Taking the Plunge with Mixpo

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Missy Caulk TEAM
My First Experiment with Mixpo

I took the plunge and ordered Mixpo from Activerain. Thanks to Brad Andersohn, walking me through it the first time, I was able to put this first video together. Brad promises me he is going to be doing a step by step tutorial on it. There are so many things you can do with it that it will take me some time playing around with it to get good. I think I deleted and started over so many times my eyes were crossed. Yea, I said "absolutely" way too much.

Last Saturday we were at the Michigan spring football game, and while I was there, I did a quick interview with Paul Bunton, the Chief of Police in Saline, MI. I have known Paul for a while both through Saline School meetings and Saline Chamber of Commerce Events. Chief Bunton has been Chief since 1994, coming from the Ann Arbor Police Department.

Mixpo is a dynamite program that we are fortunate to have the ability to use through Active Rain. To read more on it, read Brad Andersohns post on Getting Started with Mixpo. Take the plunge like I did.

David, get the bigger one, the batteries run for 1 hour instead of 30 minutes. It will be worth it. $149.00. Target had them on clearance this week for $90.00. Also try Amazon but if you can find them on clearance your cheapest way to go. Go blue !  Shall we tailgate together? Ha

Missy - Great first attempt, good interview.  What I appreciate most of all is that you love to dive right in and then encourage us to follow.

I think that's great! I am very hesitant to dive into the video thing myself, mainly it's because I rarely watch business type of videos myself, unless it's funny ones. Maybe I will test it out at some  point..

thanks for sharing ;)

Missy, I am working on the tutorial, but today was a day off.  I went and finally met my brother, that particular post has bumped it's way to the top for now.  Mixpo tutorial very close behind it!  OMG!!!  What a day today was!  Thanks for the nice twitter by the way...   :-)

I understand how hard it is to do make a video.  Was the softward easy to learn?  I wish I had more money to spend on all these cool items.  Have to lead with revenue NOT expenses. I would like to be able to work with this sometime this year.  We'll see.

As always, way to go Missy.

Very cool - Overall, how easy is it to use, edit, add stuff, etc? I have a video editing program I currently use but it's has some limitations that really bug me! Just wondering if it would be much different with this (although from what I've read and seen here on AR, it seems to pretty impressive). Thanks for sharing Missy!

Way to Go Missy!!!  I love that you are jumping in there with MixPro and video blogging.  But, I am most impressed on the topic.  What a cool idea to have your police chief talking Saline public safety at the game!!!  Between the game spirit and the great things he had to say I'm ready to move to Saline!!!  Perfect subject for video.

I liked it Missy!!  I have been watching the different attempts to use it.  I have not really heard a lot of negatives about it.  I am thinking of taking the plunge myself.  I just don't want to get something I can't or won't use because its not as easy as I thought.  I need SIMPLE!!

Ok, I'm going to take the plunge into Mixpo.  I'll be remixing the video I did for the contest so that it can be a good comparison...

Missy, Great video! I would have never guessed this was your first.  I love the idea of personal interviews and will be doing many of these with my new flip camera!  Good job Missy.

Missy, when will the learning stop?  Once again, great information that I will find useful.  I just need to become familiar with it and start using it.
