In this video, I’m going to give you 10 different creative ways for you to use, to shoot B-roll in your office. Let’s face it. Offices can seem a little boring at times, and sometimes it’s hard to come up with B like ideas for what to shoot when creating your brand films or bio videos. So let’s dive into these 10 simple ideas to get the creative juices flowing.
Number one, walking into work, working at a desk, talking on the phone. Since there won’t be any audio, they can literally be talking about whatever they want. Knick knacks, this is a great one to give that little personal touch. For each of these different scenes, I’m capturing a couple different angles in a couple different takes. Getting coffee, because who doesn’t love coffee? Collaborating, it’s always good to get some teamwork here. Huddle room meeting, writing on a whiteboard, writing in a notebook, a portrait, just a simple portrait I think goes a long way. It really highlights the person in front of the camera.
These shots are always a great option to fall back on. And a bonus tip, number 11, get out of the office. Look for green spaces and parks a short distance from the office. These can really add a ton of brightness to your video. If you need more ideas, the best way to do that is just ask the person, what are you doing in your typical day? And shoot the most visually interesting parts. And lastly, don’t stress too much. There’s only so many different ways you can shoot inside an office before it starts getting stale and repetitive.
As always, thanks so much for watching and see you next time.
