Content Creation Filmmaking & Videography

Video marketing and content have exploded in the past few years. On YouTube alone, over 400 hours of videos are uploaded every minute and 1 billion hours are watched on the platform every day. The fastest-growing form of content on the Web, video doesn’t just thrive online. It’s evolving. And smart brands are studying and mastering the trends. Tools like livestreaming and 360-degree video are changing the way marketing agencies and brands envision, create and deliver video content. It’s not enough to talk about video: The best examples must be seen (and heard) to be believed. Here are 20 marketing agencies and brands demonstrating how to identify the right format, message and soundtrack for a desired effect.
