Video BLog

Rule of Thirds: when you divide the shot into three lines horizontal and vertical put the most important thing where the lines intercept at the top. 

180 rule: having an imaginary line and keeping the camera on one side.

Lighting in an interview: 3 lights, key light; bright light. Fill light; back lights, helps the key light. Back light, helps separate the subject from the background. 

diffuse your light
nose room; leave more space in front of nose
head room; no space above head. compose shot so the persons eyes are at the top of the frame
compose so the subject isn't breaking frame
think about the back ground just as much as the foreground. 

Mise en Scene is the setting of an event

12. The advantage of knowing our genre is what we can help interested people find out work quickly
13. Structure is everything in films
14. Writing your video ahead of time lets you do the hard work of making your story great the least expensive way possible on paper

Sample VIdeo

I created a video using Premiere Pro. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. I added two different videos and used the filters to add effects in between videos.
