Walk-through video production refers to the filming of a video that explains to the viewers about something in detail. This could be how to play a game, details about a property listed for sale, new car model specifications, tactics on how to solve a Rubik’s cube, and more. Walk-through video’s are simply what the name suggests “Walking-you-through-something”. Many properties for sale today are using this form of video production to market their properties as it is an exclusive way to get the attention of a buyer, make them see exactly what they are buying, and out-smart competition in the real estate market.
Making a walk-through video is not all that difficult today. But if you want to stand a chance in this highly competitive market of quality for value, you need to do something better than normal. Planning before starting a walk-through video production is critical. Start by thinking about the type of end-product you would love to realize on the finalized shoot. How will it appeal to the desired audience? Would you enjoy watching it yourself? Will it serve the needs your audience is looking for? All these questions will help you establish a formidable foundation from the word go. Consider what video production skills you have, equipment and budget. Depending on the quality of production you want, all these factors will come in handy throughout the process.
The actual walk-through shoot will highly depend on various things including, purpose of the video, equipment used, and skills of the videographer. For simple walk-through videos such as on how to solve a rubik’s cube, you can use a smartphone with a strong back camera. For car reviews, you can use Gopro mounted cameras to capture different angles of the car even as you drive alone. For property listing videos, you can shoot with HD cameras to get the best presentation to your buyers. You can also use drones to capture aerial footage of the property and its surroundings.
When done with shooting, don’t just let the video out as it is. Try and edit it to remove any unwanted parts as you focus on its best aspects. Also ensure that the lighting and sound on it is perfect. Ask yourself, is this something I would enjoy watching? Getting ideas from other samples of walk-through videos can help you deliver great quality even if it’s your first walk-through shoot.
