The process of creating video content for television, home video, or the internet is known as video production. It’s similar to filmmaking, but instead of film stock, video is captured as analog signals on videotape, digitally on VHS, or as computer files on optical discs, hard drives, SSDs, magnetic tape, or memory cards.
Pre-production, production (sometimes known as principal photography), and post-production are the three steps of video production. Pre-production includes all components of the video production process that must be planned before filming begins. Scriptwriting, scheduling, logistics, and other administrative tasks are included. Production is the stage of video production that comprises recording the subject(s) of the video and capturing the video content (electronic moving images).
In either a live event setting (live production) or after an event has occurred, post-production is the process of carefully integrating various video clips through video editing into a finished product that tells a story or delivers a message (post-production).
The majority of video content is being captured using electronic media such as an SD card for consumer cameras or solid state storage and flash storage for professional cameras.
The MPEG container format (.mpeg,.mpg,.mp4), QuickTime (.mov), Audio Video Interleave (.avi), Windows Media Video (.wmv), and DivX are all common formats for video content transferred digitally on the internet (.avi, .divx).
Video creation comes in a variety of forms. Film and television production, television commercials, online commercials, corporate videos, product videos, customer testimonial videos, marketing videos, event videos, and wedding videos are among the most prevalent. Only content that is taken through all phases of production (Pre-production, Production, and Post-production) and generated with a specific audience in mind is referred to be “Video Production.” A person filming a concert or their child’s band recital with a smartphone or video camera just for the goal of documenting the memories would be considered “home movies,” not video production.
The size of the crew, not the location or type of content captured, determines the production scale. In most circumstances, the number of the crew will decide the quality of the project, not the type of information that may be collected. There are feature films shot with a crew of only two people and corporate videos shot with teams of ten or more.
Corporate videos can be produced and used for a variety of objectives, including corporate communication, training and education, videotaping conferences and conventions, promoting products and services, and sales. The “Corporate Overview Video,” which presents the company’s leadership team and puts a name and face to the individuals in command, is the most popular sort of corporate video. This movie is designed to express a company’s general mission statement as well as its key ideas and values. This film is frequently referred to as the “basis” of a company’s video content because it establishes the tone and communication style for all subsequent videos.
Corporate event videos are shot at conventions or trade exhibits and cover the entire multi-day event, including speakers, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities.
