How to write a video marketing script?

There are 3 key elements. Hook, story, offer.

Hook: Your video needs to captivate attention straight away, a scroll stopper.
Hooks are in every great email, advertisement, landing page, sales page, or webinar.
Without a great hook your audience will pass you by. Introduce the problem or pain point here.

Story: The story endorses the hook. Good stories create a bond between the seller and the prospect. They build credibility and trust, pre-selling your offer.

Offer: The offer should solve their problem. The more irresistible your offer is, the less friction there will be. Know your audience, ensure your CTA call to action hits their pain point and offers them a solution.
Write like a 10-year-old and pretend you’re talking to an old friend, keep the tone conversational.

What does the video production process involve?

Every project is different, but it’s broken down into three stages.
Pre-production: This is when we work with you to learn all about your business what key problem you’re trying to solve and what style of video you need to solve that problem.
We define your target audience, key messaging. Then develop the treatment or creative idea, scripts, book talent, locations, secure props etc. Of course if it’s a simple point and shoot video this process is dramatically scaled down.
Production: This just means filming, we turn up with the camera, lighting and audio equipment and capture you, a presenter or actors in various scenes and locations.
Post-production: This can sometimes be the lions share of the work, depending on the style of video. During this stage we bring the footage into the editing suite and work our magic, selecting the best takes to assemble a video that clearly delivers your message to your audience and looks great. We then mastering the audio, colour grade and upload the draft to our review platform ready for you to give your feedback on any changes you would like.

How much input do you require from us?

The least amount possible, we know you’re busy doing what you’re good at.
We need you to fill in a creative brief document, this will give us answers to key questions that will give us a deeper understanding of your business and what you want to achieve. Whether it’s marketing videos or safety videos the same questions apply.
We then go through the pre-production process keeping you informed along the way as well as getting your sign off on the treatment, script, talent, location and budget.

You are welcome to come and hangout on set or location while we are filming but there is no need to if you don’t want to.

The only other thing required from you will be reviewing the final video for sign-off or changes.
As part of our process we do an in house review first so as to deliver what we hope will be the finished video for your review.

Total average minimum client time required would be around 2 hours.

How much input do you need from us when filming with Facebox?

What about graphics, logos and branding?

We typically always use motion graphics to create “pattern interrupt” underpin key messaging and add a little pace to the video. We will need a .png of your logo so we can animate a nice sting, or tail to your video along side the CTA Call to action.

Do you add graphics, logos and branding at Facebox?

Do you add voiceovers and music?

Absolutely, we can do in house voiceovers or hire a voice actor of your liking to voice your video, prices start at around $150. Music is defiantly including and we have access to the highest quality production music available today. The style of music we use will depend on the type of video we produce.

Do you do voiceovers?

Can you add subtitles to your videos?

Yes, captions are super important as 85% of viewers will watch mobile video with the sound off.
If we are producing landscape video for your website it’s not so important and can even detract from the story. If viewers are on your website they will typically take time to watch a video with the sound on.

Can you add subtitles to my video?

How can my video go viral?

We have a special button, we just push it and your video goes viral. I’m joking, there is no framework or strategy that can make you go viral otherwise everyone would be doing it. There are however certain key elements that really help. We launched a tourism video that we shot in a small town, population 3,280 as of writing this. We launched the video on youtube and created one organic Facebook post on the Friday night, by Sunday it had 30,000 views.

We put this down to three key elements.
We used locals in the video so they would tag and share it.
The narrative was trash talking the town but the imagery was showing how beautiful it was, so it was controversial. And you can definitely see that in the comment section.
It was great Kiwi satire if I do say so my self and people had a good laugh and then shared it.

In closing I would like to say if you do watch “Don’t go to Raglan” Do go, it’s one of my favourite places on earth.

How can I make my video go viral?

What if I want a shorter version of my video? 

We highly recommend it. Let’s say we shoot a 60 second video for you, this can often be cut down to a 30 and even 2-3 15 second clips giving you more content for more platforms gaining you more attention.
We often include this in your video strategy.

What should I wear?

Clothes, I find most shoots go better with clothes on and there are various reasons for this.

Seriously though stay away from hard blacks like this T-shirt, hey I’m teaching you, just listen. Hard whites and stripy intense patterns.

Blacks can get lost in the camera, whites can clip the camera and get lost as well, intense patterns create a weird effect in camera called moire.

Light or dark tones are fine, pastels are great, colour is awesome. Think about your own skin tone what do you look good in? If you prefer to wear blacks because you packn a bit of beef, choose dark tones. If you have sensual deep gorgeous blue eyes then accentuate them with that blouse you know makes you look smokn hot. Finally , be yourself, everyone else is taken.

What should I wear when filming?

Do I have to write my own script? Will you help?

We handle all script development in house. In saying that depending on the style of video we may ask you to write the first draft as you are the expert in your industry. From here we will polish it up and send it back to you for sign off.

Do I have to write my own script?

What if i’m too nervous to present?

Ahh, this is a great question. A lot of people are so you’re not alone. We have one of the best presentation coaches in the country working at Facebox. Trust me when I say by the time she has coached you through those butterflies you will not only present well you will have enjoyed the process and gained a new skill.

What if I'm too nervous to present in my video?

What if I can’t remember my script?

We use a teleprompter and will coach you do read your script naturally and at a good pace.
The audience, they won’t know you’re reading. Just like I’m reading now.

What if I can't remember my script?

How will my video perform online?

Great question. It depends on the type of video, the type of campaign and if it’s a paid campaign the skill of your paid marketing team and the budget you invest in it. So yes, lots of variable’s, this is all discussed with you after you fill in the creative brief document.

How will my video perform online?

How long can my video be?

15 seconds through to 3 minutes is a ball park answer.
We start with the end in mind so if your video is for TV and it’s a 30 second slot then obviously the video is 30 seconds long. If it’s a branding film it could be 3-8minutes long, a testimonial video could be 45 seconds.

Things to consider here are what platforms do your audience hang out on and what is the best length performing video for that platform.

How long can a video for social media be?

Do you create interactive content?

100%, in fact here is a link to the movie trailer for an interactive road safety campaign we did.
Choose your own ending or choose your own adventure campaigns are highly interactive because the audience is immersed in the story, deciding what to do next.

This type of creative involves third party services to host the software ensuring all the videos link and work together seamlessly. But once set up, clients can expect next level engagement. These are also great options for safety training videos as memory recall is a lot higher.

Do you create interactive content?

Do you keep copies of your projects?

Yes, everything is backed up for a minimum of 3 years to safeguard your investment with us.
Often clients request re edits, or remixes to refresh content we have already shot. This can be a very affordable way of creating new video assets.

Do you keep copies of your video projects?

Do you do Photography as well?

Absolutely, photography comes standard with all our video packages. You may have heard the saying content is king, we believe the more content you have the better. So you will receive multiple finished photographs from the film day, fresh headshots if required and candid stills for your social media content.
