Should You Get a Professional Studio Video Shoot for Your Course Content?

Creating an eLearning program or a course takes a lot of time and commitment. You developed a Learning Transformation Statement and your courses’ curriculum and prepared your scripts and outlines – now, it’s time to film. If you ever tried to create an educational video at home, you know it can be a bit of a struggle, especially if you have no one else to help you with the equipment, setting up focus, and making sure your audio is “rolling.”

For this reason, along with many others, it is a good idea to consider using a professional studio for a video shoot. Keep reading for five reasons you should produce your content in a professional studio vs. doing it at home. 

5 Reasons Why You Should Get a Professional Studio Video Shoot

#1. Better Video Quality

In a professional studio, you have access to different backdrops, green screens, tools and equipment, and everything you need to produce the best video content for your courses. 

Additionally, studios don’t have to charge as much as someone who does a location shoot at your office or home. This is because travel time isn’t factored into the shoot. You won’t have fuel factored in, and everything you need is at the studio for video shoots, making it more convenient.

#2. Controlled and Comfortable Environment

Using a studio for a video shoot allows you to be comfortable while filming the video in a controllable environment. 

There is water and coffee and zero distractions in the studio. Location shoots often have foot traffic, loud sounds, and other people walking by making noise and creating distractions. This can make the entire shoot take longer, costing you money and time.

#3. Smooth Shooting Procedure

When you have a studio video shoot, you can get your content recorded quickly and without trouble. You aren’t busy adjusting the lighting in a house or outside environment. You don’t need to avoid noise or deal with other issues that crop up. This makes the entire process go quicker. 

With location shoots, the professional shows up early to assess what troubles they may have to deal with. Shooting in a professional environment not only gives you better content, but you also get it done quicker.

#4. Faster Production Time 

Because it is done in a professional studio, you can not only produce the content a lot quicker but also the team that is editing the content won’t have as much work to do. Noises won’t need to be canceled; lighting won’t need to be adjusted. 

This will save you time and money in producing your eLearning program or online course. Many professional studios are tailored to specific types of shoots as well. This helps make the videos better and gets the production done quicker.

#5. Snacks & Drinks

When you decide to create a professional studio video shoot, you’re working with a team who thinks ahead. This means the studio will have snacks, drinks, and other comforts to see you through the process, so you don’t have to stop throughout the process to get lunch. There will be an easy-to-access restroom as well as other things needed to make the shoot work well.


Using a studio for video shoots makes the entire process a smoother procedure from start to finish. Because of the above reasons and many others, this is one of the best ways to create premium eLearning videos.
