One of the most enjoyable things to do when hanging out with friends is sharing funny youtube videos. It is the best way to start conversations, share stories and most importantly laugh until it feels like you’ve done a massive ab workout.
The easy thing to do is go on youtube and start clicking away to find some laughs but not many wonder about how those videos got there in the first place or how easy/difficult they were to shoot. Were the makers of the video trying to be funny or did it just happen by chance that a camera was present when something hysterical took place? The answer is both.
Filming a clip and posting it on youtube is easier than some might think. Coming up with the content or subject matter of what to film, takes a bit more creativity. The first thing one should do is watch some funny videos on you tube that get plenty of views. Be ready to ask yourself why the video was funny. Next, write down some ideas.
A good place to start is your personal interests. Are you a RPG addict? Are you an actor? Do you blog? Can you sing/lip-sync? Just jot down some of your talents or your favorite topics. It is easier to come up with content about things you know. After sifting through your brain, pick your favorite topic and then it’s up to you to choose whether to script your idea or improve the whole thing.
To create a video, you must have a camera. To submit to Youtube, all you need is a basic video camera. However, keep in mind that you must know how to pull out the video footage from the camera you are utilizing. It would be really good to have proper lighting equipment and sound when shooting, especially if your camera is not the best of quality. Keep your audience in mind when shooting, so you have to pay special attention to your shots and your sound quality. Arranging the pace of your video is of great importance as well so make sure you know how to edit. Lastly, call up your buddies, and pals and make some popcorn and enjoy your funny video!
