How to Prepare your Video Shoot

Behind the Scenes – Video Prep

A quick “behind the scenes” video to help you prep for your next video shoot, plus common on-camera mistakes that can be a challenge to fix in the edit!

This was fun to shoot! Keeping it fun and light makes for a better onscreen experience (from a presenter perspective) and for a better filming day! If you are doing it all – remember to take production notes i.e. photograph your set, lighting set-up, camera placement/marks (I use clear packaging tape to mark off the carpet) take voice notes if you are too busy to write. What worked? What didn’t? Makeup, hair products used? Save your notes to Evernote for future reference, doing so will save you so much time for future preps.

Sweat the Small Stuff

Oh, the sweat marks lol! Men, in particular, you do need to watch out for this while under studio lights. Deo,  will only do so much! If you are working hard you will sweat so in this instance,  do “sweat the small stuff” when it comes to your wardrobe choices.

You’ll note that stage presenters often resort to wearing dark shirts/jackets for this very reason to combat stage lighting. Keep this in mind the next time you are shopping for your on-camera wardrobe.
