How Is Video Production Changing In 2021?
Below are the trends in video production have we’ve foreseen to carry onto 2021:
- Duration Is Not As Important
If you used to stress over having extremely long or incredibly short videos, stress no more! People nowadays aren’t quite particular over video duration. As long as you share the content that you mean to share, your viewers won’t mind. What is important is that your video gives a lasting impression to your viewers. It should be appealing, and employ the tone that you intend to.
For businesses using explainer videos (videos that leave a short introduction to your company or describe a product/service), it might look like longer videos are more preferred by your target audience. However, it’s good to know that as long as you get your point across, the duration of your video will not matter.
- Spending More Won’t Necessarily Get You More Views
There is no need for you to spend all of your budget to produce a single video. Having a set budget for video production and a set budget for marketing is already enough to spread brand awareness. It is much better for you to think of content that will leave a good impact to your audience. After which, your audience will be the ones to share your videos to their family and peers. If your video has enough impact, those people will search for your company or service by the time that they need it.
Businesses that tend to pour all their cash into a video producer or hire someone to make the fanciest video but forget to market properly end up with a video of high quality but have no viewers.
- People Appreciate Authentic Storytelling
Because COVID-19 inspired compassion and empathy during these hard times, people now appreciate authenticity and prefer genuine storytelling instead of made up fiction. If you want your video to be inspiring, it is best that you derive a story from your personal life. Your struggles, the journey to where you achieved in life, and what you want to achieve for the rest of your life.
On the business side of things, you want to share how your product of service will affect the life of a prospective customer. If you’re offering services like accounting or IT, you might want to appeal to how you can improve their businesses by giving aid or advice.
- Interactive Video Content Is All The Rage
In the past few years, we’ve seen the rise in interactive video content. These interactive videos are relatively new in the video production scene. Imagine that in a video, you are able to select different kinds of options (usually icons) that bring up information about a company, service, or product. Interactive videos are in the form of commercials and are also usually mobile-friendly.
Interactive videos are also great for business purposes as it encourages a lot more engagement to your target audience. Although it’s a relatively new concept, there are already different software that you can use to create such videos.
Wirewax is one of the most well-known Interactive Video producers on the market. It’s partnered with big brands like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and many others. What’s neat about Wirewax is that you can pick from their annual or monthly subscriptions based on whether you’re a small business or big enterprise.
