Virtual Property Video

Being in lockdown doesn’t mean your house sale has to stall. Many estate agencies are now offering virtual house tours as a great way to showcase your home to prospective buyers or even renters.

With high-quality cameras available on most modern smartphones, shooting your own home video to walk through the property and showcase the rooms and exterior. Here are some tips on staging your home for a professional-looking house tour to show your home off at its best.

  1. Make sure your phone’s video is set at the best quality it can record, your footage needs to reflect the quality of your home.
  2. Remove clutter – floors and surfaces should be clutter-free and if your showing cupboards make sure they are organized.
  3. Good lighting is one of the most important elements of any video, pull back the curtains, and open the blinds as far as they can go. Make the video during the day when the light is bright and airy. For dark rooms turn on all the lights and lamps.
  4. Leave the doors open as this helps add more light into rooms and it helps show the plan of the house too.
  5. Make the beds! Add flowers and make sure it looks inviting.
  6. Don’t forget outside, a view from the front and back, balcony or gardens.
  7. Don’t go too fast when walking from room to room.
  8. Make sure to use the best area of the room to scan the room and show off any particular features.
  9. Don’t forget period features, stunning fireplaces, media systems, and electric features.

Why produce a virtual school tour?

For families unable to visit your school

A school virtual tour allows prospective students and their families to immerse themselves within the school environment if they are unable to make the journey from further afield. Whilst a prospectus design can help convey your school’s values and ethos, a virtual tour takes that experience one step further. A video walk-through virtual tour gives families a chance to virtually walk around the school’s campus and visit classrooms, libraries, and other key areas of the school that may be of particular interest to them. For families unable to make it to your campus, the additional exposure and heightened experience could be the difference in their final decision when compared with another school that is unable to provide this experience.

In case of a shutdown

The year of 2020 provided an unprecedented experience with the impact of COVID-19. For many schools this left them unable to fully showcase their facilities to prospective parents and students. A school virtual tour provides intimate access to the school’s building and perfectly illustrates the school and its surroundings.

Staff recruitment opportunities

As well as benefiting students and families, a virtual tour is a fantastic opportunity to advertise your school to new members of staff. Before applying for a role many people research the school or organization to which they are applying. A virtual tour provides an enriched experience for prospective candidates to learn more about your school’s brand and get a feel for the facilities and school environment.

Corporate Culture Video

Creating a Corporate Culture Video

The War for Talent goes back to the late-nineties internet boom and has existed ever since – aside from the few years following the GFC and busting of the original internet bubble. It remains strong, especially in those key hard-to-fill tech roles.

Companies have always needed to differentiate themselves from the competition through employer branding, and a large part of that brand is the company culture. A visualisation of the values, goals, aspirations – and the 4pm knock off time on Friday. Why should poeple join you, why do they say, and what’s great about working there?

Creating a corporate culture video is a great tool for recruitment, but also for retention of talent already in the organisation in demonstrating their personal and team impact on the organisation’s strategic and fiscal development.

The best people want to work for the best team. Few players in the world would turn down the opportunity to be a part of the current Liverpool football team. Can your organisation demonstrate the constant drive for improvement, the teamwork to get there – and a manager to whom everyone looks up to and all are pulling for.

The culture video will take inspirational stories from team members, detailing their efforts and contributions. In a larger organisation without large-scale cross pollination, it’s great for personnel to get the opportunity to tell their story and achieve some form of appreciation and recognition from colleagues outside of their immediate bubble.

This form of individual and team publicity serves to inspire others within the company thus driving further productivity.

Interviewing style and expertise is key. We need to draw the pertinent elements and move between the strands to pull together a cohesive but interesting and engaging video focusing on the individual elements which made the difference. What choices were made, the focus on success and the additional effort that achieved it.

We are especially keen to avoid clichés in any productions and avoid quoting (or misquoting on most occasions) of famous idioms. Be real, get to the point and extract the meaningful elements.

You’ll need to conclude the message, emphasising the cultural directive and a decision as to whether you want different endings – one for internal retention, and one for external recruitment – or if the word can be combined in a single, resounding synopsis.

Filming Your Event

 

You’re planning your next event.

You’ve got the basics down, know the goal, the guest list is sorted and the message is out there with your #hashtag trending. The venue – well, there are still few you’re considering, and the budget is coming along well. You can visualise how the whole package is going to come together and your awesome team are all on board.

“You know what’d be great – if we had a video of last year’s event that we could push out on our social media to promote this year’s event.”

The power of video is undeniable, and this is the chance to promote your events for the future. To document the power of your hard work with a post-event highlight reel, and show everyone your event planning expertise.

Think about live streaming the feed through your social media channels increasing visibility and sharing the event to those who couldn’t make it.

You’ve invested a lot of time and money in the other elements; capturing the event on video is a key investment that should be on every planning checklist.

Creative Business Portraits

Creative Business Portraits

I love taking my portable studio into an office on shoot day! The staff all get excited about being in front of the camera! My set up for Business and headshot photography here in Hertfordshire is a simple one, either natural lighting making the best use of gorgeous window light or I can bring a portable studio where I can set up in a corner of the office and create studio style images for the staff and the client.

Here you can see examples of natural lighting and a mini studio set up with a coloured background.

Its always a challenge when clients ask for something different, Yugen wanted a dark atmosphere to their images to showcase their food. We used a steel worktop and lots of black cards to create a moody image to highlight the food.
