Tips For Writing Script for Your Video Production

Screenwriting Tips for Your Production

Before starting any video project, it’s important to write a detailed script. This is a no-brainer, and in some cases, a script can be one of the easiest steps in video production. However, a bad script will make the entire video production process a major headache. In times like these, ReelSEO has put together a list of screenwriting tips to get you through this crucial step. As Chicago videographers, we fully support the following tips for writing script.

1. KISS (Keep it Short and Simple)
While content trumps length, it’s critical to keep your script to a manageable length. Thirty to sixty seconds is ideal. Once you get above ninety seconds, you better have some pretty great content, or you’ll start losing viewers fast.

Creating a concise script depends on using short sentences and simple language. Always try to avoid industry jargon and make sure to have someone outside of your company review the script before signing off.
writing script2. Set the Tone
Video is powerful precisely because you have the ability to choose a tone for your company and connect with your customers in a way that text cannot.

The tone you choose to write in often depends on the intended audience. However, with any script, it’s safe to assume that your audience wants to watch something engaging, unique and useful. In that case, be personal. The viewer should be able to relate to what you’re talking about. In certain situations (most, in my opinion), a little humor can go a long way.
3. Start with an Elevator Pitch
There are exceptions, but most great marketing videos start with a clear and compelling elevator pitch in the first five seconds. An elevator pitch is your hook. It should quickly convey the core message behind your product or service. Crafting a great pitch can take a lot of time, but once you’ve nailed it, it can significantly help people remember who you are and what makes you unique
4. Tell a Story
Everyone loves a good story, so why should your video be any different? A story, in essence, is a progression with a beginning and an end. Along the way, it identifies a problem and presents a solution.

Start by identifying the main point. What is the problem your product or service solves? Make sure you present it in a way that your audience can easily identify with. Oftentimes, walking through a simple scenario or case example can help viewers connect.

Once you’ve painted a compelling picture of the problem, present your solution. What makes your product or service the ideal solution? Why should they choose you over the competition? Be clear and confident with your value proposition. Your solution should create a desire in the viewer to act, and act soon.
5. What’s in it for Me?
Throughout the script, never forget to be continually answering the key question every viewer will have, “what’s in it for me?” From start to finish, your video should be focused on your potential customer, what they want and how you can help them get it. Finally, end your script with a call to action – a next step the viewer can take to get started.

Writing script is hard work, but when you do it right, it will pay dividends. By using a personal tone, simple language, an interesting story and a valuable offer, you’re well on your way to creating a video that sells.

Tips for Managing Color Temperature in Online Video

Color Temperature: What it is and How to Manage it

Light sources, from the sun to lamps, release a color temperature in Kelvin. While our eyes can adjust to the light, our cameras remain sensitive to it. Ever notice a video or photograph of something indoors with an unusual blue hue? Or something outdoors that looked oddly orange? This usually means the camera was not set to the appropriate color temperature for the environment.  Understanding these subtle technical details will set the groundwork for a successful video. And knowing how to adjust these color temperature levels in post-production (and during production with the right camera settings) is the topic of this Reel Rebel video. Read more
