Few things in life are as effective as media marketing for promotional purposes. This is particularly true for entertainers who often rely on media to help visually demonstrate their value to prospective promoters or booking agents. Although word-of-mouth advertising does help, having the ability to show oneself in action will always be far more effective.
So when Shari Ellingson of Gator Alley & Company approached us looking for a promotional video of her entertainment act centered around children's ministry, we figured the best way to showcase her talent was to film her in action as she touched the lives of young children.
A local event at Abundant Life Church, Oconomowoc, WI, on September 8, 2013 provided the opportunity to do just that. So with gear in tow, we showed up and filmed this ventriloquist and her family do their thing, entertaining young and old alike.
After filming the entire service, we had Ms. Ellingson stop by to provide a bit of commentary to help fill out her mission for those unfamiliar with her story. What emerged from post production is a readily distributable (across all forms of web and social media platforms) digital asset that accurately presents this entertainer's core values and character.
