How to make videos good videos?
Me and my friends are going to make some videos this year and I was wondering if anybody has some suggestions on how to film, angles to film from, editing software suggestions (preferably free :P), music suggestion and how to edit. Also I'm looking for a new video camera so suggestions on a good cheap one (cheap so if I drop it or land on it and wreck it it's not that big of a deal).

Tips for filming snowboard videos - Snowboarding - Helium

Googled "How to film snowboarding" and that's what I got.

Yeah just dont film like your having a siezure. I would say thats a number 1 in what not to do with filming.

HD sucka
Shoot establishing scenics as well as the action. Don't shoot Butt-shots. I'm digging the new SLR's with HD capacities. Add a POV camera or two to the mix. Watch all the latest vids to deconstruct what the pros are doing and try to do it at your resort. (like shot angles, urban locations, etc.) Premiere Elements or Sony Vegas are a baseline for editing software. Do use dumb transitions to go between shots.

This really isn't the right forum to ask about advice to filming.... Hit up or for that.

Skate perception is for skateboarding media, but it's a lot busier than snowperception and it's a good place to start.

Make a narrative. Not a plot or a story but a narrative. Shoot alot of B-footage to edit to.
Also helps if you have good riding and interesting features. Too many videos of morons flailing around in a generic park.

What do you mean by narrative? And B-footage?

I think by b-footage he means b-roll, it's just footy of things other than snowboarding. So for example b-roll would be a clip of a guy undoing his bindings or a time lapse of a chair lift

Oh and you probably won't want a MiniDV or hard drive memory camcorder for filming snowboarding, they're easily damaged. They both have moving parts so if you fall on it, you'd lose all your footy and have to pay for repairs. You'll probably want something that records to solid state memory.

HF200's are great if you want HD.
