  • Regardless of your resources for creating video there are some strategies and techniques that will make a great videoProof of concept
  • Good video starts before the camera is turned on.Preproduction is arguably the most important part of video
  • Read it out loudLess is more…better!If it is steps based walk through the steps
  • No need to be an artist Use photos then describe the action Create a template in Word or PowerPoint
  • SME’s and stakeholder are not always the best choicePublicity Release FormAlways keep your eyes out for potential talentYou may want to speak with them about future availability in case of reshoot of video that will match this one
  • There are a lot of options for camerasSome key features are external microphone inputFirewireTryPod
  • Don’t forget Youtube style Sometimes I go for that style intestinallyPaula Lantini oops blinking record lightLocation Studio , conference room
  • Avoid the zoom zoom
  • Use a lavaliere microphone preferably wirelessI you can afford or have access to a shotgun or boom microphone works great especially for more than one actor or if you need to pick ambient soundMonitor your sound in headphonesFor some video you may want to record narration over the top of your video Also some headset with build in microphones work great that’s what I use when doing voiceovers
  • Lighting is key to getting a good quality imageOne of the key differences between an expensive camera and a inexpensive one is their ability to adjust and take in light its all in the lens
  • I recommend a three point lighting techniqueThere are inexpensive kits available – B& HLimit Your Light SourcesWork lights will do in a pinchreflector sadjust your white balance accordingly
  • Be ready for anythingWater and snacks if long shoot.If working on location create a Portable Kit Gig bag – magiverGaff tape or painters tape – not stickFirst aid tape ToolsCough drops
  • Adobe Premiere Pro Adobe Creative Suite 4 Production PremiumAdobe Premiere Elements 7 about $150Windows Movie Maker Free Imovie freeQuicktime – Pro $30http://www.kdenlive.org/ open source editor
  • TO make your videos look more professional you could pay someone to produce the motion graphicsThis also will give you project a consisting look and feel Titles and credits. You might want to add a title at the beginning of your movie that tells people a little bit about your movie, such as when, where, and what happened. And you can add credits at the end of your movie to tell the world who created and starred in it (just like you see in movie theaters and on DVDs). For more information about adding titles and credits to your movie, see Add movie titles and credits.Transitions. To make your movie look nice when one video or picture ends and another begins to play, add transitions between pictures, videos, and titles on the storyboard. There are more than sixty different transitions in Windows Movie Maker to choose from, so play around and use the transitions that look nice to you.Effects. Finally, you might want to add some special effects to videos and pictures on the storyboard that’ll give your movie the appearance you want. For example, add one of the Film Age effects make it look like an old-time movie. For more information about using transitions and effects in Windows Movie Maker, see Add transitions and effects to pictures and video.
