Creating an intermediate video
An intermediate level of video production involves a little more complexity. These videos benefit from production planning and basic editing to achieve the desired outcomes. Your planning might involve developing a script and a storyboard to assist in the production process, and you can edit using programs such as Camtasia, Windows Live Movie Maker, or iMovie. This level of video creation may target an internal and external audience.
