WHY STORYTELLING OUTPERFORMS OTHER VIDEO COMMS

Storytelling
With so many companies now embracing video to promote their organisations, products or services, the challenge everyone is now faced with is 'how to create the ideal corporate film' that will communicate effectively, have an impact and be more memorable than its rivals.

What so many get wrong
Here's the trap that many client organisations, inexperienced videographers and wannabe producers fall into.

Think about those videos where you were shown a montage of moving images about someone else's business or event; maybe a talking head or carefully contrived testimonials that just spouted off about 'something' that you now can't even remember. Did any of them truly inspire you? Did any of them make you sit up and say to yourself, "Waw, that's the one for me!" Probably not.

The chances are you probably can't even remember any of them individually, because they were boring and all much the same. So if you have exactly the same, why would yours be judged differently?

What so few get right
Now think about those stories you were told when growing up. Still remember them? Yes, and that's because we're hardwired to learn from storytelling. Even the parables were first passed down by storytellers, centuries before the bible was written. Fast forward now to 21st century. Technology has evolved but the human race is still hardwired in the same way.

There is always a story somewhere in what you want to communicate. The skill comes in identifying what that story is, how it relates and should be conveyed to your target audience in a marketing sense. This will not happen by chance. It's best achieved where the story line has been professionally developed during the preproduction process.

Neither should it be filmed in a haphazard way. Whatever the film is for, whether, a company promotion, product advert or even an event, professional corporate filmmakers will never turn up on a job without a detailed storyboard, script, shot list and production treatment.

Beginning, middle and end
When produced correctly and steered by key communication objectives, viewers will connect emotionally to judge why they should watch the film; storytelling helps them identify what the product service or event has to offer; why it's appropriate for them and know what to do.
