317 Jayme Mika Ct...

Real Estate Agent with RadnorLake Video

317 Jayme Mika Ct...
     Just finished doing this listing video for a local real estate agent here in the Davidson County area for his listing at 317 Jayme Mika Ct in Joelton, TN. This video is a little bit different than my norm. From what I have gleaned from others in the video business, videos of houses need to be between 3-4 minutes while personal videos need to be in the 60 - 90 Sec range. I will track this for hits and where folks tune out...

Michael: like the video. I am not a fan of the realtor being in the video. I prefer a voiceover, I think it's more professional. Maybe it's because I am quite a few pounds overweight and have a face for radio! LOL

Michael: You did a good job previewing the kitchen area; really liked the preview of the bonus room over the garage and the backyard view. Bedrooms and closets are alwas an attention getting.

Michael - Nice job. I especially liked the background music and his logo in the corner during the entire video. I have mixed feelings about seeing the agent.

Michael - I could not get rid of the feeling that there were two sides to it which did not really work together in this case: video and Virtual tour.

Video was at a faster pace, and then it was diluted with a long slides of the tour, with its quasi-movement.

I am sure you could have a more dymanic presentation if you combine fideo and stills without annoying movement. This way there would be 2 distinctive realities, one moving and one static, but still could go in a faster succession and would make the presentation shorter. I do not know about over 3 minutes, I got out way before.

I liked the technical stuff like good quality of video image. It looks that it was shot not with a tripod, but it is decently stable.

I love your work, and thought that I would just honestly give you my unprofessional but honest opinion

I did like it. What impressed me the most is that you gave an excellent representation of exactly what people could expect to see if they came there in person. I could clearly see what the room sizes were like, the colors, the light fixtures, floors, mirrors, counter-tops, vanities, etc. Too often, people only film the good parts and they leave out stuff that a buyer is going to see anyway. Why waste anyone's time, if you don't film it right from the beginning.

I didn't mind the narrator in the film. he talked, but then you shifted the focus was on the room and he was quiet. I liked that combination. Plus, it gave me an idea about the size of the rooms in relation to the tall man.

Michael, when the music was going and suddenly disappeared with the agent coming onscreen (at the beginning), it caused me to disengage a bit. He has a nice enough voice that he could do the voiceover for the whole thing or maybe keep the music a little higher and have him move through while you're shooting as opposed to staying static. For example, in the media room, he could be talking about it as he is entering. He can simply do a voiceover in the bathroom, too. I wouldn't pan up starting lower because it felt kinda funny finding this guy sort of lurking in my potential bathroom! (I'm just a girl you know....)

I thought your technical aspects were quite nice. I agree with Patricia about him not talking the entire time, but I would have someone say something about the yard while you're panning. Also, when he mentions the vaulted ceilings in the living room, I wanted to see what those looked like, as you did later, but you might bring that in at the time that he mentions it. Back to the end of the shoot, you might want him to "close" with something...for more information on this lovely home, or whatever...you get the gist of it.

These were just my first impressions.

I don't know Michael, I really liked it.  Philip seemed a little awkward ikn the beginning, but began to flow well in just a few moments.  Those few minutes went by quickly for me.  I guess because I wanted to see more!  I liked it.  Now, does Philip need a virtual stager?  LOL

Hi Michael~ I like Phillip, and am happy he wants to make his presence known. Face recognition, as you have clearly pointed out in the past, is a valuable asset! 

You can also really get a feel for the home, from curb appeal  all the way through to the back yard, and even if there are things you would do differently as far as interior design, landscape, etc., you have time to assess if this particular home would fit your needs!

My opinion: Goal achieved!...
