September Luncheon – Video 101: Maximize Video Projects With our Without a Budget

13 Sep


Join us Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 11:30 a.m., at Dexter Bar-B-Que in Cape Girardeau for another great Tri-State AMP Luncheon!

A panel of local video professionals will offer guidance for stretching your video budget to get the best results. The program will answer when it’s acceptable to do-it-yourself and when you need to call a video professional as well as how to make the most of a self-produced video. The panel will also discuss how to streamline the production process to save time and money and offer some best practices for working with production companies.

“Visual storytelling is a compelling way to market any business or organization,” says Andrew Chronister, AMP president and president of Andrew Chronister Video Productions, “There are some great tools out there to make your own videos, but there are times when those tools just aren’t enough, depending on your goals. We hope to answer questions about that and give attendees some advice on making what’s available work for them and how best to work with video professionals.”

Tri-State AMP hosts monthly lunch programs for club members and community guests. Registration is required. Cost for the program, including lunch, is $15 for Tri-State AMP members, $20 for non-members and $12 for students. Register online at by Sept. 23.

Panelists include Chronister, an 18-year veteran at Red Letter Communications before starting his own company in 2009. With experience creating videos for local, regional, and national clients, he was also among the first in the area to build and operate a video drone.

Joining Chronister is Austin Bollinger, a video production specialist at Element 74. Bollinger has more than 10 years of experience in video including freelance work.

Drew Wright is the director of media services at Red Letter Communications where he oversees all aspects of video production for clients across the country.
