Your Video Project
What to expect from here.
The next few months are going to be a fun ride – so welcome aboard! To ensure everyone’s headed in the same direction, we thought it’d be best to give you an “itinerary of expectations” for the start of your video journey. This expectations document is going to help guide you through what your video package consists of; and give you an idea of what to expect and when to expect them! After commencement, we also send you weekly progress updates. Please note, your input and cooperation throughout the video creation process will be vital as to how quickly we can deliver for you! Now, what’s next?
This is where we ensure we have all the right details and information from you to get things moving! The team can’t begin work until all the items below are completed:
3. Here's a few things to remember for the shoot:
- Clothing: Plain block colours are best on camera (no checkers, stripes or wild patterns). Splashes of colour that match your company’s branding will also help to tie it all together. Bring a few clothing options to be safe.
- Practice, practice, practice your script/content (even if you’re going to be using a teleprompter). Practice in front of the mirror and make sure you read aloud. Reading the words in your mind isn’t beneficial. Pretend like you’re in front of the camera and give it your best performance!
This is when it gets really exciting! By now, you’ll have your script ready to go, and you’ll be scheduled in for a shoot at our studio A standard shoot is blocked out for 3 hours. In this time, yourself or a representative of your business will be filmed reading your script off our teleprompter (or working off the cuff if that’s your style!)
Post-Production and Final Delivery
If you’ve supplied us with all of the assets mentioned during pre-production, you should have your first edit within a week after your shoot. Your videographer, or another member of the video team, will edit together your footage according to your instructions, as well as create the lower thirds. Once the first edit is complete; your Project Manager will send you the video where you are encouraged to suggest changes or small edits. The quicker you supply us your feedback, the sooner we can deliver your final video, which is usually 2-3 days (depending on staff availability) after we receive your notes. Please note that only one round of changes is included in your video package, any changes beyond that will include additional fees, so be sure to be all-inclusive with your comments. Once the second edit is complete and is to your liking, your Project Manager will be in touch with a downloadable link to your final video! And like that, our work is complete and you’re in possession of amazing videos that’ll serve your business well for many years to come. Who thought something so amazing could take such little time?
Other things you need to know
Preparation & Scripting Tips
What’s your intended outcome? Have a think; what are you doing all this for? What would you like to achieve with these videos? By thinking about the end result first, you’ll find it naturally paves the way to the right style and content to achieve your goal. Know your audience Who are the videos aimed at? If it’s a 60 year old business man, then funny gags might not be the right way to keep his attention. Mentally create an “avatar” (your ideal viewer) for this video. For example, “my ideal customer is a mid-forties, stay-at-home mum, with three kids and a pool.” It’s not about you Say what? Yeah, we know, but this is a really key point to get your head around. The most effective videos out there are ones that focus on what the potential customer wants, and what you and your business can do for them. Simplify the message One of the reasons you’ll get viewers is because it’s easier to watch a video than read text. Compound that with the fact everyone’s busy nowadays (so you don’t get their attention for very long), means the “less is more” motto will do wonders for your video.
How do I know what's happening with my project?
You will receive regular updates on the progress of your video every Friday to ensure you’re across every aspect of your project! Of course, you’re more than welcome to reach out to your Project Manager at any time should you have any questions or concerns.
