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

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.

Animation On A Budget

June 16th, 2015 Posted by Uncategorized No Comment yet

When I decided to go to art school to study animation, my older and wiser brother gave me some advice. He said that art is something that everyone wants, but no one wants to pay for. Because of this he warned me not to under value my work as an artist and to demand fair compensation for the work that I did. Well, soon after graduating I discovered another uncomfortable truth.

Each client is unique in product and service, but all clients have the same need to be seen and heard.  How we are seen and heard is important.  A bad video is like showing up to an interview in a ripped t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops.  You get the picture.  Put your best foot forward and create sales by putting on your Sunday best.  Create a video that attracts, not detracts from your unique selling proposition.
