The creation of the video content is usually completed through a process known as video production. In one way or the other, the video production process may be similar to the film making process. However, there may exist some differences. One of the differences between the two processes is that the video production process involves recording the images digitally as contrasted to the film stock. Usually, the process of video production entails three stages. These are the pre-production, production and the post production.
All the planning activities are included in the pre-production stage. All the activities that are covered during planning are those which are undertaken before the filming could begin. The planning activities may include the writing of the scripts, scheduling and the planning of the logistics that may be needed. The same also includes any other duty that may be administrative. The next stage is the production. The actual content of the video is created in this stage What may entails the content of the video may be images or moving images. The term videography may be used to refer to this process. The third stage is the post production stage. This stage entails the combination of the various video clips that have been created. The process of combining is usually selective so as to create the best content. In the video production process, the ultimate product is actually created in this stage. This product is the one which then tells the story or gives a communication of the intended message. An event such as a live setting may be utilized for the purpose of communicating the intended message or the same may be communicated later.
During the video production process, a number of electronic medias may be used. The SD cards, solid state storages and the flash storages are good example of such media. Camera is the main electronic media used for the video production. So as to distribute the video content after the video production process, a number of formats are used. The Moving Pictures Experts Group-MPEG and the Audio Video Interleave-AVI are good examples of such formats that may be used.
There are different types of video that may be produced through the video production process. The most common types of video may include the TV production, Corporate videos, Marketing videos, and the Event videos. The making of a video may be stimulated by a number of reasons. For example, the event video will be used for the purpose of capturing the memories of a particular event. An example of an event may be a sport event or a wedding occasion.
