Video Production – Lancaster PA – aideM Media Minute September 2021

How’s it How’s it going? It’s Derek Lau with the September 2021 aideM Media minute. I hope you had an awesome summer. I hope you got to travel, and take a nice vacation. My family and I went to Myrtle Beach. That’s where we like to go every year. And we had a great time. So, I hope you enjoy the clips of that.

Speaking of the beach, we wrapped up a really cool project a little while ago with a local artist named Andrea Rene. She specializes in seashell art. She travels the world and finds rare seashells, and then she builds sculptures and works of art with seashells. She got invited to create a virtual art gallery for the Sanibel Island seashell show. So, I hope you enjoy that video.

Speaking of traveling, we just got back from an awesome video shoot in Houston. We rented some exotic cars and made a music video for an artist named this Just in. One of the exotic car companies that we rented the Lamborghini from made a behind-the-scenes video. So check that out in the links in the blog.

Finding The Top Talent With #VIDEO

Now, if you’re a small business owner or you’re in business at all, you know that it is hard to find workers. One thing that we’ve had some great success with is recruiting videos with aideM Media. We actually have a full system set up that we can help your company make videos, and run digital ads and digital advertising, to help you find the top talent. We can also make your company look like a place that people want to work. So, if you know anybody who is in HR and hiring, or a small business owner, that’s looking to attract the top talent and best employees for their company, we can help them out with recruiting videos. So, as usual, I’m going to keep it short and sweet. I hope you enjoyed the videos and coming along in our adventure with us. Again, if you know anybody who’s hiring or looking for workers, send them this video and let them know that we can help them with recruiting videos. I hope you have an awesome September. And we will see you in October

I hope you enjoy the videos.  Thank you for subscribing to our channel. Thank you for opening the email newsletter. Until I see you again, I hope you have a great one. Thanks for watching the aideM Media Minute.

Video Production – Lancaster, PA – July 2021 aideM Media Minute

How’s it going? It’s Derek Lau with the July, 2021 aideM Media Minute. I hope you’re having a great summer. I hope you’re getting out and enjoying yourselves. We’re working on some cool projects. We’re staying cool here in the office doing a lot of editing, but we’re also out shooting as well.

One thing that changed as far as people’s habits and things like that with the pandemic last year was a lot of people were staying in and not going out on vacations and not going out as much. A result of that was people spending more money on their home and improving their home. We partnered with Superior Plastic and Key-Link Fence on some videos about how you can improve your backyard and how you can improve your patio out back of your house. It’s a pretty cool video. It’s an installation video so that our contractors and their customers can install the product properly and it looks its best.

Another project that I’m sure you probably have heard about already but we’re still shooting on, no pun intended, is the feature film that we’re working on called, One Gun. We’ve been working down in Philadelphia shooting this wonderful script that was written by Thomas Overton and produced by Donnell Regusters and Mark Brooks. We’ve done short films before and we’ve done lots of commercials and all kinds of other video production, but a feature film is a dedication of time. There’s a great cast involved. There’s a great crew. I can’t wait to share this movie with you when it’s all done.

With the Olympics coming up, we want to tell you about a broadcast TV spot you might be seeing while you’re watching the Olympics. It’s for Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster. It’s called, Caring For the Community. We actually started this commercial early fall, late summer last year, but it got delayed because of some of the restrictions put down in the wintertime. This has been a project we’ve been working on technically for a long time and I’m excited to share it with you. When you’re watching the Olympics this year rooting for the red, white, and blue, keep an eye out for that commercial. I hope you enjoy it. It was a really fun one to work on.

I hope you enjoy the videos. I have a surprise for you next month. I have some big news that I wanted to reveal. I hope you’re enjoying your summer. Thank you for subscribing to our channel. Thank you for opening the email newsletter. Until I see you again, I hope you have a great one. Thanks for watching the aideM Media Minute.

Video Production Lancaster PA – March 2021 aideM Media Minute

How’s it going? It’s Derek Lau with the March 2021 aideM Media Minute. We worked on some really cool projects this month, but the one thing I wanted to tell you about was our new toy. I mean, tool. We got a new camera. It’s been a while since we got a new camera, but we invested in a RED Digital Cinema camera. We’re actually working on a feature-length film in Philadelphia called One Gun. So we invested in some new equipment and we’re going to be taking that on to our movie set to work in Philadelphia. So we’re really excited about the capabilities of the camera and the look that it’s going to get. We also got some new cinema movie lenses as well. So we’re super excited to test out our new toy, I mean tools, and I can’t wait to share some of the work with you.

As far as some of the work that we did this month, we did a really cool recruiting campaign for Lift Incorporated. A lot of companies in the area are struggling to find the top talent. They want people that are going to work hard, devote themselves to the company, show up on time and just be part of the company culture. So everybody’s doing billboards, everybody’s doing radio ads, Lyft Incorporated invested in the power of video, and they are using YouTube advertising and recruiting to hire the top talent in the area. You can click the link below to check out some of the example videos that we’ve made for them. We’re getting some great results and we’re really excited to partner with them on this.

And as important as healthcare workers are in this day and age with everything going on, we’re also glad to help come alongside Reading Area Community College, to make a commercial to get new nursing students into their nursing program. So you can click on that link below to check that out as well.

I’m going to keep it short and sweet. We got to go play with our new tool. I mean, we’ve got to go get accommodated to our new tools, and I’ll let you check out the videos. But as always, I wanted to say thank you for subscribing to our videos. Thank you for opening our email newsletter. If you know anybody that might be interested, feel free to share this email or this video with them, tag a friend, and we will see you in April. Take care.

February 2021 aideM Media Minute

How’s it going? It’s Derek Lau with the February, 2021, aideM Media Minute.

With February being Black History Month, we wanted to give you an update on our Giving Black Project that we’re doing, about African-American Leadership & Entrepreneurship.

We have a teaser update from Derek Gaskins that we shot in Boston, Massachusetts and we are going to be shooting some more episodes on the West Coast and in Georgia coming up. So stay tuned and check that out.

And you’ve probably noticed, unless you’ve been living under a rock, we’ve had a lot of snow this month. So on a personal note, I just wanna share a video about me and the kids out snowboarding. At Roundtop, I took Matthew and Alex, for lessons at Roundtop, and I took Olivia and Liam on an adventure, up to Blue Mountain. So I hope you enjoy that video

And to let you know what’s been going on, business-wise at aideM Media, in this type of business climate you always have to change and learn new things. So we’ve pivoted and we’ve picked up some new skills. One of the new things that we learned how to do this year is FPV Drone Flying. So we can fly drones indoors, and we wear the goggles, and it’s a first person point of view. We can shoot indoors, we can shoot offices and things like that. And we’re actually gonna be going out to a drone conference in Ohio to learn how to improve our skills and get even better with FPV Drone Flying.

The other thing we started doing a lot more of, is live streaming. We did a couple live streaming concerts, and we’ve done streaming of events. With people not being able to gather in person, they still need to get together somehow, and communicate as a company, and still find ways to share events. So there’s actually an interview, that we did with Joy Dickson from the High Companies, on how we were able to help High with one of their events through live streaming.

So with all that’s going on in the world, and everything that’s going on in people’s personal lives, and business and things like that, I just wanna give you an update, let you know what we’re up to at aideM Media, we’ve got our Giving Black documentary program, coming out again. Just wanted to give you a personal family update on how my family has been enjoying this winter weather. And also just wanted to give you some positive inspiring news on ways that we’ve been improving our skills at aideM Media, and bringing new and improved services, to our customers.

So if you know anybody that might be interested to learn more about video production or what we’ve been doing aideM Media, feel free to share this with them. And if you haven’t already, hit the Subscribe button, so you can stay up to date with what we got going on at aideM Media.

And again, I just wanted to say, thank you. I appreciate you for subscribing to our email list, and checking out our videos, and just staying in tune, and staying on the same wavelength of what we got going on here at aideM Media.

We’ve got some really big things going on in March. So we’ll get a video out to you, and let you know what’s going on. Hopefully it starts to warm up, and the snow goes away, and we can start to enjoy spring. But again, thank you for watching and we’ll see you in March.

Take care.

October 2020 aideM Media Minute

Happy fall. It’s Derek Lau with the October 2020 aideM Media Minute. As you can see, there are some things changing out here. The leaves are changing, I got my fall sweater on and my pumpkin latte, but that’s not all that’s changing. The way people are doing business is changing and the way we’re doing videos is definitely changing.

We’ve done two new types of videos recently that we haven’t really done a lot of in the past. One of those is an FPV drone-style video that we partnered with Nick Lang Media on, for the Power Packs nonprofit organization. The difference between FPV style video and a regular drone video is the pilot actually wears goggles and they fly a smaller drone at a faster speed inside a building, instead of your typical drone shots are outside of a building. The other style video that we did recently that was new for us was a 360 tour video of the High Steel factory out in Greenfield. These types of videos can be watched with a VR headset or they can be watched on your cell phone when you twist the screen around. Check them out. They’re pretty cool and they’re fun and different.

The other new thing that we’ve had an opportunity to do a lot of this year was virtual galas. We work with a lot of nonprofit organizations on their galas in the past and their videos that play up on the screen. This year, with limitations on crowd sizes and things like that, we’ve helped a lot of companies tell their stories with video and help raise money for their nonprofit organizations through virtual galas. There’s a couple of examples of ones that we’ve done for The Denver House and REAL Life Community Services, as well as Tabor, and we have a couple more in the pipeline that we’re working on in the future.

Speaking of nonprofit organizations, Lancaster has the Extraordinary Give coming up in November. We’ve already started working on a couple of videos for nonprofit organizations. If you know a nonprofit organization that is looking to gain volunteers or gain support during the Extra Give, we’d be glad to help them out. Again, that’s some of the new things we’ve been doing at aideM Media. There’s been a lot of changes going on. I hope your business is changing and your business is surviving and doing well. I look forward to seeing you in November. Take care.

August2020AMM

How’s it going? It’s Derek Lau with the August 2020 AideM Media Minute. I hope you’re having an awesome summer. I wanted to start out this video newsletter with some awesome news on how you can win a YouTube advertising package. That’s right. We’re going to be giving away a YouTube advertising package to help your business grow with video and grow with YouTube. So, there’s a button in the description below where you can find out more information. You fill out a survey and you could win a YouTube advertising package to grow your business.

As far as video projects go, there’s been a lot going on with the Black Lives Matter movement, and things like that, so we took it upon ourselves to work on a video project called Giving Black. So what we’re working on with our Giving Black project is African American entrepreneurs. We got two stories coming up. The first one is with Vincent Lewis. He is a determined entrepreneur who’s trying to open his first restaurant in a town of 300 people called Laceyville, Pennsylvania. So check out his story. There’s going to be a part two coming after that one as well.

As far as other video projects go, I want to share a video we’re doing for Reading Area Community College that I was real proud of, it’s about their mechanical and trade programs. So I know there’s a lot of talk about mechanical and trade versus your typical four-year degree. So if you know anybody who’s interested in that, share it with them. It’s an awesome program.



So again, make sure you sign up for our YouTube advertising contest that we’re having. It doesn’t cost anything to enter. Good luck, and I’ll see you in September.

YTADS

Click Here to grow your business with YouTube!

All right, well, it looks like you’re interested in growing your business with video. I promise I’ll keep my shirt on in this video. Whether that makes you happy, sad, or indifferent, you have my word.

A lot of people have been running video ads on Facebook and other formats and stuff like that and television. But there’s a huge opportunity on YouTube, and not a lot of people know how to run video ads properly on YouTube. But we can help you.

YouTube ads are an underused market…

So basically, we’re going to give away a couple of two-month YouTube advertising packages to a couple of different businesses in different industries. We’re going to determine the best candidates by a survey that you can click on below. The survey is going to ask you just a couple of questions. It’s really quick. It’s going to ask you about what kind of marketing you’re doing now and what kind of marketing you want to do in the future and what kind of goals you want to set with marketing.


If you’re selected, we’ll produce you a couple of videos and we will set you up an entire campaign that would generate leads for your business. We’ll even give you a monthly report to see how video is helping your business. So what we’ll provide for free, if you’re selected, is videos for your campaign and a YouTube strategy to generate leads for your business. That could be retargeting and following up with different videos and all different types of techniques that we use that fit different businesses in different industries to get better results.

R.O.I with Video!

The video, the strategy, and the marketing execution is free, but you will have to make an investment on your end. You’ll have to cover the ad spend. So you will be paying Google. We don’t have a money tree, so we can’t just print money and pay for your ad spend. So we’ll do our part for free, but if you are selected, you would have to pay some money to pay for the ads themselves and the placement on the internet. It’s still a really good deal, because we would not be charging you for our services, and we would help you get leads and grow your business with video.

So if you want to get started and you want to take advantage of this opportunity, click on the link below for the survey, fill out the quick survey, and we’ll get back to you to let you know if you won the two-month trial or if there’s any other way we can help you. Now, we’re going to be giving away a couple of these, so if you don’t win at first, don’t be discouraged, because we are going to give this away to a couple of different businesses in different industries.

Again, click the button below. It’s a quick survey, and we look forward to hearing from you and talking to you about video marketing and generating leads with your business on YouTube. Take care.

TENACITY

To run a business you have to have #TENACITY! You have to build on repeated small wins, that will turn into big wins. Sometimes life will give you lemons, and you have to learn to make lemonade and never give up… keep pushing, and work your way through adversity to come out stronger.

I hope you enjoy our stories of Tenacity!!!! Are there any particular stories that you can share on how you overcame challenges and became tenacious?

January 2020 aideM Media Minute

How’s it going? It’s Derek Lau with the January 2020 AideM Media Minute. Thank you for subscribing and thank you for tuning in, we’ve go a lot of cool videos for you this month. The one thing I definitely wanted to talk to you about, I touched on a little bit last year, was our company values.

Last year we told you about our first two company values which are Generosity and Passion. The third one is Elevation. Altogether it’s GPETS –Generosity, Passion, Elevation, Tenacity and Shine.

And for Elevation the two things I wanted to show you was one: I’m very excited to share with you our 2020 demo reel. It’s hot off the press. It’s all our best stuff for 2019, so I hope you enjoy it.

The other thing I want to share with you about our company elevating and going to the next level is some of our video marketing capabilities. And one of our best sources for video marketing is YouTube advertising. There’s not a lot of people that do it and we are very, very good at it.

I have another video here where I show some results we’ve had for different markets, from attorneys to car dealerships to real estate agents and insurance companies and mortgage brokers.

And of course, what’s an aideM Media Minute without us showing you some of our favorite work? Recently we wrapped up another commercial for the Rutter’s Dairy and it’s all about chocolate milk. And one of my favorite actresses and family members, Nan Lau, has a cameo in this one too, so I hope you like that.

We’ve just had our first snow of 2020, so just to keep it in season I wanted to share with you a video that we did last year. We got some aerial drone footage of last year’s last snow. So I hope you enjoy that and I hope you’re enjoying the snow.

Again, thank you so much for subscribing and reading this Aidem Media Minute. If you know somebody that would enjoy these videos, please share this with them and share it on your social media. I’ll see you February — have a great 2020! 

August 2019 aideM Media Minute

How’s it going? It’s Derek Lau with the August 2019 aideM Media Minute.

I hope you’re doing well, hope you’re staying cool with all these heatwaves we’ve been having this summer. I hope you got to take some vacations, hope you got to take a couple trips, travel a little bit, but most of all, just hope you’re enjoying your summer.

Maybe you got to see a baseball game or taking your kids to some traveling tournaments or something like that. Speaking of baseball games, one of the videos I wanted to share with you this month was one that we did for the Lancaster Barnstormers, for the whole Rock the L campaign. If you want to check that video out, you can check it below.

And of course one of my other favorite parts of summer is getting farm fresh vegetables, Lancaster County produce, things like that. So another video that I really had a fun time making and I’m really proud of, was one we partnered on with Stetler Dodge. It’s kind of a spoof, kind of a little parody-style video, where we’re having a little fun poking at your artisan maker-style videos and also letting people know how much they care about their customers with their farm fresh video. So check that one out, too. I hope you like it.

And as we roll into August, or what some people call the dog days of summer, I wanted to share with you another commercial that we did with our friends at Rutter’s, that we got to work with some furry friends and some new type of talent. So check out the Summer of Freedom commercial that we did, and the Dog Days of Summer spot that we did with the Rutter’s farm stores and convenience stores. It’s a really fun spot, and we had a lot of good time making it.

And even though it’s hot, hot, hot, I wanted to give a little throwback to a video that will remind you of some cooler days. It wasn’t too long ago. It was the last snowstorm that we had of 2019. We got some really fun drone footage, some really interesting looking drone footage in the middle of the snowfall, and things like that. We got some woods. We got some Lancaster County scenery and Lancaster County businesses. So if you want to think cool thoughts and cool off a little bit, check out our winter snow drone footage.

And as I enjoy my time here on the beach in beautiful, sunny South Carolina at Myrtle Beach, I just wanted to let you know I’m thankful for everyone who subscribes to this email newsletter, and our YouTube channel, and things like that. So I wanted to ask you to do one thing for me, if you don’t mind. If you know somebody that might be interested in this email newsletter, forward this email to them and ask them to sign up for it, or if you’re watching this video on YouTube, just hit that subscribe button down below and subscribe to our channel, and we’ll keep you updated with what other video projects we’re working on and what other things we’re doing with video marketing to help companies grow their business with video. Over and out, I’ll catch you in September.
Derek Lau, aideM Media Minute.
