HOW TO FILM AN EVENT VIDEO

Filming an event video is a really simple task. In order to keep it fresh, interesting and fast cutting, we find that the best way to edit it together is as a montage. This means all you have to do is capture as many cool clips as you can! We filmed the You Are The Media Lunch Club in January and used our experience there to tell you how to film the perfect event video. 

 

If you want to really make the most of having your camera handy during an event, why not film a few interviews while you're there? To do this, follow our interview tutorials and simply make sure you set your interviewee up in a place without too much loud noise (but a little bit of background noise actually helps set the scene!).

HOW TO CREATE A SOICAL VIDEO

A social video is the perfect way to shout about something in an eye-catching and interesting way. Your video would be made using your brand colours, fonts and logos, and it could not be easier to get started. Watch this video below to see exactly what to do.

Using our members area, all we need to create a video like this is: 

  • An opening sentence.
  • Between 3 and 8 bullet points.

That's really it! You can add photos to your video, but if you don't have the time to look for any, check this little box when submitting and we can do that bit for you!

It's great for announcements, opinion, advice or imparting knowledge.
