Benefits of Remote Video Production
With the outbreak of COVID-19, a lot of businesses needed to quickly pivot into work-from-home situations, including video production companies. Agencies were forced to suddenly halt and shut down their current productions, or drastically reduce the amount of staff involved on in-person shoots due to social distancing restrictions.
This pandemic pushed forward many out-of-the-box innovative approaches, one of which being remote video production, which allows a production team to create gorgeous, high-quality video content without any need for in-person contact from the crew.
The current health situation that faces us all has thrust this form of production into the spotlight. Is remote video production here to stay when things return to “normal?” Well aside from the obvious underlying advantage of remaining safe amid a global pandemic, what are the benefits of remote video production? We’ll discuss our top 3 – budget, productivity & efficiency.
It’s no secret that production costs are a major focus and concern for broadcasters, business owners, and essentially everybody nowadays. The cost of equipment, labor and travel – including airfare, lodging and meals – are all involved in the expense of video production. But with remote video production, as fewer people are needed on site or out in the field, expenses required for travel are vastly reduced, freeing up a lot of budgetary restrictions.
In addition, remote video production also means you won’t have the hefty cost of renting vehicles in order to transport expensive, fragile production equipment to a remote location. Since all filming will be handled from a remote setting, you will save on both time and cost associated with transporting equipment to and from filming locations.
Productivity & Efficiency
In addition to price reductions, another major benefit of remote video production is that productivity and efficiency are enhanced. Indeed, the two go hand-in-hand. Traditional video production requires sending members of the team to a particular location for live shooting, and then awaiting their return before you can begin work on the next project. This means your attention and resources must be focused on one project at a time.
But remote video production allows you to maximize your workflow and save time because the production crew can manage more than one production during the day, meaning you’re covering more events with the same number of people. Not to mention the time it takes to set up and break down equipment for each shoot is also greatly minimized.
In short, if you’re looking for an alternative to traditional video production amid these uncertain times, consider remote production. It’s an effective and reliable solution that requires less spend while increasing efficiency as it pertains to allocating your resources, boosting your production output and generating more overall revenue.
