Lights, camera, action for crew CVs


Yacht crew will have the opportunity to tell prospective employers of their virtues <ital>virtually</ital> during the CrewVid Video Resume Extravaganza.

Jason Kettlestrings, owner and founder of, plans to create short videos for crew with film sessions scheduled during the Palm Beach International Boat Show tomorrow and Saturday.

Kettlestrings will coach participants to optimize their speeches before they face the camera and then edit the content into a mini-commercial for crew to use via a Web link on the site.

“I’m kicking this off because I love boats and want to help others enjoy this industry,” Kettlestrings said. “It’s fun.”

He’s been working on the water, most recently running, his video production company filming yachts for sale and charter.

“I eventually hope to make money with this. But at the start, these will be published for free on our YouTube.”

In the meantime, there are a variety of expanded options for fees starting at about $50. Crew can bring photos and video to integrate into their personalized presentation.

“We’ll cut photos in and fade them out as they talk,” Kettlestrings said. “Plus we can cut in extra video so they can show themselves at work. You can see them at the helm while they describe their license.”
