When deciding to produce a video it is vital to have a clear idea what you want to achieve and plan it out.  The following issues should be considered:

  • Storyboard or sketch your ideas down to get a better picture of how you want your video to turn out.
  • Who is your audience?
  • What do you want to tell them?
  • Do you want to show them something and do a voiceover, lecture them or a combination of the two formats?
  • Location: Where do you want to record? – your own premises, our office, somewhere else, combination?
  • Do you intend to use a script or are you going to ad lib?  If using a script you need to practice to make the presentation personal and not seem artificial.

Some Tips:

  • Be alive!  Act like you’re talking to someone not like you’re reading from a script.
  • When practicing you should not stare at the “camera”, or any individual object.  Even if you stay facing the “camera”, shift your weight, use limited hand gestures, speak with more than monotone, and use your face to reinforce your words.
  • Get straight to the point! Try not to ramble on about random things.
  • If you have a lot to say break it down into modules and plan to make short clips – unless you are making a movie.
  • What is your deadline?   Do you want a once off video or regular video updates?
  • What is your budget?
