TYPES OF VIDEOS

 

Branding/promo/PR videos

A 2-5 minute promotional/PR video that explains about, or positions and promotes a company, or a person, its/his/her philosophy, passions, achievements, products or services, often amplified with video testimonials, and often ending with a call to action. Often used on the front page of a web site, or on YouTube, or linked to in emails.

Examples:

https://jorynjenkins.com/ (example where the company founder is featured talking to the camera, with achievements and testimonials)

https://www.axiomint.com/#single/0 (example that is all stock footage with voice-over and text animations)

When it's a fast-paced overview, it's sometimes called a sizzle reel.

Facebook and Instagram video ads, and cover videos

Facebook video ads are short videos - usually from 10 seconds to a minute or so - often with text overlaid on them (as Facebook defaults to sound volume off), used to advertise in the Facebook feed, and they reputedly currently convert better than picture ads or text ads.

Examples:

https://videosforanybudget.com/ - most anything on this page could be used as a Facebook video ad - and these are Instagram vertical ads: https://videosforanybudget.com/product-category/vertical/

A Facebook cover video is the header at the top of a company Facebook page, but as a video instead of an image. Used for company advertising or positioning purposes.

Examples:

https://videosforanybudget.com/ - scroll down to Facebook Video Headers

3D Logo animations

These are 2D logos that typically have been converted to 3D and animated as 10-20 second videos, and are used in front of and at the end of a company's other videos as a branding tool. Sometimes the logo is "revealed" after some other kind of other animation.

Green screen videos.

These are videos that are filmed in our green screen studio so that we can put the subject(s) in any kind of environment. This is often better than going to the subject's offices, as it's a much more controllable environment.

Event promo

This is typically a short video promoting an upcoming event. These are sometimes done "sizzle-style".

Example (non-sizzle-style):

Explainer videos

These are usually cartoon-style videos that explain about a company, product or service. There are claims of these being very effective. Some companies charge thousands of dollars for these due to how long they typically take to create. New software systems available can dramatically speed this process up.
