Tips from Video Bootcamp, Part One

A lot of close ups — think of the devices people are using now and how small the screens are.
Powerful sound.
A lot of different shots — variety, variety.

Get shots of:
ACTION & REACTION (POV): A shot of someone doing something/A shot from the point of view of the person doing something.
MOTION: Action
EMOTION: Close ups, stillness

Bring a shot list along to help you plan.
