Quick Overview:
Combining multiple heart-felt interviews over multiple locations is always a little bit tougher when it comes to logistics and planning, but, WOW, what a difference it makes in the final video! Combining true customer testimonials plus business owner interviews is a great way to tell your story, while reinforcing what the owner is saying with social proof from real life clients.

We really enjoyed filming this business promotional video with Clay and we really got to enjoy the beauty that surrounds us here in Pawleys Island South Carolina. Mad Ladder Studios is privelaged to call this place home and we love capturing our area on film! One of our coolest aspects of this shoot was definitely filming from a second boat for many of the Winyah Bay shots. We were following the beautiful Sportsman boat in a Sea Ark Aluminum boat, which presented some challenges and exhilarting shots.

Equipment Used on this Shoot:

  • Sony FS700
  • Sony FS7
  • DJI Inspire
  • Sony A7s2

But don’t forget… the making of a video doesn’t ensure success. Creating a video is really on half the battle. The second half of the battle is creating a proper sales and/or lead funnel to monetize your new investment.

You need to think of creating a landing page, a proper sales funnel, and also ad campaigns across Google Adwords and social media platforms facebook, instagram, and snapchat. What happens next? You start to see a return on your investment!
