Real stories inspire. Which, in my opinion, is better than entertaining. What do you think? #internalcomms
One of the most common misconceptions I encounter when working with companies on internal communications videos is the idea that we have to “come up” with ways to entertain employees with added humor or excitement. All the while, we can agree that some of the most engaging videos we watch are real, simple stories discovered …

Words of wisdom, +Laura Neidig. And good point - I have never regretted a run either (but I did regret not drinking enough & getting dehydrated - but there was definitely a lesson learned!). I'll keep experimenting until I get it right. Even though my runs are sometimes hard and crappy, I love to run and want to run longer, stronger and faster. Thanks!

Making a video? You should really consider your music options carefully - +Jen Edds shares some great tips on the +12 Stars Media blog.
Music and sound are one of the most impactful elements of any video production. Just ask Martin Scorsese. His movies are full of ear candy, and the music plays its own role in the storytelling. You might not have a Scorsese budget, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your message across just as clearly as Joe Pesci with …

Super helpful, quick post about choosing a background for video interviews from +Michelle Downs.
The phrase “best background for video interviews” is actually a common search term visitors have used when discovering our website. And, since we haven’t written something specifically about how to choose the best background for video interviews, we decided to change that. From green screens to backdrops to conference room walls; […]

A nice look into how the Branson tourism team produced a few real, simple videos to help market some of their unique restaurants. 
Desire: To create unique, experiential video content for the Branson CVB’s website and blog. Challenge: High expense for professionally shot and edited video. Also, no equipment or editing software available to staff for quick web videos. Background: Branson is a small city of just over 10,000 full-time residents in southwestern …

Connecting people.
Introduction
Rocky is the man behind the wheel on the 12 Stars Media bus. When he’s not working alongside fellow 12 Stars team members, hes consulting one-on-one with companies about using video in their marketing and communication plans or engaging rooms full of communicators by speaking in places like Microsoft HQ or the Big Apple

A communicator to the core, all work and no play wouldn't make Rocky a dull boy, but he has his fun too: he loves to hang out with his wife and two boys, and together they’re Disney fanatics who visit Disney Parks annually. 

He’s an amateur chef (though he won’t tell us if he wears an apron), and believes whatever you can get out of a box or in a restaurant, you can make at home if you try, by golly. And like any real professional in the video biz, he’s an avid fan of watching movies.
