Speed Up your Video Project with a Shot List or Project List

Do you find yourself procrastinating your next video project because it seems overwhelming? Trying to organize your video is a bit time consuming, especially if you don’t use some sort of organization in your project.

Well, why not try a simple Shot List or Project list?

A Shot List helps you to be efficient, when it comes to shooting different parts of your video at the same time. So, instead of shooting Part I in your video then Part II and Part III and so on, you can sometimes combine several of the shots at the same time. Then, split them up in Post Processing.

There are many examples of a Shot List on the internet. This video is just an example of how I use a simple Shot List or Project List to keep me organized.

Set-Up I Used for Capturing Video with the iPhone 4s (in the Last Post).

Video Set Up Video Set UpA

Here is the setup I used for Capturing Video using the iPhone 4s for a Review of the Marshall MXL USB Microphone.  I then uploaded it for use on YouTube.

I used:

-2 each Clamp-On Lights using 100 Watt Compact Fluorescent Bulbs. I used Light Stands to hold the Lights in place.  (You could clamp them to something else close by if you don’t have Light Stands.  You don’t have to have Light Stands)

-The iPhone 4s is attached to a Tripod in the foreground of the picture.  I had a special mount that holds the iPhone to a tripod. They are very cheap. ( If you don’t have a way to mount the iPhone to a tripod, you could hold it in place by maybe  supporting  it on a table with books, etc.  Being creative helps you to stay in budget.)


How to: Shoot Great Video Using an iPhone and Upload to YouTube

Great YouTube Video Using an iPhone 4s



Shooting Great Video with an iPhone 4s Cell Phone for YouTube!!

WHAT?? You can shoot Great Video with an iPhone 4s and upload it to YouTube? And it looks okay?

Impossible!! I don’t believe it!!

Read on and see:

Well, we did just that in the above video (see link above).

In keeping with the personality of this site (to keep things simple and economical), we did just that. We posted our first YouTube video that was shot with an iPhone 4s Cell Phone. (The same could be done with an iPhone 5, too.)

An App called FiLMic Pro (installed on my iPhone) was used to capture the video. FiLMiC Pro is a great App that can give almost professional results. Check it out on the iTunes store. Also, Google it and read some reviews concerning it. It really works well. I think it’s around $4.99 at the time of this posting.

The only part of the video that wasn’t shot with the iPhone is the last portion of the video that shows our Website/Blog Homepage. That was captured with Camtasia Screencasting software.

This YouTube video is a Product Review of the Marshall MXL USB 007 Stereo Condenser Microphone. I personally use this microphone for doing videos and I really like it. It is a wonderfully made microphone that comes in a nice zippered case. It also includes a desktop stand, wind screen, cleaning cloth and a USB cable.

The only other items used in the making of this video were:

– 2 each “Clamp-On” lights with 100 Watt Compact fluorescent Bulbs (Cheap!)
– a Tri-Pod to keep the iPhone 4s steady
– Camtasia Editing Software

After I shot the video, the video clips were sent to my home email address using DropBox. DropBox is a great way to send large files over the internet. I also sync’d my iPhone to my home computer using iTunes and it added files directly to my DropBox account on my computer. That was a lot faster than sending them over the internet.

So, pretty good video quality can actually be done on a budget if you really try.
