2013 Quarter 1, Done! What’s Next?

Canon 5D Mark III

We were pretty busy this last quarter and some of the work is trickling into this quarter. One thing we can definitely check off our “to do” list is new equipment purchase. Canon 5D Mark III. Yes, there was a lot of talk about the Panasonic Lumix, but we decided to go with the Mark III instead and are very pleased. We also got the 85 mm lens and a wide angle lens which will bump up the cinematic quality of our work. With this new equipment we’re able to offer more stunning images for music videos, weddings, movies, you name it. Very pleased!

everyday focus

New apparel and clothing line “Everyday Focus” finally is coming to fruition. The logo is not quite complete, but we have the concept down. Once this is done, we’ll launch our Triple M Designz Webstore. You’ll be able to buy directly from our secure website. We’ll most likely start with t-shirts and hoodies, but won’t limit it to just clothing. Good stuff. Of course, schwag too because we gotta give back to the people who have been supporting us.

We are very happy with our progress this year. We’ll keep you all posted with upcoming projects. Thanks for all the support!

We’re listening! Give us your feedback

In today’s competitive world there are so many ways to get our name out there and earn new business. With all these different ways to market, sometimes we lose sight of what’s important to us, our existing clients. We want you to come back again and again and again. Although getting new clients is a very crucial part of our growth, it is similarly crucial for us to keep, you. Like any relationship you have to continue to give to receive. And, like any relationship, this courtship is not over, we have to earn your loyalty and win you over every time. Otherwise, you can easily go to “the other guy”. We can’t have that now, can we?

So tell us. We want your feedback.

  • What are we doing that’s working?
  • Is there anything we can improve upon?
  • Is there something that we should be doing that we’re currently not?

You do not need to be an existing client to give feedback. Any feedback is welcome.

Top 5 things to consider when choosing your videographer

When a video is needed, before even considering a videographer, you have to know what type of video you want. That’s the starting point. There are different requirements for different types of videos like weddings, music videos, special events, and commercials, but they all have the same underlying factors. Now, here are the top 5 things to consider when choosing your videographer for any type of video. (These are not in any particular order)

1. Style

Most videographers will be able to describe their style to you, but always see for yourself. Be sure to watch some of their previous work. Look at what they’ve done in the past. Best thing is to see their most current work, as styles may have changed or evolved. Make sure you like what you see. It’s easier to go with someone with your own style and taste rather than having them change to fit you. Choose the path of least resistance.

2. Equipment

Equipment is key when it comes to being able to capture high quality video. Without the right equipment you can only count on the talents of the videographer. They can be great videographers but without the right equipment, they can only do so much. A quality camera will capture quality video. If your video requires audio, a low grade microphone just won’t cut it. You can manipulate video to make it better, but poor audio is simply poor audio. Additional lighting is needed if you’re not filming outside in the daylight, otherwise your video will be dark, gloomy and grainy. With everything pretty much captured in HD it’s important to have all aspects of your video on the same level.

3. Cost

Cost is usually the first to be considered but shouldn’t always be your primary reason, however it is important. The statement “you get what you pay for” is true most of the time, but not all of the time. Industry standards right now is around the $150 per hour rate. This is a good benchmark to budget for a video but most videographers will quote a package price or fee based on the project type, since they should know relatively how much time they spend on each. Just because their prices are lower doesn’t mean they’re bad. Just because they charge an arm and a leg doesn’t mean they are any good. You’ll have to find a middle ground based on industry standards and what you’re willing to pay. Remember, there are many videographers to choose from and it never hurts to ask for a better price.

4. Personality

You’re going to have to deal with this person or team of people for the duration of your video shoot. Be sure they are “compatible” with you, otherwise it’ll be a struggle if you’re always butting heads.

5. Experience

You’ll want someone that has experience because… practice only makes perfect. Get someone who knows what they’re doing. Their experience will determine the time spent (or wasted) preparing, filming and editing your video. You really don’t want someone “learning on the job” at your wedding. Nor do you want someone experimenting techniques for the first time. Although it never hurts to give the “up and comers” a chance at your business, it’s always a good ideas to ask for references and ask to see credentials if they are fresh out of school. Just be sure to at least know what they can do before agreeing to anything.

Trying out Google AdWords and Facebook Ads

“You gotta spend money to make money” they say. So why not spend FREE money. We recently received credits toward Google AdWords and Facebook Ads. Why not use it, right? The cynic in me says this is how they reel you in by giving you free stuff but I’ll have to admit… free works. With marketing and advertising you’re pretty much rolling the dice. It’s all trial and error and you hope you’re spending your hard earned dollars wisely. That’s what we’re doing. We haven’t been using Google AdWords long enough to see how successful it will be for us, but Facebook Ads is working so far. We’ll give it another week or so, see how it pans out.

What’s your experience with Google AdWords and Facebook Ads? Is it worth the money to spend on AdWords and does “Likes” on Facebook really get you anything? What has worked for your business? Leave a comment an tell us your thoughts.


Music for My Ears, Young Gee

Almost one year ago we filmed Young Gee’s music video “Girl this is your song”. This video received over 29,000 views on youtube and is continuing to grow. You can add to this number by viewing too, check it out. Although this was not the only video we worked on for Young Gee it was by far one of our favorites to shoot.. and we worked on a lot.

“Young Gee has got to be my favorite right now”, says FreeMind of Black Light Ink Studios. When asked to embellish, FreeMind further explains, “Young Gee’s sound is pretty unique because he has the ability to adjust and blend in different sounds.” He has a big role in helping put San Diego on map and is personally expanding to other cities. His reach goes all the way to the East Coast. We’re happy to have been a part of it all.

Here are some more places you can find Young Gee
