To show support for Red Shoes Black Productions, I filmed footage of their latest concert, “The Disco Ball”, where Letizia and the Z Band with three guest vocalists do covers of many classic disco songs from the 1970’s.
Their musical events help benefit not-for-profit organization, “Serenity For Women”, an organization that builds small homes for homeless returning female Veterans.
Hi, everybody! I recently finished editing a series of videos for a Matrimonial and Family Law lawyer at Melvin & Melvin named Joe Morawski. The shoot went very well, and we got four good videos that Melvin will start using soon in social media. Here’s a link to one of the videos:
I am very grateful to Melvin & Melvin for the opportunity to continue to shoot videos for the firm. I also appreciate how much I’m learning about how to handle video subjects to get them to relax, to get them to project and emote, and not make them too nervous while you are filming. Practice makes perfect!
Back in November, I filmed a benefit concert for Vera House, a non-profit organization that helps victims of domestic violence here in Central New York. The concert was promoted by Red Shoes Black Bag Productions and my friend, Joanna Jewett.
I’m really proud to have helped this great cause, show off the talents of these amazing women and to have had the opportunity to share their concert with you.
I have recently posted a video I created for Arc of Onondaga. It is a Holiday-themed video that shows their individuals making holiday cards and sharing the joy of the season. Happy Holidays to you and your families! Have a joyous New Year!
I am an avid user of social media, and have over 1500 followers on my YouTube personal page. I am also active on Twitter and Facebook for my business, JVR Productions. So I figured it was about time that I set up a page on LinkedIn, too. Here’s the link:
So please by stop and check out my experience. If I have worked with you before, I would be very grateful if you would provide me with a review of how I did working for you.
Thanks very much, and I want to let you know that I am now looking for an entry-level position doing video production and social media communications beginning in January. Thank you in advance for any leads or referrals!
Hi, folks! I just finished up my latest video for Arc of Onondaga.
We filmed the recent event sponsored by Dunkin Donuts. Over 2,000 people attended, with nearly 1,000 people running to help raise money for programs to assist disabled people in our community. The highlight of the event was the partner runs, where runners pushed disabled people in 3 wheeled strollers to make them part of the race.
Two local radio personalities, Amy Robbins of 93Q and Dave Frisina of 105 FM – The Rebel, both provided their talents in doing the voice over for the video. My boss Joanna Jewett will be using it as a fundraising tool for this wonderful organization. Please check out the video, linked below, and make a donation to Arc of Onondaga. Thank you!
So, I was working on a new project, and I discovered to my horror afterwards that my fancy boom microphone had failed on a recent shoot! OMG, I was devastated, on the verge of tears. There was no audio of four hours of footage!
Then, I talked to my client and a friend who helps me on my projects, and I realized, “Hey, I can do this with a voice over.” My client said they’ve never had anyone shoot this event before, and listening to people talk can be pretty boring anyway.
So I’m going to work up a script and cut it shorter than I originally intended. And now I found out that my client is approaching a couple local radio personalities who were at the event to lend a hand with the voice over!
And so suddenly, there’s lemonade!
(And, no, Beyonce, we weren’t talking about you ….) LOL
It’s all about learning from your mistakes. So next time, I will be sure to check the battery in my boom mic, and check the indicator light on the top to make sure that it’s working properly. Lesson learned. On to the next one!
