Scott Rupert made two bids for high office, and for six years I was his “Chief Exec of Tech.” This involved developing a WordPress website for the candidate’s use, and tweaking the SEO for name recognition. The goal was to achieve a page 1 SERP, above-the-fold, for organic searches on Google, and we hit it!
The position also required much research and writing, and I was tasked to publish campaign position papers depending on current events, such as SOPA/PIPA.
I also liaised with the Ohio Secretary of State and certified FEC compliance with marketing operations, and while all of that was interesting, producing web video was also a very enjoyable part of the position. Scripting, blocking, shooting and editing. Inside the home studio and run-and-gun. (For ease of use and quick turnaround, my NLE of choice remains Vegas to this day.)
