What is Video Production Phase?
The video production phase is a very interesting and engaging procedure. It is the phase of plan execution, which was made during the pre-production phase. It involves everything you have written down in the script and visualised in the storyboard. Video production would involve such things as the coordination of the actors, lights, cameras, crews and actual filming. In a word, to make it a flowing and symbiotic film it is wise to follow a certain procedure.
The Procedure to Follow
Also, we have learned, that the only way to finish a project efficiently is to follow a structured approach. Therefore, you are advised to follow a structure during the video production phase. To begin with, prepare your filming set, according to your script and storyboard, before the action starts.
Location and Equipment.
It is important to arrive at the location early to set up the equipment before you will need it. For example, if you are using camera sliders, dollies, different types of background screens, a bunch of LED lamps and other equipment, install them before you start using them. It will save time, believe me. Also, make a count and write down all the equipment you bring to the set not to leave anything behind.
Make-ups and Decorations.
Your actors, as well as props on the filming set, are valuable assets. Precisely, which immerse your viewers into the environment you are creating. Paying attention to the decorations and how your actors look like is essential. Consequently, they will help you to create a more vibrant picture. Thus, the action begins, it is wise to place the right decorations on to their spots and look after your actor’s clothing and make-up.
Everything is at its place. Decorations immerse you into the picture. Actors are so accustomed to their roles – you start to believe them. Lights and sounds supplement each other and create an even more immersing experience. If that’s what happens on your filming set – you are on the right track!
Here we are talking about video production in general, not giving a precise look at its niche branch: “Promotion videos”. The approach everywhere is the same. It is structured and to-the-point. No time and money wasted. However, it does not mean you should not be living through each of your unique projects.
