So you are all set to make a Bespoke Video extolling the virtues of your company. The key to any type of video presentation is to use it as a tool to introduce existing and new clients to what you offer. No video can cover everything you do as a company, and should act as a snapshot.

So a film crew are turning up, what do I do?

The What Where When and How to manage a camera crew. I’ve been filming for over 20 years now and I’m still amazed how long it takes from arriving on site, setting up and finally the camera rolling. But by asking the right questions before the shoot you can save valuable time – and money.

The new iPhone 5 is as close to been released we can almost smell it. Apple will make the announcement on Tuesday 4th October at their Cupertino headquarters. There are lots of speculation on the web about if Apple will launch 2 phones, an iPhone 5 and/or iPhone 4S.

The Art of The Time Lapse

We’ve all seen time lapse photography. It’s the kind of thing that gets posted on Facebook so we can marvel at the way a building grows out of the ground in a matter of seconds or a flower blooms and dies in just an instant.

The real benefit of time lapse is showing something that we are unable to view in real time. A motorway cutting its way through a chalk hillside takes years – yet, with time lapse, you can see its progress in seconds.

New technology has revolutionised time lapse. In the old days, you needed use a video camera and record onto tape in real time – therefore, if it took 40 minutes for something to happen, you had to roll tape for 40 minutes. Then it took 40 minutes to input the tape into the edit system. Then it was a question of simply speeding it up by 1000% to get aprox. 10 seconds of finished footage. But obviously a tower block being built takes far longer than 40 minutes – well, you do the math, as they say.

Now you just need a stills camera to create a time lapse video. It produces great quality HD images, and it’s better under low light. Personally, I take a series of photographs over a period of time. One frame every two seconds over 20 minutes will produce approximately 20 seconds of finished video.

It’s quick and easy to transfer the photographs on to computer. Using a programme like QuickTime, it’s simple to then compile those photos into a video. The end result is a high quality video that can be used in our Final Cut Pro edit suite. – and it’s great for corporate videos to add a real visual impact.

Time lapse video tips:

• Use a tripod
• Put the camera into stills mode
• Adjust exposure settings (aperture priority recommended)
• Set remote timer (aka intervalometer)
• Patience
