Promotional film is an interaction tool that emerged after commercials for brands, but today its reputation has reached equal levels with commercials. For this reason, it is among the communication strategies that companies and brands use in recent times. According to experts, it seems that there will be no institutions or brands without a promotional film after a while. Because promotional films describe the work you do with your institution and brand, not only for customer-oriented target audiences, but also for other business partners and competitors in your sector. Considering the indisputable effect of visual expression on people, no matter how well-done work is explained with a beautiful and successful speech, it cannot leave an impression on people as much as a presentation poured into visuals, and an effective video can greatly lighten the burden on your presentation.

In promotional films, if there are speakers, play or dialogue in the scenario, we have two options; The first is to record a sound with a shot gone microphone during the promotional film. The second is to record the pilot sound with the camera's built-in sound recorder or an external sound recorder and then dub it in the studio environment when the editing and montage are finished. In fact, the latter is not a preferred situation when the dialogues are long. However, since it is known that promotional films are in the range of 0 - 60 seconds, it is preferred to take dialogue recordings in the studio environment after shooting, editing and montage. The sound shooting, which is not done during the promotional film, is then entered into the studio and dubbed. Of course, we are talking about the sound recording of actions such as gameplay, dialogue and interviews during the promotional film. If there are external voices such as voice overs, voice overs, narrator, vocals in the advertisement, they do not need to be taken during the promotional film. It can be recorded in a professional sound studio.
