For example, people travel around to find some inspirations for their art. Some people travel around to find healing moments. Some others travel to create memories so they have something to reminiscent about later. Some people also make travel video for personal indulgent or to be shared with others.
It is so often that we get the urge to visit the place we watch from a travel video because of how amazing the video is made.
Making watch-worthy travel video
During your vacation, you can make your own travel video to be shared with others. Who knows maybe others will find some inspirations just by watching your video. However, it is also just fine if you want to make travel video for personal indigent.
Regardless of the purpose, you must want to make watch-worthy travel video. So here are some tips to realise it:
1. Know your camera’s frame rate
You can go on and on about technical stuffs when it comes to taking videos. However, we can just stick to simple things this time.
Firstly, you need to pay attention on your frame rate. This is important factor to make your video pleasant to watch. In the past, the standard video format was 24fps. However, it is highly recommended to use 60fps if you want to make watch-worthy travel video regardless of your format shooting.
This will make the motion less blurry. When you double your frame rates, taking shoots of moving target will be easier and you will be able to capture everything without blurry lines.
2. The video storage
Next tips is to pay attention on your storage. Regardless of device you use to take videos, you need to make sure that it has large storage especially when you set your standard frame video format to be 60fps. It takes up the space in your storage pretty quick.
Thus, make sure that you bring a backup so you won’t run out of space in your storage while you are happily taking high quality travel video. You can also make your own calculation though. One minute video with 1080 HD at 60fps setting is about 200MB. When you take one with 4K setting, it will be about 375MB.
3. Travel video concept or theme
It is highly recommended that you decide particular theme for your travel video to bring consistency. By choosing one particular topic, you will be able to deliver the message better.
You need to commit to the topic you picked so your video will come out great. It is hard to be consistent because it is easy to get distracted by many things throughout the trip. Consistent framing really benefits you in making travel video. It will be more interesting to watch because you can do many things later when editing.
Pay attention to the transition so you can make smooth jump from one scene to another. Also, use necessary tools to help you shoot video better such as tripods or monopods.
