It doesn’t matter whether you are researching as you prepare for some project or you have been to a film school or program. One fact is true. There are certain lessons that you’ll just never learn in a classroom or from books. And that’s a fact.
Live everything else, sometimes the best way of knowing how to get anything done right is by getting in on the action. Have your hands dirty by doing all the work first-hand. This is the only sure way you’ll also know whether what you learned in class or from the books you read can also work when applied practically.

Here are a few tricks of the trade that you might want to consider running by your staff. Prevent them from learning the hard way when they actually get on set
- Sometimes the best contents come when nobody knows they are on
Yes! And it doesn’t even matter what video project or narrative film you are preparing for. Or whether you will have actors or non-actors working with you on the video shoot or not. One thing you will never learn from the many books and teachers is how important shooting rehearsals can be.
You always find that there is this much lighter but more casual atmosphere when actors ready themselves to shoot scenes. After all, there isn’t any real pressure at this time. And that’s precisely why you want to make sure to capture it. Your actors and subjects are more likely to perform their best while rehearsing than while doing the actual scene.
Sure, you won’t likely use every second of the films you capture during rehearsal. However, that doesn’t mean that you’ll have some of the best-performed scenes during this time. Scenes that turn out to be a lot better than if they were shot during the actual video shoot. You will always end up with some pretty good, usable content that may be a lot better than simply usable. So, don’t take rehearsal video shoots lightly either.
Plus, it also doesn’t necessarily be during the rehearsals either. Even opting to capture casual conversations of non-actors can sometimes be a winner. You may never know where a hit video shoot may pop-up. And that’s why it is crucial to have your cameras up and rolling at all times. Ready to pounce on any content that you believe might bring more flair to your final video content. That’s precisely what a professional Event Production Company should do.
- Some of the best elements may sometimes be born of necessity
It’s true that we all always have our own favorite television shows and other films. And from these shows, it’s often easy to spot and recall certain standout scenes that just ticked your fancy. However, you may just be surprised how many of the standout scenes and elements were actually born of necessity.
Countless examples of video directors, actors, writers, etc. make inspired creative choices every day on their own. And it is these choices that can sometimes lead to some of these unforgettable moments caught on film. But then, that’s just what they are; unforgettable.
There are also those moments where choices are made out of necessity instead of the typical pure creativity. And this may be as a result of many instances like time running out or people not showing up for the shoot, etc. You never know. Sometimes, it may just be a matter of the sunlight not cooperating.
By this, a good Event Production Company must always be ready to make compromises on the set where necessary. The trick here is to embrace the truth of the situation instead of working hard to fight it. And that’s what great Event Production Companies do. Always prepare yourself to adjust and evolve at any time. You never know when you might need to compromise on something. It’s just part of the game.
- Find the perfect balance between creativity and efficiency
Not everyone is familiar with the video and filming production process. As such, it is quite easy to envision a purely artistic environment every time you imagine what a set looks like. But then, you’d be right, at least partially. You will obviously find dozens of creative people present at a video shoot.
But then, you will also find tradespeople and workers at the shoot as well. But this depends more on the size and scale of the video production. You will also find a lot of equipment and people responsible for loading, unload, and even set them up.
To bring the point home. Video and film production isn’t an individually creative process. Take production, for instance. There tons of logistics that are involved here. And efficiency is how you get to run all these projects.
Therefore, perhaps the key to pulling off a quality video production process is to find the perfect balance between creativity and efficiency. Prepare to shoot your film in the most efficient way possible. This is the only way you will have freedom and time to be as creative as you want to.
While these may be, by no means, the only well-kept secrets to filming the best videos, they are some of the best ones. Take it from someone who has experience in the video production field. You can’t ever have too many tricks up your sleeve especially when it comes to bringing a project to life. But even so, wishing you the best of luck in your endeavors.
