The best way to create a truly outstanding company overview or brand video is to engage a creative agency that has a track record for producing them. A great video production company will work closely with you to fully understand your brand promise so you can create meaningful and emotional connections with your customers.
So what should you look for in a branded video production company? Most importantly, you want to engage a company that has experience and understands your brand and company mission.
The process for branded content video production should be a partnership between your team and the production company. The agency you choose should have open lines of communication with you, consistently getting your team’s feedback on their ideas and vision for the video. They should provide a proposal that clearly details how they’ll help you achieve your goals, their ideas and vision for the project, and clear deadlines and budget so everyone can track progress.
Lots of video production companies produce explainer videos, but in our humble opinion there’s a real art to creating something original that creatively and clearly explains your value proposition. Explainer videos are very effective marketing tools, but they can also become cookie-cutter and predictable in their execution.
An explainer video is an amplification of your product offerings and if done right should move the needle in your sales goals.

Accellion is a tech company based in Silicon Valley. They asked Studio B Films to produce an explainer video that showcased their new secure file sharing platform. We didn’t want to create a predictable, run-of-the-mill video. We wanted Accellion to stand out among the competition. So we set out to break the genre and add a little magic.
Rather than start with a specific customer story based on one character’s experience, we decided to tell the story based on the main question that their team asked when developing the platform: How can we build the best file sharing platform from the ground up?
We shot two hands from the first person POV that would be manipulating an interface in the air as we discussed what the platform offers. The hands provided the human connection to the product and showed that these products were developed for real people who want to work from anywhere. By using graphics in space, we were able to explain the value proposition of the product while unveiling its beautiful interface. Once the hands built the product, an iPad materialized on-screen and the viewer got to see the software at work.
