How do you create interactive video?

An interactive video company normally develop interactive videos in two parts. The content itself, so this may be in the form of a live action video, animated video or simple animated slide format or a mixture. This part of the content would normally contain the learning points, educational material or marketing content for the audience to engage with.

The second part of the interactive video are the interactive elements required where the user has clickable tasks and actions as a result of watching the video. For example these may be things like hotspots where the user clicks in a certain area of the video. It might include questions where the user has to select an answer in a multiple choice format or make a decision on what the next step will be in the process. These elements are created within a specific 3rd party software platform and then exported normally in an embed code to be accessed elsewhere.

How do you use interactive video for your marketing?

Interactive video is an incredibly innovative tool for marketing. In a digital world, businesses are looking to find new and inventive ways to revolutionise their digital marketing. Interactive video production can offer a new way to promote your brand. For example, an e-brochure can be designed using an interactive video, and will allow your customer to decide what they want to know more about. They can click on a number of options that route through a series of questions, links, videos etc to present them with different outcomes. This interactive layer offers another form of engagement with your audience, giving them the control to make choices and decisions about what they want to see. This is empowering for companies who want to guide customers through a series of short questions, ultimately presenting them with the best products or outcomes.

How do you access interactive video?

Once the video is created it is normally hosted on a landing page where the embed code is placed. For companies this might be an area on their website or intranet that is accessed by staff only. Some companies may have their own learning management system that can act as the host for the content and interactive questions in a more basic format. 3rd party hosting platforms normally give more options for the interactive video and this can be managed by your video content provider.

Elements of Interactive Video

  • Hotspots: clickable buttons or areas that take you to another segment of the video or revel something new for you to see in the same frame or scene.
  • 360 views: the functionality for your audience to drag the screen within a video frame to get a 360 degree experience.
  • Branches: these give your audience the opportunity to choose the way they view the video, interacting with different options that can give them a totally unique view of the content.
  • Data inputs: form fields in which your audience can enter their own information for you to view, such as their name and contact details for example.
  • Quizzes: perfect for virtual training courses, these combine a mix of buttons and branching paths to create a quiz in which your audience can be assessed on certain topics.

Frequently Asked Questions

In short, no, your interactive video can be as long or short as you want. Different types of videos will need to be different lengths, and this will be reflected in your quote.

The pre-production stage is where the video agency helps you plan and carve the identity of your video with storyboards, scripts and planning with yourselves. The production is the actual filming of your story, and post-production is the editing of footage to finish off your video to its finest potential. We then create the interactive element with our interactive video software and upload to a landing page for you.

There is no limitation for the number of interactive elements to be added to your interactive video. You may choose any number of elements you need to achieve your overall goals.

It is important to keep in mind that too many interactive elements overload the video, distract the viewer and can slow down the performance of the video.
