How to Shoot Video That Doesn't Suck

Got Questions?

Question about anything video related?  Submit questions here!  I’ll post your questions and offer video advice in future blog posts.

Have a question about your work? The more specific your question is, the more likely I am to be able to turn it into a great answer.  A request to “critique this video” probably won’t make it to the site, but a question like “How can I improve my storytelling in the part of my video where the grandmother pets the cat?” might.  Not because cats are cute (as are grandmothers) but because this lets me talk specifically about storytelling, which will be useful to other readers too.

If you have a great, specific question, submit them along with your video’s URL. Videos must be both yours and publicly posted (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) Apologies in advance if I can’t reply personally or use your question.

I’m also looking for publicly posted videos you really like. Send along a link to the latest commercial, music video or viral event and why you love it, and I’ll post it if it I think it creates a “teachable moment.” (like this one)
