23 Research Things – 21: Managing Video and Audio

Some additional tips:

Do a test recording to make sure sound and lighting are ok (ambient noise will come across much louder than it seems, because our brains can block it out).

Use good file management at the editing phase. If you’re making videos that have a combination of different files including audio, images, video clips etc, have a folder for each project to help keep things together. It feels easier at the time to dump things into your “Pictures” “Downloads” folder etc, but it costs more time in the long run hunting for the things when you want to use them.

A Google search for “royalty free music” can find lots of background music. There’s heaps of freely available audio, image and footage out there.

    Again, some great tips. File management….ah! Had an encounter with poor file management the other day and it took so much time. Can you imagine if you doing a PhD and didn’t have that worked out?
