(Clearwisdom.net) Recently, I watched the video of Teacher's "Fa-Teaching Given to the Australian Falun Dafa Practitioners." I had some mixed feelings, especially in the beginning when Teacher said, "Greetings, all!" The picture focused on fellow practitioners from behind and not Teacher. There were several scenes in the middle of the video that were poorly filmed. I would like to share some thoughts with the fellow practitioners who filmed the video.

1. Planning Ahead

We should make sure to set everything up beforehand and adjust for the lighting, acoustics, and other considerations. By planning ahead, we can prevent scenarios where there is no usable shot or poor audio quality.

2. Practitioners Should Look at Things from the Standpoint of the Fa

As practitioners, no matter what we are doing, we should look at things from the standpoint of the Fa. When we are filming Teacher teaching the Fa, we should be even more meticulous, serious, and diligent. Otherwise, it is disrespectful to Teacher and Dafa.

For the first eight minutes of the video, Teacher's voice cannot be heard clearly. The translator's voice is much louder. During the lecture, there were several wide-angle shots of the meeting room that were poor. This might have been the result of a lack of planning. When Teacher said, "Greetings, all!" we hear Teacher's voice but cannot see him. We only saw the backs of some practitioners. At the end, when Teacher taught the Fa again, we could not see Teacher. Again we could only see fellow practitioners from behind. My heart was troubled as I watched these shots.

3. Respecting Teacher and Dafa, Starting with the Details

In order to ensure quality, it might be best to have two cameras rolling when Teacher is teaching the Fa. One camera can be placed in the back of the conference room for medium and wide-angle shots. A second, mobile camera can shoot close-ups and medium shots. This will give editors some choices when editing the video.

For the videos taken when Teacher taught the Fa in Guangzhou, Jinan, and Dalian before 1999, the video and audio were very clear, even though the video cameras were not as good as the ones now. From these videos, we could feel the mainland practitioners' respectful hearts towards Teacher and Dafa.

Many years have passed since then. Practitioners have become more and more mature. Especially outside China, we should have acquired much better skills in capturing Teacher's Fa lecture.
