video production durban whats on this week

Another exciting blog from video production durban.  Whats been happening this week guys?  Well we are on a exciting shoot for a medical establishment in PMB. look forward to showing you the final product soon.

the shoot has led me to a question….Interviews, straight to camera or just off?  Both approaches has its positives and negatives.  Personally I like subject looking just off camera.  For me it relaxes the subject, makes it a discussion rather than a presentation to camera.  You always want the subject to relax in front of camera and be comfortable.  Nerves show on screen and through the voice.

We place our subjects looking just off camera, screen right or screen left.  Make sure eye line is level and that the subject does not look at the camera or operator.  I can promise you it is not easy at all.

Sometimes the most relaxed and best answers happen only after a few takes so make sure you have enough battery and tape ( memory card space)

Remember we looking for genuine from the heart answers so we need the atmosphere to be relaxed and the subject as ease.  Even turn off the red tally record light if it helps.

Join us for part 2 later

no 1 video company durban, editing

no 1 video company Durban is on the post production stage for the project.  Voice Over has been recorded and a song has been selected online from a copyfree site because of budget.

We have edited the prject with which we think are the best shots visually to tell the story.  This can be viewed differently from the client because they might view it from a personal side and look at who appears in the video and who doesnt.

The final ad is 40 seconds, this needs to include quite a long contact list as the very last frame in the timeline.  It is a requirement from the client so it must get included.

The edit right now is in the first draft stage, this means that while I’m typing this the client is looking at a draft version of the advert and deciding what changes need to be made.  We have to still finalise the last title and we not happy with 1 video in the advert but that most probably requires 3D animation to fix.

We are now in the waiting stage, we waiting for feedback from the client so that we can go ahead and edit Draft 2 .

GCV Productions will keep you posted.
