First let’s see what equipment is absolutely essential to shoot a video with an excellent result:
It’s time to shoot the video: the tips listed below can be very useful to save time and effort, while nailing the best result.
Once you have followed the checklist everything should be okay; now it’s up to your teacher collecting all the clips and send it to the editor, but there are a few things you should do to help your teacher:
FOR THE TEACHERS:
Good organization is key: please collect all the clips of the students you are responsible for, do not send the materials in different tranches. Once collected and checked the clips, make sure you have all the photo and video releases documents signed and scanned.
Make a folder with two subfolders inside: in the first one please put all the documents (name “nation_release”; ex. Italy_release), in the second put the video-clips of the students (name “nation_epvideo”; ex. Italy_epvideo); now you can finally zip the folder and send with wetransfer.
Before publishing the videos it is important to be sure that you have all the releases signed and filled out in each of their sections.
Using the linked pdf file you can have the students fill in the releases even at home, completely digitally (being able to sign them with applications such as Adobe Sign or similar), and then send them to you via e-mail. If you are printing hard copies, you will still need to send them in the form of scans once completed and signed.
