Recently, we gave you some tips for dealing with non-professional talent in videos. As an indie videographer, you’re likely to find yourself in this situation on a fairly regular basis. Whether you’re relying on local theater actors for your fiction movie or taping a commercial for a small business, you’re always going to be working with people who aren’t used to being in front of a camera – and non-pro “actors” can always be a little bit unpredictable.
Most videographers will agree that one of the toughest situations for dealing with non pro “actors” is a wedding. You’re dealing with a large number of people who don’t know how to handle themselves on camera and, unlike a scripted movie or commercial, they are free to say and do whatever they please. There’s no telling what they might decide to do at the drop of a hat. Emotions run high at weddings and, quite often, alcohol is flowing freely, so you always have to expect the unexpected.
All it takes is a little preparation to make sure everything goes smoothly – and award-winning. Videomaker‘s Wedding Videography DVD will make sure you can handle every curve ball the big day might throw at you.
