Fight:

When you get clueless, fight remains the only option. This idea can work excellently for your aim of making a video amusing. It can be even more humorous to present the fight scene in slow motion. Preparing the script is not so difficult as well; you can simply talk about how people/ two people are fighting among each other and at the same time the features should be conveyed.

Animation:

This is a straightforward option for those like explainer videos. In fact, often the explainer videos are preferred to be prepared as the animated explanatory videos. Pick a funny animated character and scratch your brain a bit about how it could poke fun on your products. Certain good ideas will pop-up.

What If This Was That:

It’s such a compliant idea of producing fun! How would President Obama be looking with Michale Jackson hairstyle? What if Mark Henry does a cat walk wearing gown and high heels or would look in bikini? What if Donald Trump does a belly dance? Think something like this for your product; viewers can’t stop laughing.

Effusive:

This is a common trick used by the commercials. A deodorant spray hardly seduces a girl, or saving a lonely girl has anything to do with someone’s underwear. But, these explanations work, and people buy the product, simply because it’ amusing. Think about something that can be relevant to your product; it will work.

Gender Bender:

This is a great trick. Pick a person who is a very good actor with these tricks. If your product is more appropriate for a boy, imagine how it would have appeared with a girl. Dress a guy as a girl; it would rather be more humorous than a girl itself.

Candid Dance:

Is there anything more amusing than a candid untrained dance? Why don’t pick the same for your purpose? Prepare the content as someone is very happy with your product and is dancing in joy. The best part, you would have to put less stress on content this way, and no need to think about the choreography as well.

Internet:

An explainer video is generally of a couple of minutes unless a special case appears. One or two punch lines in the script for such a little length can be enough. Look for the humor/meme on the product of your video through Google; it will shower you with ideas. However, just revamp a bit or present it your way to be authentic.

Think What If The Product Was Not There:

Imagine a case when no public toilet is there, and someone feels the pressure. You don’t be that someone; let it be the funniest guy in your gang. How would he have reacted? Simply bone tickling; isn’t it? Similarly, just take you product and imagine how the same funny guy would miss it. You got what you want.

Let The Critics Go Gaga And You Shameless:

The best part of being shameless is that the criticisms appear like the funds. Be that shameless for a moment, ask your biggest foe and let him make the harshest fun on the product you are going to prepare the video for. You will shortlist some absolutely authentic punches.

Make It Flop:

Imagine how it would be if the concerned product you are preparing gets flopped. Imagine the technique you applied is presented in a flawed fashion. This will not only give you an idea of finding the humour quotient but will help in preparing the whole content itself.

Audio:

It’s matter of a couple of minutes at maximum. Nothing really to get surprised if someone feels it difficult to find the right humour content for such a stiff length. The best idea hence would be to incorporate funny sound clips. The laughing meme for example; talk about how the product’s absence you felt in a funny way and accompany the audio with it. It appears much more humorous this way.

Make It Intuitive:

Talk about the product in a humorous fashion with just anyone, no matter how bad you are about making humours. Definitely, the person in front will comment something about it, and maximum possibilities hold of it being a perfectly humorous content.

A Funny Man:

If you are a good actor or know someone who is good in acting, your job is half done. Pick any funny character like Charlie Chaplin, Mr. Bean, etc., and present the key specs of your product the way they would have presented it. It’s going to be absolutely funny once he script is prepared in a compliant fashion.

Animals:

This is another cool idea. Let a dog get dressed in formal suits, a cat in gown and both converse about product.

It might be a bit expensive to prepare such videos, but will be much amusing once upon being prepared in a flawless fashion.

Make It News:

Present it like your product is all hype and you are the news anchor talking about it. Now, you know how exaggerated and sensational fashion, with a lot of flashes the news these days are being prepared. Just pick the format, write an overwhelming script for your product and the job is done.

However, a bit special care has to be taken with the scripts while preparing these contents.

Finger Action:

This is a cool idea. Dressing the nails in various forms, like a shoe, a face, making the fingers dance are already the rocking ideas among the ad makers; nothing wrong to apply the same trick in your case as well. You have to be a little more creative, though.

Hand signs with background audio are also one of the cool ideas of making a video amusing. And, this is one of the simplest one to perform. All you need is preparing a few slides and a script to be talked in background.

The reason is simple; one explains about its products/services well, and the other doesn’t. Managing to drive a customer from the conventional offline shopping site to an online platform is not sufficient. The visitor will turn in to purchaser only when he/she spends the same amount of time as of the offline store. And, the videos can be absolutely compliant on his matter.

Take the case of home page explainer video again; it becomes relevant as it conveys perfectly about the aspects that the whole site is going to deliver. Similarly, the video of a shopping site should convince well about the usage to the customer/visitor.

Let The Video Encourage Him/ Her To Spend Some More Time:

It’s necessary that the product is not up to the mark if someone simply takes a dig at it and jumps over to another. He may not be interested in the time being as well. But, once the video has impressed him/her in the desired fashion, every possibility persists for him/her to check the other videos as well.

A blunder that most of the ordinary online shopping sites commit with their videos is that they just jump on the viewer to make him/her convince about buying the product straightaway, like a desperate sales person dying to meet his/her target. Remember, there are a very few those ascertain the product to buy from the concerned site. In ninety-nine percent of the cases, people feel the necessity of a product and look for the best solution of it over multiple sites. Here comes the role of the video.

And, the brand name has to be made stapled in between in a smarter fashion.

  • Things get wrong as people focus on creating the content that elaborates more about the features without being amusing. Here it’s like the above case where you are simply asking him to buy the product now.
  • In short, the features should be mentioned, not the whole explanation of it. In spite, these explanations should be presented in a creative fashion earlier throughout the video.

Tutorials:

The tutorial videos are also considered influential on an online shopping site. It’s quite obvious for a person to look for the usage ways post being convinced about the applicability of a product.

Especially, in the scenarios of growing demands for explanatory videos, the clarity of the objects in the video has to be absolutely translucent.
  • Keeping the Size in Mind:
    • The compilation of a video matters the most while preparing it for a specific device. One has to take care of all aspects, starting from the pixel counts to video lengths. These are all crucial in terms of user experience. Naturally, the text on a video will not appear the same way on a five inches device as it will on a thirty-five. If pixel counts, dimensions, etc. are too baffling for someone, the simplest recommendation would be to keep the text sizes at comparatively larger size.

Keeping the Right Length:

The video lengths need to be taken care properly. Everyone knows the exaggerated videos don’t work if it doesn’t fit well with the subject. Experts believe the videos of shorter lengths are comparatively more raging over the social media. Shorter videos have been found to be getting higher number of shares as well.

In short, the content has to be of up notch. For the same to accomplish, it is crucial to understand the purpose of the video to be prepared and moreover, to understand the targeted audience. Especially, one needs to be very sure about the length and contents while going for the animated explanatory videos, as these are visually much enriched. Care must be taken to ensure the real purpose of the video is not missed with an intention of making it catchy.

Making It Engaging:

Learning the art of splits can actually make the video more relevant for the audience. Even if it’s a tutorial video, making it too lengthy is never recommended. Rather, it’s a better idea to split it into parts or chapters to keep thing refreshing and engaging for the viewer.

Too lengthy videos create issues while buffering and downloading as well. Above all, as the intention is to prepare the video for mobiles watching videos for too long hours is not a convenient idea through which, the shorter videos are more favourable than the longer one.

Post an impressive introduction, the crucial details like the brand name, key features, important URLs, comparative analysis of how it is a greater option than the competitors, etc., needs to be conveyed in an intuitive fashion.

The point of saying intuitive means the video should not be simply popping the information; neither the focus should be exclusively on making it amusing. Maintaining the perfect combination of amusement ingredients and information makes the right flow maintained.

Very Important Splash Screen

The splash screen is the key component that needs to be taken special care of while preparing a video in contemporary times. Things are even trickier for splash screens in the desired fashion while being prepared for the smartphones. The splash screen is something that appears as the cover picture of a video prior being clicked.

Naturally, a catchy splash screen provokes the viewer more to put a click on it. Hence, it needs to be prepared in a professional fashion. The best recommendation is to snap your own splash screen instead of lifting it from any other source. On the simplest note, it should be prepared in a visually appealing way with bold and highlighting colour combinations.

Advantages of Going with a Video Production House:

Budget is definitely an issue. Preparing video for the mobiles of your own, taking care of the above points is definitely a smarter idea.

Humanizing Your Brand with Corporate Animation

With the growing competition, several companies are facing crisis in the modern era. The trust of the consumers on the bran is an imperative factor but with the growing competition people aren’t any more trusting on the brands. The corporations are seen as faceless profit makers by the consumers because of the sentimental tales of corruption that happens in the big industries.

Any message with the advertisements from the corporate brand is investigated and examined with extra effort. With such fact, the companies need a straightforward solution. Consumers trust the people more than the brands which reflect the fact for the brands to humanize the concept as well as the brand.

Several Misconceptions Have Been Developed By Entrepreneurs Related With Animated Videos

There are several misconceptions that real people are required for the videos to make it live action as the product is human based. Some even argue that with the intension of making an emotional video we need to avoid any sort of animation. The clients who are intending to avoid animation for the business videos employ such facts.

These facts may not be denied straight away, but this indeed is a misconception because they are unaware of what the animations can achieve. But the secret behind the achievement is it must be used properly and precisely for the corporate videos.

Why Opt For One-Go-Style?

It is recommended for the businesses not to opt for the one go style video formats as because there are so many factors that determine the video to be the right one for the corporate platform. The growing clients are sometimes misguided and are often defined in a wrong way what the animated videos intend to achieve and how affluently could it work out for maximum projects than the expectations.

There are few misconceptions about the animations and why those go inaccurate that are developed by the brands ping for humanizing the advertisements.

If Focused On Creating the Animated Videos Then It Can Be Sensible and Emotional

Animations are not able to appeal the mature audiences that are more experienced and older to accept the idea of cartoons, are the thought that is developed. This doesn’t mean that the animated videos are not capable enough to do the trick.

The sound design of the animated video if is bit focused on the matter of fact and the design is precisely done with mature look then the animated videos are able to catch the attention of the people and keep them really engaged on the seriously concerned topics.

The Misconceptions That Are Generally Developed

• Animated Contents Are Unable To Create Emotional Connection

The viewers certainly get connected with the facial expressions and the body language which create a real impression of strong emotional connections. The illustrated characters can even be able to express similar level of sadness, disdain, joy, etc. but it can be configured with manipulation of few key frames.

As these animated videos are made on computer that really doesn’t mean that the videos can’t be made sensible and emotional. The persons who have seen the animations are aware that even animations can create lots of emotions.

  • Animated Videos Can’t Be Made Funny
    • Many entrepreneurs consider that the animated videos are cute and elements of fun but deny the fact that they can be funny. This fact can’t be denied by any one aware about the video production that the humor sense comes from the script and concept of the storyboard. The style of the video isn’t imperative for generating laugh. The real feature is that any animated video with an attempt of making it humorous if fails is confirmed to be less disastrous than the live action videos with humorous elements when fails.
  • The Animated Video Must Feature the Gorgeousness of the Product
    • Including the product image is certainly imperative for any trade, if not this sounds to be very unappealing. The effort concentrated in making the product with its eye-catchy design, user interface, etc. needs to be featured in the real life indeed. The exciting lies with the animated videos that would keep the visitors engaged in your content. With aesthetic creations, the visitors or the viewers would focus on the content certainly.
  • The Audiences with Specific Demographic When Targeted
    • The companies having knowledge of the specific audiences that are to be targeted set their mind for one track that is live action videos. The fact of true self would certainly work out. For an example we can say, the teachers love their kids and featuring a teacher interacting with the kids would work feasibly. But after the teachers are back to their home they would prefer for some adult interaction. So such video may not be appealing and especially through the animated videos.
  • Not Able To Stand Out With Animation
    • The animated videos are a commonplace accessed by the businesses. There are many designers you can choose from who present new styles of illustration which gets developed over time. Let it be the character design, slick transitions, color palette or the use of lights creatively, all of these when precisely used a memorable video is created.

It is a fact that if the consumers lose interest in the message that is tried to deliver by the brand, then they would feel they are being ditched with aggressive tactics for sales. Here the fact rises that the brands must give priority to the organic conversations with the current and potential customers.

Why Animation?

The animation is considered as the product where visual designs meet with the technology which in result ties the brand beautifully in conveying the message. With the aesthetic and lifestyle of messaging in current advertising strategy, animation has created a distinctive and uniqueness with the market demand. The animation is considered to be limitless and can execute scenes that are difficult or rather we can say impossible to shoot. This certainly saves the demand of physical requirements of the shooting in reality.

Animated Videos Work Wonderfully For Campaigns of the Brands

The illustrations through the animations give emphasize on the sense of styles and glamorous which works wonderfully for the videos and campaigns of the brand. Compiled with savvy videos and animation the brands can use these videos for enhancing the image of the company that makes the company’s profile or personality come onto life.

Best Practices for Using Video in e-Learning

Interest for e-learning was always there and so the attempts of making these available in the best fashion over the web. Things are more encouraging about these in present times with the World Wide Web showing growing favour towards the videos. Needless is to mention that the videos are the most preferred ways for e-learning.

Anyway, it’s a fact at the same time that going with the same conventional ideas of preparing the e-learning videos may not be convenient in present scenario. It needs to be primed in a smart and prolific way, especially focussing for the e-learning.

For A Better Data Presentation:

Talking about the revamps needed for the e-learning videos, the aspects like improving the video quality, sound quality and so the right ways of data interpretation appear at the top. Techniques like the animated explanations, slide show presentations, pop-up images, etc., have emerged to be making the video e-learning process more enjoyable, in terms of information presentation. However, the best of the ways mentioned above can be dragged only when the video quality is of top-notch quality.

Set The Classroom Mood:

Most of the video e-learning attempts fail as these don’t set the right environments around. Preparing the e-learning shoot at a casual surrounding is obvious to deliver a not-so-impressive video quality.

The simplest and most effective idea would be to set an environment that is absolutely in accordance with a classroom. Discriminations like the classroom for an e-learning video as the virtual classroom and a conventional as the real classroom are responsible for neglected surroundings, and hence the poor picture quality, in case of the former.

An Interactive Video Is Preferable:

It would be evident upon taking a close observation on the e-learning videos that the videos with a casual surrounding are never much interactive. On the other hand, the contemporary demand for the e-learning video prioritizes on making the process absolutely intuitive. It is important to understand that all audiences of the e-learning videos are not necessarily the ones looking for the very rudiments. Be it the beginners as well, someone really interested in learning through your video is obvious to be coming cross with multiple questions. In short, the success of an e-learning video depends upon how well someone incorporates the interactive section.

There are many ways of making the process intuitive. Especially, the following ones can be absolutely significant.

  • Intuitiveness with the e-Learning can be live and through comments. The live interaction is no doubt the most expressive ways, but, it’s a fact at the same time that the concerned person needs to be absolutely confident and experienced about the topic. Starting from the connectivity, audio quality to the visuals, everything needs to be of optimum level.
  • However, these live interactions are applied only when both the conveyer and the audience are equally experienced. This is so as a comparatively beginner would love a video for e-learning to be visually appealing, presenting the points in a catchy fashion, through flow-charts, statistics, images, animations, even the live demos; rather than preparing it like a mere question answer session.
  • Again, a live interaction is not a very suitable option as well when it comes about explaining the step-by-step procedures. These steps become more enjoyable upon being presented in action modes.
  • One of the advantages of the back-end interaction or through the question answers is that it is effective in terms of avoiding the unwanted questions. The learner gets a chance to go through the videos well to understand the aspect, rather than putting the questions straightaway.
  • Most of the e-Learning fans are the professionals. Live demo is not really a suitable option to address these groups of people as it’s not possible at all to match their times and of yours. Instead, they would love to have these videos through subscriptions, over their mails. Hence, it is important to make sure there is a download option available.

Video Tutorials Those Exemplify Well:

Examples work with all. The rule is perfectly applied perfectly in case of the e-learning videos as well. Explaining the examples in many occasions have been found to be not so impressive.

These feel like pretty much the same thing as of a theoretical presentation. However, the examples with an e-Learning video are much appealing through the live presentations, pictorial presentations or the case studies.

E-Learning Videos for Promotional Activities:

Video tutorials for promotional activities are considered one of the biddable ways in present scenarios. Those like explaining the functionality of the features of a smartphone, talking about the usability of a new product, the steps to download or installation of a new app, etc. fall under the category.

There can’t be any better option than the e-Learning videos to deal with these aspects. The best part, one doesn’t need those extra visual effects or animations to explain about these things. All you need is a perfect place to shoot these videos and the flawless video and audio quality.

Best to Talk about the Tips:

E-learning videos have emerged as one of the favourite ways to talk about the social media tips and tweaks. Similarly, it has turned out to be one of the fulfilling options for the bloggers as well to talk about the blogging tips.

In fact, having a video on the home page of a site/blog is currently one of the most trending ways of optimization. Preparing these videos doesn’t involve hefty expenses apart from the flawless communication skills.

Objects Making the E-Learning Videos More Interesting:

An e-learning video would demand the right stuff for the right activities. Upon having these amenities ready, the e-learning videos can be prepared in a qualitatively enhanced fashion.

The best part of explaining things through the objects is that it makes things visually appealing as well as technically gettable. For example, if certain texts have to be displayed, rather than using the same white boards or papers as of the antique days, the slides or the animation ways could be an enchanting option to go with. From a learner’s point of view, these slides become more convenient to sort the important points out, rather than going through the long unwanted explanations.

E-Learning Videos in Series:

The e-learning videos with easy download option, and free subscriptions are preferred more than the others. Similarly, the e-learning videos those come in a series are more effective than the one-timer. These videos coming in a series have been enthusiastic for the learners. Those coming in parts come in an ideal length; hence, let the learner a better scope for understanding.

How to Play With The Quality And Connectivity:

One of the interesting facts about the e-learning videos is that the video makers often prefer these to be available over the free platforms, rather than the paid ones. It’s the huge audience what they want the most, and the free platforms, of course, can fulfil the same in the best way. On this context, the videos quality depends upon the connectivity and the purpose of the video.

For example, if the connectivity is slower, a little-compromised quality can also do the job for an e-learning video as these don’t include the minute objects those need to be viewed clearly. On the other hand, if the video has to be visually enhanced, the connectivity has to be taken care of.
