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
Sophie VL is a business coach who helps overwhelmed entrepreneurs grow their online business and ditch the plan B.
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.
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.
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.
Thumbnails and Instagram promo
We’re still experimenting with design, but here’s the evolution of thumbnails.
I also create the promo images for Instagram.
As soon as IG TV launched, we started experimenting with it. Now we have a system down for repurposing videos to fit the IG TV format.
Instagram Story for YouTube and IG TV Promos
For every video I edit for YouTube and IG TV, I create an Instagram Story with a highlight from the video. The design concept was created by Sophie, but I implemented her idea and created promos that fit her brand.
IG TV Promo
When I started on Sophie’s project, she really wanted a branded intro. She already had an intro video that she created with a compilation of herself. At first, she wanted to get rid of it, but I really loved it and thought it fit her brand. I combined her video and animated her logo to create her video intro.

I love working with Sophie VL. While editing her videos, I feel like I know her as a person (we message each other, but have only spoken together like 3 times) and I have learned so much from her videos. For example, I didn’t like my sales funnel and after editing and watching her video, HOW TO CREATE A SIMPLE SALES FUNNEL FOR YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS, I ended up updating my sales funnel.
