Viewers Choice Video #2: how we make videos; tips and learnings

by on June 21, 2011

As part of our first Viewers Choice Video Contest, Sue from New Jersey requested a video about how we make Jordan Winery videos, from selecting locations and topics to advice on lighting and editing. In these two videos, Laura Petersen and I reflect on how much we’ve learned about video production over the past 18 months–and the mistakes that have helped us grow. Though the final videos are fairly short, we did record an extensive interview about the importance of audio and other tips. So, if you’d like us to post the extended version of these videos, please let us know.

Thanks again to Sue for the suggested video topic.

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for this video. It’s pretty inspiring and man am I jealous of your choice of locations and back drops. I need an ivy covered wall!

    Hi Sue,
    Glad you like it. We decided not to give away all the secrets, but let us know if you want to see the audio interview. We recorded about 12 minutes of tips and stories in my interview alone.

    Nice Video Lisa, I especially like the comparison to an “Artist colony” We really do have a great team here!
