Mental Wellbeing Videos Around Singapore
Please Note: Some videos referenced in this blog article are not produced by Vivid Snaps. The following videos are sourced from publicly available websites, such as YouTube.
Interview Overlay With Pictures Video
Knowing the importance of healthy mental wellbeing among its employees given especially the stressful nature of their work, Tan Tock Seng Hospital created a TTSH Staff Well-Being Response Team in 2020. The team takes care of not only the physical wellbeing of the staff but also creates a supportive environment where staff can share positive notes with one another. The video features the head of the well-being committee speaking to the audience about the various platforms and activities the Response Team are involved in, intercut with pictures of staff and patients.
A straightforward video that is simple but informative, it packs all the information needed to understand the strong mental support staff and patients at Tan Tock Seng Hospital receive. Screenshots of social media posts are used aptly in this video as well to carry the message through. As shown in this example, besides videography, other visual mediums can be used as well to bring home your message. As long as the visuals complement the story, there are no hard and fast rules on how a video production should look like.
Interviewing Several Subjects On The Same Topic
Temasek Foundation teamed up with the Institute of Mental Health and came up with a video featuring young people in Singapore answering questions about mental health and wellbeing today. Choosing the location to conduct your interviews is crucial as it not only affects the look and sound of your video, but can also alter the vibe and tone of the video as well. When your topic is personal and might be intimate to some, choosing to interview your subjects in a studio creates a comfortable private space which could allow them to open up more to you. You get more control of the environment as well, and in this case the video’s background was lit up aesthetically with pink and blue lighting, creating almost a dreamy backdrop. As the interviewees read out common expressions about mental health, they allow themselves to be introspective and share their thoughts on them. The various personalities and characters on screen then reveal at the end of the video that every single one of them have gone through or are going through mental health struggles, and urge viewers to reach out for help if they have something to share as well. The video is relatable and the message is strong!
Therapy Session Video
In line with Mental Health Day, The Smart Local created an episode of Singaporeans Try, where Singaporeans speak candidly with a therapist about their mental health struggles. We are first introduced to each individual before they meet the therapist and open up about their experiences with anxiety, depression, and other challenges they face. The therapist listens empathetically and provides support, offering advice and guidance on how to cope with their struggles. By sharing their stories, the individuals hope to encourage others to prioritise their mental wellbeing and seek support when needed. Viewers can relate to the individuals and their stories better as well, and get better at supporting each other at work and home. Having a therapist in the video acts as a voice of reasoning, understanding and wisdom. It helps to create credibility for the video and makes it more engaging for the audience. The video is a powerful reminder that mental health is just as important as physical health, and that it is okay to ask for help.
Mental Wellbeing Video Production Around the World
Mental Health Awareness Campaign
The video by Suria KLCC is a mental health awareness campaign that shines a light on the struggles of those living with anxiety, depression and other disorders. The video features Malaysians as they navigate their daily lives, with their depressive thoughts titled over the video. The second part of the video however chimes a different tune from the first – it is more supportive and hopeful, that many of us are trying to cope with mental health struggles and honestly it is ok to talk about it. There is always power in community. The emotional cello music used in the background of the video helps in bringing out feelings of hopelessness and isolation, which could have a longer lasting effect on the audience.
Corporate Content with Mental Health as Focus
Dove is a champion when it comes to empowering people’s self-esteem and confidence. The short film in reverse featuring a girl putting on thick amounts of makeup and digital edits before posting the picture up on Instagram. Dove’s video highlights the pressure young girls face today to present a perfect image of themselves on social media. The Dove Self-Esteem Project aims to reverse the damage caused by this kind of pressure and celebrate real beauty. The short film shot in reverse is captivating and memorable to watch, with its storyline so common and relatable worldwide. The lack of dialogues helps the video travel multi-culturally and across countries with ease. The video serves as a powerful reminder of the impact social media can have on our mental health and the need for greater awareness and support for people facing these pressures.
Supporting Mental Health Awareness As a Company
Neinstein Personal Injury Lawyers family produced a video in support of mental health awareness, in conjunction with the efforts of the Put Up Your Dukes Foundation, an organisation started by a member of the film. The video showcases individuals of different ages and backgrounds speaking into the camera reading lines one after the other, sharing their experiences with mental health struggles. The video is coloured in almost greyscale, highlighting the severity and seriousness of the issue. Close-ups of the interviewees are used as well with deep depth of field in the background, drawing all your attention to the interviewees’ faces. The video is a moving tribute to those who are fighting to overcome their mental health struggles, and it highlights the importance of seeking help and breaking the stigma surrounding mental health.
Mental Health at Workplace
The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is Canada’s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital, as well as one of the world’s leading research centres in the area of addiction and mental health. The CAMH workplace mental health video features interviews with various members in the company sharing how CAMH can partner with organisations to lead a conversation about mental health. The video features interviews and B-rolls all intercut together. The interviews are done using two cameras on the subject, and the second camera featuring the closer-up shot of the subject is usually on a slider to create movement and thus more cinematic shots. The video showcases the impact that a supportive workplace can have on the mental health of employees, and it highlights the benefits of creating a culture of openness and support when it comes to mental health.
What Can I Do Mental Health Video At Workplace
The Campaign for Disability Workplace Employment video features four individuals sharing their perspectives on promoting workplace wellbeing. The CEO, manager, co-worker, and person who identifies as having a mental health condition each share what they can do to create a supportive and inclusive workplace environment. The video is energetic and there is always movements in the shot – even the interviews are never static – there are usually done on a gimbal or a slider which creates this constant smooth video flow that does not break the attention of the viewers. The energetic music chosen in the background helps to keep the video lighthearted and engaging, in contrast to the more serious videos we have seen in above examples.
In conclusion, mental wellbeing videos have become increasingly popular as a means of promoting mental health and self-care. Many companies have jumped onto the bandwagon and are emphasising on the importance of mental health in their company culture. The videos cover a wide range of topics and style, from sitting down with a therapist to a short film with a power message. Some videos are more serious and informative while some lean towards lightheartedness and playfulness. It all depends on who your target audience is and what you’d like them to feel after watching the video.
