Join Chris Mattia for an in-depth discussion in this video Moving the camera, part of Training Tips Weekly.
- We are naturally drawn to movement.…All of our senses are highly tuned to detect changes…in our environment, sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell.…When something is moving, it's changing,…and we can't help it.…It's interesting.…It's different.…It's something we need to pay attention to.…So this week on Training Tips Weekly,…we're going to focus on using movement…to draw our learner's attention.…Now movement simply for the sake of movement…is not what we're talking about.…
If the camera that's filming me was constantly shaking…in random patterns, you probably wouldn't keep watching.…There would be no purpose behind it.…The movement would be a distraction.…Likewise, if this movie was one long static slide of text…that you had to read, it also wouldn't be very appealing.…So what's the balance?…Well, first of all, for normal talking-head shots like this,…make sure that your camera is on a good, sturdy tripod.…
This will remove the random camera shakes…and allow your learner to focus on the instruction.…Then, for demonstrations, it may be advantageous…
