The Educator

Here are a few things you want to know about your Video Creator Type LFNC, The Educator:

  • LFNC is an acronym for Long Form (LF) and On Camera (NC)

  • Long form means videos longer than 5 minutes

  • On camera means you prefer being the ‘talking head’ or be on camera

  • Educators like to inform, review, share processes and either go wide or deep with the details In doing so, more recording is needed to have more footage for editing and B-Roll

Characteristics of an Educator might be:​​

  1. Driven: Implement your vision of what's best for your community. You go to great lengths to make sure you're a step ahead of them so you can continue to serve them on their journey regardless of where they are.
     

  2. Organized: You thrive on creating a plan, keeping others accountability and adhering to deadlines. You're methodical in how you process information and provide the same structure to your community through materials provided. 
     

  3. Catalyst: You act as a catalyst for human growth because of your ability to see potential in others. Staying true to your values and vision, you're passionate about the possibilities in others and leverage that passion to persuade others to your ideas.

What IS a 'Long Form' video?

  • Long form video is what you see on YouTube, LinkedIn and Facebook. 'Long' videos are videos longer than 8 minutes where ad placement is supported mid-video.

  • These videos are landscape with dimensions that are wider than tall, 1920 x 1080 using YouTube dimensions.

  • Since the focus of long-form videos is on the duration, dimensions and platforms, the people can be on-camera or off-camera. The Educator LFNC is on-camera. 

  • This video might require a lot of raw footage with different scenes, backgrounds and transitions, requiring more editing.

  • You enjoy the creation process from brainstorming ideas, researching your topic and recording but insist on letting someone else do the tedious task of editing.

  • You value time talking with your community and  educating them. You aren't as concerned about the metrics or how your video performs as long as it connects with your community and inspires them to take action.

  • At the end of the day you know the value video has in helping your brand stand out AND gives you more opportunities to engage with your community on a deeper level

  • STAT:  76% of consumers purchase a product or service after watching a video

  • You've experienced the power of being on camera. Being the face of your brand is an opportunity to connect with your ideal clients faster and easier which will lead them to taking the journey with you because you've connected with them on a deeper, more intimate level - developing the know, like and trust bond more effectively.
