DIY Network Video - Make Videos Like The Pros

Here Are The Tools:

How It Works:
  • Use One True Media to add special effects and create clips to add into your video. 
  • Use Real Player to grab videos off of the web and download them free.
  • Use Movie Maker or iMovie to join/merge clips together and to insert audio into the video
Over the past few years I have been networking and finding new and clever ways to create things without paying any money out.  I have been getting more and more into the film industry and have been promoting different causes through the power of media.

Every now and then, I do invest in certain equipments such as: Computers, Microphones, Cameras etc. However, I have not spent anything on editing software.  

Working With The Free Tools:

  • # Movie Creation Tip 1. 
To start, lets look into movie creation.  To create animations, make a scene on under Adobe Flash Sites. After you have created a scene, capture it using YouCam.  If you own Windows 7, it should come on your computer for free but if you own Windows 8, you will need the YouCam 5 version and that will run $34.95 on the download section.  If your webcam software has what it needs, then go ahead and capture your scene using desktop capture.


  • # Movie Creation Tip 2. 
Here is one more way to create a skit to insert into your video...Use One True Media to make images come alive, add effects and video transitions.

It costs to download what you create, but I know how to get around it.  Once you have created a video,  go to preview then let RealPlayer grab the video and download it.


For best uses, use the RealPlayer Browser.

  • # Movie Creation Tip 3. 
Now let's look into making the edits, plus some tips on the making of a film.

Filming: All videos, movies and short films are all based on a script.  When filming, you must either remember it or have it where you can see it but it must not be in view of the camera.

It does not look professional to have someone holding a piece of paper and reading in off in front of the camera.   

There are three basic types of film: 

  • Movies. Where you tell a story through acting and plays.

  • News Media. It is a practice journalism, both big companies and independent go on air, either on TV or online podcast giving insight to a certain topic.

  • Documentary. Documentary films constitute a broad category of nonfictional motion pictures intended to document some aspect of reality, primarily for the purposes of instruction or maintaining a historical record.

Editing the cuts:  This is your final step in getting your video ready for uploading.  You can use a mixture of scenes, both ones you have filmed and ones you have downloaded from the internet.  

I have found that I don't even have to be in the area of the story to cover it.   All I have to do is gather information from the person via messaging, then collect his or her's videos to make the project.  Then look around YouTube for additional  video clips.  

In my video Featured Causes & Community, I used three different videos to make the scene.
The first clip, the U.S. Money Factory Scene.  The seconded, Mall Shoppers Scene.  Then the third scene, a City Theme all to help give the message.

Multimedia Tips 2013:

  • # Movie Creation Tip 4. 

Remember to save your downloads for later.

  • Organize your projects into folders.

  • Then make a system so that you can keep organized.

Ok, once you have a system, you are then ready to keep on producing videos independently.
One thing I have learned is that you have to jump in.  I did not know everything at first and I am still learning.
Every video that I do always has come out looking better than the last.  All of these skills come with practice.

I hope that these tips can be of help to all of you newbies out there.  Please free free to ask questions or add some of your advice in the comments below.


Inspired Media is very very pleased to Launch an Indigogo Campaign! Help us produce this project that will impact girls in Northwest Arkansas. Every bit helps!

How Content ID works

Copyright holders use Content ID to easily identify and manage their content on YouTube. Videos uploaded to YouTube are scanned against a database of files that have been submitted to us by content owners. When Content ID identifies a match between your video and a file in this database, it applies the policy chosen by the content owner. Content owners may choose the following policies:
Monetize: If ads that you did not enable appear on or before your video, the content owner has applied a Monetize policy.
Block: If the content owner has chosen a Block policy, your video will either not be viewable on YouTube, or its audio will be muted. The owner may choose to allow content within your video to play in some countries while blocking it in others. While you may not be able to see your video, or hear its audio, people in other regions may still be able to view and interact with it as usual. You will still be able to view, moderate, and respond to comments on the video from the Comments page in My Messages.
Track: If the content owner has chosen a Track policy, your video will be unaffected. However, its viewership statistics will appear in the content owner's YouTube Analyticsaccount.
Please keep in mind that any of these policies can be country-specific. A video may be monetized in one country, and blocked or tracked in another.

How to check your Content ID matches

You can view all of your Content ID matches in the Copyright Notices section of your account. If your video has been blocked worldwide, your account standing will be negatively affected and you may lose access to certain features.
If you believe the Content ID match to your video is correct, you may simply acknowledge it and move on. However, if you believe the system has misidentified your video, you may dispute the match.
If your video has been claimed by “one or more music publishing rights collecting societies,” you may want to learn more about collective rights management.

How can I use Content ID?

Only certain content owners will qualify for access to Content ID. If you don't own exclusive rights to a substantial body of content that is frequently uploaded by the YouTube user community, Content ID is probably not right for you. However, if you believe your content meets this criteria, you may apply.

Making a name for yourself as an Internet Sensation...

I don't think there is a single answer for this question...  But my observations are:
  • Be yourself
  • Create a video about something that is really popular and make it memorable
  • Promote yourself by building your friend base/subscriber base
You never know when something will become viral.

How do I promote myself on YouTube?

There are many questions asking how you can get more views or more comments?

The answer to both these questions is promotion. You have to increase your friend base which will naturally increase your views and comments.

Here are some things you can try:

  • Add many keywords that describe your video to make it easier for people to find when searching...  include synonyms to the keywords that you selected...
  • Check out some videos with a similar topic to your video... Perhaps you can create a video response to their videos... it will help generate some traffic to your videos and perhaps increase your subscriber base.

  • Make sure you do not disable your EMBED code... If people like your video enough, this will allow them to post your video on their web pages or in email, thus generating views.

  • You can also try a new software tool that can assist in your promotion needs...
