Defining the Project
If you are a videographer, or an aspiring videographer, and you have ever received notice of a last minute video opportunity or request, you may have had to scramble to get your equipment together.
If you are local, it is fairly easy, assuming you have already done this and you have the equipment ready and available. But, if you have to use the airlines to go somewhere remote, it becomes a little tricker, especially without the advantage of pre-planning for the ad lib event.
In this segment, we are going to talk about the part that *should* come before the videographer part. Why should you, as the videographer care? Well, because part of this, especially for smaller projects, may fall on your shoulders.
Chances are, if this is a last minute idea or concept, you do not have a script for the video. Many creative types will say they have it “all in their head” and that there is no problem, that you can show up and just “shoot.”
You don’t necessarily want to pass up on these creative types because some of the best ideas can come out of these last minute ad lib ideas.
