Before and after you film
How to Capture the Moments, Send Your Footage, and Prices
1. FILM HORIZONTALLY
Vertical video doesn’t look good on TVs or computers. Think of television news where vertical cell phone video appears as a strip down the middle of the screen. Objects are also smaller when they have to be modified from a phone to fit a regular screen.
2. QUICK GRAB SHOTS
Grab quick establishing shots along the way of signs and objects and scenery that you observe to help fill out the video. Try to get both wide shots and close up (zoomed in) shots. This will add interest.
3. ENVIRONMENTAL NOISE
Pay attention to the noise in your environment when people are talking to the camera. Of course, we can’t always control surroundings, but it may be possible to wait for a truck to pass by, turn off the TV or radio in the background, or step a few feet away from our chatty friends.
4. HAVE FUN!
And don’t forget. Be silly, creative, or serious. We want your personality to shine.
