Drone Photography & Aerial Videography Tulsa

Having the opportunity to capture the Prairie Burn with my drone had to be one of the coolest projects I’ve ever had the chance to work on. Honestly I’m pretty humbled that this video I made for NextGen Cattle won this award recently. I couldn’t have done this without the incredible cowboy poetry from Clint Raulerson, or working with a team like NextGen that always just lets me run creatively with whatever I think will look amazing to highlight their brand. Thank you as well to Rachel Lock who captured some in action pics of me during the burn!

There’s two links to check out about this, the first is the video if you haven’t seen it:

Here’s what ProMovieMaker Magazine said after they awarded the video:

“Your film is a clear winner and is simply awesome in the most literal sense of the word.
From the moment we saw this film, it was obvious it was going to be tough to beat. It is a
visually stunning piece of work with momentous drone shots. And the spoken-word poetry is
truly evocative which truly elevates the film into something very special. The camera work, choice of locations and time of day, editing, colour grading, audio and all the creative decisions you made in the film are a huge credit to you and your skills. It is something to be proud of.”

About Marcus Rangel

I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.

Does your website need help?

What happens or should happen after someone fills out a form on your website?

The KC Royals had just one the World Series… finally. They have hours, days in fact of footage to get you hyped about the next season and have everyone ready to buy next years season tickets. As a creative team, we had decided to buy season tickets as giveaways to our team and the credit card was in my hands. I guess I was expecting something magical when I clicked the “buy now” button to complete an order of an entire season – a message from Dayton Moore, a highlight reel of last season, a photo of them holding the trophy from last year, a countdown timer to opening day… something. And what came up after I clicked buy? A simple, boring, thanks for your…

What types of photos should you use on your website?

Let’s face it, people are on your site to see you and what your business offers. Photos are essential for a quality website, but here are some examples of what you should be using. A great quality headshot Like my friend Rick above from Sardis Events, this is a great example of a photo you should use. Notice I didn’t say glamour shot, but a high quality headshot to show who you are and often how you will appear to your clients in an everyday setting when they interact with you. Don’t take the suit and tie pic if you will never show up this way.  This is who Rick is every time I interact with him. Use real people If you are a restaurant,…

2020 Website Trends and how I used them for our new IMC website

Big text, gifs, large photos and “storybrand” conversational copy, it’s all part of how the web is going in 2020. What’s great about these trends is websites are now truly adapting to using the entire screen and they are honestly starting to look like a print pieces. I feel that in 2020, the days of sites having 12 point font should be over. Let’s look at why. Big text, no really big text is awesome! We all know that your website visitors will only stay on your site for a casual glance (say 8 seconds). Knowing this, you have to have scannable headlines. I gave our site big (but short) headlines and minimal text below each headline. Why waste time to write text if no…
