YouTube Ads Video Production

As one of the most popular and visited websites in the world, with over 2 billion logged-in users visiting the platform each month, creating video ads to be shown on YouTube is an option for promoting your product and expanding brand awareness.

Another one of the benefits of advertising on YouTube is the ability to target your ads to specific audiences, based on factors such as age, gender, location, and interests. This allows you to reach people who are most likely to be interested in your product or service.

However, despite this potentially huge audience, it is important to create an engaging, high-quality ad that clearly communicates the value of your product or service to the viewer. The first five seconds of the video are especially crucial, in which the viewer must be pulled in to watch the rest of the ad or else they’ll simply skip it to get to their intended video. Also, depending on the format in which you choose to showcase your video, it would also be helpful to not have the ad be too reliant on sound as it might play on mute by default. Overall, YouTube advertising can be a powerful tool for businesses to promote their brand and drive sales.

Much like an actual horror film, the commercial for the 9th Halloween Horror Night at Universal Singapore uses various techniques to create an eerie and suspenseful atmosphere to grab viewers’ interest and give them a taste of what to expect for the event.

The lighting in particular, sets the tone for the entire video and the event itself, with its use of dim, lowkey lighting, and colored lights adding to the horror and suspense of the video.

Deodorant YouTube Ad

This commercial, advertising a body wash, involves a man delivering a series of monologues at a fast pace explaining to the viewer why they should use their product with exaggerated visuals to match the equally exaggerated claims of the video, all done in a single take.

What makes this Old Spice commercial such an engaging advertisement is its use of fast-paced editing, featuring a series of rapid-fire cuts that jump from scene to scene which helps to keep viewers engaged, and clever transition effects that help to tie the different scenes together, such as when the camera zooms in on the actor when he is on a boat and zooms out later to show him at a different location, creating a seamless transition between the two. Another highlight of the commercial is its use of humor, with the above-mentioned over-the-top effects and in general making fun of the stereotypical idea of what it means to be a “man.”

Overall, the creative techniques used in the video result in an alluring and memorable advertisement that makes people talk about, share and no doubt interested in the product they are selling.

Sporting Camera YouTube Ad

GoPro would often utilize real videos of people performing their jobs or other activities while using their cameras as commercials for their products, and for their ‘Be a Hero’ marketing campaign, they used actual footage of a firefighter rescuing a kitten from a house fire.

Like many official GoPro videos, it is from a first person perspective. This point of view helps to create a sense of immersion for the viewer, making them feel like they are experiencing the rescue firsthand. The video also features several slow-motion shots, which helps to emphasize the drama and creates a sense of tension and anticipation, as the viewer waits to see whether the fireman will be able to rescue the kitten. The emotional music that plays after the fireman finds the kitten also makes the video engaging as it creates a sense of connection between the viewer and the fireman, and heightens the emotional impact of the commercial.

The advertisement overall is an uplifting story that pulls at the heartstrings of the viewer and while the GoPro product itself is never advertised in the video, the viewer will likely associate it with the video anytime they remember or bring it up.

Smartphone Commercial with Humour

The video’s concept of mocking Apple and the iPhone X is the kind of thing that generates a lot of attention and buzz on social media. It also allows Samsung to differentiate itself from Apple while simultaneously showcasing the strengths of its own product. The video’s story starting from 2007, the year the first IPhone was released, and ending at the present helps to highlight the IPhones lack of features and lower functionality compared to the Galaxy phones throughout the years.

By highlighting the various qualities of the Samsung Galaxy phones and contrasting them with the iPhones limitations, the ad promotes the value of the Galaxy phones and informs the audience that they will always be one step ahead of Apple in terms of innovation for their phones.

Food Delivery Business Video

This first thing that will likely catch people’s attention in regards to the commercial is the use of a stop-motion style of filmmaking and having various different foods as office workers, which itself is a play on the slogan “Food that works for you” shown at the end of the video, making the video stand out and more likely to be engaging.

The high key lighting and multiple close-up shots of the food throughout the video also helps to highlight the details and textures of the dishes. This approach helps to make the food look even more delicious and enticing to the viewer.


In summary, creating a YouTube ad requires not only a strong understanding of your target audience but also a strong call to action or hook that will get them to watch your video (i.e. rescuing a kitten from a house, taking jabs at your competitor, etc.).

The ad also has to communicate the value of your product or service so that the viewer takes action, whether that’s visiting your website, making a purchase, or subscribing to your channel.
