VIDEO CONTENT CREATION

As you can see from our website’s content, we create videos as part of our core business. 

Reach out to me, and let’s discuss your needs and how we can make them happen.

VIDEO STRATEGY

Before making a video for a client, we want to talk with them to understand their goals and definitions of success. 

This process is what we refer to as the Mapping Out of Your Video Strategy.

Let’s have a chat.

VIDEO & WEB PRODUCTION

What does your visual footprint for YOUR business look like? Do you have one? Is your website filled with images? If not, you need to add them. What do you have with a video spin on things? Making prospective clients take notice may be a video away. If you don’t have any, let’s talk.

ABOUT US

Maureen-Famiano-headshot
Maureen Famino – I’ve been on television for over 30 years. I’m a storyteller, always looking for a great story to share.

Over the years, I’ve enjoyed reporting, producing, and executive producing stories that touch and change lives.

I’m about sharing positivity and lifting people.

What’s your story? I mean, your “real story?” Do you know? Do you share it? It may just set you apart. That’s what people need to hear.

Don’t know how? That’s where I can help!

I Help Businesses with Video & Audio Content Strategy & Creation.

I am an experienced specialist in television production, producing & show creation, program planning & concepts, public relations connections, and media coaching! This includes special project planning, on-location field remotes, and guest relations with various television clients, including politicians, Fortune 500 clients, celebrities, and many more. Social media is vital in this industry – I am spontaneous in taking an everyday guest booking and turning it into memorable viral videos. I have also worked as a reporter and anchor and helped with television guest coaching for on-air appearances.

I am an award-winning producer and creative relationship builder. Relations are essential in this business, and I pride myself on being innovative, eager, energetic, and thorough; I get results.

Revenue is the “name of the game” on television, and I recognize potential revenue projects when I see them. I’ve turned discussions into bookings and brought hundreds of thousands of dollars in new financial opportunities to the stations I’ve worked for. My creativity is limitless, and I enjoy and thrive in the creative atmosphere that turns the ordinary into extraordinary. Those victories are often priceless but have long-lasting reach.

I’d love to connect and help you spread your message and leave a mark. Reach out, and we’ll go from there.

Section FAQS

FAQ

You can pitch them once by email, then by phone or by another email. Don’t overdo if you do you’ll become a pest and producers will not book with you.

  1. Having received thousands and thousands of pitches myself over the year, I can tell you length does not matter. What does matter is putting the key information right at the top so the producer can quickly determine if it sounds like a good story or not.

Absolutely… If you know a person working in that industry or producer or show has a particular affection for something then it would make a lot of sense to pitch and mention your show knowledge. It also shows you’re going the extra effort to know a little bit about the show. It will go along way

You should keep it brief… In short. The producer does not have a whole lot of time to talk to people they know, let alone those they do not. Make it short and simple to the point.

Don’t cancel – do everything you can to keep it as is. The producer will have to quickly fill that hole with somebody else. It may not be what they wanted. And that leaves a bad taste in a persons mouth to ever use you in the future. Somethings can’t be avoided, things do happen. But do everything you can to make sure the date you agree to, works.

Wear bright solid colors. No clunky jewelry that could rub against the microphone and don’t overdue with makeup,  you don’t want to look like a clown.

They can’t. Especially if they’re in a studio and they are a little shiny. Powder will take that shine off of it and keep the audience listening to a guest and not looking at the shiny bald head.

You need to arrive early but not so early that the crew was hardly be at work yet. For television arrive 30 minutes ahead of time is fine. For radio follow the call in directions.

Review the bullet points. Don’t write lengthy answers that you’d like to share. If you do you will come off rehearsed and not conversational.  

The morning of the show is very busy… You may be one of seven different guests on the show that day if you are too needy that will not be good.

Yes! I have extensive experience in media relations.

There are 8 primary types of media relations and I can help you with all of them: General Media Relations, Strategic Communications, Community Relations, Public Affairs, Internal communications, Online and social media communications, Crisis communications, and Social responsibility.

The best time to send a press release is between 10 am and 2 pm—this is when editors open about one-third of all the emails they’ve received. Early mornings are less effective: open rates drop to 20.5% between 6 and 10 am.

When responding to media alerts, always do as the journalist has asked. If they ask you to email a particular address, do so. Don’t seek out their number and call or email incessantly. This is a sure-fire way to irritate them.

If you don’t have a digital press kit, journalists can email you for more information. But, journalists are busy, and if you don’t make it easy for them to find the information they’re looking for, they’ll look for it somewhere else.

To start, here’s what usually goes in a company press kit: Company details. Start with the essentials: a detailed company description, brand guidelines, high-resolution images & logos. You can also include relevant numbers or fact sheets in your corporate media kit.

First and foremost, Product demonstrations. Product demonstration videos are among the most popular types of how-to videos. In a product demo, you can showcase essential features and functionality, including proprietary solutions your brand has created.

Yes. Audience is absolutely the most important factor when choosing a social media platform. Nothing else really matters, not even size, if your audience isn’t active on the channel. Facebook, for example, has more active users than any other network, but if your audience hangs out on Snapchat, that’s where you need to be.

Yes! TV is one of my specialties. Lets talk!

Yes! Speaking at events is one of my specialties. Lets talk!
