How about a “This Is Your Life” tribute video? A narrated piece, complete with interviews that captures the highlights of a loved one’s life. Pictures, video clips, sound-bites. What a great gift!
Anyone can buy a camera and shoot a cheap little video with a lot of quick edits and techno music–but they don’t know how to write, narrate and tell your story. Anyone can hang a public relations sign outside their door, but they haven’t spent a lifetime IN the media, knowing how stories are chosen.
For video production, media training, crisis communication, public speaking, freelance or freelance writing, or a ‘This Is Your Life’ tribute, contact Ray Collins today.
