The video you are watching above was shot, scripted, edited and produced by Martin Grey.

Martin Grey is the Head of Media and Public Affairs at Viridor, a recycling, renewable energy and waste management company in the UK. 

It was Martin's first video (second actually, his first was pretty good also!).  Martin was a participant at our 4-day intensive video training bootcamp in London last week.

Prior to the bootcamp, he had never shot video (let alone edited) in his life.  Also, as the head of Media and Public Affairs of one of Britain's largest companies (FTSE 250), he was used to hiriing 'professional crews' to produce all his company's video needs. 

I think that will probably change in the future.

I am showing you this to show you what is possible. All you need do (as I explain every time) is just do exactly what I tell you to do.

And this is but Martin's first second attempt.  As he goes forward, they are only going to get better. But even now, after 4 days, his is as good as most of the stuff you see on TV or online done by very high priced 'professionals'.

The world of television before cable had been limited to 3 networks and a handful of local TV stations. But the advent of cable meant that suddenly there were 60, 70 soon to be 100 or more new channels. And all of those channels needed content. But where were they going to get it from? A huge market for content had just opened up.

Q: What do TV news and Netflix have in common? A: They both appear on the same screen. They both tell stories.

This morning, I went out early to buy my copy of the weekend FT — a great newspaper, by the way. I was a bit surprised to see that my regular newsstand, on 6th Avenue and 55th Street, had exactly 3 newspapers for sale — one copy of Baron’s and two copies of The New York Post. That was it. No FT, no NY Times, no Washington Post, no… nothing.
