Innovative Filming Techniques for Educational Content

Optimizing Long-Take Lectures for Online Learning: SVG's Expert Approach 1

In late August, Skillman Video Group (SVG) collaborated once again with Hebrew at the Center to film a unique long-take lecture for an online Hebrew course.

Set against the backdrop of a majestic home known affectionately as “the castle” in Cabot Estates, this production utilized advanced filming techniques to enhance the learning experience for students nationwide.

Dual Camera Set Up

Understanding the challenges of long-take recordings, SVG employed a dual-camera setup featuring both a Canon 7D and a High-Definition Sony camera.

This strategy allowed for seamless switching between cameras, ensuring that the final product was free from errors and visually engaging.

Sound Precision

Audio clarity is paramount in educational videos to aid comprehension.

To address this, SVG used a dual-microphone system, including both lavalier and shotgun microphones, which helped in capturing clear and uninterrupted audio throughout the lecture.

Supporting the Speaker

Focus on Comfort and Performance

Long-take productions can be particularly demanding for speakers, requiring them to deliver extensive content without breaks.

SVG prioritized the comfort and needs of the lecturer by managing all aspects of the production environment—from ensuring adequate food and beverages to maintaining a comfortable temperature—allowing the speaker to focus solely on delivering the lecture effectively.

Technical Support and Expertise

With SVG’s direction and technical support, the lecturer was able to concentrate on the content without worrying about the logistics of filming.

Our team’s expertise in managing the complexities of video production ensured a smooth process and high-quality output.
