What's Needed by You?
It's important to know what you want, what's expected from you and how we will help each other. Here are some bullet Points to help if needed.
*What is it you want people to know about you? Be aware of the main draw for your business, non-profit, event or services that this is trying to promote. It's one thing to simply say hire my services or buy my product, but what is it that makes you stand out? Know that before we start.
*Keep things reasonable. We all have grand ideas of what we'd like to create, but over-ambitiousness can make for a far more difficult video shoot. Know the limits of what we can do, plan within those limits and make the best possilbe product we can in them.
*Be prepared. If your going to speak a rehearsed bit, want a location highlighted or a product presented, have it ready. Rehearse your lines and reread your script. Make sure locations are not only prepared for filming but are allowed to be filmed at. Have whatever product you want shown ready.
*Prepare for mistakes. In film school, they taught us to trust in a particular law, Murphy's Law. If it can go wrong, it will go wrong. So be prepared for issues to occur. Even if it's an hourly shoot and a short production window, be ready in case issues arise to prolong or delay.
*Be as open and honest as possible. My goal is to best present you to people out there so they can see what you offer and whether they should seek you out. In order to do that, I need up front and honesty. I must know about what your offering, why your offering it and the rewards for it. In order to represent that, I need you to be straight forward so I can understand and best show that.
