We shoot extreme. How to shoot a video?

It would seem that there is nothing complicated in shooting a video. It would seem much more important how the rider rides, how cleanly he does the tricks and how complicated they are, than how all this is shot. But in fact it turns out that when it comes to skating it goes on to watch the same skating on the screen, those who have at least some idea of ​​how to shoot video and how to do the editing win. It is they who have the most views on the Internet and it is they who are the first to receive sponsors. Why? Because thousands ride, and dozens know how to remove them.

The first thing to understand before taking the camera to the ski slope or to the skate park is who the future video will be addressed to. To a large extent, how to shoot a video will depend on this particular factor. There are several options.

The first option, the easiest – to see for yourself how the ski looks from the side. Here, of course, there are no special requirements on how to shoot video, you can just give the camera to a friend, or put it on a tripod and shoot everything. But even this material can then be brought to a full-fledged video, if you take the trouble to make video editing.

The second option, which is more complicated, is to post the captured video on the site so that it can be watched, increasing the popularity of the site itself and the number of views on YouTube. And, of course, the goal of such a video should be to show the best side of the riders of this particular team. Knowing how to shoot a video of such a plan is much more important, since it is not enough to watch it from an analytical point of view. Video for general use should be interesting to watch even for those who do not ride, and therefore there must be a drive in it, there must be a fan, there must be not only skating, but also the atmosphere of the place where everything happens, as well as showing the characters of the main characters. This option also includes shooting various sporting events, festivals and contests.

The third option is how to make a video to find sponsors. This business is not at all simple, and without proper experience, it’s better not to take it on our own, but to attract professionals. You don’t have to pay for this, there are serious pros who are tasked with popularizing certain sports in general, and if the riders ride well, they can be removed for free. One such crew includes the FOX FILM PRODUCTION team. They specialize in ski surveys, water extreme sports, as well as on the filming of various “asphalt” disciplines (longboarding, skateboarding, bike).

The fourth option is how to make a video for the sale of instructor services by advertising them through a public video. This task can be called the most difficult, because its solution requires a comprehensive approach, including a wide range of approaches from creating videos that have “viral” properties (so that people can send links to it to each other by mail and VKontakte), to search engine optimization of a site or channel Youtube

This option is complex, it cannot be pulled by hard-won professionals alone, since only riders and instructors who know what they are selling can know how to shoot a video in this way, and the idea should be born in close contact with the director and the group who know how to sell it and with a producer who knows how to distribute it and convey it to consumers.
