There is nothing more important to a company than its brand. Today, many businesses have a video content presence on their websites, microsites, YouTube channels, and Facebook. MotionLife Media has worked with many Boston-area companies to expand their brand reach. WS Development, a retail development company, has requested dozens of customized video content for their regional shopping centers, holidays, and events. Foodies Urban Markets, a Boston-area gourmet grocery-store chain, contracted a series of informative videos profiling their recently opened South Boston market and its impact on the community.

An event video need no longer be dry and uninspired. There are now numerous ways to re-imagine a video record of significant events while adding an engaging branding component. For WS Development again, the multi-year construction project of their new headquarters and flagship shopping center in Chestnut Hill, The Street, required a series of informative construction updates for returning Facebook visitors. For GE Healthcare, a medical conference in New Orleans was an opportunity to showcase the talents of a 3D chalk artist outside the conference facility, and the final video encapsulates a process that spanned three days.

One of the most common yet challenging assignments is the ubiquitous talking head interview. Seeming deceptively simple, a well produced interview requires a relaxed, confident rapport with the subject. In addition, no interview in a CEO’s office should require two hours of lighting setup. Equipment needs to be portable and the process needs to be efficient: get in, put the subject at ease, make certain you’ve got all the angles you need for editorial, and get out. Cengage Learning, a leading provider in textbook publishing, sought out a producer/director to help them create a teaser video for their latest Spanish language series. Hogan Associates, a realty company servicing the Newport, RI area, introduced their very first video walk-through for a luxury property.

It’s almost impossible today to imagine a video without professional graphics and animation. What was once viewed as a separate component to video editing has now become a mandatory element. Jerome Stern works with the latest After Effects technology and software plug-ins to bring to life the title sequence, on-screen graphics, and animation sequences that you require. MotionLife Media collaborated with AFD Creative, a Boston-area digital media company, to create the event animations for the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center 2012 One Hundred Gala Event. Another collaboration, this time with StoneMedia Productions, led to a brand essence animation for SkillSoft Live Learning, announcing their latest online training services.

If you sell a product or a service, chances are you could benefit from a clean, straightforward training video. The key to a successful training video that will hold the viewer’s attention is to put as little distance as possible between the information and the audience. This can’t be accomplished without developing a strong relation between the content producer and the client, so that information can be relayed as simply and comprehensively as possible. Aeris Therapeutics, a medical device company, required a new approach for a detailed training video that would not only serve administering doctors and nurses, but pass FDA muster as well. Similarly, Diesel Direct, a nationwide on-site vehicle refueling service, had an immediate need for a series of procedural and safety videos to reach the company’s hundreds of drivers.
