  • 20. Compelling characters, great stories, and a natural audience Cougar Dugout UCLA and The G.I. Bill
  • 21. What is your story? • Stand for something • Exposition, Persuasion, Description & Narration • Less is more • Find balance between “saying” and “showing” • Turn opinion in your favor, inspire consideration
  • 22. Where do I start? • Identify the mission (scope) • Identify the audience and your client • Identify the creative team and resources available • Planned versus opportunistic topics • “Always on” • Manage assets and honor the brand voice
  • 23. Production tips: interviewing • Use people who want to be on camera • Brief them ahead of time • Put subject at ease – start simple • Have them re-state the question when answering it • Have/make them look good!
  • 24. Production tips: composition and lighting Basic 2 DSLR and 3 Point Lighting System As seen left this financial services client, we go for close and medium angles with the subjects plus a shallow depth of field with live background plus cooler color temperature plus about seventy-five percent of the key light.
  • 25. Production tips: audio • Bad, faulty audio will destroy your project • Always test • Use headphones • Use best microphone for the job: shotgun, lavalier, or omni-directional
  • 26. Closing Thoughts • Content Marketing is on the tip of everyone’s tongue • Our clients are starting to embrace it and expecting change • Getting direction to solve content needs with increasingly smaller budgets, and at real time speeds • But clients not satisfied with low budget corporate video shooters or the fact that ad agencies won’t answer the phone for under $100,000
  • 27. Closing Thoughts • Maybe, Fight Club is an apt but ironic reference It’s premise is that advertising makes us want things we don’t need (i.e. $30,000 more in student loans) But, it’s important to get a grasp on the evolving world of what we once called advertising and public relations Now to some, “paid” and “earned” media But whatever we call it — it should work so well – you don’t mind that it’s a sales pitch at all
