A lot of factors are being considered whenever a Lakeland video production is being created. What is the video all about? Who is the subject and who are we supposed to focus on? What is the underlying message we are supposed to digest?
However, there is another factor that is just as important as what has been mentioned and that is: Location. Where did this all happen? Where was the shot set up? (Why are there so many questions?) Choosing the perfect location for your video is an important task and it should never be taken for granted. After all, it could very well make or break your video.
That said, here are some tips for scouting the best location for your next video production:
Pick someone your own size!
When filming, you have to remember to consider your location as you decide on how wide or narrow your next shot would be. Sometimes what you think is the right-sized room can actually ruin the look you were striving for.
Despite it not being the actual focus of what you’re filming, the background still matters. And if chosen correctly, you can also take several unique shots of it.
A Quiet (Enough) Place
So you think you’ve found a sound place to shoot. Brilliant! You prepare all the equipment needed to start shooting, have it all set up, and- you hear loud sirens in the distance.
Not so brilliant. It’s not like natural background noise is prohibited. But if it gets too distracting, you can imagine how troubling it would be if it actually makes your audience lose focus.
Hello! (Hello!) Hello! (Hello!)
It’s not uncommon to choose an entirely empty room to shoot in. However, that does come with a certain challenge and that is hearing an echo (echo). So just make sure to look out for it once you start shooting, in case you’ve recorded poor sound quality.
Let there be light!
The lighting helps determine the mood in your shot. It also helps the audience see what needs to be seen. With this in mind, you should be able to keep the lighting under your control in your chosen shooting location for your corporate Lakeland video production.
Safe and sound
Of course, there is a lot of equipment that needs to be used on location when shooting a corporate Lakeland video production. It can vary from several cameras, boom microphones, and probably a hundred more valuable props.
That’s why it’s also very important to select a safe shooting location. Not only can you safely keep certain equipment that is currently not being used during shooting, but it is also necessary for the general safety of you and your crew.
