Remote Filming Solutions: Repurposed Content

In these uncertain times, we understand it’s more important than ever to ensure clear and effective communication with your teams, clients and customers to reassure that they can still expect an excellent offering from you.

With close contact being discouraged at this time and major cinematic productions being put on hold – there are obvious limitations on filming projects, but there are alternative solutions to your filming needs.

At The Edge, we’ve been developing remote filming solutions for over 30 years and can offer innovative Repurposed Content to convey your message. Repurposed Content is a powerful tool to deliver comms messages and is specifically one of our areas of expertise.

What is Repurposed Content? We take footage from existing films and add new captions, graphics, voiceovers or music to transform into a brand new piece of content.  We have a roster of freelance voiceover artists with their own recording equipment and have measures in place for our edit team to work remotely.

As an example:

Qatar Free Zones Authority needed a film that promoted Qatar’s economical ‘free zones’ whilst showcasing the potential business opportunities of investing in Qatar. Minimal filming was required due to the use of our stunning archive footage combined with compelling editing and motion graphics to deliver headlines.

Advantages of using Repurposed Content:

Low Cost
A very necessary advantage right now is that it’s low-cost and quick to get out there – possibly even on the same day so that regular updates are easy to achieve. Save your spend for the marketing push and ensure your message reaches everyone you intend it to.

Familiar Faces
You may want to include senior leaders in a new message fast. We can use previous footage that includes these business leaders and add a newly recorded narrative or caption to communicate the new message.

Reignite Successes
If you have a piece of film that was well received by your audience and accumulated good metrics, why wouldn’t you repurpose it – with a new fresh take!

Nostalgia
Maybe you’re a company that’s been going for a long time, possibly decades? What did your first marketing campaigns look like? Did you use a different logo? A theme that could be brought back to life? Nostalgia in film is a great way to drum up emotive loyalty. Need an example? Think the Coca-Cola – Christmas ad. Or more recently, Opal Fruits. It’s a tested and proven marketing tactic.

The possibilities that Repurposed Content offer up are endless. The style fits all tones of communication, film, any business, and for any length of film. We can help advise on which style and format are the best for your company and campaign.
