Join PRSA Cleveland and Neil McCormick, Chairman, Cinecraft Productions, as he discusses and demonstrates the latest use of Video in Public Relations through the Art of Visual Storytelling.

  • The human attention span is now 8 seconds
  • Visuals are processed 60K faster than text (meaning a visual is worth 60,000 words)
  • 40% of people respond better to visual information than written text
  • 1 minute of video is more powerful than 1.8 million words
  • 84% of communications will be visual by 2018

Facts from a recent article in Forbes – The New Era of Media: Visual Public Relations

Statistics don’t lie when it comes to video content. According to London-based multimedia agency Fresh 01: Internet video traffic will be up to 82% of all global consumer Internet traffic by 2020. As such, video campaigns, once the most luxurious and costly of PR tactics, are now a necessity.

To ensure campaigns are visually engaging, video content for PR has been proven to cultivate millions of views, dramatically increasing the status of brands and campaigns, providing a source of discussion for influencers and target audiences alike.

Using creative video content also bolsters the ranking on search engines such as Google. Plus, one great PR bonus of video content is it’s engagement levels. People watch, comment and often share things they have watched online, especially on social media channels.

CVATD Monthly Meeting – The Anatomy of a Video-Based Simulation

News, , , ,

Join the Cuyahoga Valley ATD Chapter for a presentation by Dan Keckan, VP eLearning & Instructional Design at Cinécraft Productions. The presentation will take place on September 13, 2017 from 5:30-8:00pm at Akron General Health and Wellness Center – West.

Behavioral video-based simulations are perfect for changing behaviors. But designing simulations that are linear or non-linear (branched or not) is not an easy task. To further complicate the design process, adding in video can be daunting.

Join this session to learn how to create effective simulations that combine video and e-learning to inspire behavior change.

You’ll get to experience award-winning, video-based simulations and learn about practical tools you can use on your next project.

Come away with tips and techniques you can apply back on the job when designing, producing, and developing video simulations.
