STEP ONE

When you’re making a video about new public sculptures in the park, start by collecting supporting shots.

STEP TWO

There might be a press conference about the new art pieces.  Get video of the speakers addressing the crowd - you can turn their comments as natural sound bites later.

STEP THREE

Now collect your supporting shots.  Film several different sculptures and then choose an interesting one to focus on.  We chose this interactive swing.

STEP FOUR

Get video of your focus piece from different distances and angles.  Notice how we got shots while standing behind the swing…and to the side of it.  Try to catch people interacting with the sculpture as much as possible.

STEP FIVE

Now collect two separate interviews.  You’ll want to talk to the artist who created the piece - and someone else observing it.

STEP SIX

Ask the artist what they’re trying to achieve with their work.  Then ask how they hope the public will respond.

STEP SEVEN

Ask the observer to share their reaction to the piece.  Record each answer as a separate sound bite.

STEP EIGHT

Now decide which sound bites you want to use.  It’s good to start with a natural sound bite from the press conference…and end with a powerful bite from the artist.

STEP NINE

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 sound bites, and tap your supporting shots to follow them.
