If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a million. Video outperforms other forms of content, and companies are taking notice. Brands are using video content to build lasting relationships with their clients and team, but they often need the guidance of an experienced video producer to help
them create impactful video content. Video producers "run the show" behind the scenes of videos, solving problems in pre-production, production, and post-production. Video producers work with clients to create commercials, documentaries, training videos, and more. They manage everything from casting and Audio/Visual to storyboards and final edits. If you have a creative mind and are a meticulous planner, video production may be a great option for you as a VBO!
Video producers oversee the creation of videos for advertisers, training programs, educators, and more. They are responsible for managing the entire production and employing creative problem-solving skills for issues that may arise throughout the project.
Video producers collaborate with their clients to determine the scope and needs of each job. They then develop an outline for the video and pitch the idea to their clients. Once an idea is approved, video producers select all of the camera, audio and lighting equipment for the project as well as the editing software and computer programs used. They also scout locations for the video and oversee everything from set design to wardrobe.
Video producers may work alone, but they usually oversee a team of editors, videographers, actors, stylists, and more. Video producers assign tasks to everyone involved, and they create schedules with deadlines to keep everyone on track. Video producers must be able to collaborate with and unify a team, and they also need to possess excellent organization skills.
