Establishing a Goal
Any work to be done in the correct manner always requires a proper goal to be set. The case is similar while making Video Ads. It is utterly important to set an aim as it paves the way for a better understanding in making the video. Video ads are made for 5 basic reasons-
- Increase Brand Awareness
- Drive Traffic
- ducate The Consumers
- Drive Sales
- Increase Consumer Engagement
It is even necessary to list down the number of goals you have or how many ideas you have to make the video. Too many ideas into one video can confuse the audience so it is preferable to stick to the best one and start implementing it.
Set your tone by choosing a direction
Video Ads do have a purpose behind it. You know why you are making this Video but you should also be clear as to what direction the video will lead to. You can be making a Video Ad for introducing your company as a startup or maybe for your clients when you want to expand the already existing company to another level. Choosing your direction would make the work easier as it lets you set themes in accordance with your goal. For example, you can make a Video Ad to derive sales by getting the audience in action, or to educate the consumers about your policies and what you intend to offer, or maybe just use it for endorsement purposes to generate higher ROI.
Once your direction is finalized, you move on to the next step of setting a tone. Setting a tone is just the same as giving genres to any film or story. After all, creating a Video Ad is no less than creating a story in picture. Different tones resemble different kinds of creativity in your concept. Some of them are dramatic, informative, playful, humorous, entertaining, inspirational and many such more, to name a few. This might give you some ideas to get your video to life.
Video Ads always have a specific duration in which they are to be timed and shot. It is certainly definite that you might be thinking how to time out the video length without planning a script. However, that is the most potential forms of making your video look organized. With putting restrictions to your concept, it will only make your video stronger and effective as your theme has to be unfolded within that period of time. This will help you avoid unnecessary wastage of time, especially in editing stages.
Nowadays the video ads have also been minimized in length overpowering the traditional ways. 10-15 seconds videos have replaced the long 30 seconds-1 minute videos making it suitable for the audience to watch it. Different social media platforms post such ads to engage with mass consumers. You can finalize your budget in accordance with your duration and the kind of location you choose.
Duration sets the actual base of what your video will look like.
In this stage you decide what kind of style would you like to apply in your video ad. Some general categories include animated style, real life characters being involved, B-Roll, live action and many others to name a few. However, it is not necessary that you apply just one style to your video. You can mix up real life characters with the animated ones and form a video. Or you could use narrative style videos that use a combination of main shots and b-roll footage. The combinations are limitless.
To get the style in sync, the above factors i.e. goal, direction, tone and duration should be in accordance and influence your visual style.
The Final Execution
Now is finally the time to get your imaginary appeal to life and start executing the main purpose. Once all the fundamental work is completed, you can start outlining your story idea. It is preferable to jot down all the main points you feel can make up an awesome video. This overview can help decide the details of your story such as how many characters will be needed and of what kind, how many scenes will be shot, the voiceover of the character, how the product shall fit in, what props could be used, locations and many such factors helping build the story.
You can finally start laying out the script for example which scenes will be shot first(scene number 1, 2 or 3), which scene will have whose voice(if it is a voiceover), etc. After the script is made, the next step comes making the Storyboard. Storyboard is not only important for you and your team but also for artists, actors, directors so that they get a clear cut idea about the video implementation. However, it is not necessary that the storyboard has to perfectly match with what happens in the scene, the only purpose it serves is to be a guide.
The post production process of the ad making is just the same as that of a film shoot. However, video ads as being in the trend nowadays are facing the digital world. It’s time for you to finally start mapping out your idea! Do let us know how your story goes!
