How Videos and Languages Connect?

October 26th, 2018

We have been working with the Languages Connect team for the last few months to produce a great series of videos on the importance of languages. Created by frequent collaborator The Post Primary Languages Initiative,  the Languages Connect project is a great awareness enterprise. They explore how learning a language can transform lives. We created a series of short documentaries featuring many fascinating professionals. They came from all different careers (such as Hugh Cooney, Sean Carolan, Megan McEvoy, Fiona Uyema and Ian McKinley), including dancers, engineers, lecturers and entrepreneurs who all have one skill in common, the ability to speak more than one language and do so in their line of work. These videos will be rolled out in secondary schools across Ireland to encourage young people to choose a language when planning their career path. 

We got to see first hand how languages have taken people from their school desks to the rugby pitch, the lecture halls to the European Parliament and the relationships they’ve built along the way.

We’ve really enjoyed working with such a broad spectrum of contributors on this project and it’s great to see the finished product up on www.languagesconnect.ie now!

Increase Your Ranking Using a Great Video

May 4th, 2018

Videos can be a really powerful form of content, it can also make a significant contribution to a company’s search engine ranking. 64% of all internet traffic is made up of videos alone so featuring a video on your website can attract more views than a text heavy site. They don’t have to be movies with actors or special effects. Videos communicate so much visually that sometimes they don’t even need a script!

Building links and generating social shares is one of the best things you can do to improve your Google ranking. Viewers are more likely to engage with videos than they would with static content so tweets, retweets, pins, likes and shares, across the various social media platforms, help massively with boosting the site’s SEO. The more engagement your video creates, the higher up your page will rank.

When a potential customer finds your site, you have to impress them in the first few seconds or you’ll lose them. Get them engaged with what you’re selling through an eye-catching video. At Videoworks, we’re happy to chat to you about what video would work best for your business. Let us help boost your page by creating a it for you!

How can a training video improve business?

February 27th, 2018

Why does your organisation needs a training video?
Here at VideoWorks, we’re big fans of helping to improve businesses through the use of video! One of the most recents trends we’ve seen is the successful incorporation of training videos into the workplace.

Training videos are a great way tor businesses to scale their professional development strategy. Creating video can be a great way to share your message, through visual engagement. Your employees are therefore more likely to remember and respond to the training. The videos can also be accessed by employees whenever they need. They can also re-watch and take the time to fully understand the instructions. Another great thing about video is its ability to illustrate multiple types of training examples that can be difficult to replicate otherwise.

The use of instructional videos is also a much cheaper alternative to hiring a trainer each time. It greatly reduces training costs for the business as producing a video would only require a once-off payment. If you’d like to see how much it would cost to produce a training video for your business then get in touch with us here for a quote!

VideoWorks is a Dublin based video production company that provides high-quality video production to some of Ireland’s leading companies and educational organisations! In our experience, companies both big and small have used video to effectively engage their employees and make concepts stick. These days they don’t have to be very formal affairs, sometimes applying a creative approach to an instructional video can prove to be a perfect format to get your message across.  However a common mistake of ineffective training videos: Failing to find an adequate balance between entertainment, motivation and actual teaching. We would encourage you to contact us now to discuss the best strategy for creating the perfect video to communicate to your employees!

How much does a video cost?

November 27th, 2017

The answer? Well, it depends, there are a number of variables that can affect the cost of producing a short video. The easiest way to work it out is to talk through your budget with a production company. Go through your idea, your location and what you have envisioned as the final product. A reference video is a great place to start when looking for a rough guideline. These are just some of the factors that come into play:

At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. A good crew are usually worth splashing the cash on. Most corporate and educational videos only need a small crew consisting of a cameraman/director and a sound man.

Location/ Production Time
Can the shoot be completed in a day or will it take longer? Will the crew have to travel? Are there expenses associated with the location? All these things need to be considered when choosing where to shoot in order to keep the costs down.

Even the quickest video can required a lot of equipment. Most videos will need the use of at least one camera, lighting and sound equipment. Most cameramen worth their salt will provide all this on the day.

A short 2-3 minute video can take up to 3 days to edit and ensure a clean cut finished product that is interesting and eye catching. Some videos many also required graphics, for example; subtitles or a company logo.

Length of Video
The duration of the finished video is one of the major factors that can affect the cost of producing a video. It will determine the length of the shoot as well as the length of the edit. The shorter the video, the quicker it’s made – the cheaper it will be to make!
