I just started my own video editing business and am doing my first job for free to have something for my portfolio.
There is a coffee shop that is more then your average coffee shop it makes starbucks look like a newbie. I know the owner really well, so I am going to do a short like 30 - 60 second commercial for him.
Can you pros give me some good tips on what to do? I was thinking about setting up the tripod outside and do a soft zoom in a little bit, and then fade to the inside and film by the counter, and the two seating areas and film the customers (with their permission) and then fade to their logo and some titles.
Also thought about adding in a voice over talking about the shop and maybe run a couple words about things they have and carry like the internet access, books, and cookies.
What do you all think?
