Video Project Resources


When planning your video project, consider elements including video (which shots) and audio (native to the video, voiceover narration, background music, and/or sound effects). Refer to our Storyboarding post for templates to assist with brainstorming and scripting.

Capturing footage

Consider our Video Capture Best Practices handout for recommendations to make recording a success.

Plan a variety of shots, using different angles and distances to record your subject. See our Identifying Shots handout that highlights various shots in Julie Larick’s storyboard and final APEX Fellowship two-minute video.
