Recently I was invited to speak at the “FUTURE OF SOCIAL MEDIA” conference here in Melbourne which was a lot of fun.
I met so many great people on the day and also had the chance to find out about the latest Social Media strategies.
How cool is that?
I also had the great fortune to meet Miri Rodriguez from Microsoft and we chatted here about importance of storytelling for your business or startup.
…. and how you can now create compelling videos on your smartphone or tablet.
There are some compelling ideas here and I also talk about how I record and edit my videos as part of the “MAGIC MELBOURNIANS” video series.
Keith Keller: So we’ve talked about storytelling as a powerful mechanism, but one of the big stories in the room today is budget
Miri Rodriguez: Yeah
Keith Keller: Can you explain a little bit about how people can enter the game,
Miri Rodriguez: Yes
Keith Keller: Without having to spend hundreds of thousands, or even hundreds of Dollars.
I’ve got a Tablet, a Samsung Tablet, $50 stand, couple of hundred Dollars and we’re here.
Miri Rodriguez: That’s it, and it’s as good as it can get.
Honestly I love what you’re doing, and I love how you’re doing it, and showcasing it right now with this.
At Microsoft, of course we have a bigger budget than a lot of people in this room have, and in reality, a lot of people come into these conferences and go:
“Yeah great Microsoft, because you have the budget, but how do I do it? I’m a one man show, right?”
…. but you’re doing it that way!!.
It’s exactly what technology is allowing today and with the platform of social Media we as consumers, as we consume that media, we no longer care so much about the HD part of that.
“It’s organic, it’s real and it’s much better because of that”
It’s what’s happening right now, we are here, we’re live, we’re using our phones and that is the beauty.
Its evergreen content that you can use and re-purpose for so many other things, and a lot of other people will be watching it for different purposes.
Keith Keller: Yeah
Miri Rodriguez: The tips and tricks you can get out of this, you can do lots from this, you can do all kinds of different things from just one video so this really is:
“Creativity at its best”
You’re a prime example, I mean he’s a prime example of this, you are just;
Keith Keller: I’m very pleased that I’ve had the courage to sort of come out.
Miri Rodriguez: I love it, I love it, it’s incredible.
Everybody should be doing this if; you know there’s no excuse about budget.
Honestly creativity is the name of the game and right now with all the smaller technology, with the capabilities that a smart phone has the world is yours to have so let’s use this.
Keith Keller: And that is why I’m using Windows Movie Maker to edit the videos
Miri Rodriguez: Wooo!!
