Editing your own video can be daunting. I get it. So much of how your message is received has to do with the way it looks and sounds. If you want to present in a way that it can be appreciated, then you need some degree of control over the tools that are capable of making that happen.
Of course the fear is that you won’t be up to the task. That’s a disturbing thought, especially if you’ve made it this far on the video path.
For once you get beyond the magic of what lighting and microphones and backdrops and scripts can offer, you find yourself standing at the doorstep of a video editing program. And maybe that seems to be a door with a lock on it that only a professional can open.
Well, I’m here to tell you that thought is an illusion. It’s an illusion of the exact same type that told you you could not be on video in the first place; that that was only for those few “chosen” ones. Yet somehow you saw through that illusion and broke through to the freedom that putting yourself on camera can offer.
So, OK, you’ve now discovered that was just the first step in a multi-step process. And while this next step seems harder, the truth is, it’s much easier.
Many of today’s video editing programs can help you fly through the process, if you know what to do with them.
You just need a recipe. It’s that simple.
Here’s mine. It’s a way to cut your editing time by 85% without losing a bit of quality. I think you’ll like it.
There’s strategy for all three parts of the edit process, including:
- The Shoot
- The Pre-Edit
- The Adjustments
When you combine these elements, you’re easily able to cut down your time, your frustration and up your quality by a fairly large percentage!
This strategy will defeat worry, crush doubt, decimate anxiety and hand you yet another big video breakthrough.
Not a bad outcome for an 11 minute investment. 🙂
