      Do you plan each and every shot? Or do you do it as you go and figure it out in post?

      Judging by a lot of the car videos on this site, I'd say the majority of them just make it up as the go along. Which makes the "post" process a complete pain in the ass.

      Car videos are boring. if you're going to make one, be different. Do some planing and have some narrative. Oh and for the love of god, don't use a slider.

      I do a lot of "on-the-fly" shots, especially at car shows. With feature car shoots, I have an idea of what shots I want.

      I try and plan a lot of the shots, specially if it's a certain shoot.

      But if it's an event/meet it's almost impossible to plan every shot. There is so much going on, and opportunities that come and go that you need to be quick on your feet. IMO that's what makes a good videographer, someone that not only can think quick on their feet, but translate that into usable footage for post. You are not always going to have perfect lighting, you aren't always going to have a tripod, glidecam, jib, slider etc so it's important.

      just my .02 cents
