Heath Cowart sent me a couple of videos that he created for promoting his real estate video business:
I think is is worth noting the great job that Heath has done with the design of his website. I like how the design of it shows off so many of his videos.
He uses Vimeo for all the video on his website but still posts a bunch of videos on his YouTube channel which is important for getting exposure. And he has a link from his YouTube channel to his website. I can’t believe how many people don’t put a link to their website on their YouTube channel. I would suggest that you also put a your clients website URL and your own website URL in the YouTube description field like Fred Light does. Fred also puts description text about the property in the YouTube description field. After all YouTube is the second biggest search engine on the planet so might as well make use of it.
Magic Lantern HDR Workflow: Mike Turner and Jason Jacques both pointed out this tutorial to me and wondered if I knew of anyone that was using HDR video. I don’t. Does anyone using Magic lantern or HDR video?
I’m skeptical that this approach would be worth the huge amount of extra work it entails. I would be inclined to just shoot a twilight for a very similar look.
What do others think about this approach?
