Tools for creating content

If you are like me and you watch tones on Youtube, then you should know the advice most professional videographers give: “work with what you got!” I am starting my channel taking this advice to heart. The tools at my disposal are: and iPhone XS Max, a cheap monitor arm, and my computer an iMac pro-2015 with the program iMovie.

Editing video content in iMovie

I don’t think I need to go into detail about recording video on my iPhone, I didn’t change any of my video settings and I made sure my room had plenty of light because I was recording at night. (which is the best time for me to do my best creative work!) I like working in iMovie because a video novice like myself can easily maneuver through this program. The interface is straight forward and I don’t feel ashamed if I don’t understand something. I do own a more professional video editing program, ( Final cut pro) however I am not well traversed in that program.

iMovie interface

The easiest and most used part of the iMovie interface I use is the speed up and slow down functions. The original recorded video took an hour of constant filming. With the speed functions, I was able to shorten this video to under fifteen minutes.
