Let Rhubarb Fool give some simple tips to help any video marketing project

Step 4: Think of Ray Mears. Leave things how you found them.

Having completed the video shoot, with all and sundry happy with the quality of footage that has been captured, it’s time to tear down the set and get home for supper.

But please remember. You can’t afford any rushes of blood or demob happiness. You have to take as much care dismantling the set as you took to set it up. Can you imagine how you’d feel, as the satisfaction of completing a good job diminished with the smash of an expensive lens or a beautiful decorative vase that your client had provided to add style.

Dismantle all equipment (be that yours or your client’s) with care and consideration.  And you’ll surely remember that checklist from Step 1? It’s just as important at the end of a job as it is as the beginning of a job. Make sure you check off each item of equipment that you have taken to the shoot. You know what we were saying about commercial credibility. It’s not something that would be helped by a client phoning you up to inform you that you’ve left a lighting rig behind.

In our experience highly effective artistic skills are completely compatible with highly effective organisational skills.

Step 5: No footage is bad footage

The moment you return to your office or studio, make sure you immediately import recently shot footage onto your computer or hard drive. Swiftly completing this task will minimise the risks associated with shooting onto that exact memory card at a later point.

It may also be that your ability to edit the footage that you’ve shot will be greatest immediately after you’ve shot it.  Even a coarse edit at this point can help you to capture that feeling you were trying to convey.

And a rough edit can kick off the process of feedback that’s going to be so important to you meeting your commercial objective. Once you’ve received all the feedback you want (or you can cope with) you can start to finalise the editing process and implement the video into a focused marketing strategy!

Please remember as well. You could tattoo this step by step guide  onto the palms of your hands. But mistakes will be made. What Rhubarb Fool has tried to help you to do here is avoid the avoidable ones.

Step 2: Know what works for you and make sure that it’s working for you.

lighting and angles are vital elements of video production that you’ll have to be completely on top of. But these are three different elements that are underpinned by the same process.

The camera operator will need to decide on the angle and position. This will largely be determined by the lighting, but would also need to take into account any other distraction that could occur in the background of the shot.

When the shot is backlit, the viewer will not be able to see the face of the interviewee or the facade of any items that might be being shown. If anything, it’s always a good idea to start off by shooting the camera from the opposite direction of the window (or light source) to use the light to enhance and illuminate the image.

Of course, the angle at which a video is shot will be defined by the person behind the camera. In the piece of work we undertook for leading law firm Freshfields, we were well served by setting the camera just off to the side. This offered the interview feel so important to the legacy objective that the client was seeking. It wasn’t rocket science we were just able to give the sense of the contributor speaking to someone slightly off camera.

When we undertake videos marketing that is targeting products or services, we like will position the camera head-on. This allows the contributor to speak directly to the viewer. It establishes trust and intimacy. But use this technique with caution. A subject looking directly at the camera can add an “infomercial” or “television commercial” quality to your interview. This can make it appear trite, superficial and impersonal. It can really detract from quality content.

Step 3: When you think you’re ready to start shooting, put your finger to the wind and think.

That equipment that looks ready to roll, perfectly positioned and accurately angled. Surely it’s time to roll! But just hold your horses for a moment.

Before pressing the record button, there are a couple of things to check on your camera. A stitch in time WILL save nine. One of two test runs with the interviewee speaking direct to microphone will allow you to make sure that all of your volume levels are where they need to be. And don’t forget the lighting. Determining the correct white balance level in the camera settings, can make all the difference between a high quality and a low quality picture shot.

Last but not least, don’t forget to check the camera focus. It’s probably the most important part of the set-up to check before you shoot. If the camera is even a touch out of focus for some or all of the video shoot, those clips will only be suitable for littering the cutting room floor. It’s a complete waste of time and the nature of video is that it won’t just be your time that will have been wasted. It will have been your client’s time. It’s such things that can turn a potentially profitable commission into a liability.

some simple tips to help any video marketing project

Ownership of a camera that’s capable of shooting HD video bestows no exclusivity on anyone nowadays. Be it a smartphone, a compact digital camera, or a DSLR; the tools of the video-marketer have become increasingly ubiquitous.

But the elusive question remains just as intangible. How can you shoot video footage of a quality that that can be presented to and enjoyed by an commercial audience?

At Rhubarb Fool Andy is our go-to guy for video marketing. Catching him between shoots, we eventually got him to sit down long enough to give us 5 essential tips for the video marketer.

First things first. Let’s not forget the old adage about the bad workers’ willingness to blame their tools for their own deficiencies. At Rhubarb Fool, we approach this from a slightly different angle. That being that the good worker will make sure they have the best tools to ensure they produce the best possible work.

So if you’re looking to compile a video of commercial quality , we’d recommend that you invest in a quality SLR and a video marketing studio capable of editing HD video. If you’re building a video marketing studio from scratch, then you could do a lot worse than to check out Vidyard’s Ultimate Video Marketing Studio checklist.

So now you’ve bit the bullet and shelled out for the equipment, the hard work begins. Let Rhubarb Fool offer you a little guidance that will help you to deliver quality material for yourself and your clients. This isn’t an extensive list of dos and dont’s. Just five broad principles that hard won experience has taught us at Rhubarb Fool. If you want to succeed in marketing through video, then you’ll first have to succeed in delighting through video.

Step 1: Be prepared.

There can’t be many worse experiences than heading out for a shoot, showing up at the location, unloading your gear and then realising that a vital piece of your equipment is missing. The best way of avoiding such toe curling annoyance is to make sure your equipment is always ready to go.

Store all of your video equipment in the same location in the same positions. That way if you’re rushing out of the door on a shoot, anything that you might have left behind will be clearly visible.

Failing this, how about a checklist? Nothing too fancy. Just use a phone, or a pen and paper has been known to work. You may think that we’re fretting like old geese,

but checking off each piece of equipment before heading out for the day will make sure nothing is left behind.

Though we can’t actually speak from experience, the thought of re-scheduling with a client because of some simple and avoidable mistake sends shivers down our collective spines. It would not only cost money. It would undermine professional credibility and there could be no worse feeling than that.

Rhubarb Fool Marketing design branding

Rhubarb Fool and multi-media marketing methods

How Rhubarb Fool can practice the perfect multi-media marketing strategy to promote your brand.

A beautiful billboard advertising campaign, focused on sites of premium exposure, will turn heads and it could create a stir. But what happens when the wind and rain works its magic. The beautiful colours will fade and that high quality paper will tear.

At Rhubarb Fool we believe that nothing will serve you as well as an integrated marketing plan that has breadth, charisma and durability.

But, as is the case in all of our commercial activities, that’s easy to say, but difficult to do.

At Rhubarb Fool the task we set ourselves is to identify the best possible combination of market approaches to take with your brand.

Research undertaken by Pointroll (in conjunction with Kelton Research) generated some interesting pointers.

In surveys of marketing professionals more than half of these professionals suggested they would use 5+ marketing methods in a single campaign.

Of these, 15% said they used between 7 – 9 different methods and 13% claimed to routinely be hitting double figures in the methods they would use.

This suggested to us that people in the know seemed more inclined to approach the market place with a wide net, rather than a deep net.

But let’s be clear. Although Rhubarb Fool is able to pick from an extensive stable of marketing methods, there’s no chance of us being able to spend five minutes looking at your business and then tell you what methods are going to work best for you.

Unlike Google, we don’t have fantastic algorithms at our command. We still have to suck it and see sometimes.

Think about cooking your favourite dish. Imagine the blend of herbs and spices; or cooking times and methods that deliver those taste sensations that you seek.

Sometimes you’ll be best served by closing the recipe book and relying instead on Instinct and experience. You need to personalise the recipe. It’s just the same process in identifying the best methods of marketing for a company.

When we approach (for example) marketing methods for a digital campaign, we would be thinking along the lines of content, social, apps, tablets, website development and search engines. Any number of these can be used in a digital marketing campaign, but you wouldn’t necessarily need to use all of them.

The success of a marketing campaign will be defined by its ability to make as many people as possible (in your target market) absorb your brand’s message. We don’t think you’ll do this by a billboard on the North Circular, unless awareness was measured by the number of hours that London’s ill-favoured motorists spent staring at it. But we’re In the digital world.

At Rhubarb Fool we want to diffuse your brand’s message across a bespoke selection of online streams . We want these streams to support and reinforce each other, and thereby provide a solution to brand communication that is integrated and holistic.

Allow me a cliche. At Rhubarb Fool “we’re always thinking outside the box”.The digital world is constantly evolving and by way of this process it’s always generating new marketing opportunities. Let’s look at Vine.

It’s a social app, which allows users to capture and share a constantly looping 6-second video, for example. The potential that this had for marketers looking to create branded

content is huge. It’s just one of the new marketing methods that Rhubarb Fool is harnessing.

To better illustrate out approach, let’s imagine we’re working with a young travel company, which had asked us to increase its profile. We might think about running a competition to engage potential punters. But, for that competition to work, we’d need people to know about it.

And how would we do this?

We might write a witty article or produce a comical video to surround our competition? But that’s not all. From there, we’d be using all of our skills to get our great content published on a variety of high profile and targeted sites. These would encourage and incentivise our audience to visit a website that we would have had specifically made for the competition.

Then, we’d be working to inspire people to share and engage with the brand via the hashtag or Twitter handle we would have created for the occasion. And beyond that we’d look at have a Facebook page underpinning the whole process.

So I hope you can see how Rhubarb Fool would use content, website development, social sharing and all-round exposure to engage your target market. Once we’ve done that your target market will yield customer upon customer.

We want to give your audience more than a simple banner ad. We want to give it a whole brand experience that it can interact with.
