21 Feb Achieve Compositional Balance by Working with a Video Production Company in Tampa
Everyone understands the basics of what constitutes a good video nowadays. This is because we’re all savvy TV and movie-watchers. We’re all exposed to videos on YouTube. So we know what types of videos work and what types don’t. We unconsciously understand the basics of composition and how a video is supposed to flow.
When you’re working with a video production company in Tampa, you can take your vision of how you want your video to look and make it into a reality.
Keep it Brief and Engaging
Maybe you want to make a television commercial. Well, you already know that those are supposed to be brief. However, when it comes to reality TV, you may think that it’s ok to make it longer. After all, you have half an hour or an hour to fill.
But keep in mind that today’s viewer has a very short attention span. So if you don’t have enough material to keep them engaged for the entire show, then don’t try to stretch out what you have. Add some new material and keep things moving.
Make It Visually Appealing
Everyone knows that a video needs to be visually appealing. This is why people usually get good-looking models or actors to star in it and spend a lot of money on costumes, makeup, interior design etc.
But even when you’ve put effort into all this, there might be certain things that you haven’t considered. For example, does your video contain bright colors which will attract the eye? Are the subjects evenly spread out in your frames or do they seem to lean to the left or the right?
Understand the Basics of Composition
The composition of a frame is like the composition of a painting. Every bit of it is important. So there shouldn’t be too much space on one side and too much crowding on the other. Also you can’t be too bright on one side and too dark on the other. For example, if you’re filming two people talking, you need to make sure that they balance each other out in terms of brightness, color etc.
If you’re in doubt, pause your video and step away from it to think about the composition. You’ll get your answer.
