Ready to learn some great things about Social Media videos? We’re out to find the right middle ground for a home video recording studio for creating social media videos, like training videos. This is Post #2 in the Series. See Post #1.
We’re professional LinkedIn trainers with high standards that we inherited from our partners Splash Media (Dallas TX). Unfortunately, we don’t always have the studio as an option when we need to shoot.
When it’s just not possible to pay $1,000 or more per finished minute elsewhere (a lot of minutes is a lot of money), you have to look at alternatives. A Flip camera or iPhone isn’t what we’re talking about in this instance. That’s a different project and one worth doing as well.
We covered the general ideas behind the project in a previous post on December 29, 2012.
♦ Baseline is a $500 home studio with Flip Camera, basic lighting
♦ Budget for new studio is $2,000 with DSLR Camera with LED lighting, external microphones
♦ Basics, strategies, techniques and even insider tricks
This video and post shows what a $500 “home” studio looks like and where it can be improved upon. It is shot with a Flip Mino HD camera in 720P High Definition. Notice the issues with lighting throughout the tour.
Please follow us on this journey that resembles upgrade from a Standard Stereo (say Harmon Kardon or Technics) to a 5.1 Surround Sound Home Theater (a la Bose). There is still room to grow with better solutions and higher budgets. In this case we’re aiming for middle ground – not too this and not too that. Call it Medium Well.
We are seeking sponsors and partners for this project. Please contact us here. We’ll be guided Tristan Pelligrino and the super team at 522 Productions in Washington DC.
