Often, a keynote address is an event’s most significant and impactful occasion. The value of such speeches is hard to understate: their purpose is to summarize, inspire and captivate. With this in mind, the importance of keynote speeches is clear. As such, a professionally recorded and edited video of these such speeches is necessary to properly document speeches of special consequence.

When it comes to professional videography, the concept of “proper documentation” should be made clear. Yes: it’s true that these days anyone with a phone can take a video of a speech, but these kinds of videos—amateur videos included—are unable to capture keynote speeches in an appropriate manner. Poor documentation of a noteworthy speech or presentation is a misfortune which can easily be avoided with the utilization of professional speech videography.

Professional keynote speaker video producers have everything necessary to expertly capture your event’s important speeches and presentations. Our videography team utilizes a variety of professional-grade video cameras, lenses, recording devices, general equipment ,and video editing software to produce videos of the highest possible quality. Granted, this quality equipment can only produce amazing videos when it is in the hands of experts: that’s where our videography team comes in.

Chicago Corporate Photography and Video’s videographers have been recording keynote addresses and event speeches for years and we learn a bit more with every job. With so much professional experience, there is no question that our video producers are experts in their field.

When recording a keynote address or a related speech, there are a great deal of things for a videographer to be mindful of. One good example is timing. The sort of speeches that require professional videographers are often made at events with a lot of moving parts. This means that videographers must be heads-up, punctual and observant. After all, speeches are only made once, so the speech must be recorded properly on the first try. Professional speech videographers should be very familiar with the schedule of an event to ensure that they hit their mark.

Additionally, a professional videographer should be familiar with things like stage lighting and audio systems. A good way to know that you’re dealing with an experienced videographer is to see whether they ask about these sorts of things. After all, it is difficult to effectively film a speaker if they are under lighting conditions which the videographer didn’t suspect. As for audio, it is common for videographers to record speech audio through an event’s audio or PA system, so videographers should be familiar with this aspect of an event before shooting begins.


After deciding to hire the services of professional videographers to record a keynote speaker, one should consider their intended usage for the video. Most speech videos are full-length, and feature occasional shots of the audience in addition to shots of the speaker. These videos have a variety of purposes ranging from archival to promotional. Another video which clients often request is an edited down video of the speech. These videos are typically short and feature only the essential talking points. Such videos are used to accompany event summaries and are also shared on social media.

Having a specific video type in mind before the day of a speech or keynote presentation benefits all parties involved. Communicating a video’s intended usage keeps costs down because the videographers are able to focus solely what is necessary to produce the final video. Additionally, this sort of communication allows videographers to capture the most appropriate video and audio for the final cut: contributing to an all-around better keynote speaker video.
