Tim here. As announced in the last blog post, my second week coincided with the first time in ages we were able to work in-office again.
But it meant a really early start for me. My alarm clock went off at 4:15 a.m., which, as you know, is an unusual time for a student to be up ;). In addition, I had the "extreme" cold and the joys of scraping ice from the windscreen.
By 5:00 a.m. I was in the office. As already mentioned it is not my first time at JBL, so I knew what to expect.
Matthias welcomed me and showed me my new workplace. The staggered work schedule meant only half of the employees were there and it was unusually quiet compared to how I knew it.
As soon as Moritz arrived, we started shooting product videos and, while we were at it, also prepared tidied up the tanks a bit.
Fun fact: Every JBL office is allowed an aquarium to try out our products and get to know them. These two tanks are former championship entries from a trade fair. JBL bought them at auction for a good cause and they have been in the sales department ever since. However, the tanks were newly set up again some time ago.
Even though the videos you see on TikTok and Instagram are only a few seconds long, it takes a while to shoot the video. We think about where we want to shoot the video, how we want to shoot it and if we want to have a certain effect. Then it has to be filmed and that doesn't always work on the first try. Sometimes it takes two or three times until we like it enough to edit it.
How do you like the videos on TikTok and Instagram? Do you have a favourite video? Let us know!
