St Louis Video Production | Taping Client Testimonials

Videos are one of the most credible forms of customer endorsement because the words are literally coming straight from the customer’s mouth. Not only that, but videos require very little time to watch, as opposed to written testimonials which involve a greater time investment on the part of the consumer.

Testimonial videos can help you a lot when it comes to building trust and informing your target audience about how good your product is. In this context, we can say that these types of videos work very well for the decision stage of the buyer’s journey. Remember that at this point, your prospects are aware of a certain problem/need they have, and found you among the most interesting alternatives in the market, BUT are not sure if they should go with you or not. So, testimonial videos are the “push” they need to take that next step. Your clients are some of your biggest advocates. As such, client testimonial videos are one of the most powerful marketing tools available for establishing credibility and trust. Actual user experience from a real-life customer may be just the vote of confidence your potential customers need in order to choose your company over the competitors.

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.

Video Production St Louis | Drone Video | Construction Progress

Pre-Construction Video & Photography as a Legal Defense
The best insurance policy you can have is a pre-construction video that details the conditions of the
worksite and all access areas prior to construction. Construction progress photography will also act as a great defense if need be.

All videos are time and date stamped with clear  start/stop markers imbedded in the video that are crucial for any legal matter in any state. In most all cases, having  pre-construction and construction progress videos or photographs puts a quick stop to unfair legal action. If litigation is required you can count on our  team of professionals to appear as expert witnesses detailing the recording process.

Your pre-construction video will clearly detail the conditions that exist prior to the start of your part of the job. Any pre-existing damage will be thoroughly documented and stored with an easy to find reference of all areas of video coverage. We can also take construction progress shots to document the process – once all work on the job site is complete we can come in for
a post-construction inspection video.

Photography and video by our firm includes both ground and aerial imagery.
