Three Important Components for Creating a TV Commercial

Three Important Components for Creating a TV Commercial

Advertising through a Commercial

A TV commercial is a very popular and important form of advertising. Whenever a person or company wants to create a TV commercial, there are some important components to keep in mind.

The Script

The purpose of a commercial is to convince the viewers to purchase your product or service. The script should be short, yet possess key points that will capture the interest of others.

The Visuals

Whether it’s people, objects or a combination of both, the visuals will have an impact on the commercial. The visuals used should relate to the product and perfectly suit the subject matter.

The Production

What’s the point of having a good script and great actors if the production quality is low? It’s important that both audio and visual are of high quality and match well with the other.

Website Is Important Asset For Business

All Businesses Can Benefit from a Website

Whether it’s a small business, or a large corporation, a website is an important asset to any company. A business can achieve greater success with a properly structured website.

Increases Online Presence

There has been a steady increase in online searches. People use the internet to find the services and products they need, or even conduct research on companies. A website allows people to find adequate and important information about a company.

Free Wavz Video Shoot with Sony F5

Free Wavz Video Shoot with Sony F5


Digital Zoetrope Productions was hired by Tight Line Productions recently to shoot and edit a video highlighting the ease of use of the Free Wavz wireless headphones during workouts. The video was shot primarily with our Sony F5 Cinealta camera. A GoPro Hero 3+ attached to a Phantom Quadcopter also was used for a few aerial shots.

For many of the exercise shots such as the CrossFit sequence and Boxing sequences, we utilized the F5’s high frame rate capabilities and recorded at 180 frames per second. This allowed us to slow down and ramp up the video in post to create a unique look for the video.

Free Wavz are wireless headphones made by Hear Gear and are designed for workouts. So to show off the freedom wireless headphones give you, we shot four “Vignettes” with different workouts, Boxing, Weight Lifting, CrossFit and Running.

The first 3 vignettes were shot in a gym while the running vignette was filmed along the causeway and riverfront in Melbourne. The Sony F5 primarily shot with our 24-78mm f2.8 lens with a couple of shots utilizing our wide angle 12-24mm f4 lens and our 50mm f1.4 Zeiss prime lens. Lighting was primarily accomplished with Kino Flo Diva lights and Mole Richardson Baby and Tweeny LED lights.

Post-production was completed on Digital Zoetrope’s Adobe Premiere Pro editing system. The Sony F5’s robust codec and S-Log2 capabilities allowed us to really play with the color correction in post to give the video a more “edgy” look. Check out the finished video above.
