When you’re making a video about a Three Kings Day celebration, start by collecting three separate interviews. You’ll want to talk to one person working at the party, one guest who came to enjoy it, and another who knows the history behind the holiday.
Ask the worker why celebrating is important and what they’re doing for their part.
Ask the guest why they’d encourage other people to come.
Then ask the last person to tell you what the holiday means and how it affects people in the community. Record each answer as a separate sound bite.
Now collect lots of supporting shots. Get video of people celebrating together. Catch them having fun and reacting to their surroundings. Notice how we got video of these people dancing, and these people trying food samples. If there’s anyone in costume, make sure you get them on-camera. We got video of three kings handing out presents to children.
Make sure you get a mixture of wider shots and close-ups. Notice how we got close-up shots of this toy pile, and this special crown bread.
If there’s any live music going on - like this band - make sure you film them too. There might be a crowd, so work your way up to the front for the best shots.
Now decide which soundbites you want to use. It’s good to start with a natural soundbite of the action - like the band playing.
To put it together, open Videolicious. Select your supporting shots in Step 1 in the order that matches your sound bites. In Step 2, import your sound bites in the order you want them to play. Play back your soundbites and tap your supporting shots to follow them!
