We were tasked with the production of a motion graphics marketing video for the 2022 AGOA Exporter of the Year awards. The AGOA Exporter of the year awards are facilitated by the International Trade Institute of Southern Africa (ITRISA) and funded by USAID. The awards happen every year, and this was the second year in a row we were responsible for the marketing and content production of the entire event. This even included hybrid live stream events, where we both facilitated the live streams, content production and all follow-up content related to the AGOA Exporter of the year awards show.
The purpose of the video was to highlight the submission process for the Exporter of the Year nominees throughout various categories. The video is a combination of custom motion graphics, design and stock footage. This combination and style of video was perfectly suited for its application, which was to complement their nomination process through simplified instruction. This approach also meant we could produce the video quickly and cheaply as there was no filming or additional organisation required.
For the video narration, one of our team members was the voice artist. This saved the client on budget and reduced any potential delays for recording. The voice recording was done in-house in our recording studio. The script was also written by our team and approved within a day of our kick-off meeting. This style and approach of video meant we could produce the video within a very short timeline and at a minimum budget.
This video was part of a much larger project that involved a multi-disciplined approach of marketing videos, website development, content strategy, social media management, copywriting, eLearning development and LMS development. We were one of few agencies that had the absolute capabilities and capacity to handle a project of this nature and size, while remaining bespoke.
For the video’s transition clips and B-roll we used a combination of stock footage and custom integrated motion graphics. This allowed us to save the client further on budget, while also reducing potential production delays. Some additional benefits of using stock footage include:
Professional Quality: Stock footage is typically created by experienced videographers and cinematographers, ensuring high production value and professional quality.
Variety and Versatility: Stock footage libraries offer a wide range of clips covering various topics, locations, and themes. This allows you to find the perfect footage to complement your video and enhance its storytelling.
Bridge Between Scenes: Stock footage can act as a bridge between different scenes, creating a seamless flow in your video production.
Enhances Visual Appeal: Incorporating stock footage can add visual interest and variety to your videos, making them more engaging for viewers.
Flexibility in Editing: With stock footage, you have the flexibility to edit and customize the clips to fit your specific requirements. This allows you to create unique and customized videos.
Accessible Licensing: Many stock footage platforms offer royalty-free licenses, allowing you to use the footage in multiple projects without additional costs or legal complications.
