Windy Cine Productions is a Chicago video production, film production and post-production company, producing award winning commercials, corporate video and documentary style projects. A mostly serious, somewhat tongue in cheek, guide to help you think about your future marketing or promotional film. Below we have included some common things for you to consider when developing a film or video project.

Who is the audience for this video production? Is your audience already familiar with your work or are you trying to reach a new audience. Is this a one-off screening (for an event) or will this project have a shelf life of several years? Straight to DVD or CD-ROM? 2. What do you wish to accomplish with this video production? It is very hard to create a film that covers everything for all audiences.

While it might seem like a no-brainer to have one film serve multiple masters, our experience shows that it rarely pans out that way. Leave the two-fers to the late night comedians, the film and video production to us.

We made the best of a difficult situation. We put the camera out in the hallway and shot through the open door. We moved out interview subject out in front of his

Set up the monitor close to where the camera will be. Plug it in and turn it on. I use an S-Video cable to monitor the camera. Plug it into the monitor and leave the other end handy to plug into the camera. Set up the tripod and level the head. Tip - I usually set the height of the camera slightly above the talent's eye level. I feel this gives a better

Set up the stand for the boom mic. We set it slightly to the right of the talent so it doesn't make a shadow from the key light. We use a Schoeps mic and a boom pole - aim the mic at the talent's heart. Get it as close as possible to the talent. Just high enough to be out of frame. We think the Schoeps or a Sennheiser MKH 416 is the best audio solution
