Checklist for video recording
If you want to record an event or a person successful, various things have to be considered. The following checklist is intended to support you in your project.
Check in advance:
Enough free Space on the SD-cards
Batteries in all microphones
For new rooms, check the conditions on site (Light situation, frame,…)
Discuss together with the lecturer structure and procedure (how many speakers, breaks, discussions)
Take material with you:
2 cameras (+ SD-cards) and charging cables, if necessary.
2 camera tripods
3 headlights + 3 tripods
1 (with two speakers 2) radio Microphones + receiver
1 microphone + 1 microphone tripod for recording the audience
power stripes, spare batteries
Presenter, if necessary
Plant(s), if necessary
White sheet of paper (white balance)
Before the recording:
Arrange on the positions of the speakers
ALWAYS make white balance!
Adjust Shutter/aperture for the presentation (currently we use Canon 1/120, JVC 1/25 ) → avoid a flickering image
Connect the radio microphone(s) to camera 1, static microphone to camera 2.
Switch all microphones on and test them with the speakers, dB-amplitude should be around 10, check sound quality and volume with a headphone (on both cameras)
Check current light conditions and positions of the speaker (is he sitting, standing?). The lighting installation should be adapted to, not vice versa!
Arrange the responsibilities beforehand (who capture the wide shot/normal/close)
During the recording:
Check the Sound on every Camera with Headphones, not just the dB-amplitude. Adjust with the wheel carefully if the speaker speaks to loud or to quiet
With 2 radio microphones: If only 1 speaker speaks over a longer period of time (e.g. Presentation alone), turn-off the second radio microphone.
Always record the sound from all cameras (if there is no additional micro, use the internal camera microphone)
Check the image on every camera
Everytime the light conditions or the position of the speaker change, the lighting installation must, if necessary, rearranged. If possible during the
This applies to the images settings also. During the recording just in emergencies (e.g. flickering image)
