Learn How to Produce Awesome Videos (with just a phone!) That'll BOOST Your Career Prospects
Practical Videography Taught by the Creative Director of The Royal Singapore
We are in the midst of a video revolution.
According to a Cisco report, video will make up 82% of the internet’s traffic in 2022.
Knowing how to shoot a great piece of video has never been more rewarding than before.
8-year-old Ryan Kaji from Texas who made a cool $35 million in 2019 on YouTube is one perfect example. So are Charli D’amelio and the other 18 TikTok stars that form the Hype House in Los Angeles. Or Nas Daily and home grown media platforms like The Smart Local or Night Owl Cinematics.
What makes it even more exciting about this revolution is that the barriers to entry are low.
These days, productive value is second and story is the KING. It's like the California Gold Rush, except that instead of a gold pan, it’s a phone that’ll allow ANYONE to use videos to make money and achieve massive successes.
Just take a look at the numerous students and young adults who’ve grown their TikTok, Instagram or YouTube followings with just a phone and a few simple apps.
But video isn’t just for the ones who are after clout. It has numerous amount of practical purposes too.
Do you remember the ‘s-hook’ lady from two years ago? These days, thanks to her use of Facebook live videos, her business has grown more than tenfold.
Or have you came across Property Lim Brothers, a pair of property agents who used video to advertise their real estate on Instagram and YouTube while their peers engaged in old fashioned methods, thus allowing them to sell way more houses with way less time?
Even the hawkers at our local Tekka Market have begun using live-stream videos to sell their poultry!
Given all these possibilities that video can allow one to tap onto, it’s no surprise that videography sits on LinkedIn’s list of the top 10 skills that’ll get you hired in 2020.
Why Many People Are Learning
Videography These Days
IT’S BOTH A CAREER AND SIDE-HUSTLE ANYONE CAN START
While full-time videographers are in high demand, even entrepreneurs and people with full-time jobs have tapped onto the power of video to build their brands or work at it as a side hustle.
One gas station clerk in US amassed 1.2 million subscribers by uploading CCTV footage of thieves that try to steal from his station and has made way more money than he was working his job since.
And you can do it too by building on your strengths, be it baking, discussing about current issues or even showing off your prowess at the claw machines.
IT’S A SOLID WAY TO BUILD AN AUTHENTIC PERSONAL BRAND
A recent Forbes article mentioned that personal branding is more important than ever in the 21st century.
Take for example a 25-year old computer science student who got chosen for a competitive position in a top 5 tech firm.
Compared to the numerous other applicants, his skills, qualifications and portfolio were pretty much similar. Why was he chosen then?
It turned out that he had gone an extra step and filmed videos of himself in hackathons as well as uploaded tutorials about his computer science projects. Unknowingly, he had carved a personal brand for himself that showcased his abilities and personality.
Naturally, his interviewers were thoroughly impressed when they googled his name (and so would his colleagues, dates he matches on Tinder as well as his future business partners and clients be).
Make AWESOME, RELATABLE TikTok or Instagram videos
Have you wondered how some personalities (influencers, entrepreneurs and even chiropractors) manage to churn out video after video that gets thousands of likes and tens of thousands of views?
While being talented does help, the secret actually lies within the few key storytelling principles that you too can easily tap onto to make awesome videos of your own.
So, what do you say?
Are you ready to level up your social media game?
Will You Be Left Behind in this Video Revolution?
Now that you’re well aware of how essential videography is in 2020, the question that lies ahead is what will you choose to do with this information?
Will you be a passive bystander that merely observes and watch as the people around you tap onto it to advance both their professional and personal lives?
Or will you join the many successful individuals who have taken an active stance to ride on this trend and have opened up a world of career possibilities for themselves?
If you seek to belong to the latter group of savvy students, I’d like to recommend to you a course that was made specially to help turn videography beginners that'll get you started on your video storytelling journey in no time.
