What I learned from this video in order to get good at video production:



Smash the "like" button.


I joke. Great video guys.

On the Shutter Speed: a good rule of thumb for the most natural motion blur is to have a shutter speed that is double your frame rate. So if you are shooting at 24 fps, then set your shutter to 1/50; 30 fps = 1/60; 60 fps = 1/120; 120 fps = 1/240.

If you are shooting something with a lot of fast movement and you don't want it to be blurry, then increase your shutter speed further. Keep in mind, though, the faster (higher denominator) your shutter speed, the less light you'll get so you will need to compensate for this by opening up your aperture, raising your iso, or increasing the light of the scene.

If you're going to bring a camcorder to the conversation please bring a real 4k camcorder not a simple one the same you talk about mirrorless camera I just dont see it to be fair since Sony and canon has good 4k camcorder

Finally got to take advantage of this video and watch it in it's entirety. This video is worth $$$... The fact that you guys take the time to throw this much hands on practical training to struggling worship creatives is a blessing. It's in encouraging to see that I'm using a lot of this already, but I definitely gained some serious new tools. Thank you!

I love that he is talking about basic things that I've never heard before! Like lenses are measured from front to back in millimeters!

Love it! So much good info here. Definitely a good place to start instead of texting your patient boss all these questions separately...

Jakey, My mind was blown when you showed the difference from no EQ and with EQ. I need to learn how to do those adjustments!

Excellent video - I like the Lumix's that you covered. Also I didn't know you could sync vid/audio with FCP either. I have fallen in love with this software over the last 2 months. FCP has my vote over DaVinci if you are editing in a MacOS environment.

Great video, my favorite part was the "Smash that like button" lol you should do it in every video at random times

I'm very knowledgeable of the subject matter already, but I like your audio tips; it was definitely worth the watch. Thanks a bunch.

I have learned so much and thank you. I just had to share it with someone else so we have an idea what to do for videoconferencing .

Thank you very nice training.
Would be interesting to see what impact cabling/networking has the set-up e.g. capture cards, adapting/converting video.
a) live recording all cameras & audios
b) webinars
Difference in performance when I am using NDI / SDI / HDMI.

Perhaps idea for a next video : studio/church cabling and networking

Thanks guys for all the guidance!! I do have a question could you possibly do an informative video on church stage lighting? What you recommend and also the most affordable options. Any information would help loads!

Out of curiosity, what was up with the mic/editing on the video software tutorial piece? Sounded like a phaser...

Great Vid Guys as always. What are your thoughts on APC cameras. I currently use the GH5 and EOS R for my business but I've loaned my church the canon 80D with the 55-250 glass and it seems to work great.
