Back in 2007, when Open2View.com was starting to expand into the US, I had lunch with the head of Open2View and he pointed out this video and told me about Brett Clements who shot the video and won the Australian award for best property video in 2008.
As long time readers know, over the years, I've followed Brett, his work, and his company PlatinumHD.tv. A long time ago, I came to the conclusion that this is the best property video I've seen. After 10 years, I haven't changed my mind. This is Hollywood level equipment, production, and editing quality (Brett worked in Hollywood for a number of years). This video cost roughly $8,800 to produce. Not in your average Realtor's advertising budget but hey, we are not talking your average starter home here. This is being used to market the whole building; not just the penthouse in this video so a few thousand dollars for a knock-out video is not that unreasonable.
The other amazing thing about this video is the lady in it! She is not a professional model; she is Kristine Lehmann, whom at the time, was the listing agent for Reflection Tower Two at Coolangatta, QLD. Is this lady talented or what!? Kristine is not your average listing agent when it comes to being on camera and talking about the property!
Since I first posted this video back in 2008, an amazing number of readers who shoot video have told me that Brett's work and this video in particular have been a major inspiration for their work.
