Creating Simple Mobile Video

Here's a quick script you can use to get started.

This script relies on you editing several clips together later.

If you'd like to do it all in one-take, omit the stop/pause steps and just keep rolling – you can edit out the messy parts later, or leave them in for a more informal look.

Tips:

  • Relax
  • Pan the camera slowly
  • Have fun! 

Feel free to edit the example script below to best fit your needs and situation.
