    1. The first stage in making your video is to write an outline brief :
      ** List the points you want to get across.
      ** Think about what can be said with pictures, interviews etc. and what must be added?
      ** Don’t intend to cover all the filming with voice-over. Voice-over is used to add meaning or information. If you understand your message then you will know which parts of your video needs voice-overs and which parts can remain clear – the pictures can tell the story.
      ** Once the filming locations and schedule are agreed, you can work on a more detailed script linking the main points from your outline brief with details of the filming.
