The location of the shoot can be your space or ours.  Generally, a business pitch or demo can be most effective in your space.  More personal messages benefit from a neutral space.  The location can be outside or indoors. Concept:  You create an idea for the video.  This may relate to your business – demo, personal intro, promotion for the entire business or – even better – focusing on one specific product or service.  The topic might also be something personal.  It might relate to a cause you support, an issue on whose behalf you wish to speak, a personal message, or any other legitimate reason.  Consider video for FAQs, profiles of your staff, tutorials and more! Preparing Content:  You can provide up to 10 still photos or other images to include. Preparing/Scripting:  It is advisable to jot down a script or at least some notes as you think of points you wish to cover.  The most effective stories are those that get quickly to the point, make 2-3 key points, summarize and end it.  Depending on how quickly you speak, 150 to 200 words can be delivered in 60 seconds. Lighting/Audio:  The Benjamin Minute video utilizes available light and sound.  In choosing the location for your video, be sure there is plenty of light available - especially for indoor shots – and no distracting ambient noise (we can time the shoot to go between take-offs and landings, but can't escape loud air conditioning or other equipment noise).   We can work with you in selecting an optimum location. Additional Assets:  Be sure to schedule any other resources you will require for the scheduled time of the shoot.  All the people, props or other elements must be present – or must be in hand – for the actual shoot to be included.  Once the shoot is concluded we will edit and complete your video.  Editing:  When the shoot has been completed, your video goes into editing and we will deliver the finished product – actually a link to the finished product – within one week.  Other schedules can be negotiated. Distribution: We will post your video on a public video server (there are a couple of options) and also provide instructions for your Webmaster, if needed, for embedding your video on your web page, and for including the link in an email.  * Limitations/Caveats: •  You can include copyrighted material only if a) you own the copyright or b) you demonstrate you have the needed permissions. •  We will not produce videos that are in any way illegal, or which would violate the terms of any ISP, YouTube or other video or online providers. •  We will travel within Franklin County Ohio at no extra charge.  Outside Franklin Co. charges begin at $1.00/mile. •  Shoots canceled or rescheduled within 48 hours of the scheduled time will incur a $50 rescheduling fee.
