“Before Starting on a B2B video project," says Greg Johnson, BrightTALK Studios Managing Producer, you need to be able to answer the question "Why can’t this just be an email?." Video production is expensive and time-consuming. If you need to send a message, an email will do - and you’ll save yourself a lot of time and money. However, if you need to tell your story, then you need video and there is a lot to know about B2B video production.”

Now, for the first time, we’re taking you behind the scenes with The Studio, a content series that pulls back the curtain on B2B video production in the marketing world. We’ve asked the team what they wish clients understood before starting a video project. “Know your story (a topic is not a story),” and “choose the right speaker (it’s not what you think it is),” are only a couple of the topics we’ll discuss as we build the top five things all marketers should understand before starting a video project.

Join Jeff Kunken and Nyekha Bennett as they host teammates Greg Johnson and Steve Madeja for a lively debate. And if you’ve ever embarked on a B2B video project, we’d love to hear your thoughts!
