Tutorial For Making Your Own Tax Training Videos
LocationYou will need to find a quiet place to record your teachings. Are there any noises around you that would affect the taping? Is there a barking dog nearby? Are there any other ambient noises such as air conditioning, traffic or airplanes that could be obtrusive to the audio of the video? Our ears/brain ignores sounds that microphones hear.
WardrobeWe suggest wearing professional and comfortable attire. Try to avoid wearing items of clothing that have saturated reds and thin stripes.
CameraWe suggest a camera with a video quality of at least 1080p. It is best to place the camera about 3-4 feet from you and at eye level.
BackgroundWe suggest a basic white background during taping; you can purchase a white screen online through Amazon for under one hundred dollars. View video instructions at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HW-P_-Xu7-Q
LightingThe easiest solution is to make a 3-point lighting setup. You can watch a YouTube video of how to set it up. There are also an all-inclusive set you can buy on Amazon for less than $200.
MicrophoneYou will need a clip-on lapel microphone. These are usually wireless and come with a box that connects to your video camera. Having your microphone as close as possible to your mouth will help the best. Reverberation can be a problem with audio recording. Clapping your hands will check for bad echoes. Reverb is caused by sound getting trapped between two parallel surfaces bouncing back and forth from them. Rooms with lot of different objects are usually the best as they break up the reverberation.
RecordingMake sure you know how long your video camera can record before starting. This way you won’t be interrupted in the middle of the lesson you are recording.
