Corporate Film Pro Tips

(...and how we help.)
 

Tip #1: Know your audience. They say that in a compromise, you only succeed in making nobody happy. True or not... this principal does apply when it comes to audience groups. You wouldn't speak the same way to a casual consumer as you would to a seasoned investor. So you'll probably want to make sure that your corporate promo takes on a unique voice that speaks directly to a specific audience group. If you are having trouble pinpointing your audience, send us an email. We'll send you a list of questions that only you can answer... and by the time you've answered them all, you're guaranteed to know who your video's primary audience group is. 

Tip #2: Determine your budget. Even if you don't have a Fortune 500-scale marketing budget, you can still have a quality film production for your brand! But it's important to be realistic when it comes to how far a dollar will stretch. A professional producer knows that where there is a will, there is a way - and can talk you through some small adjustments that may mean the difference between an over-stretched, unprofessional-looking commercial, and a comfortable, high-end corporate film on almost any budget. 

Tip #3: Give direction and come with comparisons. Knowing what you want is important. Have you seen a video recently that really moves you and could serve as a comparable to your project? Showing these to your producer goes a long way towards getting the results that you want. If you don't know what style or content you want, schedule a free zoom call with us, and we will ask a few questions that can help to solidify your project's direction in your mind. 

Tip #4: Choose a production package. Do you want on-camera interviews? B-roll footage? Are you following a staged script? Will you production include moving camera shots, or will it be filmed completely on a tripod? Do you need to record audio? What about drone footage? Will there be visual effects incorporated into your project during post production? We can build a production package to fit most budgets.

Tip #5: Give yourself enough time. It may be surprising to learn how many hours it takes to produce a corporate film. In most cases, be prepared for about 3 weeks of post-production.
