Flip video tips

  1. 1. Aaron’s flip video tips • Settings are, well, set. • Get close for interviews. There is no external mic. • Steady the camera. • Move around. • But don’t zoom. Video will get very shaky! • Great for quick interviews. • Great for raw video. • Good for basic feature stories. • Good for reporter debriefs. • Good when you need to get something done fast. • Great for adding a diversity of content to your website. • Great for experimenting. Aaron’s basic video editing tips • You are telling a story visually. Have a beginning, middle and end. • Put clips in logical flow/sequences. You can’t magically get from one place to another. • Match the video to what you/your subjects are saying. • Shots shouldn’t be too short or too long. About 4 seconds is good. • Fine tune audio.
  2. 2. • You can do your narration right into the editing program (if it’s quiet). • Use transitions sparingly and avoid black frames and jump cuts.
