When you’re making a video about unique or inventive shoe styles, start by collecting your interview.
Talk to a designer who helped create the styles. Ask why he wanted to shake up the standard, and what the shoes will be used for. What’s it like to actually wear them? Then have him show you his favorite design and talk about it. Record each answer as a separate sound bite.
Now collect your supporting shots. Get video of the shoes in question - make sure you film each example. Ours were part of an exhibit…we got shots of each one on its display platform.
Get a mixture of close-ups and wider shots. Notice how I stood back to film the shoes in a row…and then got close to film details on each one. It’s good to play with different angles….I held my phone above the opening of this shoe.
Action shots are great - I also got video of the designer setting up the display and unpacking the shoes. Then we filmed people walking by the display window.
Now it’s time for your part as a reporter. You’ll want to write six sound bites…one to set up the story, four to advance the story and one to sign off.
Record yourself delivering those sound bites.
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!
