Nature’s Best Photography: Smithsonian Exhibit Video

DCOnlineVideo provided substantial creative and production input on the video below which ran at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, as a multimedia presentation for the Windland Smith Rice International Awards Awards exhibit. (See production credits below video player).

Executive produced by Nature’s Best Photography, the video introduced visitors to the competition, revealed the hidden artistry of nature photography, and most importantly, promoted the exhibit’s and museum’s shared mission of creating appreciation for the beauty and wonder of the natural world.

Video of The Day: Pearl Jam Fan’s Video Goes Viral

Remarkable, and uncontrollable, forces lead to an online video going viral.  One of the key ingredients is a springboard in the form of a high-profile promoter, online bulletin board — or in the case of the video below — a rabid fan base.  Seek these out to spike views of your online marketing videos!

The day this video went viral, I was chatting on Facebook with a fellow long-time Pearl Jam fan just hours after she posted a video she recorded at the band’s October 27, 2013 concert in Baltimore.  Minute by minute, the YouTube view count rolled from the hundreds into the thousands, eventually topping out at more than 20,000 views.  Turns out a fellow fan posted the link on the band’s message board, tipping off others to the video.

Video of The Day: SpaceShipTwo’s Third Test Flight

This video, produced and published by Virgin Galactic, gives you the sensation of being in the cockpit, especially when SpaceShipTwo launches from its mothership after Virgin Galactic  completed its 3rd test from Spaceport America in the Mojave desert.

This entire piece is 4:47 of time well spent, but if you’re short of time, jump to 2:20 for the best section of this video!
