Start with your client. Who do we mean by the client? Well, every project has a reason for existing. Someone has decided there is a need to capture images and craft a video to communicate a message.

Three vertical and three horizontal lines that are equidistant divide the screen. This creates nine sections on the screen. The intersections are reference points that can be used for guidance when framing a shot. The rationale is that points of interest naturally occur at 1/3 or 2/3 of the way up (or across) the video frame. These points often work well for positioning objects in the frame. If you’re creating a portrait-style shot, try framing so the eyes are placed at the left or right intersection.

During a shoot, unforeseen events can occur. Power outages, inclement weather, illness, traffic jams, construction noise, and the like can wreak havoc on a schedule, so have a backup plan! There are as many solutions as there are unanticipated problems. As you visit project locations, try to view them with both a technical and a creative eye. Remember, a site survey is critical and should be executed as skillfully as the shoot. Have a schedule and a checklist, and stick to both. It’s essential to the overall success of your video.
