How To Get The BEST DANG BROLL from Matti Haapoja
- Plan your shoot: Don’t show up on set without a plan for your b-roll. Ask yourself what kinds of shots you’re going to get and what gear you’re going to need to get them.
- Coverage: Get all sorts of angles and shot sizes, from wide angles to extreme close-ups. Getting plenty of coverage will save your buns once you get into post.
- Be creative: Shooting b-roll is a great opportunity to get creative with your cinematography, so try new compositions, camera movements, etc.
- Take your time: Don’t underestimate the importance of b-roll. It can make an otherwise dull piece really interesting, so don’t slack off when shooting it.
- Make time for it: Again, b-roll is important, so don’t save it for the last few minutes of your shoot to capture it.
