Tips by Urban Samurai Creative

Are you planning a video shoot but not sure what to wear? Don't worry, we've got you covered. As a video production company, we understand the importance of dressing appropriately for a video shoot. Your attire can impact the overall look and feel of the video and affect how your audience perceives your brand.

Here are some tips to help you dress for your video shoot:

1. Dress for the occasion: Consider the type of video you are shooting and dress accordingly. If it's a corporate video, formal attire may be appropriate. If it's a casual video, you can go for a more relaxed and comfortable look.

2. Avoid bold patterns: Bold patterns can be distracting on camera and take away from the focus of the video. Stick to solid colors or subtle patterns.

3. Choose the right colors: When it comes to video shoots, the colors we wear can have a significant impact on the final result. Bright colors such as red, blue, yellow, and green can get crushed, making them look less vibrant and affecting the overall look of the video. Darker colors generally tend to work better in videos, as they can convey a sense of professionalism and sophistication.

4. Pay attention to accessories: Accessories can certainly enhance your overall appearance, but it's important to remember that they can also be a source of distraction. When it comes to video calls, it's best to keep your accessories simple and small in order to avoid any sound-related issues. Wearing multiple pieces of jewelry, for example, can cause them to hit against each other and create disruptive noise that can interfere with the sound quality of the video. Therefore, it's recommended to stick to minimal and non-distracting accessories that can complement your look without causing any disturbance.

5. Wear comfortable shoes: Video shoots can take several hours, and you may be required to stand for long periods. Wear comfortable shoes that you can stand and move around in comfortably.

6. Keep it simple: Remember, the focus of the video should be on you and your message, not your outfit. Keep it simple and avoid anything that can draw attention away from your message.

7. Avoid noisy material: Another important point to keep in mind while recording a video is to consider the material of your clothing. Avoid wearing rough materials, leather or down jackets as they can create unwanted noise and distract your viewers from your message. Also, it is advisable to wear light or non-starched shirts to avoid any noise that may be caused by the starched fabric. Remember, the focus of the video should be on your message, and nothing should distract your viewers from it.
