Covering conferences is a popular assignment for videographers in Sydney. Many corporates always have conferences and events that they want to be documented by professionals. If you are taking up a job as a videographer for conference events, you should know that some of the things you might be expected to do are as follows.
Doing a Promo Video
The promo videos always come before the main event. The videographer is expected to do a short video about what is expected at the conference, and why it is important to attend it. The essence is to get people interested so that many people show up for the conference. While doing a promo video, you may have to talk to some of the stakeholders so that they can explain what the conference is all about.
Documenting the Event
This is always considered to be the most crucial part of the videography project when covering conferences. You need to document the little details while focusing on the major event. If you are videoing a big conference and many things are happening on the sideline, you should come with a team that will ensure that nothing important is left out during the documentation process. Some of the things that you should focus on are the speeches, ceremonies such as when someone is being awarded, and other details that will complete the event.
Streaming the Videos
There are instances when the conference organisers will need you to help them stream the videos. If there are people who are following online, you may be required to microblog the videos or stream them to the online community.
Editing and Packaging
Once you are done with the documentation, the next step is to edit, package the content and then send it to the client. As a rule, before you start any project, you should have a discussion with the client on what they expect so that you capture everything.
