VIDEO CONTENT CREATION: A LOOK-IN
You've just seen a wonderful video on the internet and you think you're also cut out for it or you've been considering going into video content and you decide to begin.
You have an idea that feels great in your head already so you whip out a camera -your phone's or a portable camera- and start recording.
You record for a minute and stop to watch your work, expecting some TG Omori level of goodness but what you see makes you cringe to your toes.
Your eyes were not focused on the camera, you were looking at yourself. You repeated a lot of "so" and "like". Your filled laundry basket was peeking out at the corner of your screen. Your face looked oily. Everything about the video was wrong!
Not discouraged in the slightest, you arranged your room, wiped your face or dabbed some powder on it, focused on the lens and started recording again.
But just like clockwork, the pap seller on your street made her routine announcement: "Ologi yin ti de o. E wa ra ogi fi je akara o" (Your pap seller has arrived. Come buy pap to eat with beans cake).
At this point, you smack your palm on your face, stop recording and patiently wait for her to move past your window.
When she's gone, you finally get the chance to record your wonderful content idea in peace. On pressing play though, you see that you didn't quite say the words in the order which you had them in your head.
Realizing how important a script is for recording good videos, you make a mental note to write one for your next video.
After a lot of failed attempts, you finally record a presentable video. Although you wish you had a better camera for better quality, but this would work for now.
The above story is one that many (if not all) video content creators can relate with as their experience (or similar) when they started out in content creation.
With practice and consistency, they got better at their productions. The process still remains tasking though and gets expensive as one grow grows due to the amount of gadgets and time needed to edit videos.
The good news is Ckrowd is designed to help creators share their videos and earn while doing so.
