  • Ideate

Ideation is the stage where the video concept is born. 

To get fresh and new ideas, every time you sit to make a new video, brainstorming sessions are of great help. They help listen to everyone’s point of view, discuss the latest trend, new themes and incorporate thousands of ideas that pop in.

Such discussions help you get a good idea of the video objective and direction. 

This phase helps you finalise the essence of what your video will convey and the storyline that runs around it.

  • Plan

Once the ideation phase is over and you have that perfect idea you were searching for, take a sigh of relief. Now that you know where your video is heading, it’s time to get your vision executed. 

From finalising the shooting location, budget, time frame, scenes to be shot, selecting the actors, informing the crew and ensuring the availability of equipment and props required for shooting the video – planning is an imperative process in video making. 

All such activities which comprise the pre-production work forms, part of the planning phase.

  • Shooting

After finalising all the plans, it’s time to execute. Execution is the showtime for videos, no matter how short or long the video is, recording it with an adequate tonality is important. 

The definition of a good video is the one, which captures the right emotion and catches the audience eye at first glance.

So, work on the emotions to make your video a power pack of emotions that communicate the desired message. 

  • Edit

Editing enhances the beauty of any video. By chopping, trimming, sound mixing and applying themes and filters, editing roughens up the diamond to make it a desirable end product. 

So make sure you use the best software which provides advanced features to make your video seem professional and of a good production level.
