Filming outside has it’s Challenges..Poor Audio Public Enemy # 1
I love to do video book reviews and host the reviews online. I feel that it is a great form of social video engagement, if your video is open to customer participation. Amazon.com book reviews are a perfect example of this. They allow interaction with readers and viewers to comment, contribute and share their thoughts. It is a true on-going video engagement case study.
A few days ago I was shooting a book review outside and then the fun started.
Video Engagement tip 1 Know your environment and adjust to weather conditions
Video Engagement tip 2 Have a stable tripod
Video Engagement tip 3…Sound quality background sound, prepare for noise issues
Lessons learned from this encounter if you are filming before a thunderstorm hits be prepared duh.. A strong wind can cause havoc, survey your filming surrounding and be on the lookout for jet planes flying by. Jet Planes can bring da noise..essentially Public Enemy Number One. If you didn’t get that last statement see Flavor Flav…hype man for the Rap Group Public Enemy.
Shooting video outside can be fun and evoke curiosity. Coming soon my video book review will be on the topic or resume writing and personal branding strategy for today’s competitive job market. The book is titled “Resume Branding 101 Strategies for Getting Noticed in 10 Seconds or Less by author Kim Carswell. From the video, I made an effort to review Kim’s book during less than ideal conditions and that is why we have pre-production.
