Guidelines and Conditions for Video Making for Eduindex News

All Graphic Designers, Video Maker and Editors should Note

These guidelines will guide you in making good video. The guideline may not be comprehensive and users must you their wisdom in making good videos. The combination of visuals and audio allows a tremendous amount of information to be efficiently communicated in a short period of time.

Guidelines

Thoughtful Video

But most importantly, it makes us feel things. With a relatively small investment of thought and consideration, you can create simple video content, loaded with emotion, that will be compelling and motivating to your audience.

Connect With Your Audience

Show them what they want to see. Consider what information is most important to your viewer. For many non-profits, potential donors are really just looking to understand the impact of their donation. Show or tell them exactly where their money will be spent.

Impressive Video

You typically only have seconds to capture a viewer’s attention. This can be accomplished with a startling statistic, quote, or simply a powerful combination of video clips and music that draws in the audience’s attention. People also appreciate getting critical information fast, so a quick summary of what the video will cover can be just as effective.

Prioritize Audio

People are often willing to forgive shaky, blurry or low-quality visuals as long as they can hear what is being said clearly, but there is nothing that will cause viewers to drop off quicker than audio that is too quiet or is overpowered by background noise.

guidelines

Keep It Concise

We all have a busy schedule. Sadly, this has put us in a “time is of the essence” mentality and our attention span is continuously shrinking. The shorter the video, the more likely people will watch your entire video. But this also depends on where you intended to post your video and its purpose.

Call To Action!

Be sure to tell your viewers EXACTLY what you want them to do after they finish watching your video. Include links, instruction, and contact information wherever possible. Make sure that your call to action is simple, easy, and quick to execute.

Be Authentic

Without professional training in video production or acting, it is usually best to stick with what you know. Be sincere and direct and seek to inform rather than to persuade.

Editing and Titles

Some very simple editing can add tremendous production value and credibility to your video. Plan for this to take some time, but there are several free and simple programs that will allow beginners to add titles, logos, background music, credits, and also do some basic cuts and transitions.
