At Billo, you'll find a variety of different scripts to work with. Some can have more direction than others. Whichever task you choose, once you're approved - it's your responsibility to take a brand's vision and turn it into compelling content. 🎥
Let's go through some pointers that will help you to avoid edit requests by covering all the details in the task brief.
Creative mode 🎨
Good news! You can put your creative genius brain to use and become the director for the video yourself. 🎥🧑🎨
There is no scenario provided for this kind of brief, but it’s important to pay attention to the Additional Details. Perhaps the brand left a message there!
If not, we recommend writing a script for your video shoot beforehand!
Detailed brief 📝
You will see the Scenes and Mentions that you have to include in the video under the "Scenario". You can rephrase some stuff or add your own creative spin on it - but stay on the brief and make sure that the final output accurately reflects the brand's vision. 🤩
❗️TIP: This is totally optional, but once you go through the brief, we recommend creating a separate script and planning out your video shoot!
The overall mood of the video 🎭
Try to find the brand on social media - are they laid back? Maybe very energetic? Think of your presentation style that would suit their branding.
What are you going to say in the video 🗣
Check out provided mentions, educate yourself on the product, and personalize it so it feels more natural to you.
What are you going to do in the video 🤹
Check out provided scenes. Think about this product: for example, in which room would you use it? What other items you could possibly use with this product? Choose a location and vibe that is relevant.
This will help you to stay organized and focused + make editing a lot easier.
No matter if it's a creative mode or a very detailed brief - please always double-check if the brand left you any helpful info in the "Additional details" section. ✨
The brands can get super creative with the spelling of their brand name - make sure to look out for an audio message in the task brief. It would be a pity to have to re-film the whole video for such a silly mistake. 😮
❗️TIP: If there is nothing attached to the task brief, check out their social media or website for any clues. If that doesn't work out - just simply reach out to our Customer Support!
The video type, duration, and dimensions you have to deliver. 📐
❗️TIP: It's always a good idea to give yourself more negative space than needed. In this way, you can confidently crop your videos into any aspect ratio the brand needs.
Also - always have some backup B-Roll footage of the product (sitting on the table, in use, etc...). In case the brand asks for edits - there is a chance that you'll be able to use the footage you already have instead of re-filming it. 🎥🎞
Once the product is in your hands - you'll have 5 days to upload your content. ⏱
In this section, you can double-check what type of content is needed, and how much you'll get paid for it. 💰
