WHAT MAKES GOOD VIDEO   Leave a comment

Making Video


During a recent seminar on video production by Steve Finch it occurs to me that these elements apply to both the production and judging of what makes a good video program for the viewer.

With more and more outdoors men and women making their own videos for family and friends, making them interesting becomes more important.

Basically, to be interesting, the video (or program) needs an effective message and needs to stay on message. It needs scripting out and not just allowed to ramble. The message should be simple and have great music to be entertaining.

The basic elements of a great video are a great story, education, motivation, and stimulate to action.

In making the program, move the camera and use lighting and audio as well as visual techniques. Once back in the office, combine short (3-5 second) raw images with high energy music. There is a lot of free music available on line as well as video editing programs.
