It features interviews with the co-founders of Empire Avenue and prominent members of Empire Avenue.
The interview series culminated in the production of a Short Film called Stories from the Avenue.
Of significant note is the use of YouTube Annotations that link the Short Film to select Full Interviews. This technique allows for the creation of a menu system on YouTube that brings together a complete collection of videos. The use of annotations is a growing tactic within the development of YouTube-based campaigns.
Some nights, you decide to try something to prove to yourself you can do it. Other nights, you decide to try something to see what kind of problems you will run into. On both nights, the outcome is the same, you attempt the new so that you can learn something new.
In this test video you can see the end result of a multi-slide keynote which is then mapped onto an iMovie project.
Why is this so important? Keynote has amazing object transition effects as well as slide transition effects right out of the box. By creating an alpha animation in keynote, you can bypass the limitations of the title options available in iMovie and create some pretty amazing videos.
What to see the real end result of this work? Stay tuned.
UPDATE: This is a good reference to achieve the above. Although I do it slightly different, this technique works. http://www.sondette.com/public/blog/?p=402
Per their website, Magisto asks the question…
Isn’t video editing
too complicated and time-consuming?
In video editing, there are various degrees of work involved in producing edited video. To think that a single tool could replace the professional video editor is a fallacy. However, there are many video edits that should not require the expertise of a video production team. This is where Magisto can really shine with their cloud-based platform.
I first heard about Magisto on September 20, 2011. Mashable announced that Magisto had “raised $5.5 million in a Series B round of financing.” My initial Magisto discovery process was logged in the following @RLavigne42 Tweet Round-Up entry.
I saw plenty of opportunities for a cloud-based tool such as Magisto.
It was obvious to me that I needed to become familiar with Magisto further.
So I decided to take Magisto on vacation with me to New York and Pennsylvania, USA.
As part of the pre-collaboration process, I posted at the BRANTS Brantford Entrepreneurs community that I would be entertaining questions prior to the event.
Laurie Allan Coates took up the challenge by asking the following question.
Here’s a question to Robert Lavigne for the upcoming social business workshop.
How would the utilization of social media vary depending on the business?
- a bricks & mortar retail shop
- an independent business consultant
- a small manufacturer
Around the same time, Walter Da Costa, Owner at Professional Carpet Systems Brant, posted a link to his Hamilton Carpet Clean YouTube Video.
So without, further adieu, let me partially answer Laurie’s question using the Hamilton Carpet Clean YouTube Channel as an example.
In the upcoming blog entry, I will answer the question.
