The following is the first episode of a new weekly video series that we're launching in conjunction with our friend and host, Stephen Schweikart of Vscreen.com.  Our goal with this new series is to expand the instructional content that we offer to not only focus on best practices for video marketing, but to also offer help with basic and advanced tips for planning, shooting, and editing video. After all, it's pretty difficult to market a video if you don't know how to produce one.

The show, which we're dubbing "ReelRebel," will covering everything from beginner’s basics (This one's pretty basic) - to advanced tutorials and techniques for those more experienced video pros - to product reviews for both hardware and software.

Why ReelRebel?  Here's what Stephen had to say about it,

“Our videos will be a bit unconventional…viewers can expect to see a blend of humor and satire in how we present the material. We believe that adding a different twist will not only engage viewers more effectively…but mix a little fun into the process as well”.

ReelRebel Episode #1) The Basics of Video Lighting

Note: Keep in mind that this is our first episode and as always, we want your feedback so that we can do our best to continually improve upon what we do each week.  If you have any suggestions for this show, please let us know in the comments area below.

    Great video! One thing to look out for when shooting in natural light though is that - as it's not controlled - it can change quickly, and you might not even pick up on it until you watch back the footage. Then there might be shots with lighting that doesn't match. Something to especially look out for during the Golden Hour as light changes quickly :)

       @MadeleineButler Good point... changes in that lighting will make it harder if you are trying to edit together two segments that happened at different enough times from each other.
