Tips from Video Bootcamp, Part Two

Shoot video in sequences:
Get the beginning, middle, and end of the action.
Think action/result and action/reaction. Shoot someone creating something, then shoot someone using it.
Get empty shots of the scene without people or action, both before and after the action takes place.
Get shot of the action entering the frame/setting (the beginning of action)
Get shots of the action leaving frame/setting (end of action)
