Branded content is more in demand today than ever. Additionally, today’s technology offers uncompromised high production value, with small crews and affordable gear. This panel discussion will center on creative topics such as growing industry video trends, creating content for multiple platforms, engaging audiences, and maintaining authenticity while creating effective content. Additionally, the panel will dive into the process of content creation: shooting quickly, working with small crews & lightweight equipment, and keeping within your budget. Multiple and varied perspectives will be included, with representatives from brands and agencies, as well as working DPs and other creatives. The goal is to give an in-depth look at the many decisions that go into creating successful branded content. There will also be ample time for audience Q&A with the panelists.
