As many of you know, we recently filmed our very first comedic short film! (If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can view it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEgJPsqgO0w).
To create this video, Yolanda, Joe and I wanted to combine the experience and professionalism of Mitchell Dentistry along with our sense of humor and ability to have a little fun. As a result, the final video is entertaining and conveys our messages to our patients. Not only did the video turn out great, but also we had a blast making it. We thought it would be fun to share with you what went into making the short video.
The first step in the process was to create a script that showcased what Mitchell Dentistry offers to our patients. Many times patients come into our office and are amazed by our quality of care and customer service. To this we always think, “What did you expect?” And, so, the tagline for the movie was born. Once, the script was finalized we found a videographer who we knew shared our level of professionalism and our willingness to be creative.
On the day of the photo shoot we closed the office and invited a few staff members and some of our longstanding patients to participate in the film. We had to be careful that we were quiet while the filming was taking place and everyone did such a wonderful job remembering their lines that we only had to do a few takes.
I think my favorite part of the entire process was watching behind the scenes as Yolanda, Joe and a few other members of our staff filmed their scenes. Rebeca was a little nervous about being in front of the camera, but she loosened right up once we put her in that witch costume! I couldn’t stop laughing watching Joe wield a drill over one of our kind patients who agreed to participate in the video! And, who can forget that wonderful bit of cinematic drama involving Darth Vader?
Thanks again to all who participated, we can’t wait to get started on the sequel!
