Film is a powerful medium.
Through a few well-timed, well-framed shots, clips and audio-visual displays, you’re able to tell powerful stories. Whether it’s a few seconds or several hours, films can be used to talk about and capture so much when it comes to the human experience.
From personal stories and narratives, to stories about other people, incidents and even compilations and reflections of moments from people’s lives, there’s so much to do. There’s nothing quite like film to capture all that and more.
From the Silver Screen to Your Device Screen
Films have long been used to tell stories of people around the world. Depicted by celebrities, starlets and heroes, there’s a certain glamour and distance between the ordinary person and the world of film.
This was partly because producing and creating films was expensive and arduous, not something ordinary people, who lacked the right training and resources, could do. Filmmaking though still difficult and highly technical, requiring years of study and experience, is a lot more accessible to people now.
A lot of this has come from the emergence of the camcorder and home video, which was another way for ordinary individuals to record and preserve special moments and occasions. As technology developed and improved over time, becoming more and more accessible to companies and individuals, with more people learning necessary skills and developing an interest, it’s no surprise that videography became so popular.
In fact, it’s become even more specialized, technical and nothing short of art; it’s part of the art of storytelling. There’s a lot of learning and teaching involved, with people undergoing years of formal and informal education and training to be good at what they are.
Why is videography so popular?
It’s allowed a lot of people to connect with their dreams, very simply put.
Not everyone wants to—or can be—a big-league filmmaker or director, churning out multimillion-dollar projects year after year.
In fact, it allows people to tell stories on their own too. There’s a huge market for wedding cinematography Sydney, for instance. There are markets for business and event videographers in general and marketing trends are shifting to a greater focus on storytelling.
Video is a medium that allows you to bring together narratives and weave a whole picture, invoking emotions, sharing messages and playing with visuals to create nothing short of art. It’s the reason so many people sit through videos about things that they’d never thing mattered to them—yet feel so moved by what’s on their screens.
