Tips for Getting Video-Ready (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)
(This post accompanies Gab & Jam 93 Tips for Getting Video-Ready (for the D.I.Y. Rock Star)
This episode is a part of our Blog-vember 2019 trifecta of three posts a day—a video, a podcast, and a blog post. This year the focus is tips for the D.I.Y. Rock Star. We developed these methods through our own decades worth of experiences.
The BIG Take-Aways:
Here are our tips for getting ready to shoot a video. Not only do we need to come up with a topic—which sometimes requires research and consultation and notes—as well as thinking of what we will wear on-camera (to try to be impactful, fashionable and comfortable).
On top of all of that, but as D.I.Y. Rock Stars, we have to concern ourselves with the technical stuff (like the cameras, the sound, the music, etc.) for the camera and then that it translates into audio (for our accompanying podcast). What we mean is that sometimes things that work for video do not work well for audio (which is one reason that we have not done a formal studio tour; it makes for a wonderful video, but won’t work when transferred into podcast form). (Here's more actually making the video: http://bit.ly/Ep86BV2019blog12 )
Bruce’s main goal is to try to stay spontaneous and natural on-camera. He does quite an excellent job of not over-thinking what he will do and he just flows with whatever questions that I bat his way.
