Video: Choosing the right Aspect Ratio for Social

Film production has had to pivot these past couple of weeks. Our clients have come to us with a mindset and a willingness to take risks to turn disruption into advantage. More and more we’re seeing organizations do more with less to ensure they keep communicating.
 
Your social channels are a great platform to deliver videos and let your people or your customers know you’re still there. But one size does not fit all – not for social! Having the right aspect ratio is crucial to ensure your film is meeting social best practice, and giving your audience the best chance of taking in your message.
 
If you have a film you’d like us to resize or cutdown for social, a folder of photographs in the archive from that event you held 2 years ago, or video rushes from your latest company sales update, we can produce a film bespoke for your social channels. It’s quick, cost effective, and gives your organization a leg up, building brand trust.

“A message to our customers”…you’re probably getting a lot of emails to this effect. A video can deliver this same message with emotion, honesty, and connectivity.

When the time comes for your organization to deliver a message to your employees or customers you may know what you want to say, but how exactly do you say it?

  1. Targeting - consider who the relevant audience is and tailor your message to them.
  2. Put your audience first – put yourself in their shoes to determine how you can help them best, and alleviate any concerns.
  3. Keep it simple – short and to the point. Provide a clear action.
  4. Be honest - indicate your intent on how to minimize the impact and follow up when more information comes to light.
  5. Tell them why - if your audience can understand the reason for the decision, they will be more inclined to support you and react with empathy.
  6. Take a moment - say thank you, show your appreciation for their loyalty or hard work.

 

Casual Films has a fantastic team of creatives who can help craft your video message, and a wealth of tips for video production. Get in touch to bring your message to life.
