Join our September workshops!

It’s nice to be back at the cafe. I admit I’ve been lax in posting, but I have a good excuse. I’ve been busy finalizing plans for two exciting video biography events in September. I hope you’ll join in the fun!

So, what’s been keeping you from getting a jump on that family history video project of yours? Not sure where or how to start? Maybe the technology, from cameras to computers, is too intimidating?

Or, maybe you’re already a video guru and you’ve been wondering how to run your own video biography business?

Has Family Legacy Video got the workshops for you!

This September, in Tucson, Arizona, Family Legacy Video offers two unique workshop events:

Create Your Own Video Biography (September 23-25)
Family Legacy Video’s president, Steve Pender, and the dynamic production duo of Dan Crapsi and Ginny Temple usher you through the process of creating your own family legacy video. You’ll learn what makes a successful video tick and get hands-on practice composing questions, lighting and taping interviews, shooting family photos, and getting the video onto your computer. You’ll also edit that video and walk away with your own, three-minute long “mini” video biography.

The Business of Video Biographies (September 26) – If you’re thinking of opening your own video biography business, this one-day workshop is just the ticket. Steve Pender (Steve was recently featured in the Arizona Daily Star and EventDV Magazine) offers tips, advice and insights into the business. You’ll learn what you should expect to need and pay when it comes to equipment, insurance, and music. Marketing and promotion also take center stage as Steve shares his promotion strategies and tells you what’s worked for him and what hasn’t. Graphic designer and marketing expert Dan Blumenthal (Blumenthal Design Group, LLC) will discuss the importance of graphic design in creating an image and brand for your company and how they can add to your bottom line.
