How do I make a video?

Great question, and thanks for asking! Despite all the information on this site about making video, it all boils down to four primary steps.

  1. Write down what you want your video to look and sound like.
  2. Grab a camera and shoot what you wrote down.
  3. Edit everything you shot to be in the order that you planned on in step one.
  4. Export a video file and share it with the world.

Ok, oversimplified, we know. To get moving in the right direction, read through the rest of the FAQ and check out the links to the resources we’ve provided. Video production and filmmaking can be a deep rabbit hole, so it’s up to you how far you want to go.
