(Admins, this might be better suited for another subforum. If so please move, this relates to boardgame design/launching a game for crowd funding)

Over the weekend we shot all the footage for our Kickstarter video. I thought it would be a great idea to share what we learned with the community hoping it can help someone else prepare for their video.

You can read the blog post here:

We also compiled a "blooper/outtakes video" which can be seen here (with music):

Without music:

Let me know if you have any additional questions

Great idea guys.

Your out-takes video is very funny.

You say in your blog: "I have heard people say, use cue cards, but I hate watching videos where someone’s eyes are clearly reading what they’re saying when they say it. We thought it was a better idea to learn the lines rather than follow this method for sure."

I could not agree more.

Good luck with the Kickstarter campaign and keep us all posted

David

I got 1 minute 20 into your outtakes vid but couldn't stand the music any longer.

And now you understand why the comment of

"You shouldn't get paid to make the video - we sent you a free copy of the game"

is ridiculous.

Here is a video without the music Samuel:

Scott, I cant stand that someone would just assume a copy of their game is payment for services. If editing video professionally was so easy, everyone would do it instead of using movie maker.....

People who are providing some form of service be it video editing, design, artwork, whatever, should be payed for their services.
