There are many different types of corporate films; brand films, explainer (how-to) videos, promotional content, internal comms, product launch and corporate events. These videos can be hosted on your website, social media or used for direct/online marketing or internally – the world is your oyster!

What is the role of a corporate videographer? Essentially, videographers are filmmakers. Depending on the purpose of the video, it is the job of the videographer to capture high quality and relevant video content relating to a specific company brief.
Videographers can work alone or as part of a small team depending on the type of corporate video being made. As filmmakers, they are responsible for operating their equipment, shooting the footage and using editing software to carry out necessary post-production needs afterwards.
Videographers will film corporate events such as conferences, lectures, award ceremonies, networking opportunities and interviews. Event videos can be used online or sent out to attendees who weren’t able to make the event in person. Extra footage can also be created to make a highlights video that will showcase the general buzz and atmosphere of the event as a keepsake or to event promote next years event! Take a look at a recent highlight we did while working as filmmakers for ForgeRock, a multinational identity and access management software company with offices in London and Bristol.
It is all about creating content that connects and speaks to your audience. The video has to be engaging. Post-production ties everything together; from the raw footage to the final edit. Post-production is equally as important as the initial filming process and is almost a separate skillset. Transitions, timing and music are other important elements added in post production; they set the tone of the whole video whilst representing your brand.
