Making Corporate Video Shouldn’t Scare the S&%! Out of You
How corporate video content creation has changed over the years.
Does even saying the term “corporate video” send a shiver down your spine?
Featuring your best and brightest on camera to pump up your associates or sell your positive points should be a GOOD thing, right? Yeah, except when it didn’t.
For most, corporate video content evokes some bad memories.
Let’s go back to the ancient decades of the 80’s and 90’s.
Cue Wayne and Garth wiping the screen with their “transition” fingers DOO-DLE DOOT, DOO-DLE DOOT, DOO-DLE DOOT…
See, back then when companies wanted to show off their people and products they hired out corporate video companies to throw some new paint on their brand.
These production companies had access to the latest technology (and priced themselves ridiculously low) but their relative skill was still… developing. Plus, they were making content that only a FEW people would see. This was never meant to be consumed by the general public.
As a result, you got some truly harrowing work out of them:
- Terrifyingly bad dialogue
- Upsetting cuts and transitions
- Segments that went nowhere
- Stiff testimonials
- Overbearing pitchmen
- Bad graphics and text
- RAPPING CEO’S
Brrrrrr. Let’s move on to the early 2000’s, where boy bands were still topping the charts and we had successfully survived the Y2K virus!
Better and cheaper video equipment started making the rounds and made it easier for folks to produce relatively high-quality content.
But still, the storytelling was stiff, uninspired, and cheesy. It’s not their fault! Those same regional production companies were still using the template they had developed back in the 80’s, and never quite progressed.
But you don’t have to be scared anymore. Thanks to YouTube, we have ALL learned from history and each other and can embrace the delicious bad-ness (rad-ness?) of it all.
