Three generations of dairy farming; DairyNZ storytelling project

Really proud of the video story telling project we did with DairyNZ last year to help bring their Dairy Tomorrow strategy to life.

This is the first of five wonderfully diverse stories we did. Produced by enthuse working with the talented Paul Sparkes from Sweet As Media.

Really appreciated we had this opportunity through the work we did with Dairy Women’s Network

Three generations of the O’Reilly family love farming and their cows, and they are proud to be amongst New Zealand’s world leading dairy farmers.

SOMETIMES WE OVER THINK THINGS

SOMETIMES WE OVER THINK THINGS

We’ve had a great time in the last week capturing some video content for an overseas rugby documentary.

We spent time talking to fans outside the home of Canterbury Rugby Orangetheory Stadium, we chatted to former CEO of NZ Rugby David Moffett and we cruised a few grounds looking for goal posts that were still up….

And that offered up an opportunity. I got my hands on a rugby ball for the first time in ages… The first thing I did when I picked it up was kick it to myself a couple of times…

It felt good; it felt like stepping back in time… to a younger self. I liked the feeling of the rugby ball… a few memories came back…. I then looked at the posts and drop kicked for the first time in…. a long time..

Hey, most people will know what a drop kick is? Right?

A drop kick in rugby involves dropping the ball and then kicking when it hits the ground; in contrast to a punt where you kick the ball without letting it hit the ground first. …

Originally it was one of only two ways to score points, along with the place kick. You have to get a few things right. It’s harder than it looks… but if you’ve grown up playing rugby, and you were a first five or even fullback.. like I was… you did a fair amount of drop kicking… both to kick off and at the posts to score points.

There’s been a few pretty famous drop goals – for example Zinzan Brooke vs England Rugby in the 1995 Rugby World Cup semi-final and Joel Stransky for South Africa Rugby against NZ that won the World Cup for the Springboks in 95.

My first effort hit the right hand upright…. so collected the ball, looked up at the posts, and went through the process again… the technique was still there – I hit the sweet spot and the ball went through the middle of the posts….

No one saw it except my cameraman Paul from Sweet As Media Limited… but it felt good.

I wasn’t successful the first time – I could have said I was aiming for the upright! But I adjusted, focused and got it right the second time.

It was a small thing. Something that wasn’t needed for our filming, but at that moment it was just something I had to do.

I didn’t think much about it, I just did it because I wanted to.

Sometimes we over think things. Sometimes we just have to do things. Take a moment out of a day to just do something – connect to something that makes you feel good

Just a thought for a Friday
Have a great weekend cheers John

WRITE GREAT SCRIPTS FOR VIDEO

All good video marketing campaigns start with good video scripts.

As I’ve learned first-hand after writing lots of video scripts for various projects the amount of effort you put in is directly correlated to the quality of the end product.

The better the script, the better the end result. Want to talk about getting results for your business using video marketing? Schedule a time with me today. 👍 I look forward to talking to you soon.

BLAST FROM THE PAST; show reel 2004

Digging out the TV show reel from 2004. This is some presenter links from coverage of cycling event Miles Continental Le Race produced by PictureX (now called kinetic) produced for Sky Sport NZ

Worked on this event for about 12 years, fronting the programming for TV coverage between 2004 and 2006, and in the role of media manager. 2006 was a big year where enthuse spent nine months working on marketing and media comms for the event that resulted in the largest numbers ever to compete in the event, just a fraction under 2000 riders!

WANT TO FEEL GOOD?

WANT TO FEEL GOOD?
There’s an awesome feeling, that feeling of getting some feedback about a business you’ve worked with from someone who thought it was great. They saw the content, they liked it, they ‘got it’ and they had some really good feelings about the work they’re doing – and that made me feel great! And it was the visual storytelling, the video content that they loved and connected with.
