If you’re one of the fortunate CMO’s or VP’s of Marketing that have their own in house creative department you’ll already have a DAM (Digital Assent Management) archive setup. Right?

Either way here’s the hot video production tip. Produce a video campaign with existing assets. It’s faster, costs less, and can help you keep that visual media content constantly flowing. Mix creative writing with excellent editing and a few motion graphics. And boom. You have a new video marketing campaign.

In January of this year I produced a video campaign for the Jewish Community of San Francsico. Using this video production tip. The video campaign is for 2016 summer camp enrollment. The video production scripts were written in house using JCCSF’s excellent market data and survey results. The video messages use real customer inputs from previous years. Voice over was recorded with real camp counselors. All the footage and animated photos are from the company archive.

Being a commercial video producer and director photography I always want to create new amazing footage for businesses that call. I understand that not every campaign needs exquisite new footage dripping with luscious light and dynamic camera moves. My goal, as your visual brand connector, is to maximize your ideas with my experience in creative services. Hopefully this hot video production tip can extend your constant content flow a little bit longer.

Have a look at how I used this video production process to produce Swinerton Builders 125th anniversary and recruiting video.
