rule of thumb for video editing
Rule of Thumb for Video Editing
  • Don’t string together scenes in which the camera is moving. Pans, zooms, and other moving shots should always be separated by static shots.
  • Shots that follow one another should be from different camera positions. It should vary by at least 45 degrees.
  • Titles should be informative, describe the contents of the movie and gain audience interest.
  • Titles should be short, and in large, legible font.
  • Title colors should be easy read: Good background/text combinations are: white/red, yellow/black, white/green.
titles continued
Titles (Continued)
  • Titles should be on screen long enough to read through it twice.
  • Allow about 3 seconds of onscreen time for a title with ten letters.
  • Natural titles, such as street signs, or title pages of newspapers create interesting titles.

hard and soft light
Hard and Soft Light
  • Hard Light-refers to the light produced by a direct source which creates shadows with clearly defined edges. Hard light is usually bright like the sun at midday.
  • Soft Light-refers to light that isn’t as direct, and produces shadows that are blurred at the edges or fade away. This light would be filtered light or natural means such as fog, clouds, shade.
white balance
White Balance
  • White light is a combination of all the colors of the spectrum, as you’ve seen in a rainbow.
  • While videotaping, light is not always white due to the a lot of factors.
  • Your camcorder automatically adjusts to compensate for this color temperature of the light by setting the white balance.
shooting outdoors
Shooting Outdoors
  • Avoid shooting in the middle of the day.
  • Clouds are your friends, great diffuser of sunlight.
  • Shade is also good, the shade of a tree or side of a building.
  • Maximize natural light, shoot early or late in the day.
