From the young buck with a chip on his should because he has something to prove:
Hey, I'm reaching out to several of you car dealers I've hand picked that I'd be interested in working with. To give you a quick lay of the land, I run a creative studio, we are currently working on our first automotive project, and my personal goal in life right now is to blow away all of the video companies you are already using. I'd like to get you the quality of video and graphics that usually only manufacturers can afford, and try to do it for pricing that is comparable if not better than what you are paying.
Because I'm a young ambitious guy who happens to have a chip on his shoulder about how much video companies charge for ugly car commercials and I'm hardheaded enough to not give a damn if it pisses my competitors off that I underbid them to build out my auto portfolio.
I'm not in your city, why am I bothering you?:
Because of a couple of reasons. #1) I have certain mysterious resources that will let me get all of the local footage establishing you, your brand, and location, for less than you'd pay, without ever setting foot in your city. #2) I can source most of the cars you'd want me to shoot and keep it local so you get the advantage of all of the low cost resources like sexy models, sound engineers, voice over artists, etc. that I have built up exactly for this. #3) Even if I do need to transport my team out there, it could still save you money or at least give you a way better product.
What am I proposing?
Quite simple. I have one more shoot left to wrap up this first project before I can show you final product. If you are interested, let me know and I'll email you the video when it's finished . If you like what you see, we can talk.
Why we are quite awesome:
I'm attaching what I've had time to put together (1st link at bottom: MG explainer for current client, 2nd link: some rough draft footage from one of the 5 car shoots we pulled off in one day along with the music we composed (client chose genre) for the commercial. Keep in mind that this was our first ever Automotive shoot, we had to figure it out on the fly, shot 5 commercials in one day (5x more than you are supposed to try and accomplish), and I didn't have my new master camera operator who has plenty of experience filming cars at the time. *If my team can accomplish that in their first practice run without our best CO, how do you think it's going to look if we shoot one for you? Also, on top of all the sexy models, awesome locations, and talented people, we can shoot with cameras that would make your current production company green with envy. For our nicer commercials, we can shoot with RED Epics, the same cameras they use for filming: Thor, The Book Of Eli, Spiderman, Elysium, Wrath of the Titans, and on and on and on.
So check out the pictures of some of the cars we've shot, our actors, equipment, and let me know if you are interested in chatting.http://vimeo.com/loqey/ppaexplainerhttp://vimeo.com/loqey/ppafootage
