Hello! I’m Jody, and I LOVE MAKING VIDEOS!
From playing with oversized VHS cameras as a child to using today’s cutting-edge production and animation tools, I am constantly dreaming up new exciting ways to use the power of video.
I work primarily with entrepreneurs and business owners, and occasionally with Hollywood (Warner Brothers), Silicon Valley (Intel), and the recording industry (Megadeth and EMI Records).
Do you have a video idea? Here are some things to keep in mind:
- A pretty video is worthless if the script fails to connect with the viewer emotionally.
- Consider what each viewer actually wants before delivering any message.
- Give people useful information in every video, and make every video fun to watch!
