Top Tips : 6 Video Production Tips

We film, edit and produce a whole heap of videos to I thought I would share my top 6 tips for video production. 

  1. Planning is key - and likely to take most of time. It pays to get everything locked down at this stage before you start filming - its easier and cheaper to re-write the script now than to have to re-filming it all later.
  2. Use a tripod - unless you want the 'shaky look' to your video,  always use a tripod.  Later you can add additional support to your equipment kit like steadicams and sliders.
  3. Don't forget the audio - avoid using the on-board microphone try and get the mic in as close as possible to the talent.  Wireless lavier mic work the best but are expensive - a wired version will do.
  4. Lighting is important - if you dont have any lights think about position the talent so that the natural light falls on them from a window or buy and inexpensive reflector to direct a bit of light on the talents face.
  5. Use a teleprompter to engage your audience - your talent might be a natural in from of the camera - but most of the time this won't be the case - a teleprompter will allow the talent to look directly at the camera whilst reading the script.
  6. Remember the b-Roll - this is the extra relevant footage which is captured and can be included in the final edit - if used correctly it can help engage the audience and adds extra interest to the video.

That's my top tips for video production, but if you don't want to do it yourself but still want your a video produced contact Serco Video and Photography.
