How To Be A Legal Videographer

The Legal Videographer

A legal videographer is one who produces legal videos that can be used as evidence or just simply as illustrations or animations for a courtroom or hearing. The videos produced can also be used for forensic purposes as well as being a sort of medium for witnessing a signing of contracts or wills. They are oftentimes referred to by other names such as Forensic Videographers, Video Court Reporters, or Court Videographers. To sum up, legal videography is used for documentaries, fraud evidence, wills, proof of damages, courtroom presentations, reconstructing incidents, etc.

Basic Knowledge Requirement

You don't really need to have a certificate to become a legal videographer. However, it's a good idea to have one anyway. You can take courses that touch on videography or editing, but that's up to you. You certainly would need to have knowledge in this field if you really want to be successful in this career. Having an education in criminology or forensics is also a recommendation.

Equipment You Will Need

To start, you'll need to buy equipments that'll help you in this endeavor. You need to get a video-camera (either film or digital, whichever works for you), a tripod, hand-held lights, monitors, and editing equipment. The last two mentioned can be solved with one simple stroke if you choose to go digital, and that's by buying a computer that's installed with good software that allows you to edit footage or clips.
