New *Thanksgiving* themed video - thoughts?

Hi everyone! As Dan mentioned, I’ve been trying out a video contractor and this is one of the first videos we put together. I haven’t posted it anywhere else quite yet - would love to hear what you think!


#2

Who doesn’t love a hand turkey?


#3

THE HANDTURKEY RETURNS!!!

Thanks for putting the effort in for this video!! It’s exciting to see a video that’s not a webcam or a cellphone! (I like those too though)


#4

Cute. Custard pie? Looks yummy. That Glowforge looks like it’s been through the wringer, but so pretty on the outside. Nice. Thanks for posting.


#5

It’s great that you can make a nice ornament so easily. :grin:

If I hadn’t seen it to be wood, I would have thought it was a cookie and I would have eaten it. :laughing:


#6

I will take a Glowforge with my pie!


#7

I like the video but I’d like it more with a few more table accessories like custom nametags, @maryelle’s wheat sheath, or engraved cork trivets.


#8

Yes, writing “Aunt Sue” on the turkey would be a nice touch!


#9

It looks great…tells a story that everyone can relate to. (It’s a keeper.) :relaxed:


#10

Great idea, customization is always a winner!


#11

In keeping with the Thanksgiving theme…you could do a follow up video with the wife knocking out a few quick emergency coasters to place under the cans the guys are drinking from while watching the game.

Might make a cute little series.

Very well done, I think the trace function is a strong demo of the innovation embodied in the Glowforge.
If I were putting that together, I would add one scene, or modify the one showing the design in the interface to illustrate the resize, rotate and drag/drop functions.
It would be really powerful to see the operation done from either a tablet or a phone - particularly a phone, since they are ubiquitous and our interface with the world.
Those would demonstrate some of the power the cloud interface brings, which is a great way to distinguish yourself from the crowd.
Just my opinion. :grin: Thank you for sharing that Bailey!

A modern update on a Thanksgiving classic. Everyone can relate to it.


#14

Here we don’t celebrate thanksgiving, but I get the idea. I like it :slight_smile:


#15

That was fun and cute and great! Thank you!


#16

I like it. Quick cute, like a teaser trailer.


#17

I think it would depend on the intended market segment for each video. I’m sure all current owners would like to see more interface p*rn, but keeping with the household appliance marketing they’ve used since the beginning, I think it’s more powerful without the tech details.

Trace your hand, add embellishments (:heart: the “Aunt Sue” idea!), scan & print – it’s simple and engaging while not scaring off the non-techies.

Follow-up #2: Middle-age relatives are out playing in the annual family football (gridiron, not real football :wink:). Meanwhile the wise parent/spouse/SO glances out the window, sees what’s going on, and cuts out an arm splint for the inevitable ER visit…


#19

Ha! Ha! Having just gone to the ER today for a broken finger this idea made me chuckle! …I’m fine!

Very nice video and I agree with all of the critiques too🤗
