Your Extracurricular New Paltz projects have obvious possibilities for b roll: the extracurricular activity itself. But the key to a strong video is visual variety. So once you’ve captured footage of the activity, using a variety of shot types and perspectives, what other b roll possibilities do you have?

But that’s not the only activity depicted in the b roll. We’ll discuss what else the video used as b roll and why — and then think about possibilities for our own projects.
