When you’re making a video about a texting and driving demonstration, start by collecting supporting shots.
Go there and get video of people participating - in our case, using a simulator. Make sure you film them from different distances and sides.
Notice how we got close-up shots of their hands on the steering wheel - and on the phone trying to text. If you can get a clear shot of the monitor, film that too!
Now collect three separate interviews. You’ll want to talk to one person staffing the demonstration, and two people trying it out.
Ask the staffer how the simulation works and why it’s realistic. Then ask them to explain the dangers of texting and driving.
Ask the first participant why the issue is a problem…and what happened during their simulation.
Ask the next one if they thought it was tough…and what they do if friends text and drive.
Now decide which sound bites you want to use. It’s good to end with a bite that shows why it’s easy to stay safe.
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.
