  1. You use too many transitions

    • 99% of any video/show/movie is “Hard Cut”

    • Transitions should be used for a purpose (Show passage of time, indicate a new scene, create a “feeling” or intended effect

    • Dissolve, Dip to black, 

    • This is why angles and shots are important. Multiple angles and continuity allows for smoother visual shot transitions. 

    • ( Bonus, when cutting try to pay attention to “eye trace”)

  2. You use too many montages

    • Montages are often used as a crutch. 

    • It is much easier to put a bunch of clips together with cool music than it is to craft a story with a good flow and pacing

    • Get enough shots to tell the story visually, then get enough dialogue to tell it verbally,

    • Break up montages with talking/dialogue

    • Montages should also be used purposefully (to show passage of time, progress, growth, to speed through something monotonous, get from place to place)

I talk to guys all the time that are not happy about how their videos turn out after they are done with them and they reach out to me see why. Here are some reasons why I think your videos suck....

1. You do not know how to properly run your camera with the right settings
    1. Flip it to auto and run and gun (this will never end well0
    2. At the very least learn to run your camera with manual focus but we recommend full manual
2. You do not understand how to frame things
    1. You dont understand how to frame….
        1. People
        2. animals
        3. motion
        4. multiple people
        5. cut aways
        6. emotion
        7. wide shots
        8. tight shots
        9. angles
3. You aren’t producing the talking or getting any talking at all
    1. This is something that a lot of the “bigger” productions dont do well...

Brock White is a client but more importantly awesome friend to us here at RTP. He is an extremely successful business owner based out of Phoenix Arizona. Brock owns Rowley White RV where they specialize in selling toy hauler RVs to hunters, campers, and sand dune enthusiast. On this trip, Ryer and Caleb got to go out to the dunes of Southern California to create some content for Rowley White and see what the dune life is all about. The main focus of this podcast is business. How Brock runs his business, how he finds employees, what he is looking for in a person, and all the ins and outs that have made him a huge success.


In our opinion there are 3 types of content (at least what we can produce) Long, short, and micro content. We work in all of these time ranges. On this episodes we explain the difference and how they are produced from our point of view.

We thought it would be a good idea to record our latest pre-production session live for the podcast. It is scattered and in depth but I think it may do some of you some good. Also you will get to see this project come to life in the next few weeks!!
