Making your Own Business Videos
By Fred Parker of MentorEx
I wrote an article in late July of this year with the same title as is used here which was on several blog/article sites and which was widely read and generated a number of comments and enquires. Since writing it I have made a number of Videos on the subject of exporting and this has produces some interesting issues with which I have had to deal. By way of a refresher here below is the original article Making Your Own Business Videos
There is no doubt that video is taking off, trending as they say! And there is no doubt too that it does make for more interest in Blogs and websites.
Using specialist video production companies is an extra expense which can be avoided. Certainly the result of a “roll you own vid” is going to less professional but that is not likely to detract from its credibility. In addition once you have the camera the cost of making more videos is Zero!
You will need: A camera, a tripod to mount it on, a laptop and a Lavalier microphone. For the camera I use the Kodak Zi8 which has a USB output and plugs directly into your computer to download your video and a side jack socket to take the sound from the Lavalier remote clip on microphone. A feature of the Kodak Zi8 camera is the Free ArcSoft editing suite which comes with it. This allows you to edit out the bits of the video you don’t want, insert your logo and add titles and credits. You can also add transitions to separate one part of the video from another.
The laptop is used for the teleprompter. You can download the Free Software from Telepromptermirrors.com it’s very simple to use and by reading your script it saves all those fluffs! If you would like to see an example, go to the Comconsult Website www.comconsult.co.uk and click on the video blog links on the MentorEx page.
