Feel like you're banging your head against the wall in video communications? Rocky Walls shares a few practical smartphone video production tips. Discover how to make video less intimidating and complicated -- and a lot more rewarding -- at #IABCHRCONF iabcheritageconference.com
In less than two months I'll be sharing my most popular workshop-style presentation with IABC Heritage Region Conference attendees.
Attendees really enjoy the practical smartphone video tips, and even though I have 19 of them that I regularly share, I'm wondering if there are any of your favorites that aren't on my list. I won't give them all away now, but here are some examples...
1) Define Purpose - ensuring your video has a clear purpose, one that can be communicated in a single sentence, will keep everyone involved on track.
2) Assemble Your Crew - making sure you have the right number of people filling the right roles, not too few and not too many, will keep the video shoot running smoothly.
3) Befriend B-Roll - everyone dreads the three-minute "talking head" video, so including what we call B-Roll, or the extra visuals that can cut away from an interviewee, help tell the story and engage the viewer.
What are your favorite smartphone video tips? Maybe one of yours should be included in my list for the IABC Heritage Region Conference this October.
