When you’re starting out in video you quickly realize the importance of finding a great character and an interesting location. At our latest New York City boot-camp we met Ernest Landante.
Ernest is a communications officer and he wanted to learn to create professional videos himself rather than being dependent on news organizations to send along a camera crew to the events he was involved in.
He found a particularly good location when he was out filming in Manhattan and this is a really good example of how a great location can help make a great story. This is also a great example of how easy it is to apply our rules to video and make a compelling story. Ernest doesn't move the camera, he found a good character, and he put together a good story.
The amazing thing with our method is that each time you go out and make a story like this, you will find that you get significantly better and better each time you do it.
We look forward to seeing what else Ernest makes!
