A Discussion about 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 production is the method of coming up with video content and being able to record the images digitally and not in film stock. We are going to look at how video production is done through looking at the various stages that it goes through which includes the pre-production, production, and post-production.
The initial stage when it comes to video production is what is called the pre-production and this is even before you start filming. This stage involves more of the paperwork duties which include script writing, putting up schedules, budgeting, and other administrative duties. The pre-production stage is seen to be the base of the video production, and this is because it outlines what is required before you start to do any production and this are the script writing, scheduling, and budgeting which are mandatory before you start your production.
Once you’re through with the preparations at the foundation stage which is the pre-production stage, what follows is the production stage which basically involves filming or simply video coverage. When it comes to the actual production or filming of whatever it is that you want to capture it is important that you ensure that you have quick and precise cameramen who are able to capture what should be captured and not miss out on anything. 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.
Now we come to the final stage which is the post-production stage and this is the stage where we basically wrap up everything and try to combine it through editing and ensure that the message that is supposed to be portrayed is brought out the way it should. 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 editing stage it is where everything lies and that therefore it has to be done with caution to ensure that the final video is the way it is supposed to be for its targeted audience.
