Thrust Your Speaking Career into High Gear! Get Fabulous Footage of YOU.
Here’s your Ultimate Speaker Demo Reel solution.
Meeting planners judge you by the quality of your demo reel when they are deciding if they will hire you as a speaker. That’s why your best, high quality footage is critical to your success in marketing yourself as a high-paid professional speaker. It’s also crucial whenever you are introducing a new topic to your repertoire. We know how hard it is to get that footage when you’re starting out.
Your Biggest Problem:
- Many venues don’t have enough space to give you good video
- Some events won’t allow you to film at all – often for legal reasons
- You may not have looked or felt your best that day
- The camera may have been too far away to get a good shot of you
- Sometimes, the cameraman isn’t focused on you at the moment when you deliver your best stuff
- The lighting might have been insufficient, non-existent or totally wrong for you
- You may not have legal rights to use the footage for your own marketing purposes
It’s sort of like finding that first job: no one wants to hire you without experience, but you can’t get experience without a job. Getting booked depends on having great footage, but you can’t get a great demo reel until you have enough good clips to assemble one. How can that be fair?
Your Easiest Solution:
Keller Media is sponsoring a Speaker Demo Filming Event. We’ll make you look like a star, as if you are speaking in a huge ballroom to a happy crowd of enthusiastic listeners. Here are the details:
- Two professional set designs, so it looks it look like you’re talking at two different, very impressive events
- Professional Hollywood hair and makeup person on site to make sure you look your very best
- Top speaking industry cameramen will shoot you – so you get film of your best work and you look like the big deal speaker you are fast becoming
- Proper lighting – just like a big multi-day corporate conference would have
- You get up to THIRTY (30) minutes on stage EACH DAY to perform at your best – so you get your best footage
- Still shots and headshots of YOU live on stage and in a formal portrait setting (optional)
- Expert stage direction while you’re performing (from Wendy)
- (OPTIONAL)Pre-event workshop with Wendy so you get some coaching before you go live so you can WOW! even yourself
Come show the world what you’ve got!
