Welcome to another post from our "Meet the FindLaw Team" series. "Meet the FindLaw Team" provides insight into the day-to-day lives of our colleagues. Today we feature Laura Bogenschutz from our Video team. Get to know Laura by reading about her experiences at FindLaw below.
What is your current title?
Video Field Producer
When did you join the FindLaw team / how did you get here?
August 2006. Prior to joining FindLaw, I worked in communications at the state teacher's union headquarters. When I started at FindLaw, I worked as a Website Project Manager for about 2 years. With my background in communications and graphic design, I naturally transitioned into the Video Field Producer role when we launched our video products in 2008.
What interests you most about lawyer marketing or your functional area?
Honestly, my favorite thing about this position is getting out in the field and meeting my video clients. I really enjoy getting to know them and reaching that point where they trust my guidance and direction. There's nothing more satisfying than walking away from an 8-hour video shoot knowing the client is happy and I'm heading home with great footage in hand.
What activities does your work day typically involve?
It depends on the day. A typical day for me ranges from answering client emails and questions about how their Web site or videos are progressing, to writing interview questions for our Video Starter and Essential products. From working with internal team members on video process enhancements, to standing in an airport security line on my way out to a video shoot. From directing the crew on where to set up an interview shot and b-roll sequences to sitting down in a one-on-one video interview with my clients. No two days look the same, which is nice.
What are your interests outside of FindLaw?
Well, I have a new found appreciation for traveling! When I'm home though, I like going to concerts, hanging out with my friends, my family, my dog... and I'm from Minnesota, so I guess it goes without saying that I like heading up north to spend time at the cabin.
