As promised, here is my interview with sci-fi and fantasy author Olivia Berrier. In the interview, Berrier talks about her experience with the self-publishing process and what types of contractors a self-publishing author can hire.
If you read my last post, you know that I had quite a learning curve with this project. Below are the top three things I learned about making a YouTube video:
- Always shoot your video in horizontal. Never film in vertical.
- Use a microphone or have a sound recording device close to your mouth.
- Double or triple the time estimate you allot to the editing process.
When figuring out how long a project should take you to complete, especially something you’ve never done before, give yourself plenty of time.
A few weeks ago, I conducted a video interview with sci-fi and fantasy author Olivia Berrier. My plan was to post that video today.
This was my first time ever trying to edit a video using Filmora or create subtitles on YouTube.
Let’s just say there was a learning curve, and that I will post the interview later this month.
Olivia Berrier gave me one piece of advice which is not in the interview but that applies to this situation: When creating a timeline for a project, double or triple your time estimate.
Happy writing and may your project timelines be more accurate than mine!
