Filming Slate Shots


Well-known member
Shooting Slate Shots aren't in my wheelhouse, but I've been asked to take it on by a recent bride. I created her wedding video and she wants to work with me again. The money is good, so I'm seriously considering it. Do you have any tips for pulling this off?

Since this will be a shot focus on the head, minimal props can only be used. You can arrange a background that suits the wedding theme with decent lighting.

The actor or actress might want it done a certain way. I'd have an idea of what to do, but let them lead if they seem to want a certain feel for their shoot.

Thanks for the tips. She brought her agent and he definitely had his own idea of how the end result should look. I was basically just there to get the shot.

If she has an agent, make sure you get your contract written up and signed before you start anything else.

Don't worry, you got this!
