Producing a Video for a Major Event

Producing a Video For an Event

Producing a video during the major event of an organization is also a good way to keep the record of the organization’s activities. It also serves as a source of reference for future event planning or for promotional adverts. Before a video can be made, there are other things that have to be in perfect order so as to improve the chances of getting pleasant results and one of them is that the event itself has to operate smoothly.

There are a lot of things that go into the successful planning of an event especially a major one that could make or break the business. For individuals that have had the responsibility of planning an event placed upon them, then it is no secret that the selection of the venue as well as scheduling of events are a just foundation and the real building has not actually started.

For an event to be successful whether it is a promotional showcase, sales event, training session, consultation, talk show, seminar or retreat. It needs to be run smoothly and leave a positive impression on the participants that will remain in their memory.

An event cannot be successful if the content is not quality but even quality content is not enough to get it to the success stage. Things like technology, participants, locations and background need to be working smoothly and integrated seamlessly.

The presentations and recording methods for the major event have to work properly and the event itself has to exude class. If the event is interactive or educational, things like slideshows, graphical aids and videos need to be fully visible and audible to every member of the audience.

During the production of the video of the major event, as the organizer, you have to do the following.

Hire experts:

It is better to hire individuals that are well versed in an audio and visual implementation of technology. These experts also have their own equipment that can be outfitted for the venue. Click here, to see examples of well produced videos.

Minimize risk:

although video production has its various stages from shooting to editing, the process of shooting should be done smoothly so as to reduce a number of things that need to be edited.

Audio is key:

Take advantage of different tools audio, tactile and visual to communicate with your target audience. Capture audio from various interviews, or music playing at the venue so it can be incorporated into the video once it is being edited. This will allow viewers to feel as if they were at the event.

Check the equipment:

Ensure that the event technology has been set up and run multiple times so as to test for bugs or malfunction. The equipment your company owns may not even be fully compatible with your most up to date computer and communications technology so it is important to have a backup.

Add value:

Both the audio and visual elements of the video have to be in line with the setting of the event so as to optimize the video quality and appearance. A video will help convey a more professional demeanor.

Most Filmed Places in Miami

The city of Miami has shown countless times that it is a place to be when it comes to fun moments. From the sunny tropic weather, the beach waves and the exotic buildings, Miami is a location that oozes character no matter the region. It therefore comes as no surprise that the city has seen its fair share of box office intruders. The 1920’s was a period that saw interest in the Miami region as a filming location flare up as it served as host to several water themed films such as the family-friendly series “Flipper”.

Although the city had been in a lot of movies since the 1920’s period, the popularity of it did not happen until the airing of “Miami Vice” which captured the glitz, glam, wealth, and underbelly successfully that eventually aroused the curiosity of Hollywood. This eventually led to movies like the Fast & Furious franchise, True Lies and Scarface being shot there. Going by the ever growing popularity of the Miami location as a scenic spot for Hollywood movies, it was only natural that a look be taken at some of the most filmed places. They are:

Fontainebleau Miami Beach

If you ever find yourself at the poolside of the Fontainebleau Miami Beach hotel remember that you might actually be staying in the same spot where in “Scarface” Steven Bauer and the god father himself Al Pacino devised means to hook up with women. Another popular movie that was shot in this gem of architecture was the first Whitney Houston starrer “The Bodyguard”. The penthouse and pool of the hotel were showcased in the movie.

Mandarin Oriental, Miami

Bad Boys II was a movie that showcased a lot of Miami to the viewing pleasure of the audience but none was as eye grabbing as the scene where the detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) made an awe inspiring entrance at the stylish Mandarin Oriental hotel lobby overlooking Biscayne Bay.

Miami-Dade Cultural Plaza

This location is surrounded at every turn with beautiful architecture that serves as host to the Cultural Plaza and Miami-Dade Public Library. This piece of Miami showcases its rich history and highlights the Downtown skyline of Miami. The Perez Art Museum previously known as the Miami Art Museum and Center for Fine Arts respectively was the location of the scene where Cameron Diaz “Mary” takes Matt Dillon “Pat” to an architecture exhibit. In fact, most of the film is shot around Miami.

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

You might be taking a stroll through Miami and happen upon the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens and start wondering why the feeling of déjà vu is being experienced. This is probably due to the fact that this location happens to be a popular spot for Hollywood blockbuster movies. This European inspired villa in the neighbourhood of Coconut Grove has served as host to Aldrich Killian’s Miami mansion in “Iron Man 3”, the party house from Jim Carrey’s zany comedy “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective”, snd also the home of drug smuggler Johnny Tapia.

Video Production as an Art

Just like any other form of production, video production is no different as it involves processes that come together to bring about a final output. The processes in their own way can be revered as a form of art as a lot of attention has to be paid to detail. Therefore, it can be said that video production is an art that combines processes together to create a video by capturing movie images through videography, combining those images, eliminating the unwanted parts of the captured images in the stages of editing and bringing about the final product.

Technology has seen to it that videos captured can be recorded and stored using different mediums from video tape, hard disc and SD cards. Videos are things that have now become a part of daily life as they are constantly featured on TV sets, social media outlets etc and as a result, it became important for them to be in easily distributable formats such as Windows Media Video (.wmv), Moving Picture Experts Group format (.mpeg, .mpg, .m4p), QuickTime (.mov), Audio Video Interleave (.avi). Video production and film production are similar yet different as film production involves recording of images digitally which is different from video production as it makes use of film stock.

Video production as an art means that the process can be in any form from:

– The use of a simple camcorder to record a home movie for the family.
– The operation of a video camera by a solo individual making use of the single-camera setup to capture footage.
– The working together of a videographer and an engineer to brush up on the final video.
– The multi camera setup as used by television studios.
– The use of a full set of production crew for an electronic field production making use of a studio.

Video production is just like any form of art where imagination is brought to life through skill that expresses important ideas or feeling. The art of video production is more or less found in the production and post-production stages. In the production stage of the video, a lot of things have to work together for a concept to be brought to life; the right background, the right script, the right use of costumes, the right effect, the right lightning, the right tone of voice etc.

In the post-production stage, efforts are made to make sure that the envisioned final product actually bears a semblance to the output and editing is heavily relied upon to make this possible. As Francis Ford Coppola says, “The essence of cinema is editing. It’s the combination of what can be extraordinary images of people during emotional moments, or images in a general sense, put together in a kind of alchemy”. In a way it is being able to channel the creativity of one’s mind into the final stages of finishing touches. More or less, the work done in post-production is what makes or breaks the final video.
