Help:how to create a video

This page gives some hints on how to make a great video (hopefully to upload to Freedom Porn).

Idea

Firstly you will need an idea for a theme or an act. It is really up to you how much you want to decide on before you begin. Sometimes it's better to have an outline of what is going to happen, while in other cases it may be better to just come up with a theme and then go wherever the muse will take you.

Place

Try to remove unrelated objects from the place you are going to be making a video. It is ok to have foreign stuff in the video if you are trying to make it appear chaotic, but sometimes it's better to tidy up a bit before hand.

Think about your comfort, if you have to take a break to close the window because it is getting cold, or if there are neighbours drilling holes in the wall to hand the picture frame... well, think about that.

Lighting

The best videos can be ruined if the Sun's rays get reflected off of something into the lens of the camera. Natural lighting makes everything look great, but it should come from behind the camera or at least not from right in front of the lens.

Use more light. If you do not have a professional lighting (which most likely you don't) taking a directional table lamp and turning it towards yourself may make a lot of difference.

If you are unsure about the lighting try to make a 5 second clip of you sitting in front of the camera... combing your hair or something... look at how you look, paing attention to the skin colouration, and make a decision on whether you want more or less light.

Equipment

TODO: Camera, tripod (or other podium), etc

Editing

On this site if you cannot edit the video yourself, you can send it to the administrator and explain what you are thinking about, and perhaps somebody will be able to help. We aren't professionals here, but we do know a thing or two.
