What makes video Marketing so Important?
When you adopt a “video first” approach to content marketing, there are a lot of factors to keep in mind. However, one is more important than the others. So let’s look past the fact that video has been proven to outperform online customer conversions. Let’s ignore the fact that video is designed to grab more attention, engage your audience, improve SEO, plus the fact that video is inherently more shareable than any other medium. Looking past all of that, there’s one important factor to keep in mind — video is just plain fun!
Our Video Process
There’s a lot that goes into a Waterbridge commercial video production. And it’s always a collaborative process with our clients.
1) Discovery Kickoff Meeting
First, we get an understanding of your business. It’s mission critical for us to understand how your business operates within the context of your industry. This will provide us with the foundation for future success.
Next, we do some high level creative planning. This is where we try to best match your financial budget to your overall business and marketing goals. From this, we will create a proposal we believe is both effective and affordable.
3) Project Launch & Creative
Now that the financials are out of the way, our production team can get started. Though most of the process is a trade secret, ultimately, you will be left with a professional script, storyboard and a detailed production schedule for your video marketing initiative.
4) Production Planning
The next action is to get the video shooting dates nailed down. Prepping for the shoot day is very important. Our team will do a site-visit to survey the shooting environment and flesh out the shot list. The more variables we remove before the shoot day, the more confidence we can have that your video will turn out the way we planned.
5) Video Capture
Movie making went digital a long time ago, so our videographers highly specialized, highly technical individuals in their space. To capture the best visuals to bring your video to life, our videographers consider a multitude of factors including resolution, codec, frame rate, focal range, aperture, lighting, audio acoustics and more.
6) Post Production
After the video has been captured, we ingest and consolidate the footage, and prepare for editing. Tight sequencing, and detailed colour grading are crucial to give your video the intended look and feel. To accomplish this, the typical Waterbridge commercial production requires a combination of three different professional softwares.
After we’ve sequenced your video, we need to get more assets together, we need your logo and example of some of marketing collateral, we’ll use this to produce design assets that are important elements to making your video look clean, professional, but most importantly, well branded.
Audio recording, audio editing and colour editing are all other very important factors we use to make your video look and sound the best.
This part should never be taken for granted. The delivery is a delicate part to the production and it is typically the first interaction we will have with the client since the Video Capture. And this is where you as the client, can bring in more creative feedback. When we hear your feedback, we can then produce the final copy of the video.
