The One Tip You Need to Know To Make Great Travel Videos

by brian on October 22, 2010

One of the things I missed out on my round the world trip was producing video. I had plenty of photos, but did the occasional video only AFTER I came home. My old ThinkPad was not equipped to handle editing video and I didn’t think I could pull off quality video. What could I have done differently? What can you do to avoid my mistakes?

I recently had a chance to sit down with John of to talk about travel video and how you can produce excellent video, without expensive equipment. John formerly worked in television, so you’ll want to hear what he has to say.

The #1 tip – the SOUND of your video is just as important, maybe even more so than the video itself. John and I discuss this and more. Click, watch and enjoy!

Loved this video and the tips – I have so much back video that I wanted to make into a movie but the old Windows Movie Maker was so terrible that I just have it sitting on a hard drive. You’ve motivated me to give editing a go again :)

The Mac fanboys (and girls) would say get a Mac to the cries of Windows sucks for video editing and they have a point to a certain extent. It isn’t necessarily easier on the Mac but the software is on the machine already. You can get a high end video editor for Windows that has a high end price tag or a cheaper one that does not work very well. I’ve tried the low end ones, not with a lot of success. What are people using on Windows for video editing these days???
