An Overview of Video Production
Whenever technology changes we also have to keep up with the changing technology, when it comes to the filming industry, video coverage has also advanced and today we are able to capture live events using our phones or even cameras. Video coverage is simply the production of video content in terms of filmmaking the images are recorded 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.
Before you start taking any videos or filming, there is the pre-production stage which involves a couple of other things other than film. This stage involves more of the paperwork duties which include script writing, putting up schedules, budgeting, 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.
Once you have outlined or done your preparations in the pre-production stage you come to the real thing which is the production stage which involves filming and actually video coverage. 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. When the video coverage is trying to capture a live event whether it is a football match or a riot or something that is actually happening on the ground, they should be up on their feet because this is something that they are not able to control and will not wait for them to be ready for it to happen.
After the production, the stage comes the post-production stage and this is the final stage where basically everything is put together to try and come up with a video that will be able to tell a story or communicate whatever message that it was intended for whether it was a live event or a staged event. This is the stage that determines whether all the effort that has been put into the video is worth the while and whether you were able to portray whatever message that you were trying to put out there in the right manner. The post-production stage is able to determine whether the video will be put out for its audience or whether it will end up to be a flop and cancelled therefore the editors have to ensure that they do a good job to ensure that the video comes out the way it was supposed to come out for its targeted audience.
