Most likely, you have played a video on your device minutes before reading this blog, so you know how important video is for reaching your customers. It’s probably been on your list of things to do and you’ve either been overwhelmed at the thought of it, or you have tried to do it yourself with a smartphone. Producing a video can be a huge investment for start-ups and small businesses. I have encountered several small business owners who have described this scenario to me. It’s tricky! The digital landscape is constantly changing. Gone are the days where a business can just upload one really awesome all-encompassing (and expensive) video, and call it a day. You need to have on-going engagement with your audience, look professional, and meet the growing needs of your customers.
Somebody needs to fill that gap for businesses that can’t afford a huge investment in video content, but need it to get their message out. Thespis Media offers a way to help businesses and entrepreneurs get basic high quality videos quickly and simply, without going over budget. We are now booking Express Video Sessions in our studio for limited times each month.
Here’s how it works… we set up our studio with a basic background with full lighting and sound for the day, then we book multiple clients back to back for their express sessions. The set can be slightly adjusted for each client throughout the day. It’s similar to the portrait studio method, only it’s more complex with video. Each client writes their own :60 second script ahead of time and our producer prepares it in the teleprompter prior to sessions. They also submit their logo and up to 3 still images that will be edited into the final video. Plan to spend 2 hours of your time at the studio. We spend the first hour shooting your 1 minute scripted video on a single camera, with teleprompter. Then you sit with the editor to pick the best “take” for editing and we have your video pitch/announcement ready within 24 hours! These are meant to be very basic messages. This style of video works best as a business pitch, company update or product announcement. Thespis Media produced an example of this express video service for Leah Gourlie of Lala Custom Cake a few weeks ago. Check it out!
Express Video Session: LaLa Custom Cake Announcement
When I surveyed Leah about her experience and using the teleprompter instead of memorizing her script, she said “It was a great experience! I expected to feel much more nervous and awkward but the whole process was so relaxed it was easy to be more of myself on camera!”
Many clients have taken advantage of this simple opportunity for regular video updates on social media. If you would like this for your company, space is limited, so book with us as soon as possible. When you contact us, mention the code below so you can get the special $350 deal!
