VMNP 002 - Turning Big News Events Into Your Next Video

We reveal our very latest nonprofit video | Meet my wife and co-conspirator, Michele | Michele really hates being in the limelight (but I think she's pretty amazing) | Making a nonprofit video that ties into current (big) news events | Idea: Send a press release when you publish video | How did we make the video? | Video making tools and tips for every budget, even if you just have a smart phone | How to tell whether you might have a great video idea | Our dog Tater makes a cameo (it was just a matter of time before something like this would happen)

Video Resources discussed during the show:

Heavy duty support system (for a background)

Westcott "Storm Cloud" backdrop that we used in the video

"Fighting for You" song from is where the music in the piece came from

Pond 5 is a very inexpensive royalty-free music option for video

We also like to use Audio Jungle for music on a budget

Here is the video we just completed for Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization in Portland, OR:
