A quality video should be a feast for the eyes with with lots of color, movement and emotional appeal that blend together to tell a story. This is why businesses go to video making professionals like the animation studios in singapore to get the perfect video first time. It saves a lot of time and energy for your business. You don’t need to worry about learning how to make a perfect video to promote your services when there are experts out there wanting to do it for you. However, some people want to take the task on themselves.
But when you’re in the beginning stages of your production staring at a blank monitor, how do you come up with the ingredients you need to prepare what will hopefully qualify as a real visual feast? A quality video is the goal! How do you get there? Especially if the assignment is a bit mundane?
All the videos on this page were created with common elements brought together to hopefully be a feast!
In the real world, sticking with the feast analogy, certainly not every video is Thanksgiving. Not every video has that kind of a budget. And let’s face it, some videos are really just audios with pictures. What I mean by that is often, a video producer or editor’s biggest challenge is to concoct visuals to accompany a voice track that has no “real” video to go with it. In the best of all worlds, every video would be creatively driven by compelling, storytelling visuals. Since we’re not, we often have to make it work with much less.
I rescue video projects that suffer from having no video by finding royalty free, generic animations and images that pertains to the broad category. Then, I add some customized graphics.
Like the videos on this page, all of which would fall into the category of generic sales video. A type of video most people want to do! Use the videos on this page as templates.
The videos on this page are a perfect example.
I wanted the finished videos to be something more than a power point presentation with plain graphics, which is so common online, so I added some spectacular royalty free animations.
I try to keep the pace fairly rapid in order to keep the video lively. I changed the animations about every 20 seconds. I changed the words as often as it seemed logical, trying to match the flow. I moved the words on and off the screen with key frame animation of the crop feature.
Since professional video production and editing can be so time consuming (and therefore expensive), it’s always a wise idea to develop little tricks to make you more efficient. One of my tricks is to re-use elements from video to video, just changing minor parameters for the new video. This is usually much faster than creating new elements from scratch,.
If you’re doing a series of videos, whatever visual theme you develop means part #1 can take a long time but subsequent parts are largely a cut and paste affair. Having the elements themselves already created, and only needing minor tweaking saves tons of time.
Efficient producing and editing often involve re-using and re-adapting elements you time-consumingly built for another project. Keeping a good stock pile of video images and graphic elements helps you deliver better and more diversified final products. It’s much easier to grab a few shots out of an old project than it is to re-shoot similar video. In fact, it simply isn’t practical to re-shoot all the time so if you want visually diverse videos, keep good track of file footage.
I hope these suggestions help you make better videos more effectively and efficiently!
