We all know how important fitness and exercise are to the human body, but how often do we think of the brain as another part you need to work out?
Only recently has brain fitness taken a spotlight in the media and become a hot topic in neuroscience. So what does this have to do with our video productions company? One of our clients is Nicole Scheidl, CEO of Fit Minds. This organization works with people suffering from forms of dementia such as Alzheimer’s, as well as other diseases affecting the brain.
Nicole sees herself as a cognitive coach or fitness trainer helping...

customers with video and social media?
Videotelephony Video Shooting for Fit Minds
Last week Videotelephony had the pleasure of shooting with a wonderful woman named Stephanie. We were working on a shoot for Fit Minds which offers cognitive health products to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The story that Stephanie told was a sad and beautiful one about her mother. Stephanie described to us what she went through as a caregiver and what her mother went through as well. As difficult as it was at times to talk about, the importance of understanding Alzheimzer’s and Dementia and what we all can do to prevent as well...
Recently Videotelephony had the pleasure of meeting Chris Maley, a remarkable and intelligent person, from the 20/200 project.
This company is focused on developing mobile applications, (think apps on an iPhone for example) and making accessible to everyone. In addition to working to make websites for companies more accessible to all user.
You might be thinking, how are apps, websites and other online mediums inaccessible at the moment?
If you had a vision impairment, a learning disability or even a hearing loss you would experience the world in a completely different...
Our Social Media Experiment in Ottawa.
Yesterday two of Videotelephony’s employees decided to take the world by storm.
And by storm we mean going out and talking to people. This was not a client based or related activity. But was another type of socialization. While trying to up our social media presence, Twittering and Facebooking we wondered where the balance had gone. As video and webcasting company we even have a lens to protect ourselves from the true experience. After reading this article in the Globe and Mail we were inspired.
This article left us with the twitter (pardon the pun)...

It's a list of funding portals for Canadian businesses. And who couldn't use a little extra cash for their...
How can a company video benefit your website?
Compelling content on any website is key.
Sometimes things you never expected to catch your attention DO catch your attention.
When you land on a website learning more about the offering, services or causes are key. Having a company video to explain what a company does, or samples of what they could do are key to making a compelling case for your services. If you think your services, products causes or whatever your business may be is not right for a video or blogging you need to think about WHAT it is that you offer and the ideas will flow.

On March 3rd I gave my hair away to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.
Hair donation is an amazing feeling. To make a much needed wig for women who are struggling with losing their hair due to cancer treatment is something that anyone who can do, should do! To know a wig will be made out of your hair that's going to grow back on you anyway is a wonderful thing.
The adjustment is a little difficult but it's coming along. It's hard to go from having your hair to keep your neck warm to it not it touching the collarbone. Just imagine losing a whole 10 inches in one hair donation! I...
