Clare Video Production

At DW Video we offer Clare Video Production Services.

DW Video provides Clare Video Production Services!  Clare is a diverse community that boasts a wonderful place to call home.  One company that calls Clare home is Benchley’s Amish Furniture since 1989.

KLM Productions owner Kathy Murphy, called in DW Video to provide her client from Clare, video production services. This included a number of broadcast commercials and a Buy Local Video Profile.

According to their website: “Benchley’s Amish Furniture & Gifts. Who would guess that just outside of Clare, Michigan, in the heart of  Amish Country, you would find Michigan’s largest selection of Amish made furniture? In this quaint, picturesque, rural setting, you’ll find all that, and more, known as Benchley’s Amish Furniture.”

Our first video shoot we spent a full day capturing video around their 20,000 square foot facility.  The video captured provided us with a years worth of video to create a couple more commercials.  Having the stock video from this shoot allows Kathy to write a script and we then edit.  No extra cost on additional days of shooting.
It was not until about 9 months later we went back to capture video during the Christmas season – the store changes throughout the year. Another trip some time later was to focus on accessories only.  As Kathy came up with new scripts, we needed more specialty video.  At DW Video we work with you and your budget.  We are here to help.  Contact us today to learn more about what we can do for you…. we are here to help.

Thermal Tec uses some of their videos to describe the benefits their roofing system on different types of roofs.

“Thermal-Tec covers millions of foot of standing seam roofs a year. Standing seam roofs are so well engineered that they did not leak for a very long time. As they age, the roofs develop leaks.”  This is what Robert Siterlet, President Thermal Tec, states in one of his video profiles.

In this example we brought Robert into the studio to record his on-camera segment.  To save cost we recorded more than one at a time.  This kept it affordable and also great for Robert and his time schedule.

It was important with this series of video profiles to have Robert cover the benefits his roofing system offers over a number of types or roofs: Metal, Standing Seam, Fiberglass and more.

KJM Productions and DW Video produce series of landscaping videos

KJM Productions and DW Video produce series of landscaping videos for Midland’s Reder Landscaping.  The Landscaping videos are being used on Reder’s website.

“The vision of the home begins with the home owner.

The vision of the project begins with Reder Landscaping of Midland.”

These are the opening lines to one of the videos showcasing landscaping projects by Reder.

The concept, the writing and visual idea came from Kathy Murphy, KJM Productions.  We had captured numerous landscapes for a TV Commercial and Kathy had a vision to take it further.  Kathy is always looking out for her clients and seeing what else can be done to promote them.

After some talks with DW Video and owner Paul Reder, Kathy personalized the landscape videos, wrote scripts and we then edited them.  The first round was for a DVD that was given to the homeowners as a thank you for allowing us to capture their landscapes on video.  Kathy then did a rewrite and produce these for use on Reder’s website.  We did and wow!

KJM Productions and DW Video produce series of landscaping videos – utilizing videos produced by Kathy Murphy, shot and edited by Duane Weed.

Reder Landscaping website highlights 95% of the videos Kathy Murphy and Duane Weed produced.  These landscape videos add impact to the Reder message on their site.

Using the power of video allow Reder to show off there outstanding work.

Included in the mix of individual landscape projects are the TV Commercials Kathy wrote and produced.  Of course, DW Video did the editing.  According to Duane, “Audio is 90% of a good video.  Kathy makes my job easy.  Her concepts and creative flow allows me to edit these wonderful shots into a series of videos that mean business for Reder Landscaping.”

Reder Landscaping is a notch above the rest when it comes to visualizing their customers needs.  I love their business sense, their ability to transform ideas into reality.  This was taken from their website – “We don’t cut corners. We have the people, experience and dedication to do things right, and with an industry-leading five year warranty on hardscape workmanship, we have the strength, longevity and confidence to stand behind our work.”

The same is true in your message and marketing approach.  Give DW Video a call 231-937-5420.  No matter if it is a landscape video or promotional – have the Creative Team of KJM Productions and DW Video tell your story.
