. I put a QR code on the front of my business card that jumps to website. I am still working on the back of the card, and i think I have an entertaining idea.
This blog is a look at our business behind the scenes, and also a few of our side adventures.
