• Lighting – Lighting is probably the most important part of video and photography. Make sure the subject is well lit and if budget allows you should consider investing in external lighting as well. There are a number of video companies in the UK who hire their lights by the day, so this is definitely worth considering.
• Sound – If you’re doing a talking head video or video where your subject is speaking then it is worth considering the use of external microphones. The main reason for this is that unless you have high end and expensive kit, you’ll find that most video cameras have poor microphones built in. An external microphone is a must if you’re recording events, presentations or training videos.
• Headwear – Ok, you may not like to wear headphones; but they are cool and make you look like you know what you’re doing (joke). They are used to help you to ensure the sound is balanced correctly. You’ll learn quickly that time spent ensuring sound is good is time well spent; failure to do this will often result in the need for a re-shoot.
• Be the Director/Boss/Shouty Person – Noise and interference do not contribute to good video recording. Make sure that you explain to people why the need for minimal noise is important. It’s always a good idea to add a sign to the doors requesting quiet.
