How to Make a Video Without Being on Camera

On the bright side of
branding business and being your own boss hey bosses I’m sunny lenarduzzi and
we’re doing another segment called brand beauty tutorials and this is where i
show you how to create amazing content online that will help you stand out and
be easily recognizable to your target audience today we’re talking about
beautifying your video content and I have a feeling this is going to be a fan
favorite because one of the biggest complaints i get when i say use video
content for your business. So today I’m going to show you three ways
that you can create video content where you don’t actually have to put your face
on camera PS we all know that video is the fastest
way to grow your brand and your business online and if you haven’t checked it out
i have a video on the top five reasons you need video for your business and
your brand if you haven’t watched yet you can check it out right here go watch it and the link is also in the
description below. Alright let’s hop into the tutorial so the first app that you
can use to create a video post just using images and words is ripple so you
open up the app and you create a new post so we want to add a back-to-back
drop on this you don’t have to because there’s preset backdrop so let’s say we
want to use this will save that and then we’re going to put in the primary text
which is your headlines will get we’re gonna call it be your your own
boss and then we’ll do the hashtag is the secondary tax OB while boss and then
we’ll do my website as the destination link and then we want to press the arrow at
the top and you’ll see that it just creates it automatically as a little
video file you can change the format of the font to whatever you want it to be
you can change the color to fit your brand and then you can also add music
that’s already in here and this is with the free version of ripple you can
upgrade for more options but this does the trick for you and then once you
press the arrow it will ask you to share it as an animation or still so you want
to share it as an animation so it’s actually a little video file and that is
what your final video will look like and once you have the post ready to share it
automatically will insert your go-to destination and your hashtags that you
want to use that based on what you used in the post and then it will be ready to
be shared to any of your social platforms but you do have to pay for the
upgraded version in order to save it to your camera roll or your photos but if
you just want to share social media you can do that with the free versions
that’s one app that you can use to create video files and many videos
without actually being happened to be on camera the next one option number two is legend so in the legend app it works in the
varies in a very similar way it’s just a bit more of a modern layout and font so
we’re gonna say be your own boss again you can upload a picture if you want so
I’m actually going to leave at this time I don’t really want to upload a picture
here but you can upload a picture at the backdrop and as you can see it will
create these little mini animations or videos using whatever text you want to
use you can change the colors you can also turn it into a gift so it
automatically is animated in that way for you and save it to your camera roll
or share it on social media and then once you’re done save it to your camera roll and that is
what your final video will look like and out of all of these ways that you can
use video but not have to be on camera this has to be my favorite and I’m
seeing so many brands start to use this so we all know that inspirational
content works really really well online and tends to
get really high engagement but oftentimes we’re seeing inspirational
images or quotes static content graphics so instead what a lot of people are
starting to do is create many little videos that just kind of loop over and
over again post them on facebook because on
facebook video performs the best of any kind of content and overlay an
inspirational quote on top of it so i’m gonna show you exactly how you can do
this for your brand and your business to get even more eyeballs on your content here’s an example of what I’m talking
about so here you can see Gary vanish the inner track creates these awesome
graphics with these motivational quotes of his on his facebook page so we always
post these on his Facebook page but what he started doing which is so smart
because he is a genius he started creating them into little videos and
it’s just on a constant loop so people will see it every time it scrolls
through the newsfeed so how do you create this for your brand very easy so
what I did is I created a graphic in canva and needs that the dimensions for
this or 1920 x 1080 that’s the size you want and then I’m just going to put the
text over top that I’ve used in the other other little many videos that I’ve
created i’m just going to leave that up there and then I’m going to add another
piece of text with my handle on it so people know where the graphic is coming
from what I’m going to show you now is we filmed a little quick video of me
just sitting down at my computer i’m going to edit this so there’s no sound
on it and we’re going to slow down the speed so we go to speed editor in iMovie
and then I’m just going to duplicate it so plays over and over and over again
i’m also going to add a filter on it so it’s a little bit darker so I’m just
going to add the glow filter on it there we go and then what I’m going to
do is add a filter on this as well so i actually might make this white and then
we’re going to add a filter a filter on this show will go to elements grids elements shapes will go up to the top
here we’re gonna make that black and we’re going to put a transparent filter
on it just take down the transparency so it makes the image a little bit darker
and we’re going to move this to the back and now we’re going to download this
image you need to go all the way down to the bottom and download with the
transparent backdrop and i’m going to download it as a pain file then we open up I movie again and we’re
just gonna make the statics we go to hear fit and we’re just going to drag
this graphic all the way across the video there you go and that’s how you
create your graphic with just text overlay so yes I’m in this video but you
could take a video of really anything add this text-overlay and created as a
looped video on facebook that’s going to autoplay in people’s feeds creates an
inspirational graphic but that graphics actually video so you’re going to get
more reach me posted on platforms like Facebook and voila here is your
beautiful inspirational image video graphic I made that term i’m sure it’s
not going to catch on but just go with it with me isn’t it beautiful any and all resources

  57. Amber Haeg August 12, 2018 at 7:20 pm

    The video title isn’t representative of the content; it’s more about how to make short videos with apps. It seems like the video says “ways to be on YouTube without being in front of the camera”

  88. Highland Globetrotters June 27, 2019 at 7:46 am

    Is the Legend app is available? My search comes up with nothing.

  89. A dudes thoughts July 13, 2019 at 4:29 pm

    I find showing my regular old face to be boring. I used video clips,game footage or graphics and designs.

    I used Microsoft movie maker,but I will check out these other options

    I have s small channel,but I think I have some visually interesting looking videos even though I have gotten a little lazy and use video game footage as of late.

    Been using Microsoft virtual reality as well which is real cool ?

  90. SC Criminal Defense Attorney Susan E. Williams July 18, 2019 at 3:30 pm

    This video is super helpful! The link to Legend does not work. I searched on the apps on my iPhone and it is not available. Maybe this app has been replaced with something else? I will definitely check out Ripl! I am new to YouTube And all of your videos are truly amazing and helpful. Straight to the point and that is very helpful. Love your energy and enthusiasm!

    Nice job

  92. Sleeping Labradors August 12, 2019 at 9:39 pm

    Hi Sunny, do you have any tips on making YouTube videos without talking? I have a pretty bad stutter and can’t hold a conversation, much less record a video whilst talking or even a voiceover. Ideally I’d like to add in mini pop ups of text when using a beauty product for example, then I can have the full text and conversation on a blog post that goes into depth about all my steps. Or is it just best not to have a YT channel? I know adding my voice would help decide if people want to follow as it’s a way to actually connect with an audience on that personality level. I’ve been using IGTV by adding captions but I want to spread my reach with YouTube plus I’ll be able to load longer videos. Thank you in advance for any tips!
