I recently moved into a video producer position at Utah Valley University’s Office of Teaching and Learning department.
One of the first projects I helped produce was this sketch video about a polling solution for Universities in Canvas. The goal was to inform faculty and students in a fun way about the usefulness of CanSurvey.

Things I learned from this shoot
Coming from a two plus years of creating documentary/journalistic style videos and going into scripted content is an adjustment. I am a gorilla style filmmaker and although you can do that for these sort of scripted videos. I could have spent more time familiarizing myself with my equipment.
This was the first real production that I was using a canon c100 and some other equipment from my new job. I also learned a little more about working talent and how to direct people.
On a side note I also produced another video that was for a conference for instructional designers about CanSurvey.
I could take more time in the lighting of the scene. That I should do more scripted content.
