A Video by Professor Hodierne

Tips to Remember

1. Use a tripod unless camera movement is necessary or adds to the shot.
2. Use a lavalier microphone. Good audio should be a primary concern when making your video.
3. Side lighting works best.
4. Don't be afraid to get in close.
5. Use the rule of thirds.
6. Don't place your subject directly in the center of the frame.
