“I need a 3 minute video. How much will that cost?”
At WorldWise Productions, we get this type of question a lot. Clients tell us approximately how long they’d like their video to be, and then ask us to give them a quote based on the length. That’s when I like to put on my Video Production Professor hat and take them through the following explanation.

In Review: SlingStudio, A Whole New Perspective
When I was first approached about doing a product review for SlingStudio (owned by DISH), I was pretty skeptical. What would a huge company known for delivery content know about creating content? But I digress. I come from the traditional sit behind the switcher in the truck produce and punch the show or game. You get it. Big setups, lots of presets and time. Then it dawned on me that multicamera (multi-source) is mostly the same however you approach it. It's really all about scaling your production plan to the scale of the production and what is it that you want your audience to see and experience.

Live from NAB, it’s Saturday Night Live [Editors]!
by Bradford HillSession Notes from "How SNL Produces Short Films in 48 Hours or Less" at the NAB Show. Speakers: George Winslow, Rhys Thomas, Stacey Foster, Alex Buono, Adam Epstein(Basically, the SNL Film unit produces killer shorts in less than the time it took me to write these session notes). First, they kicked off the session with a montage of some of the best recent SNL shorts, including ‘Red Flag’, “Sopranos Diaries” and the “Real Housewives of Disney”. See More Here: http://www.rhyst.com/filter/snlThen they showed my personal favorite, the Louie CK parody “Lincoln.”How many of you would have guessed that happened in the wake of Sandy? More to come on that later.

How to Direct Non-Professional Actors
We all want to work on films and commercial productions where we have the budget and the creative that allows for casting calls, talent agents and professional actors to deliver inspired performances. But in reality many creative concepts these days call for "real talent," another way of saying using real people vs. professional actors. After years of experience working with and without professional actors as talent, I have found that despite having non-pros as actors, you can still evoke great performances. In fact, when a good directing job is achieved, you may find the real-person performance is the most authentic, from-the-heart acting on camera. And if anything, directing non-professionals is great practice in a more forgiving environment for your directing skills.

Top 10 Tips to Keep in Mind When Producing a Corporate Video
Producing corporate videos is a means of driving revenue and telling stories that is still the backbone of many businesses worldwide. There is often the need to show new employees what they will be doing on the job, produce company profiles that have a mission statement and proposition or create a slick one-off video to highlight a new product or service. Broadcast and online commercials are two of the ways in which corporations convey their image to potential customers, and let them know about their services. Event documentation videos can give the viewer an exciting first-person view of a large trade show, or other informational conference. These are just a few of the ways in which companies can reach out to the world, but when you are creating content like this, there are plenty of mistakes you can make along the way.

The RØDECaster Pro: Podcasting for Everyone
As a video producer, you know the difference between shooting a one-person interview and shooting two or more subjects. With multiple subjects, by the time you add more lights, cameras, audio gear, and background setup, you might as well be building a mini-television studio.

In a nutshell, SlingStudio is a complete professional multi-camera solution in a backpack. All of the tools provided for our review fit neatly into one regular size backpack. Of course, if you are using full-size cameras and tripods that might make for a pretty big backpack.
