Presentation Transcript

Rule 1 tell a concise story
Rule 1: Tell a concise story

  • Videos are typically under 5 mins.

  • Videos should have a beginning, middle, and end

  • Don’t just show up for the event; shot before, after, and during the event

  • Think about sections and transitions beforehand


Rule 2 focus on an individual or group
Rule 2: Focus on an individual or group

  • Stories about trends and issues can be made infinitely more gripping by focusing on a single person or group whose personal story encompasses it.

  • Ask questions that will help you build your story: How did you get started doing this? (Beginning) What obstacles have you encountered along the way? Howdid you overcome them? (Middle) What is your ultimate goal? (End).

  • By far the most important question is "Why?"


Rule 3 use several clips and angles
Rule 3: Use several clips and angles

  • Grab lots of footage of your subject(s) talking, walking, interacting, along with establishing shots or long pans of the locale, so that we'll have something to look at while the reporter (or subject) is talking.

  • Use close-up, medium, and far away (play with angles – wide shots should be first to set the stage).

  • 2 reactions for every action (event).

  • Use more than talking heads – use voice overs.


Rule 4 rely on journalistic rules
Rule 4: Rely on journalistic rules

  • Make sure it is newsworthy

  • Get multiple perspectives

  • Try more deep storytelling: more engaging explanations and analysis

  • Use rule of thirds – don’t move the camera; get a tripod or hold camera with elbows on a surface or against your body)
