Best Tips for Recording & Editing Video and Audio Files
Educational Technology has put together some best tips for recording and editing video and audio files.
- Brainstorm and draft out your plans on how you will create the video or audio.
- Outline and think about what content is the most important to share.
- Write out a script to help you as you as you record.
- Decide on the key features that you might need to include (i.e music)
- Practice. You do not have to get this perfect the first time.
- Try to use a quiet location (if possible) to help with ambient sounds but realize that it might not be perfect.
- When filming, making sure there is enough light.
