With the advent of cheaper and cheaper video cameras many business owners are wondering if it is worth filming their own promotional video.

1. Start with the end
2. Become a story teller
3. Think about your location
4. What you hear is as important as what you see
5. Get a good tripod and use it where needed
6. Can the camera see what you see?
7. Think about composition
8. Don't overdose on transitions
9. Practice makes perfect!
10. Promote your video - in the right places...

Keeping track of the boys in speedos!

IT FLOATS!!
Today marks history for the old Australian boat that has been out of water for over a year! +Cracking Media  joined the rowers at +Rossiter Rowing Boats  boatyard in the +Christchurch Priory  this morning to capture the boat’s first test in the water. It was an emotional moment all around as the reality of the guy’s epic rowing challenge around the UK sets in (or the boys just got some seawater in their eyes)!

Now that we know the boat works (phew!) the finishing touches are being made. Today the waterline of the boat was marked and currently has been taken out of the water to get its final lick of paint to protect it from algae, then all of the generous donators and sponsor’s names and logos will be added to the boat. If you wish to donate towards this challenge for two great charities +Wessex Cancer Trust  and +Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund, its not too late! Just visit http://goo.gl/LHd7Ak and you may still be able to get your name around the UK. It would be very much appreciated! Then all that’s left to do is to have its final test run on Friday, ready for launch day Saturday afternoon! 

+BBC South Today made an appearance for the test run earlier today, and interviewed the rowers to get their final thoughts before the big day. Catch that at 6.30pm tonight to get the latest from Steen Stones. Donating isn’t the only way to show your support, please spread the word with your friends and family. Or share your support by coming along to Boscombe Pier on Saturday at 4pm to see the launch for yourself. We look forward to seeing you down there! (we have stickers…)

Off to the Premier League we go! 
After last night's match AFC Bournemouth are promoted to the Premier League! So to celebrate we thought we would surprise the biggest fan in the office +Peter Lunn with some cherry gifts! #AFCB  

Peter has supported AFC Bournemouth for 48 years and has seen lots of lows, but he never believed he would see a day like today! We are going up!!

Big night tonight for AFC Bournemouth - The Cherries 
Today we are keeping our fingers crossed for our team, AFC Bournemouth. If they win against Bolton tonight they will almost seal promotion to the Premier League (bar a 17 goal or more turnaround in goal difference in the final match on Saturday).

The Cherries spent 64 years in the bottom two divisions until Harry Redknapp helped them reach the second flight in 1987. Six years ago they escaped relegation to the Conference and almost certain liquidation. Now, after two promotions in 5 seasons and in their second season back in the second tier,  if tonight goes well... it will be big plans for AFC Bournemouth. COME ON YOU REDS! #AFCB   #UTCIAD   #AFCBournemouth  
CHERRIES would all but seal their berth in the the Premier League with victory over Bolton at Dean Court tonight.

Branding/ Marketing help!
Hi there, we are Cracking Media, a marketing, media company based in Bournemouth! We have recently done some re-branding.. We think the M in the logo looks a bit like an elephant and might like to emphasise this, what do you think about our logo/ design? We would really appreciate as much feedback as possible!
