Public Speaker Promotional Video Production

If you are a public speaker or presenter this is an example of how we can take a few excerpts from your live presentation together with your PowerPoint slides (if applicable) and combine it with a prepared voice over to create a nice promotional video production that will provide meeting planners and other potential prospects with an idea of the material you will cover as well as a taste of your presentation style. A video  like any of these is a must have for every professional public speaker.

The public relations director for speaker and former NFL player Dr. Robert Watts provided me with a number of video clips that I edited and assembled in to the promo video below.

I shot this Reggae band music video for Tony Aiken and Future at the Wild Hare in Chicago. This is an overdub performance shot multiple times from various angles then edited with some posterization and other lighting effects.

Music video production Chicago

Music performance video production shot at the Roots Room in Chicago. We used two cameras and shot the song multiple times from various angles while the musician performed along to a pre-recorded track for synchronization. In post-production we added some additional visuals, lyrics and lighting effects. This is a perfect solution for a small budget demo, shot in one session and in one location.

Reno did an outstanding job putting together a music video for me for a good price. His work is very creative and emotionally resonant. He’s also a good guy and a pleasure to work. He was available to work quickly, and he delivered a final product within two days! I would highly recommend. -Brian J
