Navigating the Challenges of In-House Video Production

Building upon our previous four-part blog series on the art of making a video, we now delve into the intricacies of in-house video production. While the concept of managing video projects internally may seem appealing, it comes with its unique set of challenges. In this blog post, we’ll explore common pitfalls that can cause in-house projects to go over budget and timeline, risking never getting completed. We’ll also discuss the benefits of partnering with SpotOn Productions for your video production needs and what sets us apart from the rest.

Challenges of In-House Video Production

  • Lack of Expertise: Without a dedicated team of experienced professionals, in-house video projects can suffer from a lack of expertise. From scriptwriting and filming to editing and post-production, each stage requires specialized skills that may not be readily available within your organization.
  • Resource Constraints: In-house video production often means working with limited resources, including equipment, software, and manpower. This can lead to delays and compromises in quality as teams struggle to work with what they have.
  • Scope Creep: Without clear project boundaries and objectives, in-house video projects are susceptible to scope creep. Additional requests and changes can quickly pile up, leading to delays and budget overruns.
  • Quality Control: Maintaining consistent quality across multiple in-house projects can be challenging, especially without established processes and standards in place. Without proper oversight and quality control measures, the final product may fall short of expectations.
  • Time Constraints: In-house teams often juggle multiple responsibilities, making it difficult to prioritize and allocate time for video production. This can result in delays and missed deadlines as projects take longer than anticipated to complete.

Part 4: Post-Production | Putting The Pieces Together: Crafting Your Video Masterpiece

Welcome back to the final installment of our blog series on the art of making a video. We’ve journeyed through the discovery, pre-production, and production phases, and now it’s time to bring it all together in the post-production phase. This is where your raw footage transforms into a polished masterpiece, complete with a compelling storyline, captivating visuals, and the perfect soundtrack. In this blog post, we’ll explore the essential elements of post-production, including creating a storyline, editing your footage, adding music and graphics, and applying the finishing touches.

The Post-Production Process

Storyline: The first step in post-production is crafting a compelling storyline that engages your audience and effectively communicates your message. Your script or messaging outline from the pre-production phase is a great guide for creating your storyline. Review your raw footage and organize it into a cohesive narrative structure, focusing on pacing, flow, and emotional resonance.

  • Tip: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different editing techniques to enhance your storyline. Use cuts, transitions, and visual effects to create tension, build anticipation, and evoke emotion.

Editing: Once you have a solid storyline in place, it’s time to edit your footage to bring that vision to life. This involves trimming, rearranging, and enhancing your clips to create a seamless and engaging viewing experience.

  • Tip: Keep your audience in mind as you edit. Cut out any unnecessary or repetitive footage to maintain their interest and keep the pacing tight.

Music & Graphics: Adding the perfect soundtrack and graphics can elevate your video to new heights. Choose music that complements the mood and tone of your video, and incorporate graphics that enhance your message and branding.

  • Tip: Pay attention to copyright laws when selecting music for your video. Many websites offer royalty-free music for commercial use.

Finishing Touches: With the main elements of your video in place, it’s time to apply the finishing touches. This may include color correction, audio mastering, and finalizing any visual effects or animations.

  • Tip: Take the time to review your video multiple times to ensure everything is perfect. Pay attention to details such as audio levels, color consistency, and visual coherence.

Post-production is where your video truly comes to life, as you weave together all the elements to create a polished and professional final product. By following the steps outlined in this blog post, you can ensure that your video resonates with your audience and achieves your objectives. We hope you’ve found this blog series helpful on your journey to creating a video masterpiece.

While our blog series may be coming to an end, your video journey is just beginning. We encourage you to continue exploring and experimenting with different techniques and approaches to find what works best for your brand and audience. Thank you for joining us, and we wish you the best of luck on your video-making adventures! If you find that you need help crafting your next video, the professionals at SpotOn Productions are ready to work with you to create your next bespoke video that inspires.

Part 3: Production | Lights, Camera, Action!

Welcome back to our blog series on the art of making a video. With the groundwork laid during the discovery and pre-production phases, it’s time to bring your vision to life in the production phase. This is where the magic happens as lights, camera, and action come together to capture your captivating footage. In this blog post, we’ll explore the essential elements of production, including setting up lights, capturing footage, and incorporating animation if required.

The Production Process

Lights: Proper lighting is essential for creating visually stunning footage. Whether you’re shooting indoors or outdoors, lighting can make or break your video. Take the time to set up your lights correctly, paying attention to factors such as brightness, color temperature, and shadow control. Leaning into practical lighting (external sources like the sun or existing lights in a room) can not only save time but also create a more authentic look.

  • Tip: Experiment with different lighting setups to achieve the desired mood and atmosphere for your video. Don’t be afraid to get creative!

Camera: The camera is your primary tool for capturing footage, so it’s essential to choose the right equipment for your project. Whether you’re using a professional camera or a smartphone, focus on factors such as resolution, frame rate, and lens choice to achieve the desired look and feel.

  • Tip: Invest in a quality tripod or stabilizer to ensure smooth, steady shots. This will help elevate the production value of your video.

Action: With lights and camera in place, it’s time to roll and capture your footage. Whether you’re filming interviews, product demonstrations, or scripted scenes, focus on capturing compelling visuals that align with your creative vision.

  • Tip: Communicate clearly with your talent and crew to ensure everyone is on the same page regarding the desired outcome of each shot. Encourage creativity and spontaneity while staying true to your storyboard or shot list.

Animation (if required): If your project requires animation, this is the stage where it will be incorporated into the footage. Whether you’re adding motion graphics, visual effects, or animated characters, ensure seamless integration with the live-action footage for a cohesive final product.

  • Tip: Work closely with your animators or graphic designers to ensure consistency in style and tone with the rest of your video. Provide clear direction and feedback throughout the process to achieve the desired result.

BONUS – Sound: A majority of the time, your video will require capturing audio or sound. Good audio can be just as, if not more, important than the video. Think of watching a video with mute turned on…you might get a vague idea of what is happening, but the audio really carries the message. Conversely, if the video picture is mediocre, but the audio is solid, you can easily follow along with the message. Make sure the microphone is as close to your audio source as possible to capture quality sound, avoiding the hollow-sounding empty room, and check to make sure you don’t have static or scratching in your track.

  • Tip: Monitor your sound as you record. A good pair of headphones is invaluable for capturing quality audio.

Production is where your vision truly comes to life, as lights, camera, audio, and action combine to capture captivating footage. Click here for the final blog post of this series, where we’ll explore the post-production phase and uncover the secrets to crafting a compelling storyline, adding the perfect soundtrack, and putting the finishing touches on your video masterpiece.

Part 2: Pre-Production | Laying the Foundation for Success

Welcome back to our blog series on the art of making a video. Now that we’ve completed the Discovery phase and have a clear vision for our project, it’s time to dive into Pre-Production. This critical stage involves meticulous planning and preparation to ensure a seamless production process. In this blog post, we’ll explore the essential steps of Pre-Production, including the production brief, kick-off meeting, creative, logistics, scheduling, and creating a production plan.

The Pre-Production Process

Production Brief: The production brief serves as a roadmap for the entire pre-production phase. It outlines key details such as the project scope, objectives, target audience, creative direction, and budget. This document ensures alignment among all stakeholders and sets clear expectations for the project. If people ever have a question on the details of the video, the Production Brief should be the main source of core information for the project.

  • Tip: Be thorough when creating the production brief. Include as much detail as possible to avoid misunderstandings later in the process.

Kick-off Meeting: The kick-off meeting brings together all key stakeholders to discuss the project’s goals, timeline, roles, and responsibilities. This meeting sets the tone for collaboration and ensures everyone is on the same page before moving forward.

  • Tip: Encourage open communication and brainstorming during the kick-off meeting. This is an opportunity to generate ideas and address any concerns upfront.

Creative Messaging: Whether you’re writing a full script or writing your interview questions, this step is where you create the messaging that will carry your video. The video creation process absolutely starts with solid scripting and messaging. Once you have the words, you can then start to fill in the visuals of what you will show in your video. We highly recommend a two-column script format, with one column, the “Audio,” which contains the words of your script or messaging points, and the second “Video” column describing what will be seen on screen. The script should be broken up into smaller rows for each shot or scene of the video. Once you have a final approved script, you can move on to the next step.

Logistics, Scheduling & Creating a Production Plan: With the creative direction established, it’s time to focus on the practical aspects of production. This includes securing locations, hiring crew members, arranging gear and equipment rentals, booking talent (if needed), and creating a detailed production schedule. A well-thought-out production plan is essential for keeping the project on track and within budget. Your production plan should include a detailed schedule for who, what, when, and where for every aspect (minute) of your production day(s).

  • Tip: Start early when it comes to logistics and scheduling. Popular locations and equipment rentals can book up quickly, so it’s best to secure them as soon as possible.

Pre-production is where the magic begins to take shape. By laying a solid foundation and planning every detail with care, you set yourself up for success in the production phase. From setting up lights to capturing captivating footage, we cover it all right over here in the third blog post in this series. 

Part 1: Discovery | Navigating the Path to Your Vision

Embarking on the journey of creating a video is an exciting endeavor for any business. However, before diving into the production process, it’s crucial to embark on the path of discovery. This initial phase lays the foundation for a successful video project by understanding your objectives, audience, and message. In this blog post, we’ll explore the essential steps of the discovery process, including the Sherpa Process and Creative Treatment creation.

The Discovery Process

The Sherpa Process to Discovery: Just like climbing a mountain, creating a video requires a guided process to show you where you’re going. Our Sherpa Process involves identifying a dedicated team or individual within your organization who will lead the project from start to finish. This person will serve as the primary point of contact, ensuring clear communication and accountability throughout the video creation process.

  • Tip: Choose someone with strong project management skills and a clear understanding of your brand and objectives.
    The Sherpa framework is designed to elevate your video project to new heights by helping you visualize a clear path eliminating any uncertainty, and making sure you have a clear goal for your video project. This involves analyzing your audience, story, competition, environment, narrative, message delivery, and direction. By conducting thorough research and analysis, you can uncover valuable insights that will inform your creative approach.
  • Tip: Don’t rush through this step. Take the time to gather data and insights that will shape the direction of your video.

A Clear Purpose: One of the most important pieces of the Discovery phase is making sure you have, and understand, your clear purpose for your video. Here are a few questions to make sure your video gets started on the right foot.

  • What is most inspiring about this/your story?
  • What makes the story different?
  • Who is the audience for this story?
  • How do you want the audience to feel after viewing it?
  • What do you want the audience to do after viewing?

Creative Treatment: With a solid understanding of your purpose, objectives, and audience, it’s time to develop a creative treatment. This document outlines the visual style, tone, and messaging of your video (not a script at this point), providing a roadmap for the creative team.

  • Tip: Be open to experimentation and collaboration during this stage. Encourage your team to brainstorm and explore different ideas before finalizing the creative treatment.

Video Blueprint Creation: The Video Blueprint is the blueprint for your entire project. It includes key details such as the project timeline, budget, needed people and resources, loose production schedule, and distribution plan. This document serves as a roadmap, guiding you through each of the following stages of the video production process.

  • Tip: Keep your Video Blueprint flexible. As the project progresses, you may need to make adjustments to accommodate changes in scope or timeline.

The Discovery phase is the crucial first step on your video production journey. By investing time and resources into understanding your purpose, objectives, audience, and message, you set the stage for a successful project. Check out the next step in the process where we explore the Pre-Production phase, where meticulous planning and preparation lay the groundwork for a seamless production process. Stay tuned for essential tips and insights to bring your video project to life!

Who owns the raw video footage?

This post continues the article ‘Who owns the video I made?’ If you haven’t read it yet, you can check it out here!

When we talk about footage, we mean all the footage/shots recorded in the entire filming process, sometimes called the “raw footage.” This question can be contentious with clients and production companies, but it shouldn’t have to be. As discussed in the previous article, this is something that needs to be discussed and agreed upon before any production begins. Getting the question of ownership in writing beforehand is essential to make sure everyone is clear from the beginning.

In the TV and film industry, it is standard practice to ensure contracts are in place for the creator, the director, and all the creative influence (i.e., camera, costume, make-up, etc.) and assign copyright to the producer. When creating something with multiple people, it is essential the issue of who owns the footage is cleared up before any filming is started.

However, in the smaller-scale corporate sector, it is not commonplace to address this problem up front. We make sure EVERY project has this in writing.

In our terms and conditions, SpotOn Productions retains the copyright on all work and original files (including raw footage). SpotOn Productions grants the client a perpetual, worldwide, fully paid up, nonexclusive license to reproduce, distribute, sell, publicly perform, publicly display, and transmit any of the produced materials and products created by SpotOn Productions and to prepare derivative works of the materials and products created. Unless otherwise noted in the proposal, the ownership of all original files remains with SpotOn Productions. Original files and raw footage can be provided to the client for an additional cost. We do not automatically assign copyright of the raw footage unless the client specifically stipulates it beforehand.

There are a few reasons why production companies do this, which may go some way to explain why it’s a contentious issue.

1. The Copyright

This is the big one, and it is mainly about protecting the rights of everyone involved. When you make a video, the production company will be very clear on what the video is for and where it will be displayed. They will then make sure everything is cleared for this and provide the licensing to you. More importantly, they will price it into the quote. This will not include the raw footage. Therefore if you think you will want the raw footage, mention it at the start of the process.

2. The Cost

Handing over raw footage does have a cost implication. If you imagine that on some high-end cameras an hour of footage can be 765 GB. If on a project, 10 hours of footage is filmed, that would be 7,650 GB! Nearly 8 terabytes of data! The hard-drive cost alone would be hundreds of dollars. On top of this, there is the time it would take to export all the data; it could run into 20+ hours of computer time.

3. The Loss of Future Work

Imagine being a chef and a customer comes to the kitchen and asks for all the ingredients and the secret recipe to your award-winning dish. That customer may only want to recreate the meal at home, or they may take that recipe to the restaurant next door so that another chef can make it at half the price.

In most cases, client motives are genuine and innocent. But that doesn’t stop production companies sweating with fear at the thought of the implication. They also worry that someone else is going to ruin their work. It does seem crazy, but most creative people have an attachment to their work, no matter who it is for. And the thought of someone tarnishing that is hard.

4. Seeing Us Naked

This is the silliest reason, but it has to be mentioned. With every great shot amongst the raw footage, there may be several bad shots that would “end up on the cutting room floor” (they never make the edit). Those shots may be ruined by minor tech issues, poor timing, sudden shifts in lighting, or by that one ‘videobomber’ staring at the camera. A camera operator may spend an hour trying to get the perfect shot. When reviewing the footage, minutes may be completely useless. These are not exactly a good reflection of their best work and something they won’t want others to see. But it is all totally worth it for that one great shot.

At the end of the day, whatever the reason, if you have a contract first with all this agreed upon, you won’t have any problems. One final note, it’s worth mentioning that although the production company holds the raw footage, it doesn’t mean they are free to do what they want with it and use it without first seeking your approval. In our case, we retain the right to use the finished videos in our portfolio or only some of the best shots in our demo reels.

As always, if you have any other questions about ownership, feel free to contact us.

Who Owns the Video I Made?

This is a very popular question we get asked. The reality is that different production companies will have their own terms and conditions. When terms aren’t clearly defined from the beginning, that is where you can run into uncertainties about who owns the footage. So regardless of what is written in the next few paragraphs, the most important advice we can give is to address the issue of ownership before you agree to anything.

We’re not lawyers, and the laws around copyright can be very complex. We can only speak from our experience creating video content for different organizations and uses. Our experience has taught us that just as clients will have certain terms and conditions in contracts, different production companies will also have different terms and conditions.

We like to think our terms and conditions are fair to both parties. However, when it comes to clients who already have their own set of terms, we are always willing to work together to ensure everyone is happy. In the majority of cases, there are never any issues. We like to think most production companies will be willing to compromise on most things as long as they are agreed upon beforehand.

Who owns the final video? And who owns all the footage?

The answer to these questions will change depending on the company producing your video (exactly why the question of ownership should be addressed at the start of the process). We can tell you what we do, and generally speaking, that is what most production companies do.

For us, it’s easy. We create a proposal that details exactly what we will supply, including the length of the video and where it will be shown. We then supply a final video based on those terms for the agreed-upon costs of everything included.

While we retain the artistic copyright, the use of that final video will be passed on to you. In 99% of cases, this is what happens, and it works great.

Problems arise when video usage changes. For example, if your video was originally intended to be used online but later decides to be used as a TV ad, this would be a change in usage. For this example, we would need a lot more time to discuss exactly how usage works, so for now, we’ll keep it short.

Video production is a creative industry, and unlike most industries that produce a product, we produce an idea instead. To produce that idea can involve 2 people or dozens of people. And like any industry, we have our own rules and standards. A key element of the rules is rates of pay. Depending on where that idea will be seen and how many people will see it will have a huge effect on those rates. The usage of a video is vital when getting a price and understanding it when you take ownership of that video.

When you make a video, it is the production company’s responsibility to ensure the usage rights needed for the video’s purpose are cleared. This includes permissions from those appearing on screen, music, voice-over, any external crew permissions, and location permissions. Indeed, some of these you might be able to supply yourself, but it is the production company’s responsibility to check.

On completion of the project, the video is yours. We pass these clearances over to you, safe in the knowledge that these details have been addressed and satisfied.

What if you decide to change the usage? Well, if you decide to change the usage of that video, it becomes your responsibility to make sure the clearances still apply.

In the majority of cases, there won’t be any extra costs, as usage costs will not apply. The most relevant time this would have a dramatic impact is if a video for online use suddenly is used for broadcast, like on TV. If you change how and where the video is used, we highly recommend checking with us, especially if the project features actors, voice-over artists, or music. Licensing costs will most likely be affected.

We recommend talking with us and getting our advice.

This brings us to the next popular question: who owns the raw footage? This is perhaps a little more controversial… You can read our article on that subject here!

Navigating Talent Scarcity & Skills Gaps: The Role of Video in Recruitment

In an era marked by talent scarcity and widening skills gaps, organizations face mounting challenges in their recruitment efforts. As the demand for skilled professionals outpaces supply, organizations must adopt innovative strategies to attract and retain the right talent. Amid this landscape, the integration of video content emerges as a powerful solution for not only addressing these challenges but also for fostering a stronger employer brand.

The Reality of Recruitment Challenges

A recent article on SHRM delves into the pressing issues of talent scarcity and skills gaps and their impact on the recruitment landscape. Early this year, a SHRM survey of HR professionals found that “three-fourths (77 percent) reported difficulty recruiting for their full-time positions over the last 12 months.” As unemployment remains low, the number of open jobs far exceeds the number of available workers, especially as needed skills continue to change.

Skills relevant today are shifting rapidly, with predictions suggesting that job skills could change by as much as 68% by 2030 due to advancements in technology, particularly AI. This evolving landscape necessitates a proactive approach to talent acquisition and management. Traditional recruitment methods struggle to meet the demands of today’s competitive job market. However, it also underscores the potential of video content in revolutionizing the recruitment process.

Video: A Strategic Tool in Recruitment

Integrating video into recruitment processes offers a dynamic solution to these challenges. Video can showcase an organization’s culture, values, and mission, as well as highlight career growth opportunities, and detail training programs that address specific skills gaps. This approach not only enhances engagement but also builds a transparent and trustful relationship with potential candidates. Unlike static job postings or text-based descriptions, video offers a dynamic medium that immerses candidates in the organization’s environment. Through employee testimonials, day-in-the-life videos, and glimpses of the workplace, organizations can provide authentic insights into their culture, fostering a deeper connection with potential talent.

Video content allows organizations to differentiate themselves from competitors by showcasing their unique selling points. Whether highlighting innovative projects, employee benefits, or community initiatives, video enables companies to showcase what makes them stand out as employers of choice.

Cultivating an Employer Brand & Culture

Building an attractive employer brand is crucial, especially in sectors like healthcare and skilled trades, where talent shortages have been a longstanding issue. Video content that highlights an inclusive culture, commitment to employee development, and community involvement can significantly enhance an employer’s appeal.

The article also emphasizes the role of video in humanizing the organization and its leadership. Through interviews with executives, managers, and team members, candidates can gain a better understanding of the company’s values, leadership style, and vision. This transparency fosters trust and credibility, making the organization more appealing to top talent seeking alignment with their values and career goals.

SpotOn Productions’ Leading Experience with HR Culture, Recruiting & Onboarding Videos

As we navigate through the complexities of talent scarcity and skills gaps, it is clear that traditional recruitment methods need to be reevaluated. Video recruitment is not just a tool for engagement but a strategic asset in conveying the values and opportunities within an organization. By leveraging this medium, companies can not only fill immediate vacancies but also build a resilient and adaptable workforce ready for the challenges of tomorrow.

By partnering with SpotOn Productions, organizations can elevate their recruitment strategy with engaging and impactful video content. From conceptualization to execution, SpotOn Productions collaborates closely with clients to create compelling visual narratives that attract top talent and reinforce the organization’s status as an employer of choice.
