I am really excited about a new offering – editing YoutTube videos! I have created three videos for one of my clients, and I have had a blast through the whole process!
It all begins with the video shoot. The client comes with a script that was a fleshed out idea that came up in a strategy or brainstorming session. I commandeer part of a room and set up all of my equipment, wire the subject, and off we go! The nervousness usually wears off in a half hour, and the rest is work sprinkled with laughter.
I then take the raw footage and begin to assemble it. The editing process requires a number of other elements as well, such as any logo animations, title cards, thumbnails, music and sound effects. I weave a story together based on the footage and the needs of my clients. Once complete I render it out and upload it to youtube as an unlisted video. The client watches the video and we go through a round of tightening – then it’s live!
Youtube has its own video grammar, so just putting together a “normal” video is not the best use of time or resources. I never knew that my Youtube habit would come in handy!
