Web Video Production to Your Liking

Recently in July I was asked to shoot a video piece by a client I have know for quite a few years now. We first met up when she was involved in marketing with a firm in London. During that time I shot stills at events that were for the English rugby squad and various other promotions that were organised by the company. Now some years later she has progressed and is her own boss and wanted me to make a short presentation to camera for her company.

I produce video for people who want to present themselves or have an explanation article for say a company meeting or conference. The web is a fascinating arena for displaying who and what you are, so having a video clip to help the viewer understand and engage with what you are trying to share on a site is all an add bonus.

The equipment I use for this is fairly straight foreword. I often use DSLR to record the video in HD that is very good quality for this use where the final production will be hosted by Vimeo or Youtube.There is no short cut to be had when we come to sound and lighting. This needs to be the same as if you were shooting for a more complex situation due to lighting a scene and the sound recorded has to be a good standard.

We did have fun producing this. It was quite a warm July day and though the room we used was cool at first after an hour or so of studio lighting the temperature grew. My client was determined to do all the sections of the video shoot in one take and actually nailed it with considerable ease. That made the edit process in FCP for me an easier task. Well she is a professional!

Video Promos for Web

Video production page just launched on Alternative Images web site. Here I have placed video clips that have been recently made for promotions for web use. I have recently been doing these using DSLR cameras that shoot full HD maintaining superb image quality. The footage is then edited and re coded for the web so clients can use within their own sites or place on social media platforms such as Facebook. The introduction of shooting on DSLR cameras is that I can at the same time shoot stills for an application and also run footage that can be edited at a later stage to accompany any article. Using this method is a cost effective way for clients. Being a simple but effective procedure fits most requirements and budgets bringing that extra wow factor.  Visit  www.alternativeimages.co.uk/video.html
