How To Think Beyond The Promotional Video (Part 2)

Episode 42 – How To Think Beyond The Promotional Video with filmmaker James Mellor.

I am joined again by filmmaker and video producer James Mellor as we continue this truly inspiring and uplifting conversation about the power of moving images and sound to engage an audience.

In part 2, we look at coming up with creative ideas and the mindset of a visual storyteller:

In this episode James Mellor and I talk about:

  • recent projects that have challenged his clients and helped them achieve greater results
  • being resourceful and inventive to capture exciting video clips and tell a better story
  • the importance of thinking about the audience and being clear about the goals of the video
  • planning in advance for repurposing the video into different formats and different lengths
  • whether businesses should consider producing documentaries, humorous content and ‘borrow’ ideas from the small and big screens
  • his process to create a video for his corporate clients and how he uses his knowledge from feature filmmaking
  • how he makes his customers feel more confident being in front of the camera and the importance of being not too scripted
  • his six-part documentary ‘The Inflight Food Trip’ and how he produced the series and got a distribution deal with Amazon Prime Videos (fascinating!)
  • getting more value from your existing content and exploring options such as subtitling and new animations or music tracks
  • and so much more!
