YOUR STORY, THE ASTERY WAY
This is where we take a deep dive into your company and the brief. What are your business goals? Corporate video, like all content marketing, is only as powerful as the purpose behind it.
2. Define KPI's (Success)
What does success look like? What are the specific metrics other than just views or likes that will define your video's success?
A crucial step where we identify your target persona, how they behave, where they spend their time online and what's important to them. This will then inform the creative process and direction.
4. Concepts & Creative
Here we bring it all together and begin the video content journey. We utilise our understanding of your business, its goals and the video's audience to create engaging, goal-driven content.
Proper pre-production leads to maximised budgets that are on schedule and creatively flawless. We will diligently make all production preparations for filming to maximise output.
6. Filming & Animation
All the hard work of planning finally comes to fruition! We will execute our planning and either capture all the content we need or let the animators work their magic!
Where the magic happens - editing, sound design, colour grading and much more. We work closely with our clients and our review stages ensure we're hitting your creative and business objectives.
Having an amazing video that no one watches defeats the purpose, right? An activation strategy is vital and we're happy to be directly involved or simply provide advice. Rest assured your video will reach its target audience.
We're live! We can now loop back and reference the KPI's. Can anything be tweaked for greater results? Did the audience really resonate with something specific and can we expand on that with supporting video assets or social posts?
Astery has been experts in emotional storytelling since day one some 12 years ago. Our team of animators have made countless innovative and engaging videos for clients of all shapes and sizes worldwide. They are not only frankly wizards from a technical point of view, but some of the most creative people we’re ever met and are constantly striving for new ideas and tools to hone their craft.

TIPS & CONSIDERATIONS
Corporate video should (in our humble opinion) sit at the centre of your digital strategy. This means that planning is vital, asking those big questions like why? Why are you really making this video, and who for? Is it to tell the world who you are, or what you do, or even why you do it? Each answer will resonate with unique demographics and each demographic will want or expect certain things from your video.
Do you have a lot to say? Sometimes cramming everything into a 90-second video is simply ineffective, and leaves the audience confused and overwhelmed, or worse - unengaged and clicking away. This is an opportunity to think modular. Why not consider breaking the idea or message down into 8 videos, and making a series out of it. You can then drip feed the content as part of your Hero Hub Help strategy. These modular pieces can then be used for social media, internally or hosted on your website / YouTube. This means maximum engagement, exposure and bang for your buck!
lf you're on set and filming any type of corporate video, from a profile to testimonials - think social. Let's face it, it's not cheap to hire camera operators, actors, locations, camera's, sound etc. so when shooting your corporate video have planned additional content for 10, 20, 30 posts on social media. Film some things vertically, take a photo of us (everyone loves behind the scenes photos!). Bulk shooting in this digital age is a time saving, cost-saving and audience driving practise.
