Final presentation

Make sure your video is polished before you finally present it, or release it to the public. Learn from others’ mistakes. For instance, make sure you check the background – many people have been caught out by this before. if you are shooting the video in your own home then ensure there is nothing personal or private in the background you wouldn’t want the world (or just your co-workers) to see.

Ensure continuity if the video has been shot over several days or in several locations.

Also, if the collar is up in one shot but down in another, this will be glaringly obvious to the viewer.
