Pitch Video – Creating Your Film Pitch
The Pitch Video: The Pinnacle of the Business Pitch
Pitch videos have increased in importance through the wider use of crowdfunding and general lack of time, what with the increasingly massive information overload in recent years. They are also used more and more as investment videos in the pitch design for traditional business models.
The professional film pitch is also a direct consequence of both increased technical requirements that investors have to founders trying to obtain traditional financing and due to inflation in alternative finance through venture capital, other equity financing and the ‘swarm financing’ mentioned earlier. These alternative sources of finance function by their own rules, typically, factors such as social proof / content sharing / virality play a role. This business model validation evidence can be reflected much better with the video pitch formats.
Types of Pitch Videos
The typical pitch video is usually very short, hence the term “elevator pitch video”. The storyboard is often based directly on the executive summary of the business plan. However, today there are also other types of investment videos that are several minutes long and very complex, bordering on promotion videos / video products.
The pitch-video format pitch deck screencasts in combination with moving 3D animation, aerial photographs, and sometimes a female speaker have become popular lately, particularly in traditional business models and real estate sector development. A professional-looking video is produced with relatively little effort, which leads the recipients through the details of the establishment step by step. Below you will have an opportunity to see a reference example in English, which was used for the crowdfunding campaign of a private VC network in the US.
In conjunction with a convincing business plan (see also our business plan advice), the manageable effort of a video pitch can make the difference between a positive and negative investor decision. Since the pitch deck can be derived from the business plan without much difficulty, it is the central element of this vector for founders with existing business plans and a logical step towards highly motivated talks with investors.
