Keep production costs in check – Opaque Design often creates a promotional video by combining photos, logos and voice-overs with animated video effects and transitions.

This technique provides an effective promotional tool, while keeping production costs low. The resulting video can be used online or for broadcast.

Simplicity is Key – Potential customers and prospects have limited time to spend, so outline the specific benefits of your service or product. Give enough information to get them interested, but resist the temptation to go overboard with details and lose their interest.

Video Length – Shorter is better. Prospects have many things competing for their attention – get to the point. Under three minutes is usually best.

Appropriate Graphics – Professional visual transitions, effects and keys will make your video stand out.
