Here are some things to consider and prepare for as soon as you decide to film a graduation.
Prepare a high quality camcorder
As youve decided to videotape a great graduation film, whether to purchase a new one or youve already own one, or even rent one, whatever, it is very important for you to take it into consideration of a high quality camcorder. Canon XA10 would be the best choice for you, however. Besides, make sure that your camcorder is working perfectly beforehand because it may become broken while in storage.

Arrange the equipments
Tripod: Graduations will last for a long time, and thus your arms will easily get tired so that the camera would begin to move up and down. A tripod will save your video from the shakes and make the shooting job easy.

Extra batteries or AC adaptor: If theres any time when you needed an extra battery, graduation is. Batteries never last as long time as they claim to, especially when they are in need. If necessary, bring a power supply and extension cord.

Viewfinder: As the big color LCD screen tends to drain the battery, use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen to save battery power.

Occupy a good location
Try to get to the graduation locale as early as possible so as to occupy a good location to shoot the video and get a clean audio feed. Remember not to set up your camera in the aisle where the crowds are standing or people are walking by.

Plan the video contents
Dont try to shoot everything into the video if your final goal is to make an excellent family video! Make a plan of what you need to show in the video before shooting. Focus on videotaping your beloved one. And dont forget to take some wonderful pictures as well!

Post production editing
When you finish filming the graduation video, remember to do the post production editing with some professional video editors like AE or Adobe Premiere. However, if you are a Mac user, you will need to convert Canon XA10 AVCHD videos to Mac before editing. A smart Mac AVCHD Converter would help a lot.
