There are many considerations and best practices to video production.
** Information sources are based on best practices established by IOWG and video recording advice originates from 2018 SITT conference, Planning an Instructional Video Project presented by Jeremy Poulos.
An A/V script is a great way to plan your video. It is simply two columns where on the left you describe the scene you are recording, and on the right, you describe what audio features you intend to include, like narration, voice-over, music, or special effects.
A template has been created for you to download and utilize if you would like.
Some definitions for your template:
Full shot – public distance, whole body is in shot and often a good starting place.
Medium shot – Part of the subject is in shot, social distance
Medium close up shot – The subject’s face is in most of the shot
Close up – the most intimate shot and should not be abused or stay too long. This is where the face is in the entire shot and good for points of emphasis.
Eye Level – typical place to record people, where the camera is at the same level as the eyes.
Low Angle – called the “hero shot” where the camera looks up to the subject.
Canted or Dutch Angle – camera is diagonal to subject.

The ideal option is to find images or music in the Public Domain, where they can be freely used and modified into a video.
Wikimedia Commons is a good place to find Public Domain and Creative Commons images which are clearly labeled with each image (be sure to pay attention to the Creative Commons license and how you can use it).
Free Music Archive provides music you can use with video and explains Creative Commons rules on using music for videos.
like iMovie but higher compatibility with Windows and Linux.
In some cases you may need to record video or images from the computer:
