Real Estate :: Lifestyle Film :: “Best Kept Secret” :: 711 Highview Road, East Peoria IL 61611 :: Adam Merrick

 

In 2015, Adam Merrick contacted us to come to Peoria to shoot a condo for him.  It was one of the highest priced properties in Peoria and it had been on the market, listed by other agents, for a long time with no interest.  Adam made the decision to have us fly up there and shoot one of our lifestyle films for the condo.  In less than a week after the video went live, the condo sold because of the buzz generated by the video.

Fast-forward a year and we were back in Peoria for another real estate shoot with Adam.  We decided to take a different approach with this film since Adam wanted to target this home towards a family with kids.  Due to the amazing success we’d had in the past with kids in our videos, we decided to try it again for Adam.  We managed to find a very talented actress in the area and she took our concept and ran with it.  She killed every scene and really helped add some personality to the video that we’re sure buyers will really love.

Since the seller wanted to focus on the amazing view of downtown Peoria from the home, we made sure we featured it in every room of the house.  By combining Madalyn’s amazing personality with a fun script and amazing shots of all the rooms in the house, we were able to produce a fantastic video for Adam to use in his marketing of the home.

Real Estate Lifestyle Film :: “A House For You” :: 18911 Apian Way, Lutz FL 33558 :: The Duncan Duo

This video is definitely one of our top 5 real estate home films. I love it. After doing these videos for almost 3 years now, I have learned something important: I can write dialog for kids like it is nobody’s business. I also learned another important lesson: writing dialog is only half the battle. It is also equally as important to have actors that can pull off the video and act just like you want them to act. Fortunately, both of those things came together perfectly for this video.

We decided to use our friends, The Ganey Family, from Orlando again for this house. Each time we use them, they nail it. They have been a part of some of my favorite home films, so I love bring them on board every chance I get. This time, I wanted to see how well the kids could pull off a film by themselves. In the past, I have used kids to sell homes, but each time, it was a kid by themselves, so this time I wanted to do something different. The idea here is to have the “pesky” little brother trying to be a part of the video the older sister is doing. Needless to say, it worked like a charm. These guys nailed it and gave me more than I could even ask for. It helped create the perfect video for the home that we feel showed off the great features of the house, and also created a fun video for potential buyers to watch. What more could you ask for.

Real Estate Film :: “Ad-ing it All Up” :: 8447 Woburn Ct, Windermere, FL 34786 :: Andrey Bustamante

Real Estate expert, Andrey Bustamante, is a good friend of Andrew Duncan and when he heard about all the success Andrew and the Duncan Duo team were having in Tampa, FL with our videos, he decided to give us a call and try it out for himself.  We have had such great success in other markets using kids in our videos to sell homes that we immediately thought of our friends, the Ganey Family. Casting a real brother and sister for the part was a no-brainer, especially when they are as talented as these two are.  In the end, we created a great video with them and needless to say, Andrey and his team weren’t disappointed with the results.

When we come up with concepts for our real estate lifestyle films, we always try to think of creative ways of telling potential buyers about the home without simply spouting off information to them.  There is no greater instance of that than this film.  We took two awesome kids and their mom and created a script where they were able to tell potential buyers all about the house without the buyer feeling like they were being fed information.  We made a fun, enjoyable film that allowed buyers to learn all about the home in a unique and enjoyable way.

Listing Presentation Film – Misty Soldwisch Real Estate Team – Des Moines, IA

Misty SOLDwisch, the number one real estate agent in the Des Moines IA area, saw the listing presentation film we created for the Duncan Duo and invited us up to do the same for her. Since the Misty SOLDwisch team is one of the top agents in the midwest and the #1 agent in the Des Moines area, we knew we needed to create something that represented the services she offered to her clients.

We spent 4 days in Des Moines following Misty and her team around, talking to them and capturing footage around the Des Moines, IA area.  We also talked to some of her past clients and interviewed them for the video.  We felt like having them tell about their experience dealing with Misty and her team would be a great approach.  Our biggest goal was to present a big-time real estate agent with a small town feel.

In the end, we created a great video that tells the story of what sets Misty and her team apart from other agents, complete with compelling testimonials that bring personal experiences alive in the video.

Real Estate Lifestyle Film – 3135 S. Highway A1A #401 – Melbourne Beach, FL 32951- “Weekend Getaway” :: Andrey Bustamante

With each real estate video we film, we always look for a fun, unique way to tell a story using the property. This was our first video for Andrey Bustamante, a very popular real estate agent in Orlando FL. When we spoke to him about the property, we knew it was a high end condo, which was a first for us. Andrey told us that he was marketing this condo to people in the Orlando area as a property for them to purchase as a “weekend getaway.”

Our concept for this property was simple, but perfect. Our goal was to show a couple in normal, everyday life on a Monday morning, daydreaming of the fun they had over the weekend. To pull this off, we brought in our veteran real estate actors, Liz Day and John Hardy. They pulled everything off perfectly. They completely ‘sold’ the high-end aspects of this condo and as always made the production even better.

A lot of times, real estate agents ask us what the benefits are of having a real estate film with actors in them. Why not just shoot a normal real estate film that shows the house and property? We feel like this video is the perfect example of why our approach works so well for agents. Not only does this film show the property and the surrounding city, but it also shows the lifestyle that owning a place like this can provide.

A huge thanks to Andrey Bustamante for inviting us down to Melbourne Beach to film our first ever high end beach front condo. It was a great experience getting to work with him for the first time and we are looking forward to doing more work with him in the future.
