  • Formats and their applications
    • For play back on DVD player offline
      • Blu-ray – high definition – most masters will be in this version and it’s ideal if selling high quality hard copy products – not everyone can play – has to be special player

    • Online - From 10 seconds i.e. ‘welcome to my website’ to 2.5 minutes i.e. YouTube UNLESS it’s VERY engaging content
    • Hard copy – unlimited – from 10-20 minutes for training/promotional videos right up to as many DVDs in the set as you want i.e. HOURS worth!
  • Key considerations before you get started
    • Deadline
    • Budget (equipment examples)
    • Ideas regarding the creative approach, brainstorm
    • Scripted/story boarded/spontaneous? – do you need help with these?
    • Talent – feature yourself or get models/voice over/actors/professionals

    • Quantities - Initial and plans if receive bulk orders

    • There are 3 format options for You Tube:

    • High quality - medium quality – 640 x 480 pixels – square or 640 x 360 if wide screen. You need to have a data rate of at least 2000 – 4000 kbps.
    • High definition – highest quality – 1280 x 1024 pixels – only wide screen - You need to have a data rate of at least 2000 – 4000 kbps. YouTube can now view 16:9 format HD video
    • Note - MP4 is the best format for YouTube for the bottom 2 settings.
    • Small file size but clearer image.
  • SEO Considerations for You Tube
    • Review most viewed to see traffic
    • Thumbnail is VERY important
    • YouTube uses middle images of the video as the frame
    • Insert your web address in the description first. Make sure you use http://www to make the link live
    • Display the web address throughout the video and give them the call to action
    • At the end of the video, point over to the info box and TELL them to click on the link in the description box …CALL TO ACTION or use a BIG ARROW
    • At the end of the video you can make the video repeat or insert a title image at the end that has call to action
    • Headlines need to be keyword rich and provocative
    • Under original description insert keywords or text from the top Google listings on Google to make the description keyword rich
    • Use a good domain if promoting affiliate products which are easy to remember
    • Cool new feature to help with SEO
    • New CS4 transcript output options (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2009/02/25/us/politics/20090225-OBAMA-CONGRESS.html)
