Video 7 – Lesson 1 -The Basics (Master Your Money Mindset)
This video requires some work see review below.
Hi Mandy, you can get your videos using the links below. I believe you now have a set of good templates we can use for creating your videos. Have you already signed up for epidemic sound? Can you advise me on which videos you want to publish and where you want to publish them, thanks
You can download your latest videos here (Videos 1, 3, 3 and 5) Click this link and follow the instructions to download. You can download Video 2 here Click this link
Below are 5 videos of varying degrees of editing. Your video editing will fall into one of 4 classes. The 5 videos below can be used as examples.
A Class 1 edit consists of (Enhancements to audio and picture quality, text, motion graphics (logos) to ensure full understanding of the content of the video). We can use this kind of edit for promo videos and ads to invite people for a free sign up or to a landing page designed to sell a product or service.
A Class 2 edit consists of (Enhancements to audio and picture quality, text, motion graph graphics. Titles and text will only appear to emphasise some of the key points in the video). We can use this edit for special social media posts. These posts will subliminally say to people “This is important free personal development information” Your logo animation will appear at the beginning of the video.
A Class 3 edit consists of (Enhancements to audio and picture quality, title graphics and footer graphics, no text). Your logo and personal brand will appear during the video or at the end of the video.
These are videos which you publish which have not been sent to me for editing
The location and lighting of this video are very good, well done, no improvements needed here. The sound quality still requires improvement. I have recommended a microphone for you here. This video is very good in my opinion. After completing the edit, I could only find two small problems.
(1) In this video, you appear to be reading notes from a script or points from a list (Is this correct?). If you are not reading bullet points then you must look at the lens of the camera and not the screen. This is the best way to connect to your audience.
(2) As mentioned above this video refers to 6 modules ut in the video I could only find four distinct mentions of modules.
This video is wonderful. I really like the fanfare of the horn at the beginning of the video to indicate to the viewer that some special information is coming. This video will look good on Facebook and Instagram because it is a square video.
The location is OK although I would not advise filming against a window because it is likely that your face will darken to compensate for the light coming through the window. This video, however, works because you are close to the camera lens and the camera is ignoring the window. As a result of this, the window is over-exposed and you cannot see any detail outside of the window but this is not needed and actually makes for a good effect around your face.
Your sound quality must be improved it is the most important aspect of your video production, sound quality comes first. Microphone here.
Your floral dress is very good and will most likely give a welcoming feeling to your audience.
This video is an alternative to video 4. I like the way the main points are displayed on the screen and remain. This will give the viewers more to think about while they are listening to you. This style may not suit all videos and generally will suit situations when you are talking through a list.
The location is a little bland but the focus is more on you so in my opinion it is fine. Lighting is missing from this video and so too is good sound quality. Ring light here Microphone here
Having videos which just help to raise your online brand awareness is a good idea and will help relieve the monotony of all of your videos appearing the same. We will try to associate your logo and branding with your message as much as possible which is “development of the mind” and “how to think to achieve your goals”
My comments are in blue
Thank you Chris for the video, I think it’s a great start and have given me quiet a lot I can review on myself. You actually picked the video of all three that I did without any thinking before hand, very much off the cuff. So I can see I must get much sharper in my content and really follow the ‘structure’ you have suggested to me which I believe are:
1. ask question –
2. relate question to myself
3. give value
4. lead to any relevant link
Am I on the right path here?
Also the background, how about the other video’s and the background there? and I take on what you are saying there.
It relation to the equipment, I have put the microphone in my basket, and I wanted to ask about the lighting…..I am sure its what I require, but to say I am not in any technical and there look to be lots of bits to it all! do I need something that sophisticated? If I do no problem, just checking.
I haven’t registered for the music but will do this.
The visual feedback was also good….what am I wearing, makeup, my hair etc ……a fair bit to consider I think
I think the first few are pretty much practice video’s from my view, but would like to see one of the others as well….probably not both, as I want to improve each time so will do a couple of new ones based on your feedback.
Thank you so much for this, it’s perfect 🙂
oh yes please note my phone is not working so I am off line mobility wise, just my laptop – so will have to do my videos from laptop for the time being.
Hi Mandy, I really enjoy listening to your little talks, feels like I am learning something new every time, it’s great and makes me feel good to listen. Pretty sure many others feel the same way too. The things you say really makes sense.
OK I have created a draft video for you. Tell me what you think about this as a template going forward for other videos. Feel free to request changes to the video (add or remove things). This video is a starting point for conversation. Essentially what we are doing is building you as a person and building your brand. So we will create a theme and strengthen it over time.
This is a square video good for Facebook and Instagram. At times we should put call to actions at the end of videos and avoid links. Links can’t be avoided entirely but Facebook tends not to like them and don’t push them out as far to viewers.
If you like this video the next step would be to create a 16:9 (landscape) version of this video for Youtube.
The video I have created here for you has music attached to it. I have edited this video in this way so that you can see all of the options you have. If you would like to use music in your videos we must license all music you use to avoid videos being deleted by the social media platforms. The best place get music for your channels is a site called epidemic sound (Yes, this is what they call themselves they have been around for many years). All of my social media sites are licensed with them. They have the right balance of quality and affordability. It will cost approximately £11 per month to license together with your Facebook page, your Youtube channel and your Instagram account (£11 for 3 of your channels using the personal package). This is good value. Here is the link to sign up for it Epidemic Sound This is a referral link and I may get a small commission for introducing you.
Mandy if you want to take your video production to a more professional level I highly recommend the purchase of a microphone for your phone. The sound quality is not bad but I did have to enhance it in the edit which takes time. I recommend the following microphone for you – Microphone
It is important that you record your videos for editing in landscape. This means turning the phone on its side and recording that way. I will have more options for editing your video. Recording vertically limits what we can do in the edit,
I highly recommend that you get some lighting for your production. This will hugely improve your video quality. Here is my recommendation for a single light – Ring Light
Filming against a plain wall is not recommend, a bookshelf or some other ornamental structure would be better. Please film yourself in a few locations and allow me to take a look and advise. Depth into an open room is best with background lighting. We will get to background lighting later after we have discovered a few good locations.
Great Mandy, really enjoyed working on this video. The edits will get faster over time once we establish a good template.
