We’re not really suggesting that you feature in your own online video. The managing director as the lead is a model that doesn’t always work as many a pained ad agency exec would testify to…. no matter how much he or she harbors secret Hollywood dreams.
For many businesses, using video online can be a very real way to deepen the understanding that your customers have of your business. But there's a lot more to it that loading up the digicam and buying yourself a director's chair.
HotMedia's video production team have a wide range of experience in creating videos that work for the online environment. They understand that the screen is usually smaller, the complexities of streaming and optimizing output and that the user is in a more interactive frame of mind.
Here's a taste of what we can do:
