Failing to plan

Similar to yesterday’s post about doing things right the first time, collecting footage for videos also requires careful planning. There’s only so much editing can change, and you can really feel that if you don’t get good enough footage the first time around.

What this means is that you have to have somewhat of a plan in mind before you start collecting footage. You have to have some idea of the shots you need, and also an idea of your limitations so you know what is and isn’t possible.

It takes foresight to do this, but you should also account for spontaneous inspiration when doing things that are creative. In other words, have a bare minimum of footage that you need, get that, and be on the look out for other ideas.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.

Tim.
