Vacation Videos provides you with creatively successful, cost-effective video production for
your travel business. Each Vacation Video package includes the professional services
necessary to craft a complete presentation that will meet your needs.

Pre-Production Planning
We'll meet with you to identify your primary audience and the key benefits of your travel experience. We
then create a script to address this objective.

                      Production
                      In the Production Phase we use the lens to capture the imagery along with audio
                      equipment to gather the sound elements that ensure maximum effectiveness. We'll
                      work with key members of your staff as well as volunteer guests who contribute to an
                      effective highlight of your travel business. This is where our experience pays off for
                      you - we know how to work well with people as well as the technical tools!

Production (Editing)
And during the Post-Production Phase we employ editing expertise and
professional digital equipment to assemble the video and audio elements into a
professional piece that serves to deliver maximum impact, to engage your contacts and to turn prospects
into customers. My editing is performed on a digital video editing appliance called ‘Casablanca’ - this is a
professional tool, set apart from a software application you can buy at the local computer store.

                      I work with both a desktop editor in my studio as well as a Tablet PC version, so the
                    video editing can be done back in my office or even on-site at your location, providing
                    you a finished copy when I leave! With a multitude of appropriate effects, this system
                    affords me the ability to deliver to you not only professionally authored DVDs, but also
                    internet ready files to fit any website application.

Additional Production Benefits
With Vacation Videos you are also provided royalty free (copyright clear) production music and the
professional narration talents of Chet Davis. And we only use Taiyo-Yuden WATER SHIELD® DVD-R
disks for your copies to ensure water-proof, smudge-proof full-color designs on DVDs for your prospects.

We provide you with a finished program to help meet your marketing needs, your internet ready file will be
coded for optimum viewing on the internet delivery service we agree will best meet your demographic.

To ensure you meet your marketing goal - we also provide you with strategies to help maximize the Web
2.0 environment. And we can go so far as to create your own custom channel on YouTube® and the other
primary online video web distribution sites.

Bottom Line: Vacation Videos is working for you – your success is our success
