My teammates have already covered the basics of Josh Davis’ presentation, so I won’t reiterate the key points and tell you something you’ve already learned. Instead, I’ll write about something that stood out to me personally.
Davis spoke about going the extra mile to get the footage that your team needs because one shot can end up making a huge difference in the final video. While I am not on the video crew for our trip, this point stuck with me. I think it is important to understand and appreciate the work of everyone on your team in order to work well with them. This appreciation gives you the patience and trust with your group members if they think something is pivotal and worth the extra work– whether it’s re-shooting, re-designing, re-writing, interviewing one more person, etc. Trusting the efforts of all your teammates will lead to a successful project.
