22 Great Ways To Make Your Home Movies A Lot Better

Your home videos don't have to be boring. Now that everyone has great inexpensive cameras, you can make them a lot more interesting by keeping this simple guide in mind: 22 good ideas to frame, stage and light your videos.

It is based on the 22 panels that always work, a guide by comic book master Wally Wood.

I spent most of my teen years writing and drawing fanzines, and Wood was one of my favourite artists, along with Kirby, Steranko, Bernet, Eisner and too many others to list here. Their work - which used very simple formulas such as these 22 panels - influenced many modern artists and movie directors. It's not complicated to assimilate and use. It just requires some quick thinking, even while capturing candid moments, but I can guarantee you that it will make your home movies a whole lot better.

And don't worry. It won't make your home movie look like The Third Man, but your friends and family will be a lot less bored watching them.
