HERE WE GO!
Or as the Muppets used to say “It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights…”
Starting an event with a bang is something that a lot of people many folks don’t consider. A quick “Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome…” is how a lot of events start.
A video ‘sting’ however can change all that. Yes, it called a sting for that very reason. A sharp and short (or long) high impact opening effect that lets your audience know we’re starting.
It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t have to be a full-on Muppet Show song and dance either (though that would be great!). A short blast of high impact music and graphics based round your brand could be enough. Fifteen seconds worth combined with some moving LED lights and your audience are focused on what’s coming up – hook the audience in.
Something longer works too to create suspense and add to the excitement of the evening – but we usually recommend 90 seconds maximum.
We produce these for many events and it’s a great time to get your message started, set the tone and feature key sponsors or a establish your brand.
Have something produced which is bespoke to every event or something more generic that you can use all year round. It really will add the professional touch.
Ask to speak to one of our project managers who’s be happy to give some great examples.
