Political Ads

I'm making political ads ad running them on social media.  It's a whole lot cheaper than road signs or billboards, and the ads seem to reach a lot of people.  Whether or not they'll be effective in getting elected is yet to be seen.

But, there has been a learning curve.  An adviser told me that it would be best if I could do the ad in one take, without editing transitions.  And, I'm okay with that, I just have to keep shooting until I get it right.  With setup considered, it takes me about ab hour for each minute of video.  And, I have a lot of interesting out-takes.  I'm thinking about clipping them all together and making an out-take video after the election.  That might be a lot of fun.

Here's my latest.  It took about an hour and a half to get this done.

Vote Dezendorf!

Good ad, but you need to change the lighting so that you don't look like you're wearing a mask over your eyes.

Now we know how to pronounce your name. But, sorry, you don't have my vote .... I'm in Oregon. About the shadow; you gotta keep the "white hat" slogan because it works.

You may find that certain outtakes can be used to show you are actually human and relate to your constituents. And I agree -- lighting needs to change. Good luck!

My take is it sounds like he is talking in a box. It's that 'hollow' sound, like a slight echo. The rest was fine...except right at the end when it seems the light flickered. But what do I know, I'm in socialist CA.
