Creating a Video About Dangers Involved With Texting

The purpose of this video is to demonstrate how to create a video about dangers involved with texting. In our example, we cover people taking part in a texting and driving simulation.

STEP ONE

When you’re making a video about a texting and driving demonstration, start by collecting supporting shots.

STEP TWO

Go there and get video of people participating - in our case, using a simulator. Make sure you film them from different distances and sides.

STEP THREE

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!

STEP FOUR

Now collect three separate interviews.  You’ll want to talk to one person staffing the demonstration, and two people trying it out.

STEP FIVE

Ask the staffer how the simulation works and why it’s realistic.  Then ask them to explain the dangers of texting and driving.

STEP SIX

Ask the first participant why the issue is a problem…and what happened during their simulation.

STEP SEVEN

Ask the next one if they thought it was tough…and what they do if friends text and drive.

183-08-sound bite

STEP EIGHT

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.

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.
