Typically we create the following types of videos: presentations, interviews, discussions, demonstrations, animations or a blend of two of more types. Most types of video can be recorded in our studios or on location, depending on the resources available and the effects you wish to achieve. As part of the production process we help you develop the best approach based on your objectives.
Recording that combines video and computer in a controlled environment. Presenters speak directly to the camera. Scheduled staff members combine live camera with sources such as a computer with PowerPoint, an iPad or a document camera into a final composited product.
Presentation capture has some advantages over face-to-face lectures: students can rewind and review, videos can be captioned, and slides and other visual aids can be easier to see and review.
Single or multi-cam recording in a controlled environment. An expert can answer questions posed by an interviewer who is either on camera or off.
Single or multi-cam recording in a controlled environment. Guests carry out discussion in front of camera(s). Scheduled staff members combine live camera(s) with external sources such as a computer with Power Point, an iPad or a document camera into a final composited product.
Recorded discussions are an opportunity to hear from guest experts in a less formal, more conversational style. On the other hand, discussions can become quite lengthy and more difficult to condense in post-production. When it comes to online video, shorter is better.
Single or multi-camera recording in a natural environment.
Video is an excellent medium for recording demonstrations because presenters can guide students through a process and show how they change over time. A video in some cases can be even more effective than a live demonstration. Recorded demonstrations can free up class time for other activities, can be used for many years and in some cases for more than one course.
Animations can illustrate processes, simulate change over time and be used to selectively highlight details and relationships between things. No recording is necessary, but animation requires a learned skill set.
