Let’s Film!

Hello U-Tubers! We are excited to continue our journey into the world of YouTube! Yesterday we decided our content and posted a “trial” video! Today we will be breaking down our first official video and working on filming it!

What to expect on Zoom: Every day we will have time to share our progress with one another and give each other feedback. Today we will discuss how to break down our video and set up our space so we are ready to film!


  • Create an outline for your first video
  • Set up your work space
  • Start filming!

Creating an Outline

You need to ask yourself, “How many videos am I going to need to get my point across?” Is it 1? Or is it a series of 10 videos? If its more than one video, one tool to use is Outline. Step outline what will happen in each video and think about the length.

Is your video short? (2-3 minutes) or Long? (15-20 minutes)

Will you have an intro? Or outro? Will your videos end on a cliff hanger?

Planning your video. What’s it about? Who is your audience? Consider who will be watching your videos and target that age range.

Setting up your work space

Find a quiet place in your house with plenty of room. Set the camera up, turn on your lights and hit record. Don’t worry if you don’t nail it on the first try.

Record your Intro, your Outro, b-roll shots, etc.


Today we want to plan our first video and then begin filming it!


We hope you had a great day! Here’s a sneak peak of what we will be learning tomorrow: We will be working on editing the content we filmed today!
