Reel to Real – Video Marketing Package for Speakers

Date: January 27, 2022


We are thrilled to offer members the opportunity to obtain a completed sizzle reel or product offering video!

Chuck Gallagher of Primeau Productions explains this program.

It’s an ongoing challenge for every professional speaker: to get better gigs, you need better video. To get better video, you need better gigs!

NSA NYC is here to help with an opportunity to produce a compelling video that highlights exactly who you serve and what problem you solve – in a way that will get you hired.

  • Is your current reel outdated? (as in, older than 2019?!) The world has changed. You’ve pivoted, and want to highlight more relevant topics, new product offerings, digital vs. in-person delivery options.
  • Do you have video footage and photos but lack the time or expertise to edit them together into a cohesive marketing tool? 
  • Do you need additional footage to weave your existing footage together and convey your message in a compelling way?
  • Are you an emerging speaker and need high quality footage to get you started?

We’ve got you covered with Reel to Real 2022: a new demo reel at an unbelievable value that will convert to real gigs.


What is included? 

NSA member and CSP, Chuck Gallagher, and his team from Primeau Productions will provide complete video production including:

  • A one-hour Zoom consult with each participant to strategize and prioritize goals for the shoot and guidance in preparing a shooting script.
  • A three-camera shoot on green screen with professional lighting & sound
  • 30 minutes of camera time on set
  • Free stock B-roll footage. Participants can also provide their own B-roll for inclusion.
  • Help in storyboarding content on the day of shooting
