We are the guys that did the original Star Service (Baton Rouge) video, then multiplied that effectiveness to Hays Service, Total Comfort, H. E. Neumann, Bachman, Vasey, United Mechanical, Donahue, and Campbell among others.

Most of these companies still use the film as we created it ten years ago - because it is still effective!

That is one hell of a return on investment.

This is what we started with...
We can re-imagine your logo in 3-D!

(225) 413-6051 Talk to Ted Baldwin
  • HVAC HD Preventive Maintenance film features Mike Miller (Star Service) as your HVAC Consultant Spokesman.
  • Opening custom 3-D animation of your company logo
  • Your company name throughout the narration
  • Your address, e-mail, web address and phone number(s)
  • Closing 3-D animation of your logo, with your company name, number, address, web address superimposed at end.
  • Uploaded as a YouTube HD film, for placement on your website
Conversion of video to Internet HD
Your YouTube account will let you analyze the viewer statistics, so you can keep a record of viewership.

Your film can be delivered on DVD as well, so you can show it in any sales situation or meeting where Internet is not available.

To help you with your budgeting we have developed a tiered system.

Level One  Basic program, logo and narration customization
Level Two   Logo, narration, company logos, location shooting
Level Three  Logos, narration, company logos in action, location shooting, one staff interview, one customer testimonial

Level One
  • We will place your name three times in the narration
  • Create 3-D opening and closing from your logo
  • Insert six shots of your logo, (We will use an actor, working in your company shirt and hat, for example) in the program.
  • This option does not include travel to your location or interviews.
Level Two
  • We will place your name nine times in the narration, and insert 12 shots of your logo, either on a shirt or hat, in the program.
  • One minute of script will be written about your company and added to the program in one segment. This could be about special services, awards, a description of your locations, or some other aspect of your business you want to highlight.
  • 3-D open and close.
  • If you provide us with professional video of your business, we will add it to the brochure in place of some of the 12 logo shots currently in the program. If you want to send us a shirt and hat, we will utilize an actor to represent your company. (slight extra fee for actor)
If you provide travel expenses to your location, we will shoot the film clips for you.

Customer testimonials are 1500.00 additional each.
Level Three

We will place your name at least twelve times in the narration, and insert 18 shots of your logo and company pictures in the program to make it look like your exclusive production.

You may have us travel to your location to get the shots (travel expenses not included in price).
One minute of script will be written about your company and added to the program in one block. This could be about special services, awards, a description of your locations, or some other aspect of your business you want to highlight. 3-D opening and closing.

This level allows for shooting two interviews; 1) a customer testimonial at their location and 2) a company officer at the HVAC office.

Six clips of your company president or spokesperson talking about your services will replace the Bob Work portion of the Star video.

Additional testimonials or company personnel (30-45 seconds finished) are 1000.00 each.

Travel, not included, is intended for one full day of shooting (fly in, one night stay, fly out). You may request our cameraman to remain on location additional days to get particular shots, but there may be a per diem incurred. Setup of equipment requires a certain amount of time. Travel to locations to show particular work should be well planned, to maximize time available.

Full Custom Level this is a completely new 8 minute version featuring your people exclusively, patterned after the Star Video. We will travel to your location, interview your principals and customers, and videotape your people and resources in action. The only additional cost is travel. You will own this film outright, and as such can make any changes you please.

This is the best long term investment and most effective use of sales media, and though it is more expensive in the short term, it's long term benefits are undeniable.
