Creating a video?

video-storytelling-projects-cover-110.jpgAre you thinking about creating a video? Maybe a new youtube or vimeo venture?
Team member Obregon has reviewed four books on this topic and this is interesting, short reading.

The four books are:
- Introduction to Documentary, 3d Ed. by Bill Nichols
- Sound Design for Film by Tim Harrison
- Video Storytelling Projects by "RC" Concepcion
- Film Editing: Emotion Performance and Story by Julie Lambden

Introduction to Documentary
"At the risk of revealing my own insecurities, the most valuable lesson I learned from this book is that my own videos fit into the traditional definition of documentary."

Sound Design for Film
"Although I'm pretty competent with shaping the visual portion of motion pictures (film or video) in order to create a mood, I'm a little last certain when it comes to the audio portion. I can record accurate audio that sounds more or less like what you would hear if you were standing next to me. I have a hard time shaping the sound either at the time of recording or in post processing so that it sounds like anything but exactly what I heard. (It's not always easy to do that, and I probably use more audio equipment for sound than the average person.)"

Video Storytelling Projects
"There are books that teach how to use tools like cameras and software and other books that show how to structure the video. This book is a good combination of the two for elementary videography."

Film Editing: Emotion Performance and Story
"Someone asked today how to get started in film making. I was startled. There are so many crafts and skills involved. I found the question hard to answer, but I knew that it was important to understand editing. Lambden is certainly a good starting point on a long journey."
