Use Live-Action Bumpers for Your Screencasts

Jeff Vincent


Top Hat Tuesday is our fancy weekly video series where someone from the Wistia team shares a useful bite-sized tip …  whilst wearing a top hat.

For product demos and other screencasts, an easy way to boost engagement is to include live-action shots of the person speaking. These live action bumpers quickly introduce the topic for the viewer, and also let viewers know a bit more about the person they are communicating with! Including live action bumpers is a great way to increase video engagement and content retention in one fell swoop.

For more tips on making more engaging support videos, watch Making Better Help Videos, added to the Learning Center last week:
