Hi everybody! I have a book review website:
Some books that I have reviewed so far include: entries from the Three Body Problem series by Cixin Liu (The Dark Forest and Death’s End), The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, and Your House is on Fire/Your Children All Gone by Stefan Kiesbye.
I particularly enjoy Fantasy novels, as well as Classics, but I will write reviews for whichever books I read. Writing is a great way to organize your thoughts and opinions about a topic you feel passionate about, and since I love books, I thought that creating this website, as well as the corresponding YouTube videos, would be a fun project.
Deer Stream Books will hopefully become something bigger than just my own reviews. I hope someday to feature book reviews by other authors as well. If you have read a book and would like to post a review on my website, I would be more than happy to have you. My vision is to create more of an online book club rather than a solo site for just my own personal opinions.
The Call of the Wild is a short adventure novel by Jack London, published in 1903 and set in Yukon, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, when strong sled dogs were in high demand. The central character of the novel is a dog named Buck. The story opens at a ranch in Santa Clara Valley, California, when Buck is stolen from his home and sold into service as a sled dog in Alaska. He becomes progressively feral in the harsh environment, where he is forced to fight to survive and dominate other dogs. By the end, he sheds the veneer of civilization, and relies on primordial instinct and learned experience to emerge as a leader in the wild.
London spent almost a year in the Yukon, and his observations form much of the material for the book. The story was serialized in The Saturday Evening Post in the summer of 1903 and was published later that year in book form. The book’s great popularity and success made a reputation for London. As early as 1923, the story was adapted to film, and it has since seen several more cinematic adaptations.
Just about everyone around the world knows that California’s Los Angeles is an epicenter of photo and film production – so how does one go about finding the right company to work with?
As with any decision, the key comes down to planning.
First of all, you’ll need to start by identifying whether you are looking for photo or video production in Los Angeles – or both. Some agencies focus on one or the other, while others like Talent Network productions can handle all of your production needs. You don’t want to work with a studio focusing on photo production in Los Angeles if you’re looking for prime video content.
Then you’ll start narrowing down your list based on added elements like where your materials will be shown, who your target audience is, and more.
Let’s say you need an editorial photo shoot for a German magazine. In that case, you’ll likely find your best bet is a company focusing on photo produktion in LA, which will know more about your target market, thereby making for a more successful shoot. Not to mention, a company that can handle your photo produktion in LA will also be able to handle all of the related needs of the shoot, including things like casting the right models and finding the right support staff, whether your shoot is in California or Germany.
Targeting the Right Audience
In addition to the location needs of your company or your audience, when looking for production services in Los Angeles you want to make sure the company can handle the needs of your particular audience. You certainly wouldn’t want an adult film company to handle the video production in Los Angeles for the promotional video for a child’s toy, so the right company will be general enough to handle your specific needs, no matter what they are.
Your Service Needs
A big factor in choosing the right production company to work with is whether or not the company will be able to give you the customer service you expect. While some of the largest studios that focus on photo production in Los Angeles may sound appealing to work with because of name recognition, if you know you want to be involved in the process of formulating the right shoots, they may not have the time to be accessible when you need it.
Not to mention, production of special events or content can take a significant amount of time to plan and execute. You want to be sure that the company you choose can see your project through from start to completion, staying with you every step of the way. In these cases, a boutique-sized company will typically offer far more personalized customer service when compared with a huge agency that handles hundreds of customers at a time.
