When it comes to hiring a professional firm or setting up your very own video production, there are a lot of factors involved with the process, as well as a lot of work that goes into pulling the whole thing off. From picking the right music, and to setting up the lighting, the world of video production is quite exciting. There’s nothing quite like seeing the end result of a video that you helped worked on.
One of the most important roles that go into a video is the script. After all, while the images do convey the story that you want to tell, the words that you use to tell the story hold just as much weight as the images do. So to guarantee maximum effectivity and impact from your video, here are some tips that you should keep in mind when you’re coming up with a script for your video.
Keep it short
Save the full-length novels for your next bestseller. When it comes to videos, you’re meant to grab viewers’ attention in a very short span of time, unless you’re directing a full-length feature. Keep your scripts short, concise, and to the point. Don’t over complicate your language, and keep your sentences short.
Keep your users engaged without boring them, and make sure that you have someone who isn’t familiar with your industry review it first before proceeding with your script. This guarantees that it is understood by a layperson, and not just by people involved with your industry and company.
Watch your tone
The tone that you use to set the mood for your video can make a significant impact on how viewers will receive your video. Sometimes, you can do some research into your target audience, and tailor your script to appeal to that audience. However, the main thing to keep in mind is that you’re meant to engage your viewers, so your video should be interesting and useful to your viewers.
Make sure the story you tell has coherence
Remember that your script is what you’ll be using to tell the story behind your video, so like any good story, it should have a good flow and transition. While it is difficult to present a conflict and a climax, you can use those basic point of storytelling to present your video to an audience. You can begin your script by presenting a basic problem that your business or product can solve. Follow it up by presenting a solution that shows viewers why they should choose your services or product over any other.
