Video domination has made video production exciting. In 2019, emerging technologies will change the way we create videos. Last year, we saw some signs of where things are headed in the video production industry but that is not all. We should expect some surprises this year also. Here are some of the video production trends to expect in 2019:

Vertical Videos Will Become More Popular

Vertical Videos Will Become More Popular
In 2018, most of the video content (more than 75 percent) was viewed on a mobile device. And since most of the videos captured by smartphones are shot vertically, it seems that most brands will prefer vertical videos. Vertical videos are ideal for smartphones as they fill the phone screen hence reducing distractions or options for clicking elsewhere.

In addition, such videos allow for one point of focus per frame hence presenting an opportunity to maintain a viewer’s attention. Therefore, you should expect vertical videos to be part of video production in 2019.


Cinemagraphs is among the most talked about creative trends on the internet. It involves a combination of still photos with repetitive movement, often as a minimal part of the scene. Cinemagraphs fall in some middle ground between video and photo and can be a good way to grab audience attention even in oversaturated platforms like social media. Websites can also benefit from cinemagraphs as they can add minimal motion to static pages.

Long Form Content

More and more companies have started using long-form video content because of the benefits these videos offer. Most of the long form video content is about 10 or 30 minutes in length. Long-form content can be beneficial in many ways. First of all, it provides a capacity for storytelling hence offering an opportunity to emotionally connect with a target audience and help a brand establish a sense of trust with their customers.

Additionally, longer videos help in finding qualified leads. 10+ minute videos are more likely to convert for a business. The extra time spent by people interacting with longer videos naturally leads to an SEO boost.

When it comes to video production in 2019, more companies will try long-form content and it is more likely that we will see examples of how to plan and create long-form content. Consumption of longer videos has become increasingly popular and brands will try to explore this new territory.

More Accessibility

It is believed that more than 5 billion people will use smartphones in 2019. Access to low-cost video editing tools has enabled more people to produce videos. In fact, more videos are uploaded to the web in a month than what TV created in 3 decades.

Online video has become an important part of the internet experience and we are likely to see a growing need to make videos accessible to people with disabilities. Video players and app developers are trying as much as possible to add accessibility features to deal with some of the accessibility issues. Therefore, in 2019, we are more likely to see platforms focus on how they can make their video content more inclusive.
