Talking heads for web
High broadband proliferation means watching video online wherever you are in the world is possible. More and more clients are asking us to create simple video to put on their website, or on video sites such as YouTube. In response we have a service tailored to this, called 'Talking heads for web'. These simple videos are perfect for profit announcements, company news reports, quarterly financial reports etc. Following our tried and tested methodology, it can be done in a day too!
How it works - a simple, one day serviceUsing the latest equipment and a tested work flow it is possible to have a very fast turnaround, meaning from filming to creating a web friendly video file can be done in one day. This of course keeps costs down. We use powerful MacBook Pro laptops which we bring with us on the day, effectively bringing a mobile edit suite to the shoot.
A typical day would run along these timings;
|8.30-10.00||Set up shoot. Training given if required, script preparation and rehearsal|
|10.00-12.00||Filming, breakdown kit
|12.00-2.00||Digitising and preparation for the edit|
|2.00-4.00||Editing, add titles and logos, 2-8 minute video created. Client signs off video
|4.00-5.00||Encoding into flash/ H264/ WMV, and uploading time|
What it looks like
There are 2 styles of presenting we would recommend. When talking 'to' camera you connect directly to the audience. This is normally the best way to present but requires being able to maintain good eye contact with the camera, which some people find difficult. We can provide and autocue if required. Some people prefer to speak to a person rather than a camera, hence we would the shoot with the interviewee looking 'off' camera, as shown below;
