How to make a compelling piece - step by step tutorial
Now I’m going to go through how to make a successful video, step by step. You should have laid out your production plan and visuals shotlist, and also you’ve got your main points from your messaging document. These will be useful for your interview and I’m going to show you how.
The first step is equipment. The two musts for a good video are a SLR camera and a nice microphone. See below for my links to either buy a used t2i or to rent. You can rent all the equipment you need for less than a hundred dollars. The main things that are absolutely crucial, though, are a glidecam, a super wide angle lens, and a 50mm lens that opens up to f1.8. These are the tricks of the trade that will set your video above even many production houses, because with this you’ll be able to achieve a picture style that is much softer focus, and you’ll have engaging handheld footage that is smooth - this makes your production much faster than having to set up a tripod again and again,
