5 mistakes/lessons learned from our first home made video

Virginia Berman

  • Get a tripod.  Test it out, practice using the tripod.
  • Find and shoot in an open, clean space (not the heavily used family bathroom for example).
  • Have light--plan for daylight, and bring in lights or foam core to reflect light if necessary. For us, filming children, that meant weekend when the children were not in school.
  • Take still shots of the product separately from the video. 
  • Narrate separately from the video so it's easier to edit.
