Traditional video production limits creativity. By reducing the high costs and man-hours of creating video, OpenReel helps teams reclaim the ability to experiment with ideas and with day-to-day marketing use cases.

Organizations around the world are shifting to hybrid or even returning to in-person models. During this transition, teams are focusing on maintaining the workflows that were truly impactful last year. These workflows were developed out of necessity to simplify manual administrative tasks and create better collaboration for distributed workforces and their audiences.  

End-to-end video tools are one such solution, allowing teams, whether distributed or in-person, to create more video. They do this by reducing the time it takes to create a video and the expense that goes into a single project. 

Creative Video Use Cases for Marketers

As we strive to carry the agile spirit of 2020 into 2021 and beyond, it begs the question… If given the budget, time, and know-how, what report, emails, events, or slideshow presentations would you prefer to adapt to video in your day-to-day?

Some common use cases our marketing customers love:

  • Social media

Empower your team to be self-sufficient video marketers

While the use cases outlined above can absolutely be filmed on-site and in-person using equipment you already have on-hand to produce polished results, you can more easily and more quickly film them with a remote video creation solution. With tools like OpenReel, teams are empowered to produce low-lift content with less dependence on busy video production teams than ever before. As things normalize and more crews return to filming onsite, video teams are booked solid, but OpenReel customers haven’t missed a beat; they’re able to film when and where they need video in a self-sufficient way and remove some of the heavy lift from their video teams. Now is the time to think beyond the norm to experimenting with additional creative edge use cases that are no longer so out of reach.
