Today Marek Land and Livestock experienced something they have never had before; a video shoot for John Deere Financial. A few weeks ago, my dad recieved a call from his college friend asking if his marketing firm could use our century farm, and we agreed. They brought in a production company, actors, models, a make-up artist, and employees from Two Rivers Marketing and John Deere. At one point in time, there were 22 cars at our farm. One important aspect was the new equipment that was brought from the local John Deere dealer. To say the least, it was busy around here.
It was awesome to see a video shoot, but I also loved seeing my dad and grandpa getting their make-up done and being videoed for an interview about our century farm. John Deere did a great job of highlighting the farm life along with the importance of family.
Another neat thing was to see the way a video has to be put together. Shots are repeated and scripts are said over and over again. Photos, videos, even audio clips were done multiple times to ensure that they had enough content. A sunset was recorded last night without the actors, so when their was no sunset tonight, the actors shot in front of a green screen. Being able to see the process of a commercial being made was awesome and I'm glad I got to observe this once in a life time experience. Plus I got my make-up done, which is always a bonus.
