In addition, in a group exercise, the participants have been put from the perspective of the viewers and make a list of fundamental questions which helped them in developing the content of the video. After this step the group have been introduce to the most important elements that a filmmaker has in her/his hand for the production of a video such as images, voice off, dialogues, music, fades, captions, speed change etc. Finally, practical issue for the organisation of a video production have been listed. Among others how to divide the team during the shoot, what’s the tasks of each role, which equipment every role needs and a general list of item, which should not be forgotten during the day of the shooting.
