Telling Your Story Through Video

Is your organization planning to expand on or get started with video storytelling this year? If so, you might want to check out a new article by Idealware: A Few Good Tools for Video Editing.

In the article, Kyle Henri Andrei, suggests that while “you’ll never shoot a perfect video from start-to-finish in one take. …Editing lets you cull the best parts from several takes and combine them into one---or, more simply, cut the bad parts out of a single take.” The article provides some thoughts and tips on using video editing software – looking at the “different tools [that] offer different approaches to editing and degrees of usability."

It includes overviews of several free or low-cost solutions for editing short videos or slideshows, as well as “Beginner Tools” that are “good ways to get your feet wet with video editing.” The article also offers reviews of “More Advanced Tools” for power users, as well as “Other High-end Solutions” for those who are “skilled or savvy-enough and have high-end video production needs.”

You can read the Idealware article – here.

    Hi Lori,

    Here are some addendums I'd be inclined to would add, if you're going to read Kyle's video article.

    1) Under Free Tools, I would add www.MyBrainshark.com

    2) Under Beginner tools, I would add Camtasia from www.techsmith.com, and Sony Vegas from www.sony.com.

    Thanks,
    Rick
