Have you ever had to suffer through a dry, stale educational video that bored you to tears or made you want to pull out your hair? Such videos are common elements of many corporations’ onboarding and regulatory compliance programs, so they’re not going away anytime soon. For video content producers, there’s a real opportunity to transform such pieces-to generate enthusiasm instead of eye rolls at the mention of the term “online training courses.” The real challenge is producing something that doesn’t just convey the information, but also keeps viewers genuinely engaged, smiling, and clicking for more. It takes a special knack. For more on this special touch, we interviewed A. Troy Thomas, President and Owner of Inertia Films.

If you find you have some extra time in between the caroling, feasts and family festivities, we have some amazing non-profit organizations that are desperately in need of whatever pro bono skills you can offer. (Would you love to help but have no extra time this holiday? No worries, you can still lend a hand by sharing their mission via social media.) “Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.” ~Charles M. Schulz
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are taking over the skies. They’re being used for everything from “reality capture” (as detailed for businesses to sheer enjoyment by hobbyists. As regulations become clearer and equipment grows increasingly affordable and user-friendly, the production industry is taking up its fair share of the sky, too. More video crews than ever are certified to fly small UAVs for commercial purposes.
