Video creation tips with Primal Video’s Justin Brown

April 17, 2020 / By

At the 2020 Social Media Marketing World, we got a chance to speak with Primal Video’s Justin Brown. He sat down with our resident video marketing pro Max to chat about all things video creation and marketing. 

With over 20 years of experience in film production, Justin has spent recent years creating marketing videos for entrepreneurs. As Justin got busier he had to start saying “no” to clients. In 2014, he decided it was time to teach businesses how to make videos so they could create and grow on their own. It was a shift in ideology but one Justin has continued to this day.

Here are a few snippets from the conversation between him and Max in San Diego:

There’s so much covered in this clip that a few lines can’t do it justice. Watch the whole interview for tips on SEO and the importance of thumbnails.

Why WeVideo?


Justin stumbled upon WeVideo years ago and was blown away by the platform’s capabilities. The ability to work on projects on the cloud and not having to ship hard drives to partners to work on was a huge plus.
