Emerging Trends and Best Practices in Branded Video Content

Brands and organizations around the world are doing everything within their power to create compelling Derick_Rhodesvideos in order to engage new audiences. In his role at Shutterstock, Derick Rhodes, Director of Footage, has had a front row seat for the explosion of branded content videos over the last few years, and in this presentation he’ll analyze what works (and what doesn’t!), walk us through a few case studies of how brands effectively use video, and talk about how filmmakers and post-production professionals should think about working (or not) with brands.Shutterstock
