Remember a few weeks ago when we shared our BIG announcement? Well, it is really, real. We can really officially say we are the video brand ambassadors over at Homes.com! Today, we are not only sharing our intro video but teaching you the “do’s” and “don’ts” of filming an intro video.
So one thing that we learned from this video… scripts are not our thing! lol. It took us over an hour and probably a good hours worth of out-takes to get just one decent video created.
finally installed the recessed lighting in our laundry room we figured this would be the most ideal and brightest place to film. There I am with our camera on the tripod and three pages of “script” that we quickly wrote out.
So here are a few of the “do’s” and “don’ts” of filming an intro video:
- Do map out what you want to say
- Do sit in a well lit and quiet area
- Do have your dog locked up and out of sight.
- Don’t read from a script
- Don’t film late at night after a crazy long day–minutes before you are ready for bed.
- Don’t film in a dark room
- Don’t have a dog around you for distraction.
So, after much anticipation here is our introductory video from the Homes.com YouTube Channel.
You’ll be happy to know that we threw the scripts to the wind (well maybe because we never intended to do any scripted work), and have begun filming! We already have 4 videos complete and let me just tell you that they keep getting better and better! I cannot wait to share them with you over the next few months!
And for good measure here is a photo of us and our sweet pup, Lola, after filming was all done.
