Denver Video Production – Stages, Methods And Techniques

Today, digital video technology offers to more and more people the opportunity to engage in making video materials for personal or professional use. Different devices with video recording options, such as mobile phones, photo and video cameras, turn their users into potentially promising directors. Regardless of the video device, many of the principles related to recording a movie remain the same.

Here are the steps followed by any professional Denver video production company in the video creation process.

  1. Pre-production

This is the stage when the video project is planned. Before starting to produce a video, it is important to identify the target audience and to try creating the project in a way that provides the desired impact. Study the subject, find interesting places where the story of the project can be placed,  identify the people/ actors that should be a part of it, choose the image and the title.

When the studio part is finished, it’s time to complete your script and draw the storyboard. The final step of the pre-production is planning the filming schedule, informing the team about it and ensuring the availability of all equipment needed for production.

  1. Video production

During this stage, the video is shot by a team of different professionals. Depending on the requirements of your film, the team can be composed of 1-2 persons or a large group of people, each having a specific role (director, producer, operator, actor, sound engineer etc.)

Video shooting involves a variety of methods and techniques – each one with specific characteristics. They include:

  • Panning and zooming

Limit the amount of panning from side to side and zooming back and forth. Keep frames still. Pan only when you follow an action and zoom when you must highlight something. Especially if your movie is created to be watched on the Internet, the constant movement of the camera, after compression,  will make the video unstable and slow.

  • Filming still shots using a tripod

A tripod for the camera is essential in video production. However, if the tripod is missing for one reason or another, make sure that the image stabilizer of the camera is enabled. Video professionals also use some body posture tricks to keep the image still.

  • Using adequate angles and perspectives

One of the things that make a video to be different from another one that treats the same subject is the way it is filmed. Professional video makers do not shoot everything from the eye level; they show creativity in changing the filming angle and the height of the frames in order to make the most of them.

  1. Post-production

Once all the video information has been filmed and collected, it is time to put the story together using various editing software. Video shots are sorted are put in the right order, the overall length is calculated and adjusted, the sound, narration and music are added and synchronized, and titles, graphics and animation are introduced where necessary. The final result can be exported in various formats, depending on the ultimate goal and the audience.

When you choose a Denver video producer, look for a professional company that not only has the right know-how and experience, but is also able to provide a unique, outstanding end-product.
