More Videoblogging Tips

Just the other day, Chris Pirillo published a post and video with tips from one of his readers about filming live performances. I think that the tips are just as applicable to filming political events.

Here’s a brief excerpt:

  • Setup Get ready as quickly and smoothly as you can. Keep organized… and out of the way. If you’re a nuisance to the staff, they’re not going to let you film here. You must be respectful during setup and overall production.
  • Setting When preparing to film something, you must think about the size of the stage, crowd area, or any place you might use for your video, whether its going to be filmed, or going to be filmed from. Always take into consideration the size of the crowd, the size of the talent, and the sound levels as well.

You can read the rest of the article at Chris Pirillo’s blog, and you can learn more about political videoblogging from gearing up to uploading at Spazeboy’s Guide to Political Videoblogging.

This isn’t the first time that I’ve posted about some videoblogging tips that I read over at Chris Pirillo’s site. Check out the video editing tips I posted earlier this year.
