Okay, so it isn’t Oscar material, and we just put this together at home on Saturday, but take a look at our first marketing video, "Meet the Blog Squad" on YouTube.
If you see me starting to laugh towards the end, the big smile is because Dewey the cat walked over to try to weasle his way into the shooting.
We’ve mentioned before that you will be seeing more videos on the Web as the technology gets easier and friendlier. We had never done a video before. We started at about 11 a.m., only did one take, then edited it over at my husband’s office in under an hour. We were done by 1:30 p.m.
Although The Hubby did the editing for us because he has the software (Microsoft Movie Maker that comes with Windows XP), it was nothing we couldn’t have mastered ourselves in a few hours.
Obviously, there are a few things we wished we had done better: it should be shorter, we should have been sitting better, our dialogue could have been tighter… but hey, for a first time it’s not a bad little marketing clip.
Tell us what you think, and give us your honest feedback. We are pretty tough, and won’t cry…
