Making videos can be intimidating. There is a fair amount of technical stuff that can be excruciating on top of actually delivering the messages that you want people to hear. It is better to make a series of short, simple videos, especially when you are just starting out because completing multiple videos will give you a sense of accomplishment. Also, in my experience, long, complicated movies tend to be frustrating to make and can be even more annoying to watch.
The simplest, quickest and cheapest way to begin
You can start by using the video camera on your computer, tablet or smart phone and remember, no one ever has to see what you filmed unless you decide that you want them to see it. I recommend you make a few videos that are each under one minute long. These should be as simple as possible and honestly display what you feel. If you want to, you can write out exactly what you want to say and memorize it, then practice saying what you wrote while looking directly into the lens.
Stick with it, even if you are awful at first
I know that it may seem awkward to do this and there is a chance that you will absolutely hate everything about your performances. That is normal, negative is normal. I can assure you with complete confidence that if you continue to do this, regularly and persistently, you will get better at it and eventually you will be comfortable shooting these short videos. I trust that you will begin to see that you have a very important message to share with the world.
Share as soon as you feel like you have something that is decent
When you get something good recorded (and it could happen the very first time you try it) post that video and keep on recording until it happens again. Remember that only you have the experience, knowledge and skills that you do. What you have to offer is valuable to other people who will benefit from watching your videos. You just won’t ever reach them until you decide to and then take action on that decision.
