St Louis Video Production – Client Talent on Camera with Teleprompter

We’ve been doing a lot of Teleprompter shoots for many types of companies.

There are certainly a lot of things to consider prior to enlisting a teleprompter on your shoot.

Consistency between takes – Probably the most obvious. You have a script. In theory, your Talent will read it. And you know what they are going to say. This helps a ton in conducting the interview, a keeps everyone on the same page as to what is going to be said.

Controlled message – On that note, having a pre-approved script means that all team members know ahead what will be said on set. This is a big help with larger teams, or making sure that higher-ups know what content will be included in the video. Your biggest job on set though, is to make sure your Talent doesn’t look like a robot delivering this message.

Faster turnaround time – (In most instances) shooting with a Teleprompter improves turnaround times in the post production realm. Your shooting ratios should also improve using a teleprompter compared to straight interviews.

Can easily adapt message on the fly – Even though there’s a script, it’s easy to tweak the script on the fly. That said, if there are major changes it can get a little tricky. You need to make sure that the message stays consistent and on target with your team’s goals. But BEWARE this can be a Pandora’s box! We’ve been in too many shoots where the script opens up for discussion, and everyone thinks they have an answer. Dedicate one person as the script supervisor. Someone who won’t get caught up in listening to everyone’s opinions and who can keep the shoot on track.

Consider the camera angle – Most of the times, your Talent is looking directly looking to camera. This is important to keep in mind. This means a second camera is going to be at an angle (the Talent won’t be looking directly at the camera unless they turn to address it, and that camera too has a teleprompter). Just keep in mind that some viewers find switching to an an angle where the Talent doesn’t address the camera awkward if the Talent was just looking directly at the camera.

Sense of timing – With a teleprompter script, you’ll get a pretty accurate understanding as to how long your video will be. You can eliminate sections on the fly if you find your video is running too long.

St Louis Video Production | Editing It All Together

St louis Video Production can create some rather remarkable videos for you.

St louis Video Production can create some rather remarkable videos for you.

There is a feeling to cinema, and when drawing people into that world, you must capture that feeling. Challenge yourself. Watch movies that fit the genre you are going for and compare your movie side-by-side. Don’t use any excuses. Yes, the blockbuster films may have a lot more money, but the audience doesn’t want to hear that your piece looks amateur because it doesn’t have a big enough budget. All they know is that it doesn’t look like a movie. With the right composition, colors, lighting, camera settings, FX, color grading, music and sound, you can achieve that cinematic look.

Video Production St. Louis | Corporate Marketing Videos | Lighting for Testimonials

Common Lighting Setups – A lot of fledgling filmakers take their commitment to complete authenticity too far, thinking that it should extend even to the lighting. Using only ambient light sources, they think, adds to the cinema verite feel; that’s the way it really happened! But poor lighting has more potential to ruin a video production than improve it. Keep your video looking good with easy-to-understand lighting arrangements preferred by the professionals. We’ll show you a few good lighting tricks that will make your video the best it can be.

Create a marketing video to build your lead generation.

When it comes to developing a successful business over the long term, lead generation is essential. Learning how to build a network of contacts and potential future business prospects can give any business a new lease on life. Keep reading to gain some terrific insights on how the most successful entrepreneurs do just that.

Create engaging video content. Lead generation relies a lot on building trust with your product or service. Show and tell your products and services through video marketing. Smart targeted content does a lot to help get you there. Your target audience will be more likely to do business with you if they feel you are providing great service and that you legitimately care.

Ask your current customers to pass on word about your company to those they know. Your current loyal customers are the best lead generation asset you have. Their word of mouth can really mean a lot to generating new customers. Just them sharing your company information with video in social media can be surprisingly powerful.

Use videos and images to tell your brand’s story. Article writing is a powerful form of content marketing for leads, but videos and photos can be even more powerful. This is especially true for mobile screen visitors to your site. Reading content on mobile devices can be less than optimal, but a photo or video can tell the story really well.

Create an interesting video on Youtube for your business. If you have a product or service to sell, this is a great way to demonstrate it. Include a link that goes directly to your website to make it easy for viewers to find out more information about what you offer.

There can be little debate about the essential nature of lead generation in creating and sustaining a winning business. Sadly, not enough businesspeople have taken the time to learn new techniques when it comes to building these critical contacts. The information presented above should start to remedy that problem for many.

Better lighting for your video production.

Over a longer video production shoot and on most quick shots, especially indoors, use continuous lighting. This will allow you to reproduce the exact lighting should you need to come back and shoot a similar testimonial at a later date.

We try to minimize uncontrollable natural light by blocking or covering of windows.  For LED lights, we control the light spill with barn doors.  It may sound funny, but we often create and craft specifically on set with cardboard and gaffer’s tape to direct and control the viewer’s eye to the area we wish to highlight.

Conversely, when shooting outdoors, harness and control the natural lighting from the sun.  Place diffusers between the sun and the subject for a more balanced lighting effect.

Every video requires and calls out for good lighting.  It’s unfortunate that many shooters, shoot and scoot too fast and don’t take the time to do it right.
