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.

A video clip featuring the owner of the business is a great way to put a face to the name of your business. It doesn’t have to be an official interview, but it should clearly communicate why your business matters. Feature an interview with the owner of your business, where she or he explains what makes the company unique.
Video is particularly effective at showing the interactivity of products and services, especially if there’s more than meets the eye. When people can’t physically touch the goods, video can be a powerful tool to demonstrate how the products work. Showcase the unique personality of the owner and the business with their interaction with the company’s products or services.
For plant tours for customers or potential investors and employees, a video production can save you time and money. Rather than driving an entire crew around the plant in a train of carts, simply setup a video room to stream your plant tours from the internet. Our production methods work well for your viewers to see the big picture of your location from all angles. We combine drone aerial and traditional video to get all of your important shots. Our video tour guides will take you through each stage of the manufacturing process, explaining how all the pieces come together to create your impressive products or services.

When patients speak to a doctor or another medical professional, they see a person who genuinely cares about their well-being. That personal touch is often missing from medical practice websites. It is even worse when looking at the sites of medical equipment and device companies. Medical video production offers a great way to bring the personal touch back.
We create videos to bring new patients to their practices. Most people will not pick a doctor from the phone directory. They want to know a bit about the physician before they even call and set an appointment. One way patients investigate doctors today is by visiting the medical practice’s website.
Physicians can use medical video productions to tell their personal story. Why did they become a doctor? What brought them to their specialty? Why did they choose to practice in their current city or region? Patients love to know personal information about their physicians. It builds trust and makes the patient more likely to choose that physician. We also create medical video productions to give a tour of the offices or facility. People like to know something about a place before they visit it.
We also create videos for procedures, medical products and other health related services. Videos are great for showcasing a procedure performed at the office or by the doctors in the practice. For example, many eye doctors perform sight corrective procedures. Video is perfect for showing how the procedure works and to capture patient 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.
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.

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.
