As a novice video creator, creating your video is not the easiest thing to do. However, all experienced video creators were once beginners. To make your video, you will need to follow some simple steps.

Work on your script

Before you start filming your content, you need to know what you are going to talk about, what is exactly your message. You also have to ask yourself, how are you going to spread your message.

Development of your message

It goes without saying that your message has to be simple and clear. When your message is well-structured, it is necessary to determine how you are going to convey it. For instance, you can spread what you want to share through a tutorial or storytelling, but there is a difference between the two.

  • A tutorial offers practical advice for use, this type of content aims to educate us and teach us things.
  • A storytelling is about telling a story to get your message across.

Create a script template

If you intend to create content regularly, you should maybe think about making your own script template, so you can make your work less difficult. Indeed, if you want to write your script faster, you will just have to use your template.

Shoot your content

First, avoid filming vertically, or the images will appear with two black bands on the sides. Always take pictures or movies horizontally. If you had to shoot vertically, that is okay. Some editing software offers you to put the capture in the right format.

Secondly, the tool you use for filming must be stable. So, you can wedge your phone or camera with books, for example. Also, adjust the brightness with a lamp, because the sunlight is very aggressive. Moreover, avoid shots taken from below that will not flatter your face and check the sound quality of your first video shots.

Finally, in order to make your video lively, you must avoid monotony. Indeed, you will have to vary the shots or work well on your editing.

Editing of your video

Think about it and choose the software you feel most comfortable with.
