Un-box our new videography package!

Un-box our new videography package!

Your brand is telling a story. Videography is a compelling way to concisely and creatively showcase what you do, who you are and how you do your thing. Advokate just hired Caitlin (me) of Snarky Aardvark Films and is now expanding into the world of videography. Capture the essence of your business through a filmmaker’s eye.

We want to tell your story!

We now offer a variety of different options that are customizable to best meet your needs and budget. Need a quick iPhone video for social media? We’re here for you. Need a fully branded ten minute, scripted short film with audio/lighting design? We can do that too.  For our first roll-out of videography packages we decided to focus on the iPhone X. This phone’s capabilities rivals that of DSLR’s in video quality (depth of field included) with the versatility and ease of a phone. We want your videos to be shareable and blog-worthy. People will use their phones to watch your content so the best way to create it is on a phone.

Check out this short piece of shareable cinema we created for Finders Keepers Consignments:

Creating a video can be an effective way to increase team building. Everyone can rally to brainstorm ideas and work together in narrowing down the most efficient way to communicate your brand to your target demographic. The process stretches creative muscles which can ignite new ideas and approaches to speak directly to your ideal client. Also, it’s fun!

Benefits of including video on your website:

  • Content that is shareable cross-platform
  • Show what you do and why it matters instead of just telling people
  • Create memorable content that will stick with people and keep them checking in
  • Connect with your clients and community on a more personal level that resonates with them
  • SEO. Video inclusion benefits your inbound marketing strategy
  • You may go viral!
