MegaCon is one of the highlights of my writing year.
I’ve been attending MegaCon for GeekMom blog for the past five years and eagerly await this four day weekend event. In 2017, I kicked my post up a knotch by shooting a video that highlighted the various areas and over the top costumers I ran into.
Convention shooting can be difficult because there isn’t necessarily a story to tell but you still want to show people what goes on. I go into these events with a set list of shots I know I want and I get as many as I can at various angles. This gives me plenty of material to work with in post and during the editing process, I pick the shots that flow well with each other.
I always make a point to get some sample audio that lasts as long as my video will be so I have a smooth bit of audio to fall back on if my camera mic fails on me.
