Here are some example videos made by people at MIT that approximate the range of subject matter and production styles appropriate for the MIT Tech Video Showcase. The inclusion of the following clips does not necessarily mean that they are deemed exemplary or should be used as blueprints. Rather, if you need a jumping-off point, take a look.
- A "Profile" example: MIT Vehicle Design Summit
- Another "Profile" example: MIT ASSIST (machine sketch interpretation)
- Yet another "Profile" example: 2007 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize Winner Nathan 'Nate' Ball's invention
Note: clip is silent
- One last "Profile" example: Mildred Dresselhaus
especially "The influence of Rosalind Yellow"
- A "How Stuff Works" example: from Biological Energy Interest Group
- A "How Stuff Works" example: Mousetrap
Note: When capturing video images, pay attention to the orientation of both the camera and the image. In playback, you could have difficulty in turning it to the correct orientation. (By the way, does anybody know how to do this? When we tried, we could turn the image but not recapture the audio file. Let us know.)
- An example of "Just for Fun": I/O brush
- Another example of "Just for Fun": MIT Museum's 2006 Friday After Thanksgiving (FAT) Chain Reaction
- Another example of "Just for Fun": MIDAS (MIT Dorm Automation System - Party Mode)
- One more example of "Just for Fun": Walk through the Stata Center
Note: You don't need a video camera to make movies. This video was made from a sequence of still images shot with a digital camera.
