People in the streets

Choose one of the items from the list. The video is very short so you have to get all the action done in the time.
Let's look at one example
The sequence of traffic lights is well known so we will want some footage of the lights changing colours. Probably a closeup.
We want cars driving up to the lights
Cars moving off
Cars moving through
People waiting to cross
You want different angles of these things happening. It doesn't have to be the same car or the same people
This is just learning skills
The weather will be important here. It doesn't matter the weather or the time of day, but all the shots have to be the same.
A 15-30 sec video will take about upto an hour to film. You won't want to film each part once but several times and from serveral different angles. Maybe some closeup and and some far away.
Allow plenty of time. Keep the camera steady.
Take some general sound of traffic perhaps record the sound of the cars reving as they move off.
Now look at all the video taken and choose which bits you are going to use and in what order.
You ar not going to use any special sounds here just the recording you made of the traffic noise.
Assemble the video, cutting the clips to give the video more impact. Fairly short clips is what you need.
Save and publish this.
If you are happy with this then choose another video from the list and have a go at one or two or more on your own and publish these.
