These days, what’s good for the natural environment is equally good for today’s video environment: recycling—also known, in the contemporary parlance of video production, as “repurposing.”

It’s a simple idea to increase efficiency:

  • First, you strategically plan a given video shoot to capture relevant footage of your people, your programs and/or your products.
  • Next, you edit that footage, adding voiceover, music, motion graphics, etc. to produce the video project at hand.
  • You then create an archive of the clips used in that video—along with the unused clips—for easy retrieval.
  • Finally, you leverage footage from that archive to create new versions of the initial video for a wide variety of distribution opportunities—both now and in the future.

Given the hunger for video today, companies are finding that repurposing is an excellent way to amortize the cost of a single shoot over many executions.

Resourceful Repurposing Tips

When concepting, writing, shooting, editing and outputting a video project, consider how its content—from footage, to interviews, to graphics and music—might appropriately be recycled into video vehicles for distribution platforms such as:

  • Your company Website
  • Sales presentations
  • Trade shows
  • Employee orientation
  • Investor relations
  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Press releases and more.
