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.
