Taking a trip? Here’s how to coordinate with a video editing professional to make videos from your footage while you’re abroad.
How to Plan Travel Video Editing While Abroad
You’ve spent a lot of time and effort planning your big trip overseas. As the crowning touch, you want to document your trip in video to share with your friends and social network while the trip is going on. You could put something simple together during the trip, but you’d love to present something more polished and professional that really captures the excitement and adventure you’ll be experiencing.
To create a travel video of this scope you’ll need the services of video editing professionals, working to create finished videos while you’re on your trip. But it won’t be enough just to hire someone and ship footage to them. You’ll need to coordinate with your video editing professionals in a number of ways, before and during your journey to put together the high-quality video you’re looking for.
Your first steps in coordinating your efforts begin before the trip starts. Video editing professionals will want to have a clear idea of the scope of the trip – how long you’ll be gone; how much footage you’ll be sending them, and how many videos you’ll want to produce. Sit down with them and go over your itinerary and discuss your ideas. Experienced video editing professionals will often have some excellent suggestions on how you can tell your story through the video footage you shoot and the organization of the different videos they’ll produce.
