YOUTUBE VIDEO EDITING (BTS of how I edit videos QUICKLY!)

I made a couple of videos on how to edit videos, but I wanted to give you a behind the scenes of how I edit videos quickly for YouTube. Just so you know, everything in planning and filming has to be organized before you even start editing. Get an inside look at my YouTube video editing process.

YOUTUBE VIDEO EDITING (BTS of how I edit videos QUICKLY!)

Today I’m going to be talking about YouTube video editing. Specifically, I’m going to give you a behind the scenes look at how I edit my videos quickly. So I know I’ve talked about simple video editing or video made easy in a video before but I thought it would be easier to show you how I actually edit my video. 

01 Get organized 

Before I get into how I edit my videos quickly for YouTube. I wanted to talk about planning and filming. Those two have to be organized before you can quickly edit your videos. So if that’s a mess, then this video editing isn’t going to work. 

Open Adobe Premiere and name your project after the video that you’re actually editing. A few weeks ago, I talked about organizing your video files. You’re going to add your Adobe file (or your software file) to the folder called ‘Editing’ your YouTube video file. Make sure all your files are named correctly. Even your footage should be named with your final video title and then numbered in sequential order.

How to organize your video files so you can edit your YouTube videos faster

Do you take forever to edit your videos because you’re unorganized? Well having a process in place will help you save time. Keep watching to find out how to organize your video files so you can edit your YouTube videos faster.

How to organize your video files so you can edit your YouTube videos faster

I’m a total neat freak. I’m the type to keep all my stuff organized and put things back where they go. Yes, I’m one of those people who organize their closet by types of clothes, color, and occasion. I know exactly where all my stuff is and I never have to look for anything. 

Even my mess is organized. Right now on my desk, I have Post-its and papers everywhere, but in a way that I can find what I need quickly. You might be thinking that I’m so awesome for keeping my stuff organized, but let me tell you, it’s out of laziness. That’s right, I’m too lazy to clean, so I put things back where they go. It’s that simple. The same principle applies to video editing.

Video editing made easy

Do you hate video editing? Does it take up too much of your time? Well here’s a quick and easy way to edit videos for your business. Basically, video editing made easy.

The #1 reason my clients come to me to edit their videos is because they HATE video editing. It takes up too much of their time and energy that they could have put towards other business projects.

In this week’s video, I’m going to show you a quick and easy way to edit videos for your business. Basically, video editing made easy and less time-consuming.

Video editing made easy

It’s all in the Filming

It all starts during the filming process. If you watched the video on how to have quicker video shoots, then you know you need to film in sections.

If you didn’t catch that video, then watch it here.  It should be in the cards in this video, which is in the upper right-hand side, the icon that looks like a lowercase ‘i’.

Filming in sections will also help make video editing easier. Instead of editing one long video, it’s faster to edit sections.

Another thing to do while filming is to clap every time you make mistakes. If you see a big spike on the sound wave from where you clapped or if you see the clap, you know to disregard this section and go on to the next. This saves so much time in editing because you can just fast forward past the mistakes instead of wasting time watching each mistake.

How to plan so you have an easy video shoot

Don’t know where to start when it comes to creating videos? Here’s my step by step video creation process to plan and schedule your videos. The goal is to plan so you have easy video shoot.

How to plan so you have an easy video shoot

There are 3 stages creating videos. These are the pre-production phase, the production phase, and the post-production phase.

Let’s start with the Pre-production phase.

This is the most important phase of the 3 phases. Without this phase, the whole video content process is a mess. Everything will be unorganized and it’ll take longer to create your videos. We all know that time equals money.

Pre-production can be a big process when it comes to creating big productions, but we’re only talking about creating short videos for YouTube or your other social media channels.

We’re going to keep this super simple. You only need 2 things and that’s to brainstorm your video content ideas and create your script. That’s it.

Video Editing and Design for Heather Hartman Coaching

When Heather Hartman first hired me, she wanted me to edit her Facebook live videos into IG TV videos.

If you ever been to a Facebook live, you know that there’s a lot of distractions when you’re live. The reason most businesses go on Facebook live is to give information to their audience. BUT, because it’s live, you also want to talk and interact with your audience.

The combination of giving the information and engaging with your audience makes the video longer than it needs to be. I was tasked with editing out all the small talk and repetitive information so that it’ll fit into the IG TV standard of 10 minutes.

Besides the usual editing of sound, lighting, and bloopers, I also had to change the video dimensions since IG TV is usually viewed on the phone.

Here’s one of the videos I edited for Heather Hartman Coaching.

Once we finished this project, Heather Hartman wanted to start a YouTube channel and get serious about creating content.

For this project, I’m taking on the role of her Channel Manager and creating the thumbnails for each video.

Video Editing and Design for SEEKAYSEE

This project is kind of a passion project. I’ve always wanted to step into the realm of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle vlogs.

I stumbled upon SeeKaySee on YouTube searching for cruelty-free beauty tutorials. I saw her doing one of her creative makeup tutorials and started stalking her on Instagram.

We messaged each other a few times and I started going to her live Twitch streams. If you haven’t been to a live Twitch stream, it’s amazing. It’s like attending a live show and interacting with the host and other people in the chat.

The downside of Twitch streams is they are long and their focus is mainly on gaming, but I think it definitely has potential (for business and other genres).

Getting back on topic, I thought it was a waste not to create shorter videos of her makeup tutorials and add them to YouTube, and that’s how this collaboration came about.

I started repurposing Chris’s 3-hour Twitch videos so they could become short makeup tutorials for YouTube. This sort of morphed into other video ideas.

Check out the video below of funny moments from SeeKaySee. I had fun editing together her funniest moments and adding graphics to match the mood.

Here’s a video from Twitch to IGTV

Video Editing and Design for The Virtual Savvy

I’ve been dragging my feet updating my portfolio, but I’m excited to present some of the work I’ve been doing. 

I'm the best

Bragging aside, I was excited to work with Abbey Ashley from The Virtual Savvy. The actual video was already edited, but she wanted to add graphics.

This’ll sound lame, but at first, I wasn’t going to take on the project, but I changed my mind for 2 reasons.

Number 1, I try to say yes to projects as much as possible because I think everything is an opportunity to learn and grow as a person. Number 2, I watched Abbey’s video and fell in love with Abbey’s personality.

I continued to be impressed by Abbey during this project because of her professionalism. It struck me that this must be the essence of being a VA. This excited and inspired me to go all out for this video.

For this project, I used Adobe After Effects because (this is my personal opinion) the graphics tend to have a more high-quality look. I also envisioned using text and wanted to animate them.

In the end, I loved the overall look of the video. Watch the video below to see the finished product.

Yay, I’m excited to post my first portfolio for video editing! Here’s the video editing and design for Sophie VL.

Video Editing and Design for Sophie VL

Overview

Sophie VL is a business coach who helps overwhelmed entrepreneurs grow their online business and ditch the plan B.

YouTube Videos

Sophie creates consistent videos every Tuesday and Thursday, so I edit 2 videos a week.

Color Correction and Lighting

The first thing I do for any video is a color correction and adjust the lighting. Before I start any project, I send a questionnaire to my clients. From that questionnaire, I take into consideration the style that the client likes, their brand, and their content when deciding on lighting and color.

 

Before

After

Editing and cuts

This is all dependent on the client. At the beginning of the project, there were a lot of jump cuts and heavy editing when there were mistakes. Sophie didn’t care too much for having a lot of edits and cuts, because she wanted to keep things natural.

Channel Manager

I’m actually the channel manager for Sophie VL. I upload videos, research titles, and tags, schedule the videos and create the end cards for the videos. Sophie only has to concentrate on creating awesome content. Read More “Video Editing and Design for Sophie VL”

My video editing process

My biggest goal when editing and creating designs for videos is to help you attract your dream audience and become THE authority in your field. When I first envisioned my video editing process for this service, it was geared towards YouTube, but I have since expanded to other social media. The clients that I’m currently working with wanted videos created for Instagram, Instagram stories, and Facebook, so I added those options into this package.

My other goal is to focus on adding lifestyle elements to videos for entrepreneurs. Why? Because your audience wants to connect with you and once they do, they’ll want to follow/subscribe to your account and stay updated. I don’t want you to create a one and done video (those videos people look for to learn something, and when they do, they leave your channel and forget about you). I want you to create an audience that is excited to watch your videos consistently. Now that you know my main goals, here’s what you can expect from my video editing package.

Doing the homework

Once you book my service, you have a little homework to do. The first thing I do when you’re booked as a client is adding you to a project in Asana. Asana is a project management system and it’s where we’ll be doing all of our communication (you’ll still get email notifications, but through Asana).

Don’t worry, it’s FREE and easy to use. I’ll assign you to your task (your homework) and you’ll also see where I am and when things are due for your project. This makes it easier to communicate and manage all our files.

After you get access to your project in Asana, you’ll see that you have a questionnaire to fill out. This questionnaire helps me figure out what style to edit your videos in, your branding, who your audience is, and so on. I need this completed before I start editing your videos.

Also, on the questionnaire, there’s a section that lets me know how you’ll deliver your videos. You’ll let me know if you use Dropbox, Google Drive, Onedrive or any other cloud storage you have. If you want me to upload your videos to YouTube, you can provide access to your login or you can add my email address to your account.

Once you finish the questionnaire, you just mark the task as completed in Asana. The next homework assignment is to give me your brand style guide or elements of your brand (if applicable).
