Vlogging 101: Editing Magic
Now, are you ready for some movie magic? Alrighty then.
If you’re going HELZ YEAH in your head, then virtual high fives to you my friend. Now, if you have a big question mark in your forehead it’s probably cuz you have no idea of all the awesomeness that’s been going on in the Friday Video Time HQ. Don’t worry, I’ll put you up to speed.
This is actually Part III of my video blogging series (watch Part I + Part II) + today I’m taking you behind the scenes on how I edit my blog movies. It’s a little bit like Disney’s MGM Studios expect I don’t have any ear chocolate chip cookie sandwiches or a ride where I explode bombs in your face. Bohoo! But wait, I’m doing something pretty amazeballs for you: I’m making this technical video stuff really fun + pain free for you. Just like you like it!
And if you stick around till the end, I have 2 tips that will reduce your video editing process in half. I’m serious.
Heads up, the video editing software I used in today’s episode is iMovie, which comes free for Mac users. Have a PC? Not a fan of iMovie? Want to upgrade? Video extraordinaire Bianca Filoteo of Video for Shy People recommends Final Cut Pro, for it’s awesome performance + because it works with pretty much the same logistics as iMovie. When I take it out for a test spin, I’ll come back to report.

Psst… next week, I’m bringing you some never before seen (or heard) stories of my vlogging journey – the good + the bad + the ugly + the awesome. This is not a teaser, it’s actually my evil alter-ego typing this to hold me accountable cuz she knows I’m too afraid to share. Damn it!
