How do I produce a better video?

- Get inspired by the 7 topics on VOY

- Check out what's trending in blog post conversations

- What are we debating in the community?

- Brainstorm your story beforehand with some friends

- Keep your clips to 2 or 2.5 seconds if you can. Instagram videos are 15 seconds long

- Don't want sound? Hold your finger over your phone's microphone

- You can record voiceovers separately using your phone or computer

Tips & Tricks- Move & Record:

- Record a few reusable clips such as shots of your friend on a bike or your friend on a bike cycling away from you.

- Stop moving. Set the phone down on a steady surface or, if you have a tripod, use that.

- If you're holding the phone, lock your arms by extending them straight in front of you to minimize the movement. If you must move while shooting, walk heel to toe for a smoother shot.

- Stay in an area with stable light. Quick movements between dim and bright lights will not appear correctly- the phone doesn't have time to autocorrect. Going for a silhouette look? Try a back-light.

Any tips on editing my video?

- The easiest way to edit is to shoot the video directly within Instagram app

- Videos can be 3 – 15 seconds

- As you're shooting, you can actually delete segments of your video (You can only delete your most recent segment. You can't delete the first, otherwise you'll have to delete the whole thing)
