Video Production Techniques for the Reluctant

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

Given the rapid growth seen in the importance of web videos to a well-rounded marketing strategy over the last few years, it is now more important than ever that companies begin developing solid web video content to promote themselves. However, despite this growing significance, many companies continue to make excuses about why they aren't taking advantage of these opportunities. The most common of these excuses range anywhere from, "Our target audience isn't really interested in web videos," to, "with too many other important marketing strategies we don't have enough time for web video production." Yet another justification, and one which may underlie a number of these other lame excuses, is the fact that many companies don't believe they have someone willing or acceptable enough to be put on camera and used as the subject for their video content efforts.

While for many this may be a matter of stage fright or lack of public speaking ability, or an inconvenient face-for-radio situation, the fact is that, despite these individuals' lack of on camera abilities or appearance, a number of methods exist around which companies can develop their production strategies which negate this most common excuse. The truth is, creating solid video content can be done even without the use of an individual physically appearing on camera as the company's spokesperson. In fact, many companies have done just that, developing and implementing effective web video production strategies which rely on other video techniques to remove this need.

To begin with, and perhaps the most obvious answer to this problem, is through the use of a voice over. By using voice overs in their videos, companies can have all the dynamic benefits offered by a video spokesperson but without the individual in question ever having to make a physical appearance. In diminishing the physical presence of the spokesperson as much as possible, while still letting some degree of visibility remain, some videos have even used only a spokespersons hands to act out certain actions in coordination with the narrator. However, even without the use of a narrator, through high quality photography and related techniques, videos can be made which shirk any need for a human presence in the video whatsoever, keeping the audience drawn in and telling their story through alternative, technical methods.

While these methods may be beyond the more elementary production capabilities of many companies, this is where the hiring of a highly qualified video production company can come in handy. These professionals can bring all the necessary knowledge and tools to the table to ensure that, whatever the complications or setbacks that companies may see in themselves, they can still create the highest possible quality of web video content available, and do so without it costing them an arm and a leg. Not only can such a team help companies in the finer aspects, they can help guide them through the entire video production process from start to finish.

However they do, companies can no longer afford to let themselves fall behind the curve as more and more organizations begin developing their online presence through web videos. So, whether they decide to take on these productions by themselves or hire out to professional third-party production teams, it's time they got on the ball and started investing in these new marketing strategies before it's too late.
