When you’re making a thought leadership video, start by recording your sound bite.
Think of what you’d like to communicate on-camera as an expert. Personal stories make great videos – share an experience and what it taught you. You can give advice to others in your field or talk about the future of your industry. Just speak passionately from the heart – viewers respond to authenticity.
Remember to keep your sound bite concise and to the point – about a minute or less is ideal. If you speak for too much longer, you run the risk of losing your audience. You can also break up your thoughts into separate sound bites and edit them together in Videolicious.
Sit down in a well-lit area and film yourself using the front-facing camera of your mobile device. For best results, look at the small camera lens on your device and not in the middle of the screen. If there’s a friend around to film you, that’s even better!
To create your video using Magic Mode, your Videolicious administrator should work with our team to set up an album of approved supporting shots that you can access from your account.
If that’s been done, open Videolicious. In Step One, tap “Choose your shots.” Then tap “Magic Mode” – and you’ll see any albums that have been created for you. Tap the one you want, then import the sound bite or sound bites you need to tell your story. Make sure you select them in the correct order.
Press play, and watch the magic begin! Magic mode automatically lays your album footage over your sound bites and mixes in music – without you touching anything else.
