With technology so pervasive in the modern world, it seems important to stop and consider the possibilities for using it in your proposal. One of the most common elements of life today is film- and whether on silver screens or iphones, proposal videos are on the rise. If you’re planning to use a video of some sort in your proposal, there are a few things that have to be considered carefully before you begin.
What sort of proposal video are you planning? A cartoon? A silent film? A flashback sequence? A parody of your favorite movie or video game? A documentary? The style you choose will dictate the rest of your choices.
Finding the right person to help you put the video together is vital, unless you’re a cinematographer, director and editor. Rather than try to wing it all yourself, ensure that the final video is as great as your idea, and get some help from experienced professionals. Put together a short summary, script or sketch of what you want your video to look like, and use that as a guide as you choose the people who will help you make it a reality. You can hire a proposal videographer right here!
How will you present the video? The possibilities are limitless, which means that you have to choose carefully. If you plan to propose in a movie theater, than it’s fairly obvious that you will show the video on the big screen. However, if you’re planning to propose in a less obvious setting, how will you make sure she gets to see- and appreciate- your video? Options include calling her over to the computer to watch a ‘random Youtube video’, hijacking the TVs in a public place, projecting the video on the side of a building, or practically anything else that you can think of. Choose wisely, because the way you present the video will set the mood for the entire proposal.
As you can see, there are a lot of variables at play in a proposal video, from the original premise all the way to the viewing. An experienced Proposal Planner will be your biggest ally as you iron out all of the details; they’ll be able to coach you through the creative process, and they can make sure you work with trustworthy and reliable professionals to bring your dream video to life.
