How to Shoot the Cutest Kids on Earth: Yours
 

· Think in Shots: Short, 5 second shots show us a lot, and keep others from being incredibly bored. · Shoot at their level. Don’t shoot down at them, be with them. Much more interesting.

· Don’t shoot until you see the whites of their eyes. You want memories...and kid’s lives are told through their faces. If you miss their eyes, you’re missing detail you’ll want later.

· Keep the video short. Your mother loves your kids, but if she’s bored, she’s just like you. It’s only one click from your link to Family Guy.

· Misbehavior is more watchable than good behavior. Which story do you tell: the night you were eight and sat down to a polite dinner, or the night your dad told a joke and your sister laughed so hard milk came out her nose? Shoot first, ask questions later.

· Use interviews. Kids say the darndest things, and all that.

 

How to Shoot Vacation Video that Doesn’t Suck

· Keep your shots short: You don’t want to have to live your vacation again in real time.

· Think before you shoot: If it’s not interesting (or not a good shot) don’t bother.

· People are more interesting than scenery: Have the scenery behind them by all means, but what you’ll want to remember in 10 years is your family and friends.

· Adding a story to you video kicks it to the next level: Tell that trip to Europe from your husband’s “first time out of the country” perspective and it will be much more interesting. At Disneyland? Don’t think “Billy in front of the castle.” Think “Billy being excited/worried about meeting Mickey.”
