Tips for Capturing a Live Event on Camera

There has certainly been a point of time in all of our lives when we have filmed an occasion, whether it is an amateur video of a niece’s first birthday party, or a professional video of a corporate event. Some rely on an Orlando video production company for their video solutions, but others prefer to do the work themselves. For the latter group, the following tips can be quite helpful.

One of the most important stages of the production process is the pre-production stage. It is essential to be properly prepared when filming. Be sure to check out the location ahead of time, watch a rehearsal of what will be filmed, and make sure you have permission to film the event—without permission, you could find yourself in a great deal of trouble!

While filming, one of the best approaches is to use multiple directed cameras that are mixed together on the location; using only a single camera can greatly limit your options when editing later. Studio productions can be more expensive, but is much more professional. Be sure to budget in time to set up your equipment and take it all down. Also, allocate plenty of time for editing, as this stage can be the most time-consuming and tedious.
