Business videos are awesome for quickly communicating a message. The most popular requests are “About Us”, testimonials, and educational material (internal and external). Here is an overview of what I can do and why you should too.
“About Us” business video
Visual media is amazing at building trust and communication. You are hitting the senses and emotions all at the same time.
We meet to talk about what will be in your video. Normally you will cover what problem your business solves, who it’s for, and why you (if there are options). An outline is created so that the shooting schedule can be made. Most likely recording will have two parts: talking by someone, and shots that reinforce what is being said.
Its best to avoid formula videos if you want to be unique and memorable. Hopefully, we can show the character and culture of your business to attract like-minded people.
Short support video “clips”
Testimonials, staff or service introduction video etc for embedding in website or social media use.
Business videos FAQ
When can you come?
I am normally booking commercial jobs about 1-2 weeks out. If its a job that has external dependencies then those should be factored in eg weather dependent shoots.
Can you do magical edits or graphics?
Yes if visual effects is the right tool for the result you need then no problem eg sky replacements or explosions etc. In video, we have the bonus option of using animations with your graphics and information through the video like captions or endplates, incorporating 3D etc
Business videos health and safety
If you let me know when booking about any requirements then I can bring appropriate gear or allow time for an induction if required. I have shot on construction sites through to the prime minister, so am adaptable. Normally any shots that could potentially go public would need reviewing for intellectual property and the H&S Officer. But most importantly, I know what I can and what I cant do eg working at heights.
My gear is chosen for nimble and safe shooting so normally it’s a backpack and whatever I am carrying.
What should we wear?
If you are going to have people in the photos then they need to look like they are the best version of someone doing that role. Consistency is good so if you have things like branded gear then have everyone in the same stuff, even if it’s just a loaner.
How long do business videos take?
It can be relatively fast but if there are people involved who have other things they need to get to then we would prioritize those shots.
