In this video, I talk about how to get started using video. The first question is always what kind of camera. The answer is simple: get whatever camera you will actually use! You don’t need an expensive camera. An iPhone, a Flip cam, a Sonny Bloggie and a Kodak zi8 are all examples of inexpensive cameras that take great video. You don’t need an elaborate setup. In fact, this video was shot using an iPhone and the lights in my office…no professional lights or equipment.
The next step is to the go and create your video. Get a topic, create a story, and start shooting. If you’ve never done this before, you’ll need to practice. So.. get your camera and go practice. In the next lessons, I will go into more in detail about what kind of stories work, how to create effective videos, and the other steps to making video work for you.
