Psst…do you want tips to create great videos?
- Phone or computer with a camera. Yes, your phone. Most phones today have a great camera on them, and you might be surprised to learn just how many of those videos are actually shot on an iPhone or Droid.
- Natural Light. Find an area that gets a lot of natural light and set up shop right in front of it. If you’re in an office without windows or have a good source of natural light, you purchase a ring light. Most ring lights have a place that will hold your camera. Make sure you have that so it’s easier to use.
- Softbox Light. This isn’t a necessity but a nice feature if you’re in an office or room that doesn’t have great lighting.
- Microphone. If you’re using a webcam, a USB microphone will improve the audio on your video. If using your phone, you can get a microphone that is compatible with it. Having great audio is important. If the audio isn’t good and your audience can’t hear you, they will log off.
- Teleprompter. This is a game-changer, friends! There are several out there, but Big VU is one of Edie’s favorite!
Edie and I talk about the biggest and coolest feature: how you can create these videos that look like you have an entire production team, simply and easily from your home or office. She can work with you virtually, coach you on your videos, work with your lighting, audio and edit through proprietary software. It’s freaking fabulistic! (You have to check it out!)
