How to Post a Video on Pinterest

When you hear Pinterest, the first thing that comes to mind is often pictures. But the content sharing service lends itself to all visual mediums and there are thousands of videos on Pinterest, too. With over 25 million users, brands recognize that engaging content can lead to purchases — especially as 81% of U.S. consumers trust information from Pinterest.

While  you can share your video to Pinterest immediately after uploading it on Youtube, what happens if you created your Pinterest board some time after you uploaded your video?

Here’s a step by step guide to solving that problem:

 1. Log into Pinterest, click the add button, and then scroll down to “Add from a website.”

2. Next you will need to copy the url of the video you want to use from YouTube and paste it into the “add a pin from a website” box that shows up.

3. Pick your video thumbnail and the board you want to add your video

 4. Fill out your description using hashtags and pin it!

Web Video Production

There is nothing like the power of video for communication, and the Internet is more effective a vehicle for delivery than any other outlet out there.

Web video is prevalent, pervasive, persistent …whatever you want to call it. It’s everywhere! Think about it — when you go to a webpage, and there’s text and a video box, where does your eye go first? It’s human nature. You see the video.

One of the reasons it’s so powerful is that you can jam-pack a lot of information into one web video. Two minutes of web video can say more than two giant walls of text. And, the point is, no one’s going to sit and read a wall of text, let alone two of them.

Why iQuarius For Web Video Production?

Of course, web video production brings with it certain format and time constraints. It has a specific standard for maximum effect that differs from traditional media. From our professional video and audio recording capabilities (including green screen production and on-location shooting) to our award-winning post-production teams, we have a handle on all your video production — whether you have an existing message or whether you’re starting from scratch.

Don’t let the small size of our company fool you – we’ve got big ideas. Let’s get together and talk about how to get your company’s message across with web video.

 

Mastering

This is the final quality-control step that takes your audio as a whole and ensures that:

  • It sounds natural and balanced
  • Has definition
  • Is optimized for the format it’s going out on

A little mastering skill and artistry from the audio department at iQuarius Media can give your audio that major-label, professional sound. We can be the difference that takes your mix from OK to good, or from good to great.

Any studio can have quality mastering gear (which we do). Our brand of experienced ears, however, can’t be duplicated. Since the mastering stage creates the definitive copy of your recording that reaches the end user — we think it should be perfect. We have the tools, training, and patience to create the highest standard of quality for you.

Chris Domingo Completes Audio Post for Feature Film

Chris Domingo

On his 25th birthday, David Brachman decides he’s going to change his life over the next two years or kill himself if he can’t. So goes the storyline of The Last Two Years of David Brachman, a feature film currently in post-production and slated for release in 2012. Director/writer/producer Marc Casilli approached iQuarius Media to help with audio post-production, marking another feature-length film credit for iQuarius Media.

Shot in Central Florida over the summer of 2010 with a crew comprised primarily of current and previous University of Central Florida (UCF) film students, The Last Two Years of David Brachman is Casilli’s MFA thesis for UCF’s Entrepreneurial Digital Cinema program.

When the project arrived at iQuarius Media, audio engineer Chris Domingo got to work on audio post-production over the next several weeks: noise reduction, custom sound design, adding backgrounds and creating foley sound effects — all the while maintaining the integrity and improving upon the sound quality of the existing dialogue. Domingo, a perfectionist, found the audio post-production work enjoyable and challenging: “The number one challenge was making the [existing] ADR fit with backgrounds.” This type of audio post-production is meticulous work, requiring technical know-how but, more importantly, a sophisticated ear.

The film’s director would sit with Domingo for hours at a time as they pored over the audio post-production tracks.  When he was alone in the studio, at any given moment, Domingo would be focused on his tools, blind to the world around him; his computer screen would be an organized chaos of multi-colored pixels and tracks, each representing just milliseconds of sound that he was digitally manipulating. He hears nothing else as he works.

For iQuarius Media, an audio post-production project is a welcome addition to the office atmosphere. From behind the closed doors of the audio department studio, sounds of dialogue spill out into the video production room next door, and even the low-end booms of background music vibrate the back offices, where administration and the Internet marketing team stare intently at their computer screens. Of the noise, president  of iQuarius, Gregory Born, noted that it’s better than silence any day, saying, “I’m happy to see the motion picture industry alive and well in Central Florida, and happy that iQuarius Media can be a part of it.


Enjoy some of these before and after clips from the film.

Sprint Unveils Their First $100 4G Android Phone: The Samsung Conquer 4G

Mobile media development — which includes apps, video, audio, and other interactive media for Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS, etc. — and SMS marketing are more than just taking off, they’re launching full-out assaults from all sides. The next big weapon to be unleashed is the availability of 4G-capable phones, able to handle more intensive media, at lower and lower prices.

At the end of August Sprint unveiled its 25th 4G-capable phone, but the Samsung Conquer 4G is the first of its kind with its starting price of just under $100 with a new 2-year contract. Sprint’s other 4G-capable phones start at the $200 mark.

The phone runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box, and its low-res front-facing shooter clocks in at 1.3 megapixels. This is where the specs start reflecting the lower price: the processor is a single-core 1GHz and the 3.5-inch touchscreen resolution only stands at 320×480, though many recent reviews point out that it’s plenty bright enough to read clearly. Other specs include 3.2 rear-facing shooter (with flash and zoom in tow) and Sprint ID. So the Samsung Conquer is no beast by any means, but the draw of 4G for that kind of price will no doubt be huge for consumers. For media producers and marketers, this means a growing audience of users increasingly ready to consume bigger, better, brighter media from them.
