Stephanie’s experience includes filming celebrity interviews for her website, as well as her own advice channel on YouTube, Ask Frasco.
One of the most important things that were discussed is how easy it is to produce your own video content, even if you don’t have professional equipment. With a Flip camera ($110-$140 on Amazon) it’s easy to capture moments, interviews and events with the small portable camera. Also, most digital cameras capture video as well. The best way to become comfortable working with video is to go out and shoot. Shots won’t always come out the way you planned, but practice makes perfect.
Five important tips when first starting creating video content:
1: Figure out what you want to cover; thoroughly plan out your ideas
2: Talk to publicists about event coverage
3: Think about what you would like to capture
4: Be true to yourself and capture subjects you’re enthusiastic about
5: Trial and error! If it doesn’t work, try again.
