Trading Depot’s Web Marketing Manager, Phil Stears describes what it was like to step in front of the cameras.
Today was a bit of an unusual experience for us here at Trading Depot. We were having our office and warehouse filmed along with interviews of both myself and our Marketing Executive, Warren Ludford.
It has been a long time since we shot promotional footage on the premises for our YouTube channel and back then it was mainly of our stock. Today was certainly the first on-camera interviews either of us have been part of and we were keen to do a good job.(No pressure of course!)
Trustpilot Ambassador Program
The video content was being shot by Trustpilot as part of their ‘Ambassador Program’ which Trading Depot is extremely proud to be part of. This program showcases the advantages of implementing a customer review system by drawing on the real-life experiences of companies who are using Trustpilot in their day-to-day businesses.
Let The Cameras Roll
Although I know Trading Depot pretty well after three years working here, I must admit I was pretty nervous to step in front of the camera. The office reached over 24 degrees at some points as we were filming and I was quite relieved when it was Warren’s turn in the spotlight.
I’m sure the finished video will turn out great but lets just say there is probably enough footage for a lengthy ‘blooper reel’ too!
But on a serious note though our thanks go to Nico Lutkins from Trustpilot who did her best to make us feel relaxed throughout the interview (and didn’t laugh at us too much when we tripped over our words.)
And to Graham Thomas from Thomas Marena Creative who now has the unenviable task of editing together the footage into a finished and polished video.
We’re very much looking forward to seeing how the footage turns out.
