Episode 213 – Cary Gordon – Rebranding / audio

rebranding

Cary Gordon with Prime Camera (@PrimeCameraUSA on twitter) returns to discuss rebranding with host Craig Price. It’s not common that a guest not named Alan Cerny comes on the show twice in a year. Last time, Cary came on to discuss his position as Social Media Marketer for Comicpalooza. This time, he’s here to discuss his day job with Microsearch, a name you may have heard in our speakers roundtable episode over the summer. When Cary mentioned to Craig that Microsearch was rebranding to become Prime Camera, even Craig could see that this would be a perfect opportunity to bring a case study to the podcast.  The two discuss the process of rebranding, why a company of 33 years felt now was the time to change, how to plan for a major change, dealing with resistance, how the new branding brought a larger scope to the company. and oh yeah….the briefly talk about how Batman v Superman sucked.  You can’t put two comicpalooza people in a room without it getting a bit nerdy.

Prime Camera grand opening will be October 12th at their location at 11500 S Sam Houston Parkway West Houston ,TX with a full day of workshops, discounts and prizes. You can find them at their new website http://primecamera.com as well as on twitter @PrimecameraUSA,  Instagram at PrimeCameraUSA and Facebook.

Episode 188 – Doug Devitre – Remote Selling / audio

Remote selling

Doug Devitre (@DougDevitre on twitter) calls host Craig Price to discuss remote selling. Selling is hard. It’s hard face to face, it’s hard on the phone. It’s just hard. Especially if you can’t physically get to where your client is. Thankfully, Doug is on the podcast to discuss his book Screen to Screen Selling: How to Increase Sales, Productivity, and Customer Experience with the Latest Technology.  Facetime is not just something we need with clients, it’s something we use to talk to them! Doug and Craig talk about turning presentations into visual conversations, how to best interact with clients when there are so many applications to choose from (hint: Use what they use!!) and why the almighty bandwidth is so important.

You can learn more about Doug at his self-titled website http://dougdevitre.com/ and you can pick up his book at amazon.com or wherever quality books are sold.

APP BONUS: Read the first chapter of Screen to Screen Selling: How to Increase Sales, Productivity, and Customer Experience with the Latest Technology.

Episode 166 – Paul Bright – Digital Filmmaking / audio

Digital Filmmaking

Director Paul Bright (@PaulBrightFilms on twitter) sits down with host Craig Price to discuss digital filmmaking. Comicpalooza premiered Paul’s latest film “Long Term Parking” on May 23rd. Little did he suspect that his trip to Houston would force him to cross paths with Craig! The two discuss creating films for the small, small screen (phones and tablets), how you think about shooting films with unlimited recording capabilities,  auditioning actors a foot away from a cell phone camera and some of the pros and cons of the available distribution outlets for independent filmmakers. They also discuss how the new, smaller high definition cameras allow for more shot flexibility and how actors act knowing that they can do unlimited takes (in theory) without having to start the scene all over. Also, Craig blatantly tries to get cast in Paul’s next film. Pathetic, really. It’s a great discussion for anyone interested in making their own independent films.

You can find Paul and his movies at http://PaulBrightFilms.com  and check out his vlog Paul’s Tub Talk on Youtube.

Episode 163 – Patrick Allmond – Video Marketing / audio

video marketing

Patrick Allmond (@PatrickAllmond on twitter) returns to talk the ins and outs to video marketing with host Craig Price. Let’s be clear, Craig makes no bones about it when he discusses his dislike for most video marketing. Why do you think he podcasts instead of vlogs?? Patrick talks both technical and practical as he explains what he uses and how he uses video marketing. He goes over the equipment needed (not much) as well has his process from camera to final post online, not only just creating his 3in5 videos but how he repurposes his video for blogs, podcasts, newsletters and more.

Episode 146 – Scott Whitney – Videography / audio

Videography

Scott Whitney joins host Craig Price to discuss this ins and out of videography. When it comes to video of himself, Craig would rather jab dull spoons into his eyes than sit through any part of the process but since his business demands proof of expertise he’s certainly aware of what videography involves. Instead of just rambling about his likes/dislikes, Craig recruited Scott Whitney of Whitney Media Productions to talk about why audio is just as important as any aspect of video, lightening is one of the most overlooked pieces and how to find a good videographer even when you’re on the road or travelling across country.
