This week I would like to start a four part series on creating a video ethical will. This week’s installment is going to focus on what you need to learn about before you start filming your ethical will. The remaining three parts will deal with screenwriting, filming and editing.
This week’s lesson is going to be on what you need to know to create a video spiritual ethical will. To start with you need to understand what an ethical will is. Ethical wills are statements, letters or creative expressions about your moral philosophies on life. They are typically addressed to specific people who are important to you, like your children, siblings or colleagues. These wills are not legal documents as they do not address legal issues related to your estate. However, they can be attached to your last will and testament.
The second thing that you need to know about before you can start filming is the process of filmmaking. To start with you will need a video camera, a tripod, lighting equipment, a microphone, editing software, a computer and an assistant. Next you will need to learn how to operate your video equipment. To do this you will probably want to play around with your equipment to learn about the proper focal length for your camera, the amount of extra lighting that you will need and how to use the editing and special effects features of your video equipment.
Workshops on ethical wills can be a great place to start when you are ready to write your ethical will script. Do you know of a workshop that you would like to recommend? Post the information below.
