So you’ve scheduled a video shoot with us….

….but maybe you’ve never done this before. You’ve never been in front of a camera, let alone read from a teleprompter. If you’ve never done it before, the whole experience can seem a little intimidating.

And what about the video crew? Will they be friendly and patient?

Go ahead and take a deep breath, because the Your Local Studio experience will calm your nerves, get you ready to make a video, and above all–have a blast doing it!

Before the camera rolls

Before you actually get in front of the camera, we’ll work with you on getting prepared. You can go over your script, ask any questions, and get some snacks and drinks. All of this is in a low-key, no-pressure setting.

It’s OK if you’ve never done this before! We’ll work with you until you feel like you’re ready.

Record your first take

Once you’re ready to go, we’ll record your first take, using the teleprompter. You’re welcome to bring any ideas or request any changes.

  • Is the font size too small on the teleprompter screen? We can fix that!
  • Need some advice on using gestures? We’ve got you covered!
  • Concerned about your delivery? No problem, we’ll coach you until you find the best tone and pace
  • Need a ham sandwich pronto? Sorry…you might be out of luck with that one.

You’ll be able to review your first take and make adjustments as needed for the next one.

The editing stage

If you prefer to stick around for editing and provide direction for your final video, you’re in for a treat! You’ll get to work directly with one of our experienced editors as they bring your vision to life (they’re total wizards).

Already have an idea for your final video? Share it with your editor and make suggestions on things like:

  • Background color
  • Music selection
  • Specific text or icons
  • And anything else you can think of!

Being able to work one-on-one with someone allows you greater control over your vision for the video, and avoids the back-and-forth e-mails of feedback and requests. Plus, it’s just plain fun!

Once your video is finished, your video editor will upload it onto our video server, where you’ll be able to download it onto your computer or hard drive. You can also request additional channels for upload–like YouTube, or other social platforms (if the video is short enough).

Quick. Simple. Affordable.

These are the words we intentionally chose to describe our process and the experience we provide. We work to ensure that each video shoot is painless, smooth, efficient, and fun!
