Connecting with individuals that have important stories to tell is something that we truly enjoy. We find part of our purpose within this type of work and often find that it speaks to our sense of WHY we do what we do.

Many subject matter experts as well as individuals who have allowed themselves to be vulnerable on-camera with us have acknowledged that we are very good at what we do. Making that connection with people so that they feel comfortable and safe with us is a skill that we covet and take a significant amount of pride in. It’s part of what creates a great documentary film full of interesting information and authentic emotion. But best of all, it keeps us growing, not only as filmmakers but also as people.

Testimonial Videos:

A great testimonial video is authentic, the best way to achieve this is to be spontaneous and don’t use a script! When you ask people GREAT questions they will usually give you even GREATER answers!
Keep it short! If a video is longer than 2 minutes your viewer will start to lose interest.
The best testimonial videos demonstrate specific information about how your product or service benefited your customer. Use precise stories and examples, not generalizations.
Real people make mistakes. If someone says the odd ‘um or uh’ it’s alright. It shows authenticity. These videos don’t need to be perfect but they do need to be real!
Take your time, breathe, allow your customer to get comfortable in front of a camera and don’t rush them.
Filming should take 20 minutes or less, so your customer doesn’t get stressed or tired.
Use a professional company to get the best quality videos. A professional will know how to light and position your customers, also how to edit the videos to make everyone look and sound fantastic!
Make sure your testimonials answer crucial questions potential customers may have about your product or service, such as: Is it easy? Does it work? Can I do it?
Keep it interesting. It is a great idea to include some related footage of your product or service to demonstrate what your company does.

Training & Demonstration:

“How to” video for training, education, explanation and software demonstration has become a “must have” resource for most companies in today’s information rich and fast paced world. People want the quickest path to learn and understand what is being offered and how it works – and, it should come as no surprise that VIDEO is the preferred medium of choice.

So, how can you make your training or “explainer” video the most effective and achieve the results you are looking for? The answer starts with proper planning to develop a script that will have impact on the viewer. Below you will find some of the questions we ask during Mastermind planning sessions for developing software demonstration video with clients. The planning process usually has at least two parts. It begins with the overall “strategic planning” for the video, and this in turn speaks to the planning around script development and the messaging you wish to convey. This strategic planning also helps to determine things like presentations style, choice of voice-over/ narration artist, and overall filming and presentation treatment.
