Grip It Good

Who knew that reviewing the responsibilities of a Grip could be so cool. 10 minutes of the insider workings of making movies as a Grip makes you want to PAY to see a movie one of these guys worked on.

By the transitive property if I were to do a long-form video about a designer, or tool and die person, that helped build a Tesla or the new Corvette and it sounded cool then I’d be more inclined to buy their product, correct?

Someday, hopefully soon, marketers will figure out the value of well-done long-form and use it to inspire customers and prospects.

Please.

Call Of Duty Long Form

We’ve been on a rant the last few years pressing clients and prospects on producing long form video. Call Of Duty has produced a really nice new 2 1/2 minute piece with actor Peter Stormare (Fargo and Seinfeld) as The Replacer.

In a nice shift in tone Call Of Duty goes with funny as opposed to hyper-violent.

Again, we just don’t know why more aren’t building long-form when they seem to work so well.

The Beauty of Barbershops

I don’t know how any marketer can see this video and not feel inspired to make something long form about the craft of their products.

Interesting how we can know more about something like Barbering or the history of Johnnie Walker than how our 20-40k cars are made when we buy them.

Shame on any auto-marketer who isn’t crafting long-form to explain how they’re doing it differently.
