Video on the Slide – A New Fireside Tool
Fall is already in full swing… the leaves are changing, natural beauty is abundant and the holiday season will be upon us before we know it. The next three months will be filled with opportunities to capture great video moments.
So what can you do to make those moments stand out? I’m a big fan of incorporating a Slider to make video extraordinary. A slow and steady movement in any direction adds an elegant, high-end quality to otherwise ordinary shots.
Here are three tips on using a Slider:
- The Slider works best when you use is on wide shots. It’s quite difficult to keep a tight shot framed and in focus while moving.
- Keep something in the foreground. This gives perspective and accentuates the movement.
- Slow and steady is key. Moving too quickly or at irregular intervals will only distract the viewer.
Never be afraid to incorporate a new skill. You can’t have too many tools in your toolbox. Be sure to ask Fireside Production what a Slider can do for your next video!
