Top notch video content for DeFi

The world of finance – an ancient and complex industry offering its services to people since the emergence of the first monetary systems.

Since the birth of money, financial services were offered mostly by wealthier members of society. These services were very simple in its beginning, but from that; the world of finance evolved into a range of the most popular financial services of today, such as banking and insurance.

Almost everyone today uses some kind of financial services, but not everyone is fully satisfied with them. In other words, as in any industry or technology, there is much room for improvement.

In search of a safer, more open and efficient way of transacting with less limitations, a new generation of finance was born – Decentralised Finance, or DeFi.

 

How we define DeFi

Decentralised finance is a novel way of conducting financial operations and services by relying on the use of blockchain technology and its concepts, instead of centralised financial entities.

Some of the revolutionary aspects of DeFi can be seen in its ability to lower the entry requirements both for users of its services and to the providers.

This enables an influx of new services, better terms of usage and a stronger user adoption due to the benefits offered by its providers.

DeFi encompasses a wide range of services including the most popular ones – savings, loans, insurance and more.

These services are secured by blockchain smart contracts, making them trustless, secure and transparent.

Decentralised Finance is also very closely connected to the world of cryptocurrency, utilizing these digital currencies as means of transacting and opening the world of decentralised finance to the crypto space.

 

What is Video Marketing in DeFi?

DeFi Video Marketing is an efficient and easy method for showcasing, explaining and presenting DeFi projects to a wide audience through popular promotional channels.

Such projects are oftentimes intertwined with complex terminology, explanations and mechanics, but due to our in-depth understanding of these topics, our team is able to simplify and present this information clearly to your viewers.

Presenting DeFi projects through video content is a method which helps investors and blockchain enthusiasts save time while learning through short and visually appealing video content.

Why have it complex, when you can have it simple.

Here, at Slance, our videos are created with the aim to provide an easy viewing experience, relying on simple animation techniques and simplifying concepts to portray relevant information to its viewers.

We are driven by the intention to provide users with an easy way of researching, educating on and discovering exciting DeFi projects.

From the developers’ point of view, using DeFi Video Marketing helps developers communicate their goals, project features and key information to supporters, while at the same time helping the projects stand out in the market and successfully find its target audience.

 

How can you benefit by using DeFI Video Marketing?

 

The evolution of DeFi-specific marketing is moving as fast as the evolution of decentralised finance space itself.

Such a fast moving dynamic requires its participants to adapt their marketing methods quickly, if they do not want to be left behind by teams with extensive knowledge in up-to-date marketing.

This is where Video Marketing in DeFi comes to its rightful role.

Marketing a DeFi project through our video content makes for a great way to:

  • Showcase the project in an easy and appealing way
  • Educate users on the mechanics, use cases and other important aspects of a DeFi project
  • Explain how to use protocols, wallets or dApps with a simple video guide
  • Explain or educate viewers on any topic, product or a service required by our client
  • Explain the tokenomics of a project
  • Guide investors on where and how to buy the project’s tokens

 

 

What does the video production process look like?

 

The creation process for our videos is done through several steps, for which we have dedicated specific roles in the team, thus enabling the team members of each role to completely focus on delivering their part in the best way possible.

Even though working in separate production stages, the team members consult with each other in several stages during the production process, in order to work in a coordinated and efficient way.

The process of creating video content is divided into 3 different main parts:

 

 

Pre-production

In the beginning phase of the production process, a foundation is being created, and that is the video script.

 

The script serves as a basis for all the other parts of the production process, and as such is being created with check ups and a review by our client before proceeding with further production stages.

 

The pre-production phase includes:

  • Video goals and how it ties into the general marketing strategy
  • Budget
  • Storyboarding and scenes
  • Project timeline
  • Script writing
  • Production suite and animating resources

Production

The production phase is the most collaborative and interconnected part of production, as here the team members communicate together the most and review each other’s work multiple times.

These reviews are what we call “check-ups”, and they serve to ensure that the end product is made in a coordinated and efficient way, which ultimately fulfills the client’s requirements.

These check moments are:

  • Script creation
    • Based on our findings in the exploration phase, the client now has the chance to double-check if everything is present and make suggestions. This is usually done together with a few team members to ensure the script is 100% correct.
  • Style guide approval
  • First demo approval
  • Finalized video file approval

If you have specific visions, ideas, or visuals that you want to be included in the final product, be sure that you have clearly communicated that with your producer before the end of the production phase.

Post production

 

Following the finalisation of the production phase, our team can begin focusing on editing and processing the details of your video into a final product.

During the post-production phase, your video production team will begin the process to organize the details and edit the actual video.

The production phase includes:

  • Video editing
  • Reviews/approvals
  • Final Delivery

Prior to starting, and during the production process, we communicate the requirements with our clients clearly and consult with them along the way.

Even though the clients usually have their vision of how the end product should look, we still offer our clients a chance to relax after communicating their vision and aim, and let our team work on production with its magic.

We always strive to take each task professionally in order to deliver the highest service quality, and therefore have a satisfied clientele behind us.

FAQ 💯

What is included in the price?

All pricing includes:

  • One feedback round per production phase (1x script, 1x storyboard, 1x full length)
  • No royalties, no watermarks, no copyright
  • Variations (for designs)
  • High end quality, comparable to showreel productions
  • Visual style in line with brand guidelines
Why wouldn't we hire in-house?

Fair question!

Our reasoning is that currently the cost of hiring one in-house videographer / animator / designer far exceeds our pricing. This is because of scarce availability in the blockchain space, as well as having to offer extra benefits on top of a competitive salary. And the recruitment process can be time consuming that comes with a work in period.

Additional to a videographer / animator, you'll need a voice artist, designer and script writer for full video productions. These are all roles we have readily available on our in-house team. 

Working with us, you are fully unburdoned for the entire video production proces. From A-Z, all stages are handled by us and you'll only have to sign off on the final video result you are satisfied with.

Are videos or designs created by AI?

No. We do not use any AI software to help generate designs, logos, scenes, storyboards, scripts or voice over at any step in the production process.

The videos and designs we produce for you are 100% made by our in-house team of illustrators, designers and writers. Every step in the process is hand-done by us before its good to go to the next phase. Any video we deliver is of the highest quality and human-made.

Note; we are experimenting with AI and how it can benefit the overal video production process. So far we've had succes with ideation / inspiration and script writing. However, in it's current state, AI cannot replace the creativity needed for video productions that humans provide.

What are additional options per video?

We offer the following options for every video production:

  • Unlimited revisions / feedback / refinement at $65 / hour
  • Export transitions / effects / elements into graphic files: $25
  • Separate scenes into social shorts: +$25 / scene
  • Subtitles (hardcoded): +$95 per language
  • 4k production + export (future proof): +$250
  • Purchase source file: 0.75% total cost
  • Thumbnail: +$35
What if a project does not match expectations?

Not to worry, we keep designing and refining until you are 100% satisfied with the result.

Can we purchase source files?

Yes, we offer the purchase of source files at an extra charge, to be decided per video project.

How is your typical workflow?

Every project starts with a discovery call in which requirements and wishes are discussed. Based on your input we draft a delivery timeline and after an upfront payment we kickstart the project by writing the script.

After the script is approved we move onto to voice over production.

When the voice over is done we design the storyboards + a short demo.

Once the demo is approved we continue with the full length production, which also has a feedback + refinement stage after its completed.

Once the video is approved by you we share the final video file.

In short, the workflow is as follows:

  1. Discovery call
  2. Script writing
  3. Voice acting
  4. Storyboards + demo
  5. Full length video + feedback
  6. Finalized video
Do you offer discounts?

Our prices are already exceptionally competitive, and we therefore do not offer discounts. We do however offer perks that come with higher volume orders such as set delivery times, recurring timelots and discounted freedback prices.

How is payment handled?

We offer invoices to be paid via bank transfer or crypto transfer (bep20/erc20) in any stablecoin currency.
