Matterport Training Video Wanted: $1,000

We Get Around seeks a Matterport training video and will pay $1,000 for the “buy-out” of the video we like best.

This training video is the first step in creating the We Get Around Network Training Academy.

Our vision is to crowdsource the creation of a library of “how to videos” to:

✓ help new Matterport Pros succeed faster
✓ decide if buying a Matterport Camera is right for them

We Get Around anticipates seeking videos on other topics too. (We are often asked if we have Matterport training videos.)

What We Seek in this Video

✓ Up to 1 hour of real-time video of a Matterport Spaces 3D Tour scan capturing process in a residence.
✓Show and Tell: narrated in real-time in English explaining what is happening and why
✓ No text or sub-titles (We Get Around will transcribe and add sub-titles)

Why

We will make this video available to Members of the We Get Around Network Forum at no charge to help Members:

✓ help new Matterport Pros succeed faster
✓ decide if buying a Matterport Camera is right for them

I will make my decision on which video I would like to buy based on this 100 point scale:

✓ Up to 50 points for authentic, real-time video with “best practices” narration in English (what you are doing and why). We are not seeking a slick production-value video. While it may be dull or boring to watch up to an hour of Matterport scanning shot with one camera and no edits, we really do want to show as real as possible, what the Matterport scanning experience is like in real-time with narration
✓ UP to 10 points for length: 1 point for each 6 minutes
✓ Up to 10 points for a WOW factor: “I want to watch the entire video.”
✓ Up to 10 points: no logo, signage or identification for the Pro, real estate agent or location
✓ Up to 10 points for post production (such as a two-camera shoot or iPad screen grab inserted into the video)
✓ Up to 10 points for the quality of the video recording experience (using a GoPro, smartphone, 360º video, DSLR or other video recording solution are all fine: aiming the camera at the floor for no reason; not so good)

Though our intent is to “buy-out” a video, we reserve the right not to buy a video, if no videos receive a score 70 or higher.

Timing

To be considered, please submit one video by Saturday, 10 June 2017 (Please see this We Get Around Training Video Submission Form).

Payment

If We Get Around selects your video, you will receive your choice of:

✓ USD $1,000 via PayPal, or
✓ 24 months of We Get Around Network Standard Membership ($1,176 value) provided that you include on your invoice that:

✓ a “buy-out” of video, including copyright (and moral rights) and that a .mp4 file is provided
✓ You have a model release for any people appearing in the video
✓ You have a location release for the use of the space
✓ You agree not to make the video public
✓ If you are in the United States We Get Around (TERRIFIC! Inc.) will send you or your company a 1099
✓ You are a Member of the We Get Around Network Forum at the time of your video submission (free)
✓ You are not an employee of Matterport at the time of your video submission
✓ You have the authority – and ownership – to transfer the rights of the video to We Get Around

While we anticipate providing access to this video free to We Get Around Network Forum Members for at least six months, we reserve the right to use the video in other ways such as restricting access to only to Basic, Standard and Premium Members.

It’s possible that we may offer to buy more than one video. We will not display a video publicly, unless we have the “buy-out” of the video.

My decision is final.

Again, this training video is the first step in creating the We Get Around Network Training Academy. Our vision is to crowdsource the creation of a library of “how to videos” to:

✓ help new Matterport Pros succeed faster
✓ decide if buying a Matterport Camera is right for them

We Get Around anticipates seeking videos on other topics too. (We are often asked if we have Matterport training videos.)

If you have questions, please post them to the We Get Around Network Forum so that others can benefit from the answers too.

Best,

Dan

Hi All,

Imagine earning a $1,000 for doing what you are already doing - scanning! That's double-dipping!

And, since this is a real-time video, it's pretty straight forward.

Got questions?

Hi All,

Here's some inspiration about how you might do this real-time video shoot while scanning. Your video does NOT have to be shot with a 360º video camera. A GoPro would work in this scenario too.

Hi All,

I am hearing crickets on this post. Perhaps that's a good thing for the one Member that reached out to me saying he was excited to create this video. Might be a fast $1,000 for him.

Of course, I would to receive many videos to choose from ... ...

Another option for shooting this video might be a GoPro chest mount Harness.

Feelin' Lonely,

Hi All,

Production Idea:

✓ have a friend use your smartphone to shoot the video of you scanning .... (make sure you have your smartphone charged and enough space for this long video.)

Hi All,

Another Production Idea:

✓ have a friend use a GoPro Camera to shoot the video of you scanning ....

When I started scanning in July 2014 with my Matterport Camera, I wished there was a video like this to show me the way to succeed faster.

I could imagine that those researching Matterport would like to see a real-time scanning video.

True?

I attempted the GoPro with a Chesty mount yesterday. At 1h20m my disk was full and the scan was not complete. I'm going to try at a different scan next week with a designated camera person if all goes well. :-)

At least one Pro asked me if s/he could send an early attempt to review and critique.

Yes. That offer is good for anyone that I would like preliminary feedback.

While I would prefer questions in this post, feel free to Private Message me too.

Best,

Hi All,

Talked with another Member today (28 April 2017) that expressed interest in creating a video of their scanning workflow.

What a great way to give back and maybe gets some $$$$$

Hi All,

I am hearing crickets from Matterport Pros interested in this $1,000.

That's probably great news for the two Pros that have reached out to me so far: a shoot-out between two Pros for $1,000 in easy money.

Kinda hoping that you are inspired by this opportunity and strap on a GoPro while you are creating a Matterport 3D Tour and giving color commentary. Please see my original post for complete details.

I could imagine that $1,000 is more than you make on most of your 3D Tours – so, I am hoping that these $$$$$ are motivation to shoot video. And, you don't edit it. One long real-time shoot. Easy! And, if the cash doesn't motivate you – please remember the time you were thinking about buying a Matterport Camera - or just bought one - and wished you could have watched an hour of realtime Matterport scanning to help you decide if you wanted to buy a Matterport Camera or help you succeed faster.

Anyway.

If you got question, feel free to post them here or Private Message me.

Best,

Dan

It's starting to look like a horse race? (Did someone say, "Kentucky Derby"?)

A third Matterport Pro has let me know to expect a video.

Always Dreaming of a great Matterport Spaces video to help peeps decide if they want to buy a Matterport Pro Camera or to succeed faster when they do buy one.

Best,

Dan

Hi All,

It is official.

We received the first video. (And, hopefully not the last.)

The sound of crickets has ended.

A Member of the Forum will hear CA-Ching.

Will that be you? 😎
