An Overview of Video Production
Video coverage has been in existence for quite a long time and the filming aspect of it has been improving with technology to be able to give us better clarity and better sound. Video production is the method of coming up with video content and being able to record the images digitally and not in film stock. In this guide we are going to look at the overview of video production and this will include the three stages which are pre-production, production, and post-production.
The first stage of video production which is the pre-production is before filming starts. The pre-production stage is whereby you do the preparation before the production actually starts and this involves writing of the script, putting up schedules, preparing a budget and other administrative duties. This stage is basically the foundation of the video production and this is because you require a script to be able to have a video to work on, and you will need a budget that will guide you on how much you can spend, and definitely need a schedule that will control your movements and your activities.
After dealing with the pre-production you come to the production part which is the center of everything and this is whereby you basically capture the video content or simply do the filming. This is a very sensitive area because it will portray the actual work that has been done during filming and live coverage and therefore it requires that you ensure that you have all the right professionals working with the cameras so that they can be able to capture everything as it should be captured. During this process when you’re dealing with a live event coverage it is even more sensitive and requires more expertise because this is an event that you cannot control and therefore will not wait for you to be ready to capture so you have to ensure that the people behind the cameras are able to keep up.
The final stage is the post-production stage which involves combining clips through video editing to the finished product that is able to tell a story or communicate a message and this can be done whether it is a live coverage or after an event has already occurred. This is the execution stage and therefore it will be able to tell the audience whether the message that you were actually trying to put out has been able to be understood by the audience. When it comes to this final stage this is a very crucial and vital stage because it will determine whether or not the video will be put up there for the audience and therefore the editing should be done thoroughly to ensure that the video comes out exactly the way it was supposed to come out so that it can be shown to its audience.
