Preparing video for network broadcast
on Apr 1, 2006 at 6:56:48 pm

Hello
I run a small video production company and we were hired to do some "B-roll" footage for a client that is going to be distributed via newswire to all of North America. We are a small company that has only done training and promo videos until now. My question is: what do I need to include on te tape for broadcast distribution? I have heard that you need 1 minute of bars & tone, anything else? Or do I just put in the bars and tone and then launch right into the interview/b-roll footage from there?

Please help if you can

Thanks in advance
MR

Since its B-Roll and you were not given any specific instructions...

Bars & Tone- (30 to 60 sec.)

Slate- with Title of shot/event, date recorded or edited, and running time.
(and YOUR contact info, if you like)

Program material- (B-Roll)



There are as many ways of doing this as there are "opinions".

Without any specifics, just do it.

Also, think about adding a full-screen CG over a color background, describing what you're going to see.

It can be really simple. Let's say you're shooting before the Indianapolis 500: "B-Roll: Gasoline Alley 1:38", "B-Roll: Time Trials 2:14", "B-Roll: Pit Row 1:46", "Interview: Michael Andretti 2:27". You get the idea.

Don't forget to split out the sound: voice over and sound bites on one channel, nat sound on the other channel. Unless told otherwise, limit yourself to two channels.

Have fun.
