Each client has his own standards and look at different things.

So, here are the three main categories of videomakers, to which one do you belong to?

⦁ The Director
⦁ The Narrator
⦁ The Visionary

The first form of creativity is the one that transforms a videomaker into a sort of director. This type of videomaker must use all the techniques he knows and apply all possible effects. His video must be a masterpiece, with the right lighting, the right camera angle (take a look at our article “How to become a successful filmmaker using camera angles”), and the perfect background. Nothing should be left to chance and for the videomaker director the details really make a huge difference.
If you are this type of content creator you probably know what it means to work hard on a project and be rewarded with the perfect result, just what you wanted.

A videomaker is first of all a narrator. In videography, this type of videomaker loves the beauty of a scene in its natural state. Because of this, they hardly change something of the natural scene in front of them before filming. They are narrators, they are storytellers and they love to film what is as close as possible to the reality around them. In fact, reality does not need technical improvements, often the light is the right one, the shooting angle can be fine and all that a narrator videomaker does is simply film what inspires him without altering the contents of the scene.

The visionary videomakers has creative and imaginative skills above the standards. They create any sort of video from zero. They can think of a scenario and create it from scratch. They create the actions,  they create the emotions of the subject, they also create the background. They are true visonaries, in their minds constantly emerge new ideas that they manage to transform somehow into videos thanks to the professional use of animation software.
