Introducing Video Templates: Powered by Storyteq
Video production, editing, and rollout is about to get a whole lot faster (and easier) thanks to an exciting new templating feature in Frontify.
Are your brand and design teams tired of losing time and effort creating what seems like the same videos from scratch, over and over again? And sure, maybe there are small tweaks catering to different channels, regions, or departments, but the foundation remains the same?
We hear you – in fact, we’ve been there – but now, you can cut out this tedious and repetitive process, thanks to the new Video Templates solution in Frontify, powered by Storyteq, a creative automation platform for video and banner creation.
This seamless integration of Storyteq within the Frontify platform allows Frontify Enterprise customers to scale the creation of high-quality video templates, by enabling their end-users to easily modify video templates in seconds, without any design or video production skills (while always ensuring they’re on-brand). Users can leverage all the images, icons, colors, and fonts living on the Frontify brand platform directly in branded video templates – then, publish for individual use or speedy distribution to a preferred channel.
So, Why Video Templates?
It should come as no surprise that we have an open ear to what our customers are saying. Our product team and our product roadmap are driven by our customers’ needs, market opportunities, and our vision for Frontify at large. The short story here is that the integration is a timely response to all of the above. Here are a few thoughts from some of you:
Creating videos is expensive, and eats up more resources than available to meet video generation demand.
Creating on-brand videos involves a detailed process with many bottlenecks that limits the creative freedom of our teams while slowing down your time-to-market.
The integration directly addresses pain points for our users and can immediately serve to make their lives, and the video production process, easier. Our Senior Product Manager, Stephanie Morales, puts it nicely, saying:
“Our Video Templates solution can extend the shelflife value of our customers’ video assets and help their teams scale the production of frequently used assets, by putting the customization in the hands of their end-users. Now, they’ll gain control of all their assets by ensuring each element is on-brand, letting their creative teams focus on creating, and enabling their marketing, sales, and other teams to get the assets they need to market, as quickly as possible.”
