2020 and the novel Covid-19 pandemic have added the word “Remote” to our everyday lives rather dramatically. Teams, businesses, leaders’ summits, launches, events – everything is online.
In such a scenario where movement is restricted, travel is prohibited – how does one conduct Leadership interviews, events and meets? Remotely. From the comfort of your home. We send you the equipment, we direct you remotely, we manage all technical paraphernalia – all you need to do is focus on the interview.
“It is a struggle to maintain multiple moving elements that go into producing a video all by yourself”
Very often, a brilliantly crafted speech, all the hard work of dressing up, turning up is dulled by poor, pixelated video quality and inconsistent, muffled audio. This is the last thing any organisation desires. It is a struggle to maintain multiple moving elements that go into producing a video all by yourself. The background, its lighting, the direction of facing the camera, the angle of facing the camera, the distance between the lens and the subject, audio clarity, position of the microphone, gestures etc.- the final video is a product of all these aspects functioning like clockwork.
Now that the world has shifted its gears to digital altogether – remote video production becomes increasingly important. Moving forward, more and more events, meets and panel discussions are going to feature online. In such a scenario, one cannot afford to have sub-par video production quality.

Here’s how remote interviews are here to stay-
Affordable: Remote video production doesn’t burn a hole in the pocket, since we’re able to eliminate travel and lodging costs. With these expenses out of the budget, you still get a broadcast-grade video quality with complete remote assistance at a much leaner budget. This makes remote video production an absolute win-win
Independent of Internet: Pre-recorded videos become an indispensable asset- While it is possible to shoot live on Skype or Zoom, such a scenario can be disrupted due to unwanted and often, unforeseen glitches. To avoid that we shoot pre-recorded videos which make the whole event a piece of cake. Streaming a pre-recorded video ensures a smooth and frictionless execution, one that you can be proud of.
Proper Sanitisation: We deliver your remote production kit which is fully sanitised, thoroughly cleaned and properly packed to ensure safe long-haul travel. The kit is delivered to you at your door step.
Efficient Video production: With no person-to-person contact and efficient remote video communication, we’re able to optimise the video production by saving on time and delivering results much faster with greater operational efficiency.
Video shoot becomes a breeze: We know facing a camera can be unnerving for some. That’s why we do a dry run before the actual shoot. This is where we iron out the final details of posture, dress, positioning of equipment, sound check etc. This helps to take the edge off and final shoot turns into a breeze.
Time saving: A typical video shoot is a time-guzzling process that requires at least two and a half days or seventy hours of time, whereas a remote interview shoot gets done and dusted in merely five to six hours, including the dry run. The massive amount of time saved is invested in post-production that creates a video at par with the on-site one.
Post-Production Prowess: Post-production employs the choicest tools at our disposal in our video production arsenal to achieve sleek editing using VFX, Adobe After Effects, Premier Pro, Illustrator etc. Each minute detail of the final output video including the call outs and lower thirds are custom-built to precision. We incorporate graphically rich images, excellent quality relevant stock photos, appropriate background score and bring out a video that matches a traditionally shot video quality.
Adaptation is the key to survival when rules of the game change. Pandemic changed the rules industry-wide and switching to remote videos is a game-changer not only for survival but also to sustain a trailblazing solution like remote video production. What may have been necessitated out of lockdown movement restrictions holds potential to take centerstage even beyond the pandemic phase owing to greater efficiency, reduced cost and quick operational pace. Remote is the buzzword and it is certainly here to stay.
