Video production is a big part of advertising agencies. There are so many ways to successfully advertise your company or business today and one of the best ways to do so is by creating videos. Good advertising agencies have the tools and abilities to create quality videos that will promote your product or service successfully, and there are actually quite a few steps in creating successful videos. Let’s touch on the five main ones: Development, Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production, and Marketing.
The first thing you and your video production team need to do is to develop ideas for your shoot. Some of the things you will want to discuss and have decided by the end of this step are who you want in the video, who your audience is, what your budget is, and what your end goals are. In this step, it crucial for you as a client to speak up and get your ideas across to the video production team.
The next step for video production teams within advertising agencies is the pre-production stuff. This step includes anything and everything that needs to be done before filming to ensure success. Things like script writing, auditions, hiring and preparing a crew, making schedules, buying equipment, selecting wardrobes and more. This is a very important step as it includes a lot of things that are crucial to the video’s success.
This step may seem pretty straightforward. The production step is simply that- the production; the step when all the preparation proves to be worth it. Directors and producers work together to film all the shots and scenes needed for the video. Obviously, depending on the video, the production step may take different amounts of time from a few hours to a few days. It is still important at this stage, as it is at all stages, to make sure you are communicating with the director and producer to make sure your video is going the way you want it to.
Again, this step may seem pretty obvious. Post-production at advertising agencies is when editors go into the footage and edit it. They add visual effects and music. edit out mistakes and adjust color. At this stage, video production teams also generate publicity content (depending on your video.) Like the other steps, post-production can be pretty quick or it can take a lot of time, depending on your personal situation.
