So here it is, my final blog post as an intern at Skillman Video Group, ending with a nice round number of 20. I have to say, or write, that I feel as if I have come a long way in terms of my blog writing and my understanding of internet marketing. While video production has been my main area of focus for the better part of a decade, learning all that goes along with marketing the videos that one creates has been the most challenging and rewarding experience for me while at SVG. What seems to set SVG apart from other full service video production companies is the fact that they practice what they preach when it comes to promoting and marketing themselves. SVG offers expert internet marketing work for clients which includes SEO, website content like blog writing and social media management. This type of work is what I have been doing for the past three and half months for SVG’s sites and it has given me insight into how important it is to constantly keep providing new content to increase your web presence and maintain it to attract clients.
Not all of my intern hours were spent sitting in front of a computer, blogging and typing in keywords however; I also went on quite a few on-location video shoots. Designated as the behind-the-scenes photographer and sound, lighting, camera, renaissance woman, I got to be very involved in every shoot. This led me to new experiences like being exposed to Hebrew, exploring the wacky Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville, and meeting a Great Horned Owl at Blue Hills Reservation.
The culmination of my stint with Skillman Video Group ended with writing, shooting, and editing a marketing video of my own. After some anxiety over finding locations and actors, everything went as smooth as could be and turned out how I had envisioned. With only a few days away from having the final cut finished, I feel that I have contributed to the future marketability of the company. I want to thank Christina and Francis for making my time spent at SVG gratifying, comprehensive, and always entertaining.
