Planning a Video Shoot
- The typical format is interview-style video, where the owner or manager talks about the business, with b-roll footage played during most of the talking.
- Unscripted is best, but a teleprompter is available.
- Keep it short, stick to highlights about the business.
- We’ll do the interview portion all in one take, if you mess up or need to pause to catch your train of thought, no problem, pauses, mistakes and the occassional “Um” will be edited out in post.
- Video shoots typically take less than an hour with the interview portion usually only taking 5 minutes or so.
- It’s best to shoot when the business is closed, or when customer traffic is low to get the best audio.
- For the interview portion, turn off any music or tvs, and if possible, shut off the HVAC for a few minutes to get the cleanest audio.
Planning a Google Street View Shoot
To make sure your business looks it’s best, here’s some guidelines for prepping for a Google Street View Shoot.
- Pick a time when the business is either closed or when customer volume is very low. People can be in the shots, but it looks better without them.
- Tidy up. Clean up the floors, straighten up chairs and tables, behind the bar, etc. The camera can see 360 degrees around, and from floor to ceiling.
- Consider hiding or erasing any menu boards with seasonal or limited time offers or menu items, so customers won’t be disappointed if those items are no longer available when they visit.
- Turn on all lights
- Turn off any TVs or moving displays.
- The photoshoot takes between 30-45 minutes typically.
- The resulting photos can be processed and live on Google maps within a few days.
