By Bonnie Durkin
Bonnie Durkin, frequent WEVA seminar speaker, and President of D-Vision Video has been creating videos for High School events since 1987. A former teacher, Bonnie has developed a strategy for producing and marketing school videos in a sure-fire way to increase an event videographer’s income. In Capturing the School Market, Bonnie reveals how you can create an on-going profit center from nearby schools year after year.
- A full-length DVD of one of her famous “Memories of the Class of 2004″ projects.
- Instructional CD loaded with invaluable information on how to market and produce these very lucrative projects
Learn from Bonnie the strategy that has brought in more than $8600 from tapes she sold to just ONE school! Rather than just document an event, she creates project themes around the emotions and personal experiences of students. One of the keys to her success is to keep it simple. Unlike wedding videos there is no black and white footage or other special effects. Her reason is not just to simplify the post production, but she’s learned this is really what parents and kids want. She tapes 5 – 7 schools a year and makes more doing these videos than she makes doing weddings! Bonnie explains her profit formula you can repeat year after year.
A former teacher with 23 years experience, Bonnie shows you the right way to deal with the kids. How to think about their culture, language, styles and music. This is more important to your success than people think.
You’ll also learn about the profit picture for shooting Plays and Concerts. Two camera, live switching is simply not profitable for most school productions. In addition you’ll learn which types of plays you should avoid because they are not profitable either. Bonnie shows you how to avoid those money-losing, marginal operations. She’ll show you what really works and how you can copy her success.
