One thing is doodling and then posting the picture to social media. Another is making videos!
I have about 10 videos now on YouTube and I finally have it down to a repeatable and enjoyable process.
Video creation is not hard per say but it is hard work.
For every minute/second of viewable enjoyment, there is hours of editing, splicing, stitching, research, composing, rework and then rework again…
At a high level, this is my process so far….
- Record the doodle and move to computer
- Take the recording and create edited masters
- Work on YouTube version (long version) (including thumbnail)
- Work on Instagram version (Short)
- Schedule Publish
Most of these steps are independent from each other. In other words I may batch step one and record 2 or 3 videos if I feel particularly creative that day. If I feel more “geekie” I may create several master source files in a sitting.. Or if I need content to publish ahead, I may dedicate the evening to schedule several weeks of postings ahead.
I will get more detailed into each of the steps above in future posts.
