1. Select the video style. Examples include the following:

    a. Documentary style: Camera normally frames the subject with a centered bust shot (waist up or higher), and the talent usually looks directly at the camera. Use cutaways to video segments or still images to illustrate the points made by the speaker.

    b. Situation style: Viewers are made to feel that they are bystanders in one corner of the room, watching the action. Subjects in the video should be facing each other, not the camera.

    c. Scripted style: The content is often captured in short, staged clips that are edited together to appear as an uninterrupted scene.
     
  2. Research the topic for facts, graphics, sounds, video clips and other needed material.
  3. Conduct interviews as needed.
  4. Write any scripts or dialogue needed for commentary.
  5. Determine what computer skills are needed for editing the video.
  6. Take the movie with the cameras
  7. Use Movie Media to make your little movie.
