Once again, I admit my ignorance to the world as I show the easiest, most obvious way to film a craft/art tutorial from above! Since I posted this video, I’m feeling much better about myself for overlooking this solution as there appears to be many who found it helpful! AND… if you search YouTube for ways to get this job done, you’ll see some crazy contraptions out there trying to accomplish the same thing!
Key things to remember:
1) Your setup needs to be stable so your camera is safe.
2) Your work area needs to be clear of obstructions so there’s a clear view AND so you don’t accidentally knock your camera over!
3) And to make it move from a “Good Tutorial” to a “Great Tutorial,” make sure the finished video is presented from the perspective of the teacher!
