Assalamu’alaikum Bro Aiman,
I’m planning to become a Youtuber, would like to seek your advice on certain technical issues. What are your equipments for video shooting, what type of software you use for editing or any other planning you do before making a video? Glad to hear from you soon and thank you!
Thank you for your message.
My equipments are fairly basic: a camera, a tripod, and a computer.
Pick a camera that can shoot decent quality video and audio (especially audio!), preferably wide screen. Don’t get too caught up in specs and price – pick whichever you can afford.
Same goes with tripod. Pick one that is good enough for the job. No need for an expensive one if there’s no real need for it.
For your computer, make sure it is fast enough for video editing. For starter, you can use Windows Live Movie Maker. It’s free and usable for simple videos and for beginners. From there, you can move up the ladder to something like Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere Pro.
Before making a video, write a script or some notes to make it easier for you to deliver your content. Just be yourself and focus on getting the message across. Don’t think about views or popularity; those things are just distractions.
Focus on delivering good messages as best as you can, with what you can afford now.
I pray that Allah grant you success. Ameen.
