Documentaries have always been one of the most powerful storytelling formats.
People telling their own unique stories in their own words, along with video, photos, documents, and other powerful images, communicates on an immediate, basic level with the audience.
Video documentaries connect with people emotionally, allowing the viewers to experience first-hand the message you want to promote.
Creating Your Documentary
Everybody has a story to tell. It could be the story about your life, your business or organization, or even a social or political cause that is important to you.
Creating a video documentary is one of the most effective ways to tell your story. It’s also the best way to get your story out to other people in the most proficient manner.
Once your video documentary has been made, it can be distributed over an endless number of channels, including free video sharing sites like Vimeo and YouTube, on social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter, and even on your business or organization’s website.
Your video documentary can be printed onto DVDs that you can sell on your website or distribute for free to prospective customers or clients. It could even be shown theatrically.
When most people think of documentaries, they generally think of long-form videos that last anywhere from 30 minutes to a couple of hours.
But video documentaries don’t have to be long to be effective. In many cases, powerful stories can be told in just a few minutes. As long as the message is engaging and the story is genuine, there will always be an audience for your video documentary.
Creating your documentary begins with contacting professional videographers, such as the ones you will find at Hawaii Video Pro. We have helped dozens of people tell their personals stories using documentaries. And we can help you, too.
