We, the marketing committee had a brain storming session. It started out with some grumbling that we aren't getting impact with our social media campaigns. I pointed out we aren't using them at cross purposes and the MTV generation in particular loves visual/aural stimulation not just 140 characters in a twitter post. I said we need to do more with the YouTube channel we have in place and do something often to keep it fresh and provide fodder for our Instagram, twitter and facebook accounts.
They listened, I with a DSLR that shoots HD video started shooting stuff. Its too much fun putting it all together after we shoot. I'm a noob and luckily Windows MovieMaker is a powerful tool thats stupid easy to use so I get quality results out the door. Better yet, the Playhouse gets media to promote themselves and their productions at no cost other than some time. Time well invested.
