Getting out there: ALWAYS THINK OF THIS - “Who would watch my video”. Every screen needs an audience, every stage needs seats filled. The best way to plan a video is to look at your top 3 creators and ask yourself “Why do I like these creators” and then “Why would someone like my videos”. Making videos to entertain others is one of the nicest things you can do. Who are you entertaining and how are you benefiting your audience? It's all about them.

Editing: Whilst editing you need to remember... the editor makes the film/video. The camera collects all the pieces – Lets call them puzzle pieces. So, the camera films as much as it can, it collects puzzle pieces in a sense. Then, it is the editor's job to stick them pieces together to make a beautiful picture. Creating a video is art. I personally like to edit with a pen and paper next to me so I can write down ideas and jot down some notes. It’s a bunch of fun to lose yourself in editing.
Lighting: Ringlights are fantastic when starting out. Google some pictures of these lights. Have a look at these on google. The best bit? You only need one so it’s a great way to start vlogging.
General: Don't worry about making mistakes! Everyone makes mistakes when they start making videos, but making mistakes is actually one of the most important parts of making videos as it teaches you how to avoid those mistakes in the future!
