If the average video producer made a list of the key elements for a great project, the list would probably start with capturing great images, and hopefully include getting good audio, having great content, and maybe even getting good performances from talent. However, you're probably not likely to find solid supporting graphics on that list. So to give these key graphics their due respect, here are 5 tips to improve your supporting graphics.
1. Use Them!
Whether it's a local commercial, web tutorial, wedding, or just your family video, supporting graphics can help provide a context for your video, and help reinforce the concept or message you're trying to get across to your viewer. From simple titles over a black background, to a lower third title, and even complex motion graphics, combining text, images, and creativity can raise the production value of your project.
