ServicesCommunity Coverage

Our Community Coverage delivers the Sights and Sounds of Neighborhood News through video reporting. We like to think of our community coverage as “citizen news” that is overlooked by larger media outlets.

We work collaboratively with our local print media partners to cover stories with wide community appeal. Our video stories are then incorporated into print stories through quick reference (QR) scan codes.  These QR codes can be scanned with a scanner app on a smartphone or tablet (free app must be installed), allowing our video story to be accessed directly from the newspaper.  Pretty cool!

Optionally, we can provide a written story that compliments our video story.

Video community coverage stories are about two minutes long.  We view these videos as “mini movies” designed to be entertaining as well as informative. A fully licensed soundtrack is included as well as voiceover narration.

The video stories are “people oriented,” capturing the action of an event as seen through the eyes of our neighbors and their children. Interviews with the event organizers, sponsors and volunteers are included so their voices can be directly heard.

Unless other arrangements have been made, we post our community coverage videos on our Studio205.tv YouTube channel. We are happy to provide the YouTube URL to the sponsoring organization and their partners so they may display the video story on their website or social media platforms.

Prior to filming a story, we contact event sponsors to coordinate shooting locations, confirm access to people we would like to interview, and gather event background information.

Event sponsors are encouraged to contact us as early as possible so we can include in our story package a “promo” video to assist in the advertising of an event.

Commercial Services

Our Commercial Service is a full-service “concept to distribution” offering for the creation of municipality, corporate, training and promotional videos as well as web-based advertisements.

We will assist you step by step in transforming your ideas into a compelling video. You have access to our libraries of licensed still images, video clips, music and sound effects to raise the engagement level your video.

If you would like to tell your story in your voice, we will ensure your spoken words are perfectly blended with video images and sound. It’s actually a bit trickier than you think!  We can also provide voiceover services as well.

Hosting

For videos that project your brand, we recommend hosting options other than YouTube. YouTube offers great advantages in video hosting and streaming, and it’s free. However, your video may be subject to overlays of Google TrueView advertisements (skip this ad in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1).

We can review video hosting options that are “commercial free.”

Commercials

If you need a video commercial, we will provide all the services noted above as well as services for integrating video commercials into your print, magazine or newspaper ads through quick reference (QR) scan codes.

But that’s not all . . .

We can show you how to include a call to action in your video commercial so customers will contact YOU!

For straight forward, see-scan-buy services such as theatre tickets, home services or consumer goods, we will create:

  • A short 15 – 20 second video to “close the deal” on your goods or services.
  • A call to action (e.g., click on this link) that will redirect customers directly to your website where they can immediately purchase your services or goods.

For more complex services such as medical procedures, legal services, financial services or large home purchases, we will create:

  • A 30 – 60 second reassuring video message that allows you to speak directly to a potential customer or lets them hear testimonials from a satisfied customer.
  • A call to action (e.g., enter your email here) embedded in the video that allows interested customers to self-identify.

Our video email capture integrates with email services such as MailChimp and Campaign Monitor.

This video email capture feature enables you to send an email coupon directly to motivated customers with an “irresistible” offer they cannot refuse. An example might be, “Come in for a free 30 minute consultation, a $125 value.”

Interested? Then contact us and we’ll send you a coupon for a 20% discount on our first project together.

Feature Films

We also produce feature films (5 – 20 minutes) that provide in-depth commentary on topics impacting our communities (e.g., Milton County – Is there a Decision?) or are documentary in nature.

Contact us if you have ideas you would like to see turned into a video story.
