How to make a good, interesting video journal/blog of my wilderness adventure?
posted by justkevin to Media & Arts (4 answers total) 2 users marked this as a favorite
I'm about to leave on a solo trip into the Alaskan wilderness for just under two weeks. I'd like to record a video blog of my experiences while I'm out there. I've never tried recording myself on video before.
What are some techniques to help make my videos watchable (or at least editable into something that's watchable)? How should I be setting up my scenes where it's just me talking (probably in front of an attractive landscape)? How should I talk to the camera (or should I be talking to the camera)? Any tips for making this into something people will want to watch?
I'll have a compact point-and-shoot camera (Panasonic Lumix TS3) and a Joby Gorillapod to act as a tripod.
Bonus Q: Suggestions for topics that might be interesting and germane.
