At first, take a camera and go to outside. And doing some works step by step which I describe below…

  • Record a part of video. Just three to five minutes, no more. And it will be everyday and of course quote in your daily Film Making log book.
  • Never shaking your camera. Firstly, may be you fell in some problem but try to don’t shake camera. Once you will success.
  • When you take something in your camera, your movement stay still. If you don’t do this work, try to do that. Which is catch in your camera, try to understand there viewfinder in your eye with camera’s lance.
  • Now carefully watch your recorded video just one time use some times, no more again.
  • After finishing this work, now edit this video and catch just two minutes.

And now record some quotes in your log book which you done before.

This is your first step of Video Exercise. Now I am going to write second step of video exercise.

Now, you study of characters which characters you catch in your video camera. How to do that?
Actually it is no more industrious, just need some times.

  • Firstly you search your edge shooting spot. Example, a shooting house, or a public park or like one.
  • Record some video in two different side for each character.
