As President and Founder of the Atlanta Internet Video Marketing Association, Donna Davis is a leader in the Atlanta video professional community. She developed the organization after seeing the challenges and potential of connecting video and the internet. Donna began focusing on live streaming video years before it became popular, live streaming on a regular basis since 2008.
When Facebook started Facebook LIVE, Donna was thrilled. "Facebook is the perfect platform for live streaming. It's familiar to people, and the interaction is already built into the system. In addition, Facebook helps you to build an audience and gives LIVE top priority in the news feed. All these things make Facebook perfect for live streaming events."
Donna's background is in television news, where she learned the power of live broadcasting and the art of storytelling. As a reporter and anchor in various markets, Donna also learned to produce television shows. So, when she started her video production company in 2007, she began producing, Home & Style, a tv show which aired on cable stations across the country.
Today, Donna focuses on using live streaming and story telling to help clients better market their businesses and make the most of their award ceremonies. "There are so many exciting things happening with technology now. I feel lucky to be doing exactly what I'm doing", said Donna.
Pro Video Talent live streamed our worldwide awards event in Atlanta. One of our recipients could not make it to the event. Yet he was able to watch live from Indonesia. He and his family were thrilled. That was our primary objective in going live.
What we did not anticipate was that everyone who participated in the event absolutely loved it. The sponsors were thrilled to have their branding exposed to many more people and to offer something meaningful to the award recipients. The performers were also thrilled.
Everyone who was at the event in person had the chance to watch the video the next day, and that really added another level of enthusiasm to the entire event. In the past, we’ve had to wait several months for the final video. I would highly recommend Pro Video Talent!Sachi Koto Who's Who In Asian American Communities
