Live Music Video and Live Music Streaming from Eyedea Worx

We here at Eyedea Worx love live music and are happy to work with so many talented musicians.

We sponsor as many music festivals and events as we can, and had a great time at last weekend’s Higher Ground Music Festival in Denver. Over two days we got to see many great live sets from bands around the country, and took TONS of video for you to enjoy! You can find the full playlist from the 2015 Higher Ground Music Festival below:

We took video for new bands we had never seen before and were happy to meet like Calliope Musicals and Me Like Bees but also local bands we’ve worked with in the past like High Five, Red Stinger, and King Cardinal.

Eyedea Worx is also a title sponsor for Mountain Size Presents, Live at Evergroove. A monthly live show from Evergroove Studio in Evergreen, CO, the broadcast streams LIVE as the action happens and has welcomed local Denver acts and national (and international) touring bands alike.

Last night, Evergroove welcomed Texas rock band Jack Kerowax for a live streaming show, and you re-watch the live stream at Youtube here:

Make The Most of Your Branded Promotional Merchandise

branded promotional products

Promotion is important for any kind of business; whether you’ve been around for years or are just starting, getting your brand into the minds of future customers is what keeps a business thriving.

This is why it is so important to have great branded merchandise to promote your brand and make sure that people think of you first when in the market for your products.

Since the average person needs to see a brand seven times before buying, here are a few tips for making the most out of your custom branded promotional products:

Quality is Important

Promotional merchandise with your logo on it is a great way to leave an impression with a potential client, so it’s best to have something that will highlight your business’ high quality. This might take some more time and a bit more of an initial investment, but it will certainly pay off when a great-looking promotional item leads to clients that already know you are the best choice.

Stand Out and Be Flashy!

People who attend trade shows are handed countless promotional items throughout a convention, so it’s much better to take some time and think about what will stand out from the crowd. Basic items like pens, key chains, and flyers are an easy start, but what will really get some attention? Branded speakers, golf balls, and headphones are all items that will leave a huge impression on your new customers.

Offer a Diverse Swag Bag

“Swag bags” are a great way to offer a variety of different promotional giveaways to new customers. By placing 3 or 4 well-chosen items in a branded bag, you can be sure to have at least 1 item that will get a positive response and get your brand seen. Notion Worx offers over 500,000 promotional products to choose from, so there are plenty of choices to brand some great swag!

Include Contact Information with a Business Card or Download Card

When putting together a swag bag, it’s a good idea to include some contact information so that a promotional item will directly lead to your phone ringing with new business. Business cards are an inexpensive and classic way to get your contact information out there, but there are other options that might make you stand out even more. Download cards are business cards with a unique code that directs people to your website and allows them to enter the code to download whatever exclusive content you want, or card-shaped flash drives are a way to load the data directly onto it!

Make it Your Own!

Whatever kind or quantity of branded merchandise you may choose, you have the opportunity to personalize it to be exactly what you want. So let your imagination run wild and choose items that represent the ideals you want potential customers to know about you.

Stand Out And Give The Film Festivals What They Want!

Thinking of submitting your independent film to film festivals? Here are a few quick pointers from some of the top film festivals and organizations on what they are looking for and what makes films stand out.
 

• Films that have original and interesting storytelling and diverse voices
• Films that push the limits of style and narrative
• Good films with interesting points of view
• Well-written, original and compelling screenplays
 

These tips may seem like a no-brainer, but think about how many times you’ve seen the same storyline? They really want filmmakers who have a fresh view on storytelling and who truly think outside of the box.
 

If you are just starting out, film experts suggest starting with short films first then working your way into feature films. The reason for this is to keep your costs of film production low and also to network and create buzz around you before you move onto features. As far as short films and features films go, each festival has their own stipulations and preferences for each of those submissions so be sure to research your festivals of interest to make sure that you are in-line for what kind of material they are looking for. Here is a list of some popular film festivals and film markets to consider submission to: http://www.sundance.org/,http://tiff.net/,http://www.filmindependent.org/, http://www.ifp.org
