    • First Things to Consider
      What is (are) the Message(s)?
      Who is (are) the Audience(s)?
      What is (are) the best Production Tool(s)?
      What is (are) the best delivery method(s)?
      When considering these elements, keep in mind the GENRE of content as well…
    • Three Genres of Video
      Webinar/Teaching Material
      Marketing/Promotional Material
      Viral/Community Material
      To determine what a project is, all new media projects begin with an Exploratory Document discussing message(s), audience(s), and other strategic elements.
    • Media Project Exploratory Document
      Your Audience(s)
      The overall theme(s) of what you are attempting to describe
      The sub-sections of content into which your themes can be divided
      The content essence of each message or episode (headline style – 140 characters or less)
      A tabulation of the number of total messages, content sub-sections, and themes per audience
      Paragraph narrative descriptions (500 words or less) describing the content of each “EPISODE”
    • Media Project Best Practices
      Think in terms of “EPISODES” of a “SERIES” for longevity and audience penetration
      Use Intros and Outros to orient the viewer quickly and reiterate branding efforts.
      Keep the delivery platform AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE – if it can be a soundless .ppt, let it be, but still manage distribution
      Each Genre of Content has a “Playlist”
