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.... YouTube - welletraumer's Channel
