Tip #1 You don’t need any special equipment – just a smart phone with a video camera.
Tip #2 Encourage staff to film things as they do them. Help them to develop a mindset of creating training for future staff.
Tip #3 Do a rough and ready plan of what things you need to show in the video to make sure you capture them all.
Tip #4 If you have a person speaking to camera, write some teaching points on a piece of paper and stick in on the wall near the camera to prompt them on things to say.
Tip #5 Don’t face the camera to the sun or your subject will be in the shade and you won’t be able to see what’s happening.
Tip #6 Watch out for distracting background sounds like traffic, music, washing machines.
Tip #7 Film in landscape not portrait – its easier on the eye.
Tip #8 You are not trying to win any academy awards so no need to worry about making a big Hollywood production.
