Bring It to Life with Actors, Presenters and a Cast
Training videos scenes often need dramatising. Take a look at these three examples.
- We see staff with customers.
- We see a procedure being demonstrated
- We need to motivate a workforce with a grudge.
All the above need bringing to life to make the video have the impact it needs.
A simple solution is to use a cast of actors, even one or two. It isn’t that expensive. Yet dramatised scenes with a thought provoking script can add the flavour of real life to your training video production.
Look at these examples:
- In customer-facing situations, actors can show a whole raft of interpersonal skills in operation.
- In a procedural video, actors can highlight key issues or key points in memorable ways that involve the audience and make them feel part of it.
When you need to motivate, actors can stimulate and make the audience want to copy them. Or they can explain things in a more credible real-world language than a more formal voiceover.
More than anything, drama and actors can relive the tedium of a solely voiceover-led video.
Presenters work much the same way.
A Presenter can:
- link scenes together, sustaining the flow of learning
- summarise the key learning points
- explain emotional or difficult issues in a human way
- create excitement with their enthusiasm.
Top Tip: If you want to bring your video to life, then use actors, drama or a presenter.
