Tips for Creating a Successful Video

Now that you are ready to film your happy birthday wishes to VHMA, here are some tips for creating a superb video. Ready, camera, action!

  1. Know what you’re going to say before you say it. Rehearse it so it does not seem like you are reading from a script.
  2. Stay away from bold colored clothes/loud prints. This can be distracting and take away from what you are trying to say.
  3. Relax your body language. Too much movement might make you appear nervous.
  4. Test the lighting through the camera before you film it. Lighting is everything!
  5. Say no to special effects. These can be distracting to the viewer.
  6. Know your camcorder. This will make the process that much easier!
  7. Be conscious of background sound. This could overpower your voice.
  8. Use a tripod. This will keep your shot steady.
  9. Shoot close. This will cut out background distractions.
  10. Edit! Make sure you replay your video before sending it in-electronic proofreading.

We hope these tips are helpful with your filming process, but most importantly, don’t forget to have fun! Thank you for your contribution!
