Video Production Company Offers Awful Advice to Attorneys

I came across this website while searching the internet for attorney video production companies that offer useful services. Here's the advice they offer to their attorneys: Using a script, focus on your firm’s expertise and trustworthiness through testimonials and proven results. To successfully deliver your firm’s message, consider using examples and visual cues by showing footage of your firm’s lawyers working on behalf of clients. Demonstrate to your audience that your firm is the best fit for them. You may even want to debunk myths, such as the idea that clients cannot afford your services. Continue reading

Attorney Video: How to Become a Video Distributor

In the ‘old’ days, you would have to upload each video to each individual sharing site. Each site had their own forms, their own format and their own requirements. If you wanted your content on five different video sharing sites, it would easily take over an hour or more to upload just that one video. Every video must be given a title, a description and keywords. Thankfully, the ‘old days’ are gone. There are now programs and services that allow you to upload your video to one place and then that service shoots your video out to multiple sharing sites at once. You still have to optimize each video, but these services allow you the ability to upload once and distribute to many locations. Continue reading

Attorney Video Marketing: How to Become a Video Editor

It's simple really. Start with the most expensive and unintuitive software program on the market (Final Cut Pro) and then spend hundreds of hours figuring out what all those little buttons and dials are for. Seriously. Video editing can be as simple as pressing the 'upload to YouTube' button from your smart phone to the other extreme of using Final Cut Pro and spending years to get really good at it.

He bought the most expensive equipment, the latest video editing software and then realized he had no idea how to edit anything. He bought all these books and classes online to teach him how to do it, and he failed miserably. Continue reading

Attorney Video Marketing: How to Become a Videographer

You've decided to change careers. You don't want to practice law anymore. You think it's more glamorous to shoot video. Ok, I'll admit it, the allure is there. It certainly is tempting. In order to show you how to become a videographer, I need to ask you some questions first: When was the last time you took video of anything? Maybe you shot video of Thanksgiving at your house with all your relatives. Maybe you were on the soccer field taking video of your six-year-old. Maybe you were at the aquarium with the dolphins. At least you have some level of experience. Continue reading

During the videotaping, you would stop and correct us when we needed correcting. During the videotaping, you let us go along on topics that you felt were interesting that may not be direct to the point but would capture our audience. When we were shy a topic, you threw one out at us. When we needed to be given direction, you gave us that direction.
