522 Productions tackles #in-person #production safely.

Wait. What?

Yes. You read that correctly. Over the past few months we’ve certainly been keeping busy. Sure enough that includes developing new ways to execute production. Because, after all, the show must go on.

We’re social distancing on set and gearing our crews with proper protection, all while maintaining that 522 quality you know & love.

Oh, and we’re producing videos virtually too.

Let us know if you have any questions about how to handle pandemic-induced production, or, even better - we’d love to hear how you all are executing it, as we’re always looking to improve.

Social media videos? Yep. You know they're important, but what makes a social media video really successful?

On this episode of #TheInsiderSeries, our Art Director, Ray Stanton, shared his thoughts on the most important elements to include in a successful social media video -

"The most important question to ask yourself before creating your social media videos is - how are you going to capture the viewer in the first few seconds? Attention spans on social media are very short, so starting the video off in a meaningful way that makes it very difficult to look (or swipe) away is so important.

The Florence Bascom biography video we made with the United States Geological Survey was a really fun opportunity to use a mix of archival photos and colorful design elements to tell an engaging story about a very important geologist... all in about 60 seconds!"

Check out the Flo' B biography video linked below - you'll see what he means.

We asked Chad Vossen , our co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, his thoughts on the power of video.
-
"It all started with the chemical element, Radon." He went back into the mid-90's when he created a video for school... well, actually, it was supposed to be a report on Radon (Rn). Not feeling ultra interested in the topic, he used his passion for video to describe the element and somehow was able to incorporate Star Wars characters?!?! Within a week of submitting his "report," he had people from all classes that he didn't even know coming up to him and asking if that was his video. Basically the definition of going viral in 1994!
-
“Video has this insane ability to resonate and connect with people like no other medium can... yet. You can incorporate sound bites, strong visuals, music, sound effects, and all sorts of little tools we have in our creative palettes that can strike all sorts of different cords. All these components together have the power to connect with your viewers like few other mediums, if any, can.”

#covid_19 forced the #VideoProduction industry to change drastically.

Our days over at #522Productions look, feel, and even smell a little different. Our commutes are shorter, our brainstorming sessions are quite different, and things might be a little too casual.

While some things have changed, a lot hasn’t, because even when we are apart, there is a profound need to #StayConnected and focus on what matters. We are #522Productions and we are here to help!

As we wrap up #womenshistorymonth and for many of us, one of the most turbulent months we have experienced thus far, we wanted to take the time to continue the celebration for some of the most influential women in our society.

Stories make an impact and especially now, we rely on these stories to keep us learning, engaged, and entertained.
