Remotely Directed Video - No Crew Required
There are several reasons that you may not want a video crew to come to your location to shoot:
► Covid-19 lockdown
► The people that will be shown on your video are working from home
► Those people are in another location
► You don't want the expense of a video crew, locally or anywhere else.
► You're too lazy to get up and go to the office (just kidding!)
Regardless of the reason, that does NOT mean that your business video marketing has to come to a standstill.
These days you are probably using Zoom or Webex or another platform to communicate among employees, team members, etc. And while that helps to keep the lines of communication open and aid in collaboration, it does little to help you market your business. Zoom is great to see each other, share ideas and even your screen, but it does not provide HD video that is worthy of your external company image, like a decent video camera provides.
Zoom users have been frustrated with frozen screens and poor - or even lost - connections.
This is especially troublesome when the internet is strained with countless people working from home, doing their schooling and talking with relatives. We just can not rely on a consistent connection – or video quality – with Zoom or Webex.
Fortunately, we use a video platform that allows high-quality remote video production at your home or office, and we do not need to send out a video crew. This is a great way to produce HD videos without coming into physical contact or proximity with one another.
The key to the quality of the video is that we can use the excellent camera quality on your smartphone to record video.
Once it is captured on your phone, this high-quality footage is uploaded to us for editing after the recoding session is completed.
The high quality of cell phone cameras is more than adequate for us to serve as your professional video directors, and we can guide you through the shoot remotely.
What about audio?
Let’s face it, the quality of cell phone audio is not good enough to make a marketing or communications video worthy of your company’s image. So we send a microphone to you, which will record much better audio quality.
Similarly, to create solid video without shaking, we send you a small tripod, more than capable of supporting a cell phone.
As with all other video productions, the editing takes place in our broadcast-quality edit suite, where we can add graphics, music, narration, etc. to make your video something you will be proud of.
We have partnered with OpenReel to use their platform to make this professional HD video production process work for you. Here is an example of a video shot using this unique platform:
So don’t give up on your video marketing campaigns just because we are all hunkered down.
Technology has given us the ability to create professional-looking high-quality HD videos for your business without ever setting foot in your offices or facility.
So contact us, and we’ll share more about how Penrose Productions can help you navigate your video shoot without a crew onsite.
