Some thing we have learn
During our many excursions traveling across the bay recording video introductions we have picked up a few tips and useful techniques that we can share with you today.
Let us start by asking, what goes into a “perfect” video instruction? It’s actually quite interesting, none of the best videos are perfect but they do all tell a genuine story-about 90 seconds long.
Videos turn out fine even when vendors fumble over their words once or twice as long as their story is clear. People seriously love stories. Everyone wants to hear the story of how your business started and the story of what your business does.
Before recording vendor spend time thinking about what brought them to where they are today and what makes them uniquely good at what they do. This might be something that you already know and if not you can contemplate. In most case this video will act as a first impression.
It is simple to make a great video introduction no matter who you are, but it takes work. If you want to be your best, practice and take breaks. All videos are single shot and are typically recorded on a mobile phone. This is so vendors can record and re-record without having to worry about eating.
It is sometimes tempting to do it all in one sitting, but after record for too long voices start to sound robotic and loose cadence. Some vendors practice recording before and after they work a wedding. Even though they might not capture the perfect shot, they typically perform with the same excitement and energy that they bring to their event. Other vendors prefer recording at their place of work and many choose to journey outside and record in nature.
No matter where you go, take your time, think about why your profession is meaningful to you and do not flinch when you mess up, just keep going. The video is just for you to watch until you are ready to upload it. Happy recording!
