Christine Bickley has been shooting for her husband Graham for several years. Graham is an Estate Agent in Cleveland. That’s the Cleveland that is just south of Brisbane in Australia, not the one on Lake Erie.
Christine sent me one of her recent videos to share with you. A couple of things caught my attention:
- The first is the nice job that she did with the Google Earth fly-in. This kind of fly-in is always a nice touch to orient the viewers where the property is. My only complaint would be that during the last part of the fly-in it goes so fast that I can’t pickup exactly where on the Queensland coast Raby Bay is. Not a big deal, I just wish it moved slower.
- The second feature I noticed about this video is that Christine judiciously uses stills mixed with video sequences for some parts of the video. Some video purists complain about this, but I think she has done it pretty well. Frequently with interiors, it is very difficult to tell the difference between a panned over still and a panning video shot. I think the only place in Christine’s video where I’d rather see video than stills is the evening shots of the boardwalk pub shots.
Feel free to give Christine feedback on her property video.
