So, I made a "client testimonial" video for myself to pair along side my "reel video". I don't know if it will be effective, but I moved to a new town and I'm trying to establish new clients, so I'm trying some different marketing strategies. Plus I figured I've helped make tons of these types of videos for all kinds of companies, and if I work in an industry that believes in the value of that type of marketing, why wouldn't there be value in making one for myself? Plus, it was a valuable experience doing all this myself - lighting, camera, sound, conducting the interviews, and editing. Obviously it's not perfect, but it was a good exercise. (Two Canon 5D mkii cameras for those who are curious about what I shot it on.) A million "Thank you!"s to the people who participated and agreed to appear in the video.
