Milwaukee Video Production Meets Milwaukee Beer Production

Milwaukee Video Production Meets Milwaukee Beer Production

Video Storytelling – Milwaukee, Wisconsin Battles Craft Beer Growth

Besides cheese, what is Milwaukee, Wisconsin known for? Beer.
Most Wisconsinites would know this answer. However, regulations from the age of prohibition are keeping craft breweries from expanding in Milwaukee and a state known for beer – Wisconsin. I remember when we first moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My wife and I were amazed that you could attend a festival and walk around with open beer. The places we lived in the past would rope off the areas where we were supposed stay in order to partake in that frothy beverage of hops and barley. Milwaukee, Wisconsin seemed a place where the brats, cheese and beer flowed freely. That is, up until the advent of craft breweries.


Video Producer Needed

Video Producer Needed

Why should you hire a video producer?

Or in other words, why should you hire me – a video producer with over 25 years of experience? Similar to another blog I wrote about DIY Video vs. Professional Video Production, there is good reason to hire a professional when homemade is not good enough.

I have produced thousands of videos since starting in the industry years ago. I began shooting, editing and creating graphics back when MTV was getting its footing in our culture. In fact, that whole handheld, erratic style of documentary shooting and editing started with my generation. It’s interesting to see the style come back as if it’s new again. Although with the advent of vlogging supertstars like Casey Neistat, the styles of today have taken that MTV handheld style to a whole new level. The tools are readily accessible to anyone, but not everyone has the knowledge to create a professional video. Most projects are not served well by the DIY mentality. There’s a good reason to use a pro.

Video Production Meets Ad Agency Collaboration

Video Production Meets Ad Agency Collaboration

Successful Advertising Takes a Comprehensive Team

In today’s world, where Super Bowl ads are just as popular as “the big game” or YouTube product demonstrations supplement or take the place of in-box instructions, video production is becoming instrumental in the advertising world. But with all the demands, sizes and specialties of ad agencies, they may not have the capabilities or time to keep up with client video production needs and may need to outsource.

3D Animation – Beyond Movies for Business Video Production

3D Animation: Reaches Beyond Movies Into Today’s Products and Services

Do you remember watching Disney Pixar’s Toy Story for the first time and being wowed by how the characters seemed to jump off the screen? Or what about the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park? Or Shrek? So did cinematographers and animators alike. Animation has transformed over time from 2D (hand-drawn by illustrators since the 1800s) to 3D (fully computer-generated) in fairly recent time, but this animation style is not just for movies. 3D animation is now more accessible to everyone for catching the eye of customers and consumers.
