Locally, I am currently the Program Director for the http://www.npva.org/ of New England. Simply put, this means I am the go-to person to find current trends in the wedding industry that relate directly to local videographers!
This past month, we brought in 2 national award winning videographers! Kris Malandruccolo of http://www.elegantvideosbykris.com/. Kris is from Chigago and spoke to our group about how we can better market ourselves to YOU, the bride! She was eloquent and thorough! We loved having her! (Her flight was not until 6pm next day- so I got to take Kris on a tour of Boston... we did about 1/2 of the Freedom Trail... we got to Quincy Market - had lunch and headed back before the rain hit us! )
We also hosted Steve Folwer of http://www.thevideoexperts.com/ Steve is a great friend and college of mine! We have done a few jobs with and for each other! Steve is a national award winning videographer too! His seminar was called "Shoot Ta Thrill" and has an edgy AC/DC rockin' feel to it - which makes his seminar both entertaining AND informative!
The http://www.npva.org/ also hosted it's annual Vista Awards at Stonehill College this year. You can read the article WEVA posted here! ( there is a cute pic of me, too!)
All in all it has been a busy week. Currently, we are finishing up 2 weddings from last year, (keep an eye for the highlights here!) and, having brought on another associate, we are right on target with this years productions! We are also working on Jessica's DVD invitations (posting the video link in a few days!) and just completed a life journal photo montage for Pillsbury Funeral Home.
We are looking forward to YOUR adventure soon, too!
