Video has been around for many decades, but it has evolved in many different formats. Now, digital video is the most popular trend to date, thanks to advances in mobile technology and the emergence of streaming services and social media websites such as YouTube, where ordinary members of the public can record and capture moments in an instant using a smartphone or a camcorder.
Here are some of the reasons why video is the way forward, and why video capture continues to be a growing trend.
1. Video content is highly popular
Many people prefer to view visual and moving content, as opposed to consuming it in written form. For example, many people go to YouTube to watch videos and it is a highly populated platform that anyone can use. YouTube is a platform that caters to all – those who are searching for tips, those who like to watch reviews, and those who like to watch people ‘vlog’ about their daily lives. All in all, people like to watch video and it’s not exclusive – anyone can capture video and you don’t need to be an expert.
2. Video is a form of creativity
Video offers a platform for expressing your creative side. You can express your thoughts and feelings on video as opposed to writing those down in a diary or on a blog. Also, by using video, you can create footage (i.e. a short film) showcasing your talents and skills in the process.
3. Video is personal
The best thing about video is that you can film and capture the best moments of your life and those special occasions, such as a birthday, a graduation ceremony or sports day. Video capture allows you to store and create wonderful and timeless memories that you can revisit over and over again with your loved ones, and this creates a sense of unity.
4. Video is a viable form of marketing
This year, video is a massive trend in the digital media and marketing worlds, so much so that it has been implemented and incorporated within many digital and social media platforms. This is because video encourages interactivity and engagement from clients and consumers.
5. Video is commercial
These days, you can make a business out of video content and there are many career options available in this field. For example, you can become a video editor or video producer for a brand or agency. If you want to put your video skills to commercial use then you can start a business that would involve video capture i.e. becoming a self-employed videographer. Alternatively, you could even become the next superstar on YouTube!
