Our friend Bob Krist has just won awards for the videos he made for Visit Bucks County. You may know Bob from his work for National Geographic, but Bob is a seasoned travel VJ and can expose the heart of any location through video.
Bob says that he and Ryan are working on 6 more videos and each one highlights a local resident and tells their interesting story. We believe that this is the best way to make a travel video -- or any video for that matter. People like stories about people, and as such find videos that center around a character more interesting and compelling.
Another takeaway from this great news for Bob is the many clients that are out there for you as a travel VJ -- or any kind of video producer for that matter. People think the only way to get paid to make video is from the big companies like news outlets, magazines and TV channels; when in reality, almost every company, every non-profit, and pretty much every entity out there needs video. In this case we have a local tourism board and this is a great place to look for work.
