Organizing Your Video

Following the most basic rules of organization will make everything else you do in video streamlined and manageable. Nothing is worse than knowing you shot something important but being utterly stumped when you try to find it. Not remembering what tape has that perfect sunrise shot, for instance, or shuttling aimlessly back and forth between tapes trying to guess, is enough to keep anyone from enjoying the process.

Label your tapes. Period. There is no substitute for this rule. Label them and, after they are shot, sit down for an enjoyable romp watching them. While watching, make notes about what's on the tape using a paper log sheet, one for each videocassette. Labeling your cassettes and keeping log sheets is important if you ever hope to find material you shoot.
