A Step-by-Step Guide to Planning a Video Shoot

IMG_6956

While the preparation of an eCommerce video shoot shares some similarities with a photoshoot, there are a few differences.

Below we have outlined our step-by-step guide, designed to demystify the process of producing an eCommerce video shoot with us.

Step 1: Pre-Production – Dreaming It into Reality

Conceptualization: Your Video’s North Star

Every great video begins with a stellar idea. We kick off by inviting you to share your video concepts and references. This will steer us toward the right lighting, styling, and storyline.

Storyboarding: Sketching Your Story Frame by Frame

This is where the magic begins. Storyboarding is where we plot the the course of your video including shots, angles to styling. Think opening scenes and product showcases—all carefully laid out.

Set Preparation: Crafting Your Visual Wonderland

We roll up our sleeves to understand your concept fully—backdrops, props, and lighting included. Your ideas, our expertise. Together, we build the set that will bring your vision to life.

With your considerations, chosen video style, and sent storyboard in mind, you’re officially ready to roll!

Step 2: Production – Lights, Camera, Action

When the big day arrives, we’d love you in the studio for the ultimate creative experience.

We’re early birds armed with coffee and creativity. Setting up involves orchestrating lighting equipment, dialing in camera settings, and letting our stylist work their magic to create the perfect visual ambiance.

We hit record, capturing the essence of your brand. Sometimes it takes a few takes and angles to ensure we have a treasure trove of footage to weave into a compelling story during editing.

Step 3: Post-Production – Magic Behind the Curtain

As we transition into post-production, the magic continues.

Import Footage: Transitioning to the Editing Suite

We transfer our recorded magic to our editing suite, organizing and labeling clips for easy access.

Editing: Weaving Frames into a Masterpiece

Armed with video editing tools like Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci, we arrange footage, add transitions, text, music, and special effects—crafting a cohesive visual masterpiece.

Colour Grading: Painting Your Video Canvas

Adjusting colors and tones ensures each frame harmonizes with your product, enhancing the overall look and mood.

Audio Editing: Harmonizing Sound and Vision

We fine-tune the audio, adding music, sound effects, or voiceovers for that perfect harmony.

Export and Rendering: Presenting Your Masterpiece

Choosing the perfect settings for export, we render the final video, ready to captivate your audience.

Shooting an eCommerce video is an intricate process of planning, detail, and finesse in post-production. Through close collaboration, following these steps, and leveraging our skills at Front, Back, and Sides, we craft videos that not only showcase your products but also tell stories that captivate your audience and effectively convey your brand message.
