you’ve got mail filming locations
- October 24, 2021
Just like all the other video production companies, you can’t just shoot your footage on location. A video production company has to have facilities to film, editing suites, and a slew of other equipment. You also have to have a very specific budget that you can afford to spend on the right equipment.
I think it’s fair to say that video production companies are a very specialized industry, and if you’re not careful you can have your video shot on location and end up with footage that doesn’t exactly match your production budget.
With that being said, if you have a video production company and you want to shoot your video outside, there are some things you have to consider. First and foremost, you just need to ensure that it is legal to shoot on location.
When filming on location you should ensure that you have the right equipment for the job. You will need to have a camera rig, lighting, and sound equipment that is all of the right caliber. To be fair, when I shoot my videos on location, I often use a Nikon D7000 with a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens for the lighting and use a Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lens with a Nikon D90 camera for the camera rig.
Speaking of the camera rig: In most cases I use a Nikon D90 camera because it is a high quality camera, but in some instances I use a D7000 for the camera rig. It’s a good idea to get a good camera rig for your filming needs.
Cameras and lenses are often important for filming because if you don’t have them, you won’t have the equipment to shoot the footage. However, it is important to note that there are plenty of different types of camera rigs. They can be different kinds of high-power zoom lenses, wide angle lenses, macro lenses, telephoto lenses, etc. Also, a lot of times you’ll want to be shooting a wide angle lens to see what’s going on underneath.
The main reason youll need a good camera rig is to get your background to work. If you want to get the background of the room, then you need to get a good camera, but youll also need a good camera rig for the camera.
Basically, a good camera rig can only be used for filming in locations you’ve marked out. Thats a little different than shooting a wide angle lens, but it’s pretty much the same technique. If your are using a camera rig for a non-standard purpose, like shooting a wide angle lens that you want to use for something else, then you’re going to have to mark a location out for it.
Usually cameras are designed for shooting in natural light, but you can use them to make indoor scenes. The reason you need to use a camera rig for indoor scenes is because the camera is mounted on a tripod, meaning the camera is essentially stationary. This means that the camera has no movement whatsoever. So if youre shooting a wide angle lens indoors, you want to mark a location that will allow your camera to be stationary, then you can shoot the scenery with the camera rig.
Basically, to shoot in the right light, you need to have the camera set at an angle so that you can set it up so that you can see the subject with your eye (which means you need to have light coming in with the lens aimed at you). This is basically what you are doing with those indoor scenes.
