Types of video production services available to businesses and organizations today

Corporate video production is created for a business or organization. Corporate videos promote the company, its products or services, or communicate a message to employees, customers, or shareholders. Corporate video production includes;
- Explainer video:
As the name suggests, these videos are designed to educate customers about how something works. An explainer video is usually short (around two minutes or less) and straight to the point. They are a great way to inform your company, product, or service to potential customers on complex or unfamiliar topics relating to your business.
- Branding video:
Branding videos are a type of corporate video that is created to promote your brand. These videos can introduce your company to potential customers or build brand awareness among existing customers. They’re also designed to give viewers a feel for your company’s culture and values, and convince them your company's products and services are the right choice.
- Training and educational videos:
Training and educational videos are created to educate employees or customers on a particular topic. They can be used to train new employees on company policies and procedures or to educate customers on how to use your product.
- Marketing and advertising videos:
These videos are used to promote your company, product, or service. They can be used on your website, in social media campaigns, or as part of a larger marketing strategy.

Real estate videos are used to give potential buyers an idea of what the property looks like and highlight its features. W Beyer Creative has produced brokerage marketing videos and property walkthrough videos for Coldwell Banker Prime Properties, Nye Properties at Keller Williams Realty, Albany Realty Group, Howard Hanna, Pyramid Brokerage, and more. Videography for real estate listings includes;

Home tours video gives viewers a tour of the property, from the front door to the back yard.

7. Video editing services:
Video editing is the process of reviewing all of the footage and creating a finished product. W Beyer Creative can edit videos for your company if you have existing unused footage collecting dust. Nearly every project we film will require this important step to providing you with a usable product. Also called "post-production", the video editing process includes:
Ingesting is the process of loading imported video files into the editing program to build out the video.
Cutting is the process of removing unwanted footage from a video. For example, a 30 minute interview may be cut down to a 30-second sound bite.
Splicing is the process of adding new footage to a video. This may include weaving multiple interviews into a flowing story as well as incorporating supplemental visuals ("b-roll" footage).
Effects are used to enhance a video's look or change the way footage looks. This can include transitions, overlays, masking, applied filters, and more.
- Color Grading and Audio Correction:
Captured footage and audio directly out of camera doesn't cut it. Video editors enhance the look of your video's footage to make sure the colors are attractive and consistent, the exposure is appealing, and the audio levels are optimal for listening.
- Motion Graphics:
Video editors create and apply motion graphics and text animations into the video (think colors, transitions, and words you see on a video). Graphics and text style the piece to match your company's brand, highlight key takeaways in the video, and grab attention when a viewer's sound is off.
- Closed Captioning:
Closed captioning is the process of transcribing a video's contained audio and converting it into text that can overlay bottom of the screen while the video is playing. This allows your viewers to read along with the dialogue.
8. Video marketing:
