City Lifestyle Shooting Guide
The idea of this guide is to walk you through the steps of planning & preparing to go out and capture Lifestyle Video/Photos for a specific city. The guide below will allow you to always capture content we do not have yet and guide you through the uploading process to be edited into a final video that can be used.
Step1. Log in to Monday.com and open Monday Board - Lifestyle and City Branding to view an updated list of cities/locations we have not yet filmed. https://aerial-canvas.monday.com/boards/208375914
Step 2. Pick a city we have not captured yet, or partially captured. (refer to the status bar)
Step 3. Within that city pick a minimum of 6 different locations to film. You can use google maps or Trip Advisor to search for top attractions and things to do within that city. Below we have broken down a list of ideal places to film within most cities.
Town/City or Welcome To Sign
Nice looking homes/neighborhoods
Transportation- Trains, Trolleys, Airplanes Etc...
Dogs/People Walking Around
Recreation Areas Like Golf Clubs, Tennis Courts, Hiking Trails, Etc…
Step 4. (Required Screenshot and Post on Monday Board City Notes)
Create a storyboard/list of locations and shots you will film. Ideally, we recommend at least 5-10 photos and 4-8 Video Clips minimum at each location you choose to film.
An example of a shot list may Look similar to this. Keep it simple. You should ideally spend 30-40min at each location. The length of the final edited video will be about 3-5min long.
