Look for scene in the park that has a foreground, middleground, and background. Think of your scene like a Bruegel painting with many layers of activity but no dominating elements.
- Record in landscape mode.
- Keep your shot as steady as you can but don't use a tripod. You could even hold your breath.
- No zooming, panning, or tracking.
- Try not to talk while filming.
Expert mode: While keeping the frame still, observe what's happening to your left and right and above and below the camera. Staring at the screen for one minute can be boring.
Use the timecode indicator while filming to make your video exactly 60 seconds. Tap record, let it count up to 60, and tap again. No editing needed!
