Video producer seeking experienced welding for how-to video production


My name is David Welch and I am a video producer and owner of a video production company in Valparaiso, Indiana named Shining Star Video Productions. We specialize in producing instructional or how-to videos that we mainly market over the internet. I am posting this message because we are seeking people accomplished in various fields who might want their very own professionally produced video produced at absolutely no cost to them. If we feel there is a market on the internet to sell your video, we will waive our normal production cost of approximately $5000. This is a very unusual offer from a video company for the right individual. The reason we are posting messages such as this on various forums and discussion groups, is that it is much more efficient and cheaper in contacting "experts" than mailing out letters to thousands of businesses around the country.

We designed this as a win-win situation and several "experts" have already taken advantage of it. We recently produced how to videos on arc welding, how to detail a vehicle and how to bake and decorate a wedding cake. We have been selling all of these quite successfully on the internet and would like to produce more titles. If you are interested in purchasing any of the above-mentioned titles, please let us know. We can ship them anywhere in the world. We also have various other titles in different stages of development such as Alzheimers disease, body piercing, tattooing, smoking cessation, custom coffee brewing etc. Do you have a special interest, knowledge, hobby or skill that others might want to pay to learn? Would you like to earn extra money by selling it to others?

Why would you want your own video produced? You might want your own professional video (or DVD) to help train your employees, as a video resume, to help advertise your business around the country, to market yourself etc. The only condition we have in waiving our fees is that you agree not to market it on the internet and compete against us. You are perfectly welcome to sell your own video (or DVD) out of your place of business or through ads in niche magazines.

This is not a scam or get-rich-quick scheme. This is a legitimate bonafide offer. I am a professional producer who has successfully owned my own business for 12 years. My partner and assistant director is a film school graduate from Columbia University in Chicago. We shoot all video in 3 chip digital and edit on the latest computer technology. We are not just a couple of crazy guys who bought some equipment and came up with a get-rich-quick scheme. If you would like to discuss our offer or request a demo video and brochure, please phone me at 219.531.6860 or email me at You might be glad you did. If we are out of the office on a shoot, please leave your name and contact information on our answering machine. BTW, we will be shooting video in Hawaii from Feb.9-19 so if we are a little late in responding to your call, that is the reason.

Sincerely, David L. Welch Owner/Producer Shining Star Video Productions Valparaiso, IN

Dear Sir,

We are definitely "legit". If you are interested in having a professional video produced at no cost to you, please either tell us more about your welding training and experience in an email or send us your resume to: Shining Star Video Productions, 83W 550N, Valparaiso, IN 46385. BTW, we already are selling a great video on arc welding. We are looking for a MIG or TIG welder or someone with experience welding with other than an arc welder.

David, do a Google search of Ernie Leimkuhler in the newsgroups....He stands on his own, probably one of the most knowledgeable welder/fabricator/instructors here. You'll see. There are so many of us that respect him so much, go cross-wise with him, we'll come out of the wood work and find ya. ;-)

Ernie is your guy. No doubt about it. He is held in the highest regard by everyone on this NG.

Ernie knows all, tells all and most importantly, tells it again to those of us who don't get it the first time. I would dare to put Ernie up against any and all of the "Fabricators" that are now so popular on TV. The Great NorthWest is a pretty far piece from Indiana, but it would be worth the trip, in my humble opinion. Hell, I'd just about be willing to drive from SE Tenn. for a little face time with 'ol Ernie. :)

Can you please explain us:

1) how do you market your videos over the Internet. I did not find a web site selling your videos. 2) Why are you looking for somebody to make ANOTHER welding video, since you are already offering a welding video in another thread. 3) What those $5000 exactly cover. Filming? Cutting and titling? DVD authoring? DVD pressing?

Thank you in advance.
