Orlando Bloggers

Orlando Bloggers March Meetup Recap

March 2019 Orlando Blogger Meetup was with Lynnette Cantos, who is on IG @lynnecantos. Lynnette is a visual and multimedia journalist based in Orlando. Lynnette came to teach us about Video Editing 101. We learned the basics of video editing and production to jump start our own creative brands. There was so much to information to be learned from Lynnette that we are having her come back later on in the year, so we can get part 2 of the video editing aspect. That lady is a wealth of information.

Lynnette taught us that when recording for YouTube and using your phone, always put it in landscape mode, (turn it long ways) so you get the whole screen and all that you are recording is captured in one shot. Before you hit record:

  1.  Always remember to have your storyboard and/or script idea.
  2. Make sure you have the right tech equipment and accessories.
  3. Make sure your batteries are fully charged and you have extras
  4. Make sure your have enough memory space
  5. Always use a hard drive, it takes less time to download large files.
  6. Check your lens, do you have your Prime Lens and your Zoom Lens?
  7. If using voiceover – make sure you have a good mike, Lynnette suggested a Yeti Mike or Voice Memo Recording App.

Thank-you everyone for coming out and meeting with us.  Thanks to The Orlando Public Library for your hospitality and allowing us to utilize your Magnolia Room on the 3RD Floor.
