I’m on location on a video shoot with Emmy Nominated Video producer Rick Toone today.
We are using the Bucks County Playhouse as a backdrop to illustrate some core principals of building your dreams.
The Bucks County Playhouse was founded by a group of individuals including playwright Moss Hart that acquired a grist mill dating to 1790.
Its productions often put to work well-known actors — among them, Grace Kelly, Bea Arthur, Colleen Dewhurst, Robert Redford, William Shatner, Leslie Neilsen, Jack Klugman, Walter Matthau, George C. Scott, Liza Minnelli, Don Knotts and John Travolta. It had the premieres of “Harvey,” “Barefoot in the Park” and “Give ’Em Hell Harry.”
But sadly, The Bucks County Playhouse, reached the end of an era when it was placed on the auction block after its lender foreclosed on the historic property last December.
The landmark theater, which opened in 1939, now faces an uncertain future.
Ralph Miller has owned the theater for 33 years said, “The pressures of this recession and our mortgage lender have taken the drive from me that is needed to keep the playhouse operating.”
Ever had your dreams and successes taken from you?
Even after massive or even historic success, life does not necessarily get easier.
But with every death there is a rebirth. The end of the dream is the start of a new era.
Rick and I are starting a new era in video production today.
If you are thinking about doing ANY kind of high-level video production we would like to talk to you.
Let’s get it off the drawing board, finished and into the hands of the people who need it NOW!
Even better, let’s put some money in the bank, by getting it out there QUICKLY so you can finally get the cash flow I know you can use today.
Rick Toone and I are in the process of picking just a few “Showcase” video productions to show off what we can do and YOUR project might be just the one to sparkle!

5 Video Social Media Package

Press Release Bookend Videos
Would you like to announce a new product, a new hire or a new website?
Video press releases are more eye-catching, head-turning and search engine friendly than their text based counterparts.
Use them as releases on your websites, submit them to press release services and drive traffic to all of your websites.
The problem is that you never know when news is going to happen and it will keep happening long after you leave the studio.
That’s where your Press Release Bookend Videos come into play.
Your package includes up to 5 short video bookends to wrap around your own video press releases plus b-roll footage for you to use to announce almost anything. Just add your own audio track to the video or insert a quick video from your Flip camera or webcam in the middle.
Professional Bio Video Package
Everyone gets to where they are from somewhere and this is your chance to let people know what brought you to this place. Tell your story in an engaging way and let people know that you are someone they can trust and respect.
This package consists of two professional versions of your bio (short and extended).
Use these videos to enhance your personal reputation and make the connection with your customers and provide third party validation through the use of professional voice over talent to tell your story. This is a great time to include testimonials and professional credentials.

Working with Academy Award winning directors and cinematographers was just a normal day for Rick.
It only takes a day!
Can you imagine shooting over 30 world-class videos in a single day?
With this world-class team it just happens!
Our team will work with your existing marketing, biographical and promotional materials, and existing graphic materials while we focus on your input during pre-production planning to create the video content and make recommendations on improving the video presentation.
The videos will mirror the message, passion and presentation of any existing promotional materials you may have and design concepts, branding, style and video ‘flow’ will be addressed in concert with you and our video production team.
The objective of the new video credibility package is to delivery your message, story, brand and vision in an exciting, professional and dynamic way while by using the power of video and communication technologies to enhance the reach of your brand messages and connections in the community and throughout the world.
This package will make sure to …
- Provide a clear, consistent and professional online message and branding.
- Promote brand awareness and increase visibility.
- Keep your supporters and business partners better informed.
- Increase the interaction of your community.
- Broaden exposure to millions of potential supporters with increased Internet, social media and off-line marketing.
- Generate additional leads, prospects and potential clients.
- Create professional credibility.
Our priority is setting the message, the strategies, call to action tactics and the assessment of the various options to execute a mass media drive to increase your visibility, brand and lead generation.
These choices are crucial to your success.
These needs will grow as the success of your marketing bears fruit and must be addressed in a step-by-step ongoing way through expert oversight and planning.
The purpose of an overall strategic video communications plan is to integrate all your marketing, organizing, research, direct service, public education, and advocacy efforts through the use of consistent, but specifically targeted professional videos.
By laying out a long-term overall strategy, you will be well positioned to be proactive rather than just reacting to the existing environment and it will easier for you to shape your branding and lead generation strategies and make them more effective.
It is important to understand that while your video marketing and media strategy will support your overall objectives and target audience, the tactics and tools are used differently in different arenas. For example, rather focusing on “blasting out your video message,” your social media effort will focus more on starting the conversation. Your social media strategy will be implemented in a slightly different way than other tactics in your communications plan such as email messaging, for example:
It is important that your organization have a solid Internet strategy in place to get the most of your video production efforts. This includes your web site, email marketing, and search engine optimization. Your video strategy will support and enhance these other components. For example, if your organization launches a successful campaign on Tobri, Facebook, YouTube or Twitter and it succeeds in generating buzz, you’ll want to make sure that a user looking for more information will be able to find your web site on Google. Luckily the strategic use of video makes that happen.
