How Drones Have Changed Video Production and How You Can Use Them.

In the last few years, drones have become more accessible and affordable. This has opened up new doors for businesses that want to implement them in their marketing and video production. Drones can be used in a number of ways to improve your videos. They are a great way to give your audience an aerial view of your business or property. They can also help you document processes, create stock footage for future marketing materials, and much more. If you’re looking to expand your video production with the help of drones, read on for some helpful tips and tricks!

Plan Your Drone Footage Carefully

When deciding what to film with your drone, you’ll want to make sure you’re choosing the best angles and shots for your subject. For example, you might want to start your video with a close-up shot of your product, followed by an aerial shot of your office. Drones are great for showing off large, exterior areas like gardens, parks, and outdoor patios. They can be very helpful for real estate video production, as they can capture a wide shot of the surrounding area. Drones are also great for indoor shots, thanks to the lower noise level. They can get very close to your subject without disturbing what’s going on. This can be helpful when filming indoors and needing to get a close-up shot of something like a machine or product.

Document your business with drone video

Businesses can use drone video to document their location and show off what goes on inside their business. This can be helpful when showcasing any special events or seasonal activities that happen during business hours. Drones are a great way to document your location, as they can get an aerial shot of the surrounding area. This can help your audience see the layout of your business or property. It can also give a better perspective of what your business looks like. You can use drone video to document your business in many different ways. You can use it to capture video of special events, show how your employees do their jobs, and more.

Use Drone Footage as B-roll

B-roll is the footage that’s played in the background during a video. This may include shots of the subject, close-ups, and different angles. B-roll is important because it helps your audience stay engaged in the video. It keeps them from zoning out by giving them something else to look at. Drones can be helpful for B-roll in many different ways. You can use them to capture shots of the landscape around your subject. You can also use them to get close-up shots of the subject to cut between your primary footage. When editing your video, make sure to include plenty of B-roll. This will keep your audience engaged and create a more thorough and complete video.

Create stock footage for your marketing and video production

Stock footage is a great way to expand your video library and use drone video multiple times. This can help you save time and money in the long run. Stock footage is video that is taken and shot at one time. It doesn’t have a clear narrative. It’s meant to be used over and over again on different marketing materials. You can use drone video as stock footage by editing out your primary subject and replacing them with different ones. This is a great way to expand your library. You can shoot a wide shot of one thing, like a busy street, and edit it into a different video each time. You can also shoot a close-up of one thing, like the Arch, and use that in multiple videos as well.

Currently, many companies are in dire need of skilled workers. Have several positions open at your company? You may want a video to get the word out about these opportunities. Consider how likely people are to share videos and how much information you can convey. Video helps you elicit emotion which can be a key element in encouraging someone to consider the job or to send the video to a friend who may be a perfect fit for the position.

The Director of Photography sets up a laptop or iPad next to the camera to get the correct eye line for the interview.

If the shot needs to be adjusted, the interviewee /talent leaves the room if needed to maintain social distancing.
If requested, the Director of Photography can stay outside the room and monitor everything remotely.
The interview itself can be conducted by a remote Director via Zoom, Skype, or any similar platform.  The Client can watch or participate.

Corporate video production will help you achieve more sales and better brand awareness.

Corporate video strategies create content and grow your business so your brand can thrive. Start producing corporate videos to tell your company’s story.

Video storytelling is one of the most impactful tools a corporate can use. A video on your landing page can increase conversion by 80% and 59% of executives said they would rather watch a video than read text. But to be truly effective, your video must have a compelling story to tell.

Your brand is not a stagnant strategy on a piece of paper — you must bring it to life. Video can create a boost to marketing strategies and generates a buzz. Your brand evolves continually, and telling that story is important to keep your audience connected and bring in new viewers — which could eventually become loyal customers.

Video does what text doesn’t. It creates an immediate, real and authentic route of interaction and connectivity with audience members, who can often provide reactions and comments in real time.

Unique Visual Angles for Presenting Your Products

Video provides the opportunity to give your customers unique and exciting angles and perspectives.

Scenic Landscapes Can Be Captured Economically Using a High-Quality Cinematic Drone

Drone video will allow you to showcase your product in the spectacular outdoors and catch the eye of the visitor to your site with panoramic sweeping views or action sequences captured via the drone platform.

Site Page Banners

Site page banners are always a great place to leverage video content as it is the first thing people see on any give site page. Why not throw a gorgeous slow-motion montage of drone footage that shows your office on your ‘about us’ page? It’s a perfect place to show off some expert video skill as well as give a real tour of your workspace and give the viewer something to set the scene and connect to your company even more.

Many companies like to describe the working environment and how their products are made but talking about it can only get you so far. Grab your drone and record a fly through video to show everyone how what your culture looks like physically and how you produce your product in an environmentally and labor friendly manner. It can be effective with your team in their workspace, your production facility, shipping facility, placement of your product in major retailers or demonstrating your products outside.

How to properly use a teleprompter for your next video production.

Video and the internet have changed the way we communicate. But one thing has not changed: the impact of a human face in communication. Humans naturally connect with the image of a human face…whether in a video or in person. And many times, that face on video is talking straight into the camera…. And a teleprompter.

A teleprompter is a tool that displays scripted material in front of a lens, allowing a spokesman to deliver messages while looking directly into the camera lens. It’s an extremely useful tool.  With recent improvements in screen technology, teleprompters have become smaller and more accessible.

As useful as it is, it is not a magic bullet. There are a few techniques to make it work well.

It’s important to remember that a teleprompter is only as good as its script

Write your script to be spoken, not read. Use conversational language that works for the audience you are trying to reach. Shorter words are better, and so are short sentences..

Along with trying to speak to the audience in a language they understand, it’s also important for the spokesperson to be comfortable with the language. It the presenter is struggling with long sentences or unfamiliar language, the audience can feel lost.

There’s no substitute for practice. The more you practice and personalize the text, the more you’ll put meaning to the words.

Practice reading your script aloud. Take it into the bathroom, and practice reading it into a mirror. Change the language to match your speaking style. Make it yours.

A teleprompter can also be used as guide for an interview or testimonial, when the person being recorded is not looking directly into the lens.

Here at St Louis Video Production, we have a lot of experience helping clients be “the best they can be” on camera. For more information, please give us a call.
