There is a lot of prep work that goes into a video shoot and many steps to the pre-production phase. One important thing is to be fully prepared and planned out for the video shoot. This means have your scenes thought up before hand. The worst thing you could do is get to the shoot and spend half your time trying to think of ideas for scenes. The scenes don’t have to be fully scripted, but have a good base as to what is going to happen in each room or scene of your video. Each member of our crew is sent a call sheet before the shoot happens. It helps us use our time wisely, and get the work done on time.
Create Quality Audio and Lighting
When shooting your video you want to make sure that you have properly set up lights to show off your subjects and focus points of the video. Using three-point lighting to enhance your scene will make the video more pleasing to the audience. Having harsh light in a shoot can be very distracting and can lead to the video not getting as many views. Same goes for the audio. If you do not have clear audio throughout your whole video, the audience can get uninterested or confused. If you are adding sound in post make sure it lines up with the scene and makes sense. A soft constant background song is a good way to help drown out any extra ambient noise and silence throughout your video.
Know your Brand
Video Marketing Storytelling is a great way to reach your audience. Giving them the information they need in a fun and entertaining helps them stay intrigued. There are many different ideas that you can develop
into a script or scene for your video. One thing that is very important is staying true to your brand. The audience that you are targeting will either know your brand well or are just being introduced to you, and this is your chance to really sell your brand. If you don’t stay true to your companies values it can cause your audience to lose interest.
Optimize your Video
Post-production is a big part of getting your video to the audience. Once you have created your video you want to make sure it is ready to be shared with the world. As you share you video you want to make sure that it is going to reach everyone that is looking for it. Keywords and tagging are a big part of Youtube Marketing. Optimizing your video will allow more people to find it in different searches. You also want to make sure that it is in the correct format and optimized based on the platform you are using. For example, 85% of video views on Facebook are without sound, so you want to make sure that it has captions or volume is not required. You always have to appeal to the audience and make their watching experience easier and entertaining.
