Leverage the full potential of today’s video to achieve your desired business outcomes.


Video has evolved immensely as a medium in recent years: On the one hand, tech evolutions in recording gear have opened up a whole new world of opportunities for much more lean, cost-effective and efficient high-quality video production. On the other hand, the ways in which we can share our videos with audiences —and have them interact with them— have exploded. In fact, so many new opportunities for using the medium have become available since the 2010s, that we can confidently say we have entered a whole new era in video communication.

Which is why, as a video producer, I put a lot of focus on first ensuring my clients have a video communication strategy in place that maxes out all of this potential in the best way possible. This entails making sure the content, production method, viewer interaction system, presentational context and the review and impact measurement approach all work in unison towards sparking the impulses in your audience needed to elicit the desired business impact – in the most efficient and cost-effective way available today.

Once the plan is in place I rely on my extensive hands-on experience in video and film making to facilitate and coordinate a lean and efficient video production, campaign execution and review phase. 

I mainly focus on video production for corporate communications. I am based in Berlin and generally operate in the EU.

With Group Videography®, I developed a special video service offering for the challenges of internal communications. See: groupvideography.com

Experience

Having spent more than a decade in various video- and communication roles, I rely on the combination of my expert grip on the medium with strong communication skills and business acumen to solve my clients’ challenges. My previous clients include Adobe, Allianz, Corning Inc., and the Tate Museum. I have worked for the BBC, Constantin Entertainment and the Discovery channel. Additionally, I have worked as a videographer ever since I left school. This work keeps me “in the trenches”, as it were, and allows me to communicate what is important to me, personally (see sebastianmesserer.com/videography).

Selected Testimonials:

Matthias Starke, Head of Adobe Consulting EMEA:
In 2017 we started to produce videos about our organization, the people, places, projects and other interesting topics. The goal was to strengthen our identity and to share our ‘Adobe life’ amongst our group and beyond. Sebastian has done a tremendous job, creating the concept, the common ‘language’ and of course the wonderful videos. I enjoyed working with Sebastian very much. His creativity, dedication, sensitivity and professionalism are outstanding. I would highly recommend him.
