Record short clips that show signposts and street names. They’re a fantastic way to show your viewers (and remind yourself) of where you’ve been.
A video diary is a great way to add flavour to your holiday movie. Every day of the trip record yourself, or a family member, describing their favourite or funniest moments.
The zoom on your camcorder allows you to get closer to the action, but over-using it will make your video look less professional. Try not to zoom in and zoom out of the same shot – this is known as tromboning (after the musical instrument).
