Here are the most common hiccups that project managers can face when running a Seenit project and our advice on what to do to overcome them!
1. Hang on… who’s going to film?
If you’re wondering who will be your contributors, the answer should be: Those who are closest to the story. See this article for more advice on finding the right people.
2. I’m ready to call out to the crowd! But how?
If you’re reaching out to a big crowd, consider trying the two-step process.
First do a wide call-out, on your social media channels for example, to identify who is actively interested in participating. Once you’ve narrowed this down, send them the actual invite and instructions to get involved. The most important thing is to make people excited about getting involved.
And remember, as long as you have people who are involved and passionate, quantity is not the most important thing.
3. Ok, they’re in. Now how do I get them to shoot?
Has it been a day or two and there’s little to no activity in your project? There could be a variety of reasons that your contributors aren’t submitting.
4. How many clips do I need to make a good video?
There’s no exact formula for a good video, but suffice it to say - you can make something fantastic with as little as 20 clips! Again, it’s quality that you should be looking out for, not quantity.
5. All done, now what?
Now you get to share what’s been created! Definitely share it with your contributors and give them a big thank you. If you’re sharing it out to the public, don’t forget to encourage others to share it as well!
