Hey folks, check out this spotlight video where Casey speaks on his passion for filmmaking. Tim also gives his thoughts on the process that went into shooting Casey's video. Enjoy!
This week Tim's on vacation, so our spotlight series is on hold, and we don't have any behind-the-scenes to show you. So Jason wanted to talk about how to get better at video, and to encourage everyone to just go out there and start creating. See what Jason has to say about his journey through video, and the challenge we're issuing to everyone out there this week!
As we continue with our short and sweet video posts, Jason succinctly outlines some valuable pointers when it comes to writing scripts for video. It depends on the video, but writing a script is often a very important part of the pre-production process in video production. The script is what determines the message, the concept, the visuals... the entire video! In fact, in a standard A/V (audio/visual) style script, not only are the words written out that are meant to be spoken by the person on camera, but the visuals are also written out that go along with each and every spoken line. Watch the video to see what Jason has to say.
This week's blog post features a quick BTS video where we take you on a quick tour of an interview lighting setup. When it comes to lighting, it's all about being able to harness and control those light beams. Sometimes that means removing light if there's too much, and one way to do that is to use garbage bags! Once we covered the windows with the solid black bags, we had the room in almost complete darkness. We were then able to use our studio lights and add only as much light as we needed to get the look we were going for. We also make mention of a couple other pointers when it comes to shooting in general, so be sure to check out the video to get a glimpse of what goes into shooting.
Here at BiteSite, we have just launched a training course that teaches you how to record high quality, professional looking videos using just your cellphone.
You've surely recorded videos on your phone before, perhaps for a social media post or to share life experiences with friends. Well, if you've ever wondered how to take it a step further and shoot a video that stands out among the typical spontaneous phone recordings, look no further. In this video course we'll not only go over shooting techniques that would improve those quick video recordings, but also tips and tools that will enable you to shoot and edit together a video that tells a story, sells a product, promotes an event, or serves any other purpose your video may have.
This training should give you the ability to produce video content that is suitable to be placed on your business' website or social media, and generally will fit right in to the corporate video space. The goal of our course is to give you the foundation that allows you to create videos that look and sound great, no matter the type of video.
This is all possible because of the quality of the modern day phone camera. Even with a slightly outdated phone, you're likely able to record video that, given the right techniques and conditions, can be almost indistinguishable from videos shot on a more expensive dedicated camera such as a DSLR camera. Of course, there are also reasons you might choose to invest in a more expensive camera, namely the creative flexibility they offer, and yes, the added quality. The thing about phone cameras though, is that virtually everyone has one and they can indeed get the job done!
As a video company, we've definitely had many a person approach us with the question "Can I shoot my own videos, maybe with my phone?" Well, we're happy and very excited to provide that answer in the form of this course!
