Ok so, not only am I a crazy horse girl, but also a bit of a computer nerd too. I love playing with imovie on my mac....and when I get to combine my mac and horsieness I am in heaven.
When I sold my gelding last fall I got many comments on his sales video. It's nothing special, but not bad. More recently I have been making videos for friends' horses that are also for sale.
What I would really love to do is have a small side-business making sales videos for people. I don't think just having nice pictures and a well-worded ad are always enough in this tough economy.
Here are my questions:
If you couldn't make one for yourself, how much would you pay for a sales video?
Owners have the best footage sometimes, and lots of it. But if they don't should I offer an extra service of taking HD video on my camera for the video? I know this opens a whole other can of worms....
Should I make a checklist for the owners to fill out when working on their video? (ie. Slow motion, still pictures, pedigree, gaits, jumping, etc)
Does this sound like a crazy idea?
Here's one I made for a friend for an example. I know its not perfect, or like something some of the giant stables might have....
