Videos is an incredibly powerful tool to promote presenters and speakers; nothing will provide more compelling evidence of what you have to offer. Still a lot of websites of keynote speakers have no, or really bad video. We think the reason for that is twofold: – video is too expensive. – video of presentations often misses the magic that live presentations offer.
One of the reasons a lot of speaker sites lack video is that video of conference often don’t have the same impact as being at the presentation; the lighting is weird, the camera angle not quite right and overall the video just doesn’t connect. Here’s an example of a speaker who’s actually pretty good, but the video is just not that convincing:
At HWP we’re running a pilot for a new Speaker Showreel Package which will create beautiful, TED like presentations that will help you stand out from the crowd. Here’s what a well produced speaker video looks like: http://vimeo.com/32976928 A good speaker showreel needs to be recorded with great lighting, a slick background and at least three cameras; this is why video from most conference (except the top ones like TED) don’t offer compelling video of presentations; it’s simply too expensive.
We’re launching the speaker packages product early next year, but would like to create a number of pilot videos so we can use them as case studies. We create a great looking speaker package for 3 keynote speakers. We’re looking for ambitious people with experience and great IP. What we offer is a package that would cost between $ 1500-2000 at cost price. This offer is limited to 3 people only and offers a great opportunity to finally get that video that shows what you can offer; a great opportunity to take your speaking career to the next level.
We want to make sure the shoot is a fun experience and offers the maximum benefit to you, so feel free to invite friends, colleagues, clients and prospects to the event; this is a great networking opportunity!
We recently talked to our friend Nigel Collin, who’s an awesome ‘on camera presenting’ coach, we thought it would be great if we could combine a live presentation for an audience with the controlled environment of a studio. The advantage of this set up is that you have the vibe of a live presentation, but you get the superb results that studios offer.
Another issue is cost; renting a studio with three cameras and operators and lighting is very expensive; a way too big investment for most keynote speakers. This is why we came up with the idea of sharing resources and making part of the evening self funding. – You share the facilities with two or three other speakers, dramatically reducing cost. – You can invite prospective or current clients to the evening, creating a great opportunity to network. – You can sell tickets to partly self fund. Have a look at the video;
Here’s what we offer:
To create some examples for the promotion, we’re offering three speakers the opportunity to get this package at cost price: $ 695,-! The pilot takes place on the 14th and 16th of December at the Hunting With Pixels HQ, level 1, 270 King Street. This is a one off, after that you pay the full whack! So get in touch now!
