Tips for creating your pitch video
Creating a captivating video or written pitch is an essential skill for any video creator. Often, it’s the first step for securing funding, support, or interest from stakeholders. A strong pitch will communicate your idea, any help you need, and the potential impact of your project in a clear and engaging way.
The first step of the application process for the $100K Fund is to create a 90-second (max) video explaining your concept. Here are our tips to help you make a compelling video pitch for the Artlist $100K Fund or any video project.
1. Start strong with a hook
The first few seconds of your video should grab your viewer’s attention immediately. You could ask a question, use a thought-provoking statement, a powerful visual, or a captivating sound. The goal here is to make your viewers want to keep watching.
2. Define your concept
Your audience will need to have a clear idea of your concept by the time they finish watching your video. But the faster you can explain it before moving on to the resources you need and the impact of your video, the better. You’ll need to clearly and succinctly explain:
- What is your project about?
- Why is it important or unique?
- Who is your target audience?
- How will it be executed?
This will show potential supporters that you have a well-thought-out plan and understand the nuances of your project.
3. Showcase your visual style
Here’s your opportunity to show rather than tell. Include any visuals, snippets, or teasers that reflect the visual style, mood, and tone you’re aiming for. You can use story-driven footage, SFX, templates, music, and more to help present your concept.
4. Keep it brief
Time is precious, especially when potential supporters are viewing multiple pitches. Keep yours as short as possible. Aim for up to 90 seconds. This will help you focus your video and only include the most essential and exciting information, ultimately making your pitch more impactful.
5. Focus on quality
While your video pitch doesn’t need to be the highest quality production with expensive equipment and professional setups, it should still be clear and well crafted. Nowadays, you can shoot quality videos just using a phone, and simple audio additions like a microphone can make a world of difference. Pay attention to your audio quality, stable visuals, clear graphics, and good lighting to give your video the best chance of being received well.
Remember, you’ve got to be in it to win it, so start creating your entry video today.
