Back in November, we had the pleasure of being the media sponsor for the Kelsey Group's ILM:08 (Interactive Local Media) conference. One of the highlights of that conference was the panel session titled, "SuperForum II: Local Video Explosion." Brad Inman, the Founder and chairman of TurnHere gave an excellent keynote presentation where he presented and discussed "25 things that TurnHere has learned" about local video production and video marketing for small and medium sized businesses.
We caught up with Brad Inman outside of the session for a quick interview. Brad talks to us about the genesis of TurnHere, their recent launch of custom voice-over capabilities, the importance of optimization when it comes to the future of online video marketing for SMBs, and what is in store for the future of TurnHere.
Finally, Brad provides some solid tips for filmmakers that are either interested in becoming a part of the TurnHere filmmaker network or are looking to become more actively involved:
"Sign up, get in the network, send us your reel… I encourage our filmmakers that are not getting work, or are not getting assignments – dont be afraid to call us and bug us, cause all we need is one good experience with a filmmaker, if they are reliable, trustworthy, good shots, good sound, they deliver on time, they will get more work."
"Two things," Brad says, "must be creative and must be responsible…. If they have that together, we love to send them checks."
Thanks to Brad for taking the time to speak with us at ReelSEO ;-)
We also would like to thank our friends over at VideoAgency who were kind enough to provide us with a filmmaker for this event.
