YOUR VIDEO PROGRAM MADE EASY
While not live on my service website, The Root Group, just yet. I'm a self taught videographer, editor and producer who over the last 4 years has produced over 150 videos for myself and my clients, using only the most user-friendly gear.
Curious about what gear to grab for your own, turnkey DIY video set up? Here's Bryce's personal set up that you've seen in all his latest vlogs.
But now, I've taken the 2-hour boot camp action plan I normally offer, and I've made it completely video-specific. We'll review your business, its goals + aspirations, develop a video series concept that embodies your brand and goals, and we'll develop a loose script and story boarding that softly plugs your products and services that keeps viewers captivated, entertained and educated about all that you do. We'll follow that up with determining if the DIY or outsourcing of shooting and editing is best for your situation, and of course we have a program that ensures your video program gets off and running hitch-free. To find out more, just message Bryce by tapping the button below.
