Abstract [en]


This  report  describes  the  production  of  a  number  of  short  instructional  videos  in  cooking.  The  project  was  a  thesis  project  for  Högskoleprogrammet  till  medieproducent,  which  is  a  two-­‐year  program  for  media  production  at  Umeå  University.  

Video  production  took  place  at  the  request  of  SVT  (Swedish  television)  in  Umeå.  The  videos  are  meant  to  be  used  on  the  cooking  portal  SVT  plans  to  launch  in  the  fall  of  2015.  A  chef  was  hired  to  carry  out  the  procedures  to  be  filmed,  and  the  student  was  assigned  to  shoot  and  edit  everything.  

Before  production  started,  cooking  instructionals  on  Youtube  were  analyzed,  to  create  an  idea  of  how  such  videos  typically  look  today.  The  results  of  this  analysis  were  then  used  in  the  production,  but  they  were  not  governing  in  the  design,  since  specific  requests  from  others  involved,  and  specific  conditions  of  the  project  existed.  Also  the  student's  own  visions  influenced  the  outcome.  Another  preparation  was  to  set  up  various  options  for  the  design  and  assessing  what  these  different  options  would  mean  for  the  result.  

Shooting  took  place  in  the  chef's  kitchen,  during  three  days.  Each  video  was  filmed  from  two  angles,  to  facilitate  cutting  therebetween.  The  material  was  edited  with  the  aim  to  convey  both  clarity  and  good  aesthetics.    

The  experience  resulted  in  recommendations  for  further  work,  in  the  form  of  a  manual  of  how  to  produce  such  cooking  tutorials.  The  manual  describes  what  equipment  is  needed  and  how  to  work  on  set.  Then  the  editing  process,  including  appropriate  lengts  of  the  videos,  is  presented.  The  manual  also  contains  recommendations  for  how  much  time  is  needed  when  producing  a  certain  number  of  short  instructional  videos  of  this  kind.
