In a media-saturated world, only the best videos make an impact
Audiences interpret images and stories on an emotional level. A thoughtfully crafted video strikes a chord with the target audience and inspires them to take the desired action. The videographer’s goal is to present emotive images that the audience absorbs fully, and can hopefully recollect in the future. Meaningful videos have an impact and are especially beneficial when you want to create urgency (e.g.: a limited-period offer) or communicate your brand values with clarity and purpose.
As far visual communications go, nothing beats a quality video in creating the right impressions and urging people to think, feel and act. As one of the best videographers in NYC, Crafted has what it takes to realize your brand vision and support your business goals.
Digital Storytelling: The blurring lines between videography and cinematography
Cinematography and videography are both slightly different disciplines. Videographers are most closely associated with cameramen/camerawomen or camera operators. They usually work alone and take responsibility of other elements of production, much like a ‘one-man team’.
Videography services are commonly provided at weddings and conferences, with the videographer’s goal being to capture the key moments as they are occurring. There is no time to prep for a style or creative direction, although the best videographers in NYC deliver an accurate representation of the significance and mood of the event.
Cinematographers have more freedom to plan how to tell a brand story or sell a service. They have time to flesh out aspects such as intimacy/distance between the video’s subjects, intensity of light, camera angles and positions, and the little details that can have a big impact.
In this sense, a cinematographer can produce meaningful, curated moving images that benefit from a pre-video shoot understanding and narrative. As a cinematographer’s work is more creatively molded and receives the contribution of several talented members of a typically large crew, the output also tends to be potent.
So, does this mean you’re better off hiring a cinematographer for your business video? Well, if you want your video to capture aerial shots that provide a panoramic view of the outdoors or need a specific visual aesthetic that a cinematographer can capture more effectively, you should consider videography services NYC.
On the other hand, if your video does not require aerial drone photography or a near-cinematic effect, videography NYC services will do just fine. DSLR cameras and high-tech video equipment have become accessible to videographers, enabling them to produce results that come close to cinematic images.
