EVENT VIDEOGRAPHY

Capturing your event on video is a great way to share it with people who can’t attend, to remember the event after it’s happened, or to get more bang for your buck from your event by using the video for marketing purposes.

STORYTELLING

When I capture a video of an event, I like to tell a story. The story can be simple event coverage (showing that you had an event and what it was like) or a crafted narrative told through your own words via filmed interviews and/or professionally recorded voiceover narration to accompany the footage of the event.

BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND

Before you hire a videographer for your event it’s a good idea to think about what the purpose of the video will be and where you will post the video.

  • Is it a keepsake for yourself and your family, showing the details of the event?
  • Would you like to utilize the event to craft a marketing video for your business?
  • Will you share the video on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, or other social media sites? If so, do you know the requirements of those sites regarding the length, size, and shape of videos they support?
  • What message will the video convey to the audience?

Working together with your end goal in mind, we can plan visuals, audio, text, and graphics to support your goal.

SCRIPTING

Every video has a script, even “unscripted” projects and “reality” television shows. The script can be written before or after filming.

Allowing adequate time for video scriptwriting in advance of your event ensures that your event will be covered the way you want, and this way you will get the most out of your investment in video.

If scriptwriting is done after filming, you still have the opportunity to write voiceover narration to help tell the story you want to tell. I will work with you to develop voiceover for your video and record it in a high-quality sound recording studio. High-quality voiceover narration is one of the hallmarks of professional video. Indeed, audio quality in general is one of the differences between amateur and professional video.

SUBTITLES

I can add burned-in subtitles in English or Spanish, or provide a transcript that you can use to create or edit subtitles on Facebook or YouTube.
