Filming Tour Vlog

First things first - you need to film a vlog! If you need advice on what to talk about, see this article here.

Most smartphones or tablets will be able to record high-quality footage and capture good audio. Not only that but using a smartphone will allow you to film on the go and without the need for any special equipment.

You might want to consider the following when filming:

  • Different shots or filming techniques.

  • Film more footage than you need.

  • Edit your vlog to remove any unwanted noises, interruptions, or mistakes.

Having more footage will give you more work at the editing stage.

There are a number of free editing apps - including Filmmaker Pro, iMovie, and Pocket Video. Each app offers something different, so find the one that works best for you.

PLEASE NOTE: You will need to upload your vlog to YouTube before putting it on Unibuddy.
