Video and film production is an industry that has not traditionally been associated with efficiency and sustainability. Undoubtedly, pulling off a production takes a specialized team of professionals that manage every single detail from the budget for lens rentals down to who is providing the catering. Producers are often forced to deliver nothing short of a miracle with crunched timelines and conservative budgets. These common limitations can force producers and studios to cut costs and corners when needed, which often means eliminating environmentally sustainable practices.
In this week’s story, we were inspired by Guy Bauer, StudioNow Creative Network member since 2015 and founder of Guy Bauer Productions. Specializing in visual storytelling, Guy gives StudioNow the scoop about how to craft videos that get results. Guy shares his personal experience in how to achieve awesome video productions and how to go from good to great.
