Given how popular and important videos have become, it can be quite overwhelming for aspiring video creators to gain ground. Worry not, our Digital Content Head has some quick tips just for you!
Learn online and offline, from past and present
Keep yourself updated with not just current but also past online trends in video making styles, voiceovers and more. Current trends keep you on a roll while past trends provide helpful insights. Offline learning is mindfully observing things around you - be it a sound, visual or story - and skillfully incorporating it into your video to make it unique.
Track the hacks
Try out every hack there is, to overcome challenges and make your work simpler and faster. Don't have a tripod? Go for a clean glass table/panel or plastic panel to make overhead videos. Keep websites or apps handy if you’re unexpectedly required to make changes.
Have the aesthetics in place
Good music that elevates the mood can make all the difference! Hone your skills in finding the right music and keeping a diverse playlist ready. Keep your text minimum and bold to have the basics of text placement right.
Understand the social media tool really well
If you understand the interface of a social media website or app, it gets easier to create content. You can make Instagram stories spontaneous, fun and creative if you understand its features or tools like drawing, GIFs, music, etc.
