This week was a slight change in format in that we had a presentation only. The topic was Getting Started With Video and we were given a very entertaining and informative talk by one of our regulars on how to video and record short interviews and how to edit them together afterwards. We had tips on how to pick a good person to interview, recording sound, synchronising sound and video with off camera microphones and some common pitfalls.
As a community this is exactly the kind of evening we’d like to encourage – one of our members coming along and telling us all about “their thing” and ideally giving us all a go.
Next week, an introduction to basic studio lighting.
