What is B-Roll and why it’s so important?
This video captured my attention because b-roll really is extremely important when it comes to film-making. Sometimes we get so caught up in the main focus and the actors but fail to provide environment, detail, artistry and the beauty around us.
Instead of having to explain to the audience where you are, what time it is, what is around; show them. Use all the visuals around you to help tell your story in a more creative and visual appealing way.
This video sums up and explains b-roll but also provides practical ways it is implemented into a video and the overall out comes. It’s a great reminder and expresses the importance of b-roll, check it out and learn more.
