Behind the Scenes of our Halloween Social Media Video

 

You might be surprised at the amount of thought and detail that can go into even a simple concept for a social media video - like let's carve our logo into a pumpkin for a Halloween video.

Cobwebs were added to the background, lights to accent them, and fan to make the cobwebs move.
