Recycling video content

Recycling video content

Video challenge is about to start…

I am a big believer in recycling. The same comes to video; I am amazed by how businesses spend lots of money on video and never think to reuse the footage or content. Here is a promo video that was made for my book launch and now re-purposed for my video challenge, which starts tomorrow. To recycle this video all I did was edited it shorter by 20 secs, updated the on-screen text, and made an end graphic (it’s a video wall, check it out) and recorded a new voice over.

After all, the common name for a rooster is a cock. Enjoy the best of 2016 and in our best Chinese, Gong Hey Fat Choy!

The sun, the city and Simon

Tallboy’s MD Simon Banks has recently written a book. Called “How to Get Video Right”, the book is intended to as a guide to making video a key part of communications strategy. So as a key part of Simon’s communications strategy, the Tallboy team helped Simon make a promotion video.
