An Overview of Video Production
Whenever technology changes we also have to keep up with the changing technology, when it comes to the filming industry, video coverage has also advanced and today we are able to capture live events using our phones or even cameras. Video production is the method of coming up with video content and being able to record the images digitally and not in film stock. In this guide we are going to look at the overview of video production and this will include the three stages which are pre-production, production, and post-production.
Before you start taking any videos or filming, there is the pre-production stage which involves a couple of other things other than film. The pre-production stage is whereby you do the preparation before the production actually starts and this involves writing of the script, putting up schedules, preparing a budget and other administrative duties. The pre-production stage is seen to be the base of the video production, and this is because it outlines what is required before you start to do any production and this are the script writing, scheduling, and budgeting which are mandatory before you start your production.
Once you’re through with the preparations at the foundation stage which is the pre-production stage, what follows is the production stage which basically involves filming or simply video coverage. Production is basically the center stage of video coverage and for this reason it is important to ensure that you have experts behind the cameras so that they can be able to capture the video the way it should be, if it is an event they should be able to capture everything whether it is a live event or a play. During this process when you’re dealing with a live event coverage it is even more sensitive and requires more expertise because this is an event that you cannot control and therefore will not wait for you to be ready to capture so you have to ensure that the people behind the cameras are able to keep up.
After the production, the stage comes the post-production stage and this is the final stage where basically everything is put together to try and come up with a video that will be able to tell a story or communicate whatever message that it was intended for whether it was a live event or a staged event. This is the stage that determines whether all the effort that has been put into the video is worth the while and whether you were able to portray whatever message that you were trying to put out there in the right manner. The post-production stage is able to determine whether the video will be put out for its audience or whether it will end up to be a flop and cancelled therefore the editors have to ensure that they do a good job to ensure that the video comes out the way it was supposed to come out for its targeted audience.
