Video Promotions

In an effort to support our business community, the El Sobrante Chamber of Commerce is offering to host videos promoting your place of business. We are asking that you shoot a quick video, using your cell phone camera or a video camera, which describes your business and what you offer. We ask that this video be approximately a minute long, and follow the guidelines provided below. As an example, here is a video shot by Chicago Pizza With a Twist, which we are now hosting on the Chamber website (scroll down to the middle of the page):

Please feel free to send your video to my email address below and we will get your video online as soon as possible. If you have any questions, or would like some help with your video, please let me know by calling my cell number below.

Guidelines for making videos from your phone:

– Landscape mode, not portrait (hold the phone or camera sideways)
– Have a product, logo or storefront in the shot
– Make sure there isn’t a lot of noise in the background
– The light should be coming from in front to illuminate the face of the presenter
– The camera/cameraperson shouldn’t be directly in front, which can cause a shadow on the presenter
