How To Make Quality Videos With A Smartphone

“I can’t get into video, I don’t have the equipment. If you’ve ever said this sentence, then you must have forgotten about that little object that is (probably) in your pocket right now.

Filming with a telephone and obtaining a qualitative result is no longer the domain of the impossible, in particular because the cameras integrated in these devices have made clear progress.

Take care of the framing

The focus here has to be on you, which means you have to occupy a good part of the frame (and the point has to be on you).

However, do not neglect your background , which should also help define the mood, the tone of the video.

Rather than occupying a perfectly central position, prefer to shift slightly to the side: this dd and also leaves more room for your background.

Avoid the zoom

The zoom is an effect which can quickly become grotesque (and it is not for nothing that it is hardly used any more in the cinema).

This is all the more the case with smartphones, which are mostly equipped with a digital zoom. This type of zoom pixelating the image and creating an “illusion” of magnification which is not very pleasing to the eye.

As said rather, always place the camera as close as possible to the subject to be filmed rather than using the zoom.

Use editing software

You won’t be able to escape it: you’re going to need to do some editing to get a good quality video.

Editing has different interests:

It lets you cut missed or unnecessary footage that you don’t want to keep;

To add transitions and interstices;

Different Tutorial Videos And How To Make Them?

0 Comments

How to fix a leaky faucet? How to change the engine oil in your car? How to replace a computer battery? There is a good chance that while searching for these terms in a search engine, you will come across a tutorial video that shows you step by step how to perform these operations.

A tutorial video is a video that explains a process, conveys knowledge, explains a concept or shows how to do something.

Creating instructional videos isn’t just for professionals. At least not anymore. Anyone, regardless of industry, can create tutorial videos. Here are some examples of videos you can create:

Tutorial video

This is the reference teaching method for explaining an operation or providing step-by-step instructions. The tutorial videos usually have a duration which varies between two and ten minutes and can cover several subjects through different teaching practices.

Short video

These are educational videos of a few tens of seconds that focus on unique information. They are generally aimed at large consumers of media whose attention spans are known to be short.

Training video

The training videos are designed to improve the skills of your employees in the workplace. Companies often create these online training videos to cover interpersonal topics, like compliance and harassment risk training, or job-related topics, like hardware and software training.

Explanatory video

How-to videos are short videos, usually two minutes or less, that explain a business concept or product in a fun and visual way. They often use simple animations to explain a topic, product or service. How-to videos turn complex ideas into easy-to-digest content.

Video presentation

Recording a presentation is a convenient method to simplify delivery to a wider audience, such as to people who were unable to attend an event. For those who were present, it is also the way to review and reclaim its content. A simple method is to record the audio of a presentation. If you want to make a more complete video, it is possible to mix the PowerPoint slides, sound and video of the presenter.

Screen recording video

The screen recording videos are short and informal, they are intended for a specific audience. These are digital video recordings of your computer screen, most of the time accompanied by audio narration.

The format lends itself to real-world teaching, where an instructor, colleague or manager can create a screen recording to answer a question or clarify a problem. Often thought of as short-lived “disposable” videos, screen recordings can be made quickly, with a specific purpose. Their cost is minimal.

As you can see, the tutorial videos have different names. However, unlike other forms of video, the tutorial still provides instructions. Whether you need to do an introductory video or a screen recording, the goal is the same: to captivate your audience while teaching them.
