Help is on the way.  We’ve just finished putting together our business model for real estate video content producers that want to participate in our new Club Real Estate Video.  There are an assortment of levels for participation depending on the needs, desire, and budget of the member.

  1. Re VOICE-OVER

    Dear Client,

    I invite you to please visit my website, http://www.adambehr.com so you can hear my samples, especially under trailer,commercial,narration,animation and you can hear either my US,International accent, Mid-Atlantic, British or many others. I work in 15 or more dialects and can do the real estate tour narrations in any one of these according to the clients preference.

    I do a lot of international work and my voice is perfect for the kind of material you describe.
    I can deliver the voiceover for your project from my home protools studio in any format necessary (wav,mp3, aiff,etc), with no studio fees.

    I am usually able to have a 2-24 hour turnaround for most jobs. ISDN is affordable and within easy reach, but these days I mostly use Source-connect as the minutes are free for all users.
    My rates are reasonable, flexible and I always try to fit in with my client’s budget. Paypal is preferred .
    I look forward to hearing from you .

    best wishes, Adam Behr (604) 218-6049

  2. I was going to delete the above comment spamming for voiceover business but I’ll leave it in for those that want to price compare. Please note that 144 minutes of professional narration/voiceover in three languages is included in the pricing for our premium package (thats 432 total voiceover minutes).


  3. Nice service. I first read about it today on ActiveRain blogs.

    Plays back just fine with almost no buffering ( im on a 512mbps connection from Dubai, UAE)

    Just a couple of observations if you like:
    – The videos are encoded very intelligently – i.e I can see that just a hint of pixelating, but yet they manage to play smooth
    – Maybe using fades between scenes is not a good idea, as there’s artefacts showing up during the transition

    – Some interlace artefacts are visible, should be de interlaced before encoding.

    I supposed this should be advice for the end clients and not the service itself.

    Wish you every success!
    Regards.

    Thanks for the gret feedback. It’s nice to see international folks hanging out on AR. Large, non bufferng video is one of our original design criteria for our infrastructure.

    Best of luck to you too and thanks for stopping by.


  5. I took a look at the videos on the side panel and was curious if they were professionally done or if the Realtor downloaded her own files?

    They seem quite nice and very impressive.


  6. Sacramento Real Estate: The videos in the sidebar are professionally done and update “automagically” from our website. We are just starting to open up our platform to outside videographers. Thank you so much for the kind words.
