What has changed in the world of video production in the last 10 years?

Videography has become more complicated in recent years.

Studies show that consumer expectations, and therefore their video consumption habits, are changing in 2020’s.

Today, a commercial videographer must understand how a video they create will be consumed, as well as the message being communicated. Is the video for TV, YouTube, TikTok or for business trainings.

Video isn't going anywhere, and it is always expanding, changing, and evolving to fit consumer preferences and new platforms — and advertisers must keep up. The 30-second broadcast ad spot has been the standard for generations but the internet has provided so many new platforms from which to present video advertising. Here we discuss the basics of good TV and internet advertising spots.

Today, video is being consumed on every major social media platform, as well as in google search windows and a myriad of other places online. All these platforms have specific requirements that will make videos as successful that they can be and compete for audience attention with all the other video advertisements being produced.

An increasingly common form of video presentations are corporate branding, which refers to a company's image or identity and the way it's presented to customers. A brand video typically represents a company’s values, brand voice and messaging, not just their products and services alone. Increasingly, consumers are relying on marketing and advertising videos to promote the brand name of a corporate entity. This is very different than when, in the past, consumers visited websites, read online reviews, and watched traditional commercials, and maybe a YouTube video or two to evaluate a product or service. Brand videos are usually short-form videos: under 3 minutes seems to fall into the sweet spot of today’s attention spans. Consumers are seeking quick, snappy videos about company brands that are entertaining or informative the entire time.
