Chapter 6 Movie Making with the Nikon V1/J1 > Tips for Shooting Better Video

Tips for Shooting Better Video

Producing good quality video is more complicated than just buying good equipment. There are a number of different things to consider when planning a video shoot, and when possible, a shooting script and storyboard can help you produce a higher quality video.

Keep Things Stable and on the Level

Camera shake’s enough of a problem with still photography, but it becomes even more of a nuisance when you’re shooting video. While the Nikon V1/J1’s lens image-stabilization features can help minimize this, it can’t work miracles. Placing your camera on a tripod will work much better than trying to hand-hold it while shooting.

Shooting Script

A shooting script is nothing more than a coordinated plan that covers both audio and video and provides order and structure for your video. A detailed script will cover what types of shots you’re going after, what dialogue you’re going to use, audio effects, transitions, and graphics.
