NEED ACTORS FOR YOUR VIDEO?
We understand that casting the right actor or professional talent dramatically improves your video.
When we produce your video content, our experienced producers and directors can also cast the ideal actors or professional talent for your video, whether we’re making a brand video, promotional or marketing video, corporate video or TVC for you.
We frequently get asked about whether or not our clients should hire an actor for their video. The short answer is, it depends.
Many people attempt to keep costs low when making a video, and decide to use members of their team to be the stars of their production. This can work well if you have people who can perform while at the same time look natural in front of the camera. In many cases, however, even someone who is charismatic, outgoing and a strong presenter in real life can suddenly clam up, get nervous, and make mistakes when they have a camera in front of their face. And understandably so – for anyone without extensive experience being filmed, it can be intimidating to have a camera pointed at them while being expected to act and sound natural, let alone remember all of their lines! And the more takes are required to get your video production right, the longer the video will end up taking to make – which can impact project budgets around hired equipment, studio time and crew costs. In many cases, the decision to hire an actor can save time and actually reduce the total project cost while providing a superior finished product.
Professional actors will know exactly what to expect when the cameras start rolling. Nerves are managed well, and you can be assured that you’ll get the perfect take quickly and easily.
If you do decide to professionally cast your video, selecting the right acting talent is crucial. The presence of a strong actor on screen can ultimately determine whether or not your audience really connects with your video and understands what your brand is all about.
An actor should be charismatic, have a real screen presence, and be able to make the audience feel something – whether it’s anger, sympathy or excitement. The right actor should also look the part, based on your target audience and what your video is about. A middle-aged actor may not be the best casting choice for a recruitment video targeted towards young university graduates, for example.
