“More than 3.5 billion pieces of content are shared weekly online via social media.” - Jake Hird, Econsultantancy

More and more we find that the internet is the most effective way to reach clients. With faster SmartPhones, new Tablet PCs and all the other peripherals and devices that allow you to connect online and find relevant information, search the web and access just about anything you want to know, it is imperative that your company keeps up with the times.

A New Vision for a New Year

Welcome to the year 2010!

The future is here, and with this new year comes a new vision, a rebirthing of who we are and what we’re about, and a shiny new website. Come check out our new look!

Our website isn’t the only thing that’s changed. We’ve been working on some new projects that showcase what we can now offer clients. Check these out for some ideas on how we can help you:

Recently Completed Projects

  • Holiday Promo (promo video/site & excerpts) For the Conversations with God Foundation, we took their existing products and promoted them heavily, making the products themselves the highlight of the content. We also created custom excerpts and product images for each product to make them stand out more, built some special packages for the holidays and promoted them in a mini-site format.
  • Rasta Dogs (music video) The video is an artistic and visual experiment, of what can be done with greenscreen and still images. We have used this video to take our abilities to a new level.
  • The Barn Dance (book) Book cover design & interior layout for James Twyman’s new book, to be released through Hay House. The barn image was heavily modified to make it look mystical & filled with light… the original image can be found here.

  • We’re hitting video hard this year. We’ve been growing our video department and can now build pretty much anything… promo videos, book trailers, movie trailers, music videos, inspirational shorts, viral videos, excerpts, interviews, & more. Check out our Video Portfolio for some past examples.
  • When it comes to web design, less is more! The biggest thing in web design right now is mini-sites. 1 or 2-page sites that act as a Sales page for your new book, ecourse, or whatever. This is a custom-designed page that catches people’s eye, and is much less expensive than re-designing your main website to fit your newest product. Check out our web portfolio for past examples, & remember that whatever your web design needs, we can meet them.

How video is changing the world

Hi, I’m Jason Engel.

I’ve never done a blog before so bear with me.

Video is becoming more and more apparent on the web. Not just on Youtube but on websites as well.

What I thought I’d do with this blog is talk about some of the ways we’ve helped people share their vision with the world through video.

Video is a living, changing & breathing (ok, maybe not breathing) thing. It can inform & inspire, Bring out emotion in people: Joy, peace, sorrow, compassion, love & healing. Make them think or motivate them; the list goes on and on. But the most important thing I believe is it can give your idea, your vision… life. It allows people to see your vision, hear it and interact with it on a personal level. It allows people to experience it in a way that’s more engaging than just reading about it.

We live in a very visual world and time. I’ve noticed that people pay more attention to what they see and hear than what they read. It’s a very fast-paced world and a lot of people don’t take the time to read something if they’re not incredibly motivated to do so. And video seems to help with that, it allows you to get your words or message across in a way that’s stimulating and intriguing. I also find that it paints a much clearer picture of what you’re trying to put out there.

The place where video is most prominent right now is on the web. That’s where most people view their media, get their information and share their views. Over the past few years the industry has really grown in terms of what we can do with video on the web. Video can be used for all kinds of purposes on a website, such as Video Introductions, Virtual Walkthroughs, Promotional video clips of yourself or Products, Inspirational Video messages, Teaching Tools & Video to go along with your online courses. There’s almost nothing that you can’t do with video nowadays. I’ll be going into each one of these examples in greater detail as these blogs progress.

Well I think I’m going to cut this blog short before I run out of things to say, lol. But do keep checking back here for more updates.

Blessings,
Jason

Saving the planet, & other tips

If you are reading this, then you are looking at the first ever post from me on a blog, ever.

Amazing, right? I’d sign this if I could, because it may be worth something someday… but that’s the problem with the Internet, nothing’s permanent. The Internet is a fluid and ever-changing landscape. It’s really the closest we’ve come to a shared experience of a world that can change style, mood & purpose at something approaching the speed of thought. New products and experiences come and go much faster on the web than in RL (real life). Games, movies, books, news & entertainment… all of it’s available now, online, almost everything you can think of. And if it’s not up here yet, it will be soon. There’s much more to this thing we call the Internet, of course, but I won’t get into it now.

The point is, it’s a landscape that changes rapidly. It’s very hard to stay ahead of an industry that’s as fluid as this one, but maybe we can lend a hand in that area. We’re a small company of individuals with a common purpose… to help people get their messages out into the ether(net)…to help people achieve their dreams, and to help people, in effect, help other people. Saving the world, or assisting it to save itself. Lofty goal… of course, we wouldn’t mind paying our bills along the way. So, to get our bills paid, we work on projects we believe in. we help people get their messages out there. And because we care about the projects we work on, we offer this monthly blog, to aid you in marketing yourself better, and so that you can learn more about your chosen industry and how to cater to it and design for it effectively. We may even be shooting ourselves in the foot by telling you things that you would normally pay us to advise you on, but really, us helping you helps us in the long run anyway. In this blog you’ll find tips & tricks, tutorials & suggestions for all things media-related. We’ll tell you about new technologies & how to make the best of current ones. In short, we’re helping you help yourself.

As we continue to evolve, and as you evolve, this blog may change, but for now, think of it as a tool for making the ways that you market yourself and what you do even better, regardless of whether you go through us or someone else to implement them.

Good luck on your journey, and check back here periodically for new updates and information.

Also, if you feel inclined, print this post out and I’ll sign it for you. Like I said, it could be worth something someday, as the first post from a company that helped change the world, because of the people who’s messages & dreams we’ve assisted in being birthed into reality… that’s the goal, anyway. Think we can do it?

I do.
