In 2015 it’s not gonna stop.

I’m convinced more than ever of the power of video in establishing your voice-over presence in the marketplace.  It can be something as simple as the video I posted yesterday on Vimeo:

Audiobook narration 12-28-14 from Dave Courvoisier on Vimeo.

(People who don’t even REALLY know what a voice actor actually does, love to watch the behind-the-scenes stuff.)

The power of today’s smartphone cameras BEGS us to shot, edit, and enhance improvised videos… and social media now demands it as a minimum buy-in for getting attention.

Read this article on the growing juggernaut of Instagram, an app you can’t afford to ignore.  Yes, it’s owned by Facebook, but as a standalone app, it’s growing faster than just about any other social media platform.

Here’s my shorlist of the other video apps that are so simple to use, and yet so social powerful.

Vine (6-second videos – incredibly loyal community)

Hyperlapse (video compliment to Instagram)

Capture (YouTube’s new smartphone record/post app)

Coming soon:  my favorite smartphone video editing apps.
