What Hardware for nationals video unit please?

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by benrothwell, Feb 9, 2012.

  1. Filming there own video is a "nice idea" - we tried it, but what you end up with is a whole lot of very unprofessional looking video - shakey hands, crazy zooms, massive and very quick pans etc.

    What I have stuck to this year (and made my Unit 23 Nationals work so much easier to manage) was a bank of Theme Park footage for a raft of different theme parks in the UK, Europe and the USA and used this to slice together adverts for a Theme Park.

    Kids loved it, it was easy to storyboard, easy to edit and looked professional.
  2. Sounds a great idea. But I really want to get them doing things. A promotional video for the school that they have done, or something that they might find interesting. But I take on board about zoom etc. I only have the kodak sport pocket cameras so few effects on the camera.

    Ditto - 350 in a cohort. Most tend to do "local cinema" type adverts - still photos and edit them together into a montage. Had some good stop-frame animation this year too.
