Second Day of Auditions 13 December

Wrapping up the first day of auditions, and looking forward to tomorrow. The Rex Team saw many talented professionals, and lots of fresh, and energetic hopefuls.

Didn’t think we would be rolling as much tape, but there was so much worth while to capture. Thank you all for your enthusiasm for the project, and what youbrought to the audition process.

Most showed on time, and Rex was able to get people in on time and, amazingly, out on time. Hopefully, no one felt rushed. Thank you to new Rexers Tess Whittaker, and Recel Bregaudit for keeping Norvell, Sarah, Emile, and myself on perfect time.

The interviews for crew have been amazing. Generation Rex couldn’t be happier with the turnout and the quality of candidates.

Sessoms Stands With Obama?
The Times They Are a Changin'

A hard fought Virginia Beach Mayoral Campaign is ending with controversy. What could have been a final victory lap for Mayor Meyera Oberndorf in this hotly contested four person race is now a tarnished vicotory for Will Sessoms. This is a very sad way to end the election.


Tough TimesThe best video clips are here

Virginia Beach Mayor Meyera Oberndorf’s campaign is quick-stepping toward November 4. The campaign continues it’s momentum, receiving it’s single largest contribution to date from Stihl Corporation.

REX On The Move

RexNet.tv is on the move!

Generation Rexers Norvell Rose, Ethan Marten (hey, that’s me!), Sarah Pope, Emile Husson and the whole A-Team of tech and production crew are now reassembled in their larger space, and beginning the third phase of hiring. Rex is in the process of augmenting with additional shooters and editors (hey, that’s you!).

REX has already created these unique situations:

Graduating more than forty Vpros ™ or Video Professionals ™ thus making them VideoActive ™; and setting up a Chesapeake brokerage with scores of quality video content, and its own internet television channel for real estate. Having launched in March of 2009, we believe it is the first in the United States. Armada Hoffler, Drucker & Falk and NFL Star Bruce Smith used Rex to move into the video age. Even the third largest builder in the United States — Centex — came to Rex.

From a global economic standpoint, we are reversing a trend. Rather than outsourcing, we are creating jobs and the template for Internet Television right here in Hampton Roads, Virginia. This is not a call center or a service outlet. These are real, creative, professional jobs.

Time to Take the Plunge — Again!

Dearest Family and Friends –

Has it been a year, already!? Oh, yeah…the Polar Plunge is taking place in Virginia Beach, Saturday, February 2, 2008! Once again, Pam and I will join forces (along with daughter Hannah working as personal photographer, towel-holder and dry-one-making-fun-of-idiot-parents) as “Team Good-Marten;” swimmin’ and shiverin’ to raise money for Special Olympics Virginia.

This year, we’re joining the ranks of costumed swimmers, I’ll pay tribute to Harpo Marx and Pam as Groucho (Hey, is this typecasting?!). Last year–thanks to you–$1,155 was raised for this worthy cause. This year, we’re shootin’ for $2,500! Thank you so very much for lending your moral and financial support. To donate, just click on the widget at the top of this blog, and leave some words of encouragement, advice or humor. If you’re feeling particularly giddy about the whole thing — pull off the amazing hat trick and do all three!

Hope your Holidays have been Happy.

Can you say VideoActive tm.? I knew you could. Linda De La Zerda, Husband Alex, and DeBord Custom Homes President David DeBord can, too. They hit the set — De Bord’s 9557 27th Bay Street in Norfolk’s new East Beach sidewalk community early this a.m., and never looked back. These guys came prepared, and naturally caffeinated. Man, just wind ‘em up, and let ‘em go! What a pleasure. The sun wasn’t cooperating — so we’ll do some exterior pickups this weekend. Yeah, this is a real production, folks. This isn’t hit and run with a shaky hand held. I’m paraphrasing Ms. De La Zerda, but I think it’s fair to say; Hey, you guys really work. This is much harder than I thought, but you make it fun, too. Yep, I hear that a lot. A lesson learned long ago from my baseball-playing brother, Seth. If it’s difficult — make it look easy. Thanks, bro’. The fun part, well, that’s me and Norvell! Okay, Video Property Video shot….

Then it was across Hampton Roads to the second location, Cahoon Plantation, a golf community in Chesapeake. We hit the grille for a late lunch, and strategy session. Linda and Alex know who they are, and brought it to the set for the afternoon. The sun broke through the snow clouds! Lunch is cut short, and we hit the links for some quick exteriors! They were joined by Golf Pro Brad Solis. Solis gave a rather rousing testimonial for Linda, Alex and their “Care Team.”

We wound it up at the Clubhouse. This was a long day, and the De La Zerda’s were troupers. They got it, though. It really is fantastic when you know the Realtors “get it” and know what they are going to do with it. When edited — these will yield five individual videos to exploit for their buyer’s, sellers’, and builders’ benefits.

Oh, and we squeezed in a cover shoot for the January issue of Hampton Roads Realtor Association’s Realtor Magazine. Great output. Great footage. Great day.

Talk about your VideoActive! Another full day of shooting today.  Tuesday and Wednesday are chock full of Agent Profile Videos as well.  Thursday will be devoted to edits, and Friday down to North Carolina for another Video Property Tour. 

Rexnet.tv is becoming the all-night diner of real estate!
