On February 24, 2018 members from the Tucson GLBT Chamber of Commerce and other volunteers came out for the Rainbow Build Day in Tucson Arizona to lend a hand. Being GLBT Tucson Chamber members and documenting previous Rainbow Builds we at Beyond Video wanted to come out again and film all the work and of course fun our members had during the build day.
Since today is National Trivia Day we at Beyond Video thought we’d share some trivia with you. The trivia is about Beyond Video and some Japanese trivia items. Since this is a trivial game, please give yourself a pat on the back for every correct answer. First prize in this trivia contest is a hearty congratulations from the staff at Beyond Video. We hope you have some fun and add to your vast store of trivia knowledge.

I was interviewed by a student, Kasandra, about our business. This came at a perfect time since we’ve been thinking about the types of services we provide and what direction we want to take our business. Many of the questions Kasandra asked helped me reflect on our business and what was important to us.
We decided we want to focus more on working with businesses and non profit organizations that want to share their stories through testimonial videos and promotional videos for social media and their websites. We’ll continue filming celebrations of life events as well.
“I then asked a question that would prove to be a ‘tough one’. “How many videos did Beyond Video make per month?” After a pause, Annyce explained that process of video production could take up to several months from beginning to end—not to mention the amount of time it would take to meet with the client and discuss all that would be included in the video. Though Annyce explained how there can be a flux in production at times, she did manage to give me an estimated average of two videos a month! I was impressed.”
“I then asked my final question, how did Annyce measure the success of a video? (Annyce really enjoyed answering this one). She first explained that it all depended on the type of project/video that was being produced. If it was a wedding video, it was easy to decide if it was good or not. The key, she explained, was whether the video “Hits you emotionally; if it makes you cry, laugh, makes you question, or makes you want to view more of it.” That was one way she put it. The second dealt more with the client and what they wanted from the video. She explained that she not only studied the video and how it made her react emotionally, but she also explained that she kept the client in mind; what they expect for the final product. And for her and her husband to go beyond that; to go beyond their expectations.”
As our business moves forward we want to devote more of our time to promoting businesses, creating educational and training videos and in capturing celebrations of life be it an anniversary, birthday, reunion, funeral, or a memorial celebration.
On this new blog site I hope to share what projects Beyond Video has been working on, share tips and ideas as well as get your ideas and suggestions on what you’d like to read about.
Here are some of the projects that we’ve been working on with businesses. Our major focus and direction we want to continue to take is to work with Businesses and non profit organizations.

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s to come in future blog posts.
We want to welcome Kasandra to our Beyond Video family. Kasandra is a student who interviewed me about our company. She had such great questions and insights that I thought it would interesting to share her perspective of our business. I’ll be writing my next post about the interview and Kasandra’s perceptions about our company Beyond Video.
This year we’ve been documenting the Rainbow House at Habitat for Humanity Tucson. Tons of information about this project. Here’s a link about the build.
