Video Stories: You Know You Need ‘Em. Now What?

In this webinar from Rich Tolsma of Tolsma Productions, we’re going to hit on a wide range of topics beginning with what makes a good story. We’ll discuss how to get your project off the ground beginning with what questions you should be asking yourself. Then, making a decision about whether to tackle your project yourself or seek professional services. If using professionals, how do you go about finding the right company to work with?
