When telling a story through video, know your audience

An effective video engages the viewer to take action. Your business may have an amazing product or service to offer, but if you don’t communicate it to the right viewers, then you will not get the reaction you want. Don’t focus on the idea of simply relaying your story, but pay close attention to what is appealing to your select audience, to your customers. What you present in your video should be essential to them.

And to incentivize filmmakers across the nation, the prize money is pretty amazing: $1 million.To make an advert for Doritos is a big deal. The tortilla chips have been produced since 1964 and are sold in many countries. At times it has been a best selling snack, beating everything from cookies, cakes and candies.
