Corporate Videography: What Works?

Corporate Videography: What Works?A lot of people see a videographer as just that – someone who has a camera to shoot some scenes and do some minor editing.

Corporate videography requires so much more than the ability to hold a camera steadily or having the right set of tools and equipment. What gives?

How a Corporate Videographer Works

A reputable corporate videographer in Vancouver takes pride in his work. He doesn’t just shoot and edit videos. Here’s how he goes about each project he undertakes:

  • Careful planning

Corporate Videography: What Works?A seasoned videographer in Vancouver does not want to take chances. He works with a plan which he creates during your first meeting. Upon your approval, he, together with his team, will gather necessary data – trends in your niche, competition, viewer behavior, and so on.

Then, he writes a script that would fit your need for the video. Will it be for a product launch? A corporate event? Or maybe a corporate profile? Then he prepares everything before the actual shooting – the right location in Vancouver, props, makeup, talents, tools and equipment.

  • Thoroughness during Shooting

That’s just the pre-production process. Here’s what happens during the day of filming:

Corporate Videography: What Works?On the day of the shoot, a good Vancouver videographer comes before the appointed time. You’ll notice that he uses a vehicle specifically for his equipment. He scours the place, checks for the best areas where he can place his equipment. He sees to it that the whole video production is ready for the shoot – with no stones left unturned. He checks all cameras (good corporate videographers use two cameras or more to capture different angles), memory cards,  and other equipment.

Then, he makes the talents feel relaxed so they will be able to portray their designated characters. He shoots scenes according to the script, taking into consideration proper lighting, sounds, and so on.

So is the videographer’s job done? No, it has only begun.

  • Meticulous Editing

The third, and probably the most critical for a videographer is the post production stage. Here, he chooses the music; images, video clips, special effects, transitions, and animations needed to create a powerful video.

An experienced videographer in Vancouver meticulously selects each element – because he knows that the wrong ones can make or break the video. Check the video below.
