Using the Power of the Crowd . . .
Who knows you better than your family and friends, right? So why not capture those intimate and personal moments as seen from their eyes? Enter . . . ‘My Flip Wedding,’ a DIY (Do It Yourself) service unlike any other. Here’s how it works: Raleigh Event DJ supplies wedding couples with easy to use, high-quality, video cameras. The Bride and groom then give the cameras to family & friends who use and pass them around throughout the whole wedding event. The cameras get returned to Raleigh Event DJ and they handle all the behind-the-scenes logistics.
After newlyweds return from their honeymoon, they simply sign into their Storymix account online and choose a movie theme, select music, add titles & captions, and pick their favorite moments. From there, the creative experts at Storymix Media take over and work their magic to produce a Hollywood-Quality keepsake movie that is more personal, more interesting, than what you might obtain from a high-priced videographer.
Why ‘My Flip Wedding?’
In 2010, brides who hired videographer services spent on average $1,152 nationally and $1,123 in the Raleigh Metro area according to Shane McMurray, CEO & Founder at The Wedding Report, Inc. It’s no surprise to industry professionals that today’s economy has couples frugally stretching their budgets to create a memorable wedding experience, without burdening themselves with a massive bill. But that often means making tough choices like cutting back on the essentials, doing without the niceties and taking advantage of DIY alternatives.
As Raleigh Event DJ's owner Brad Junell observes, “By the time brides and grooms come to us, if they haven’t already hired a videographer, their budget can’t afford the high price tag.” Junell feels “that’s a shame considering how much time, money & emotion goes into planning and preparation.”
“That’s where we come in” says Mike Fisher CEO Storymix Media, “we noticed the popularity of Flip-cameras and smart-phones at weddings and envisioned a better way for brides and grooms to capture all that video, without the hassle of trying to track down all those devices after the fact.” And according to Ariane Fisher Creative Director at Storymix Media, “even if a bride could get a hold of all of those devices, they still have the dilemma of needing the tools and having the ability to assemble that footage into a polished movie – so we developed the ‘Wedding Mix’ array of video services.” Whether its Wedding Mix Video services, Photo Slideshows, Fusion Video, etc., Storymix provides consumers and businesses with professional services to effortlessly obtain premium results from their existing media at affordable prices.
A Marriage of Two Wedding Merchants
When asked how the two companies partnered, Junell explains: “I stumbled across a comment Ariane made to a story by Paul Pannone,” industry leader in investigative news, information and reporting at eWedNewz.com, “so I checked Storymix’s website and saw they provided video slideshow services – something our Raleigh Event DJ website was very much in need of at the time.” While working on a slideshow project, Junell looked further into all the other Storymix products and was intrigued with their ‘Wedding Mix’ Video services. “After having such a wonderful experience working with the folks at Storymix Media on two different projects, I recognized the Wedding Mix services would have tremendous value to our customers. So I began communicating with the Fishers about Raleigh Event DJ offering their product, branded as ‘My Flip Wedding,’ directly to our customers.”
While working out the details, Junell recognized that the ‘My Flip Wedding’ collaboration could be enjoyed by a greater number of wedding couples and suggested that Storymix create an ‘affiliate’
“To me it’s all about customer service” says Junell. “I realized Storymix Media had an amazing product and it was definitely something I knew our customers would want, need and could afford. Life is short and memories fade. The thought of couples not being able to re-live their wedding day years from now, not seeing the moments they missed because their attention was focused elsewhere, to not be able to see loved ones having fun who might have since passed away – simply because they assume video options are too expensive really breaks my heart. Storymix has a fantastic product at a fantastic price and I am thrilled to be able to offer it to our customers and also help Storymix reach new customers at the same time. It’s a WIN:WIN:WIN endeavor in my book!”
In addition to offering customers various wedding video services directly through their website, Storymix Media offers three different Affiliate-Partner options to wedding vendors interested in providing their customers with value-added video services like Raleigh Event DJ’s ‘My Flip Wedding.’
During the week of September 12, 2011, Raleigh Event DJ’s Brad Junell will be in Las Vegas with Ariane Fisher of Storymix Media for the American Disc Jockey Association’
