Choosing a videographer

 TV shows have stories, so do feature films, songs, commercials, even documentaries; and stories are illuminated with pacing so that they can move along steadily and surely. Here’s something worth noting:  A story doesn’t magically appear when a film crew or a solo videographer shows up and shoots some nice looking footage. A story emerges when a story-teller imagines it. And this is my advice for choosing a videographer. Choose your story-teller by reviewing his/her videos (not the highlights). You’ll be able to see if the film has structure that holds your interest. You’ll be able to see if the pacing keeps you focused or if it drags because of long and drawn out “B roll shots of flowers and cakes and wedding rings and shoes and never-ending scenic shots.
