Tips and techniques with your LEGRIA
Sporting triumphs can make great movies. Here are some tips for good storytelling too.

Jeremy – Up in the air

Pick out narrative points to help construct your story, starting with the venue and crowds (and focussing on interesting details). When you’re filming running races, capture the start and end, including warm-ups and post-race celebrations. Shoot leading competitors at different places on the track. Include shots of scoreboards, lap charts, last lap bell and so on – they make great transitions between action shots when you’re editing.

Tip: Vary your shots – from wide to medium to tight. Avoid zooming while filming: frame the shot first then press the record button. Lots of short clips are usually better than one long clip.
