Smartphone Video PROduction

Today on Video Marketing Madness Smartphone Video PROduction
Ray explains how to shoot pro videos on the new iPhone 11. Subscribe at: GoVmm.com

Smartphones shoot in HD and iPhones have 4k. The advantage is you can see what you’re shooting when you’re on camera. So, you don’t need a cameraman. The iPhone has good auto focus and green screening compression is excellent. The audio is much better than DSLR. You’ll need an external mic and Ray recommends the Movo LV1 which you can buy at RaysBonuses.com/Movo Ray likes FiLMiC Pro because it allows you to control more functions on the iPhone and it comes with a remote clicker.

New to the 1Phone 11: the front facing/selfie camera is 4k! The back cam is 3 cameras in one: telephoto, wide angle and super wide angle! FiLMiC Pro will give you the ability to control switching with the 3 cams

The Power of YouTube Cards

Today on Video Marketing Madness: The Power of YouTube Cards Ray explains what they are and how to use all the applications. Subscribe at: GoVmm.com

Cards are the little “i” and a CTA in the upper right-hand corner. CTA is not visible the entire vid. Five cards per vid, and you can select timeframe. You can link to a website, but you need to add an associated website to the channel, and for that, you need 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours of watch time in a 12 month period. You can also link to another vid, add a poll or if you’re a non-profit, ask for a donation. Cards are great for coupons, and they have a good click rate. Be sure to point out the cards in the video. You can monitor in YouTube analytics. You need to verify your YouTube channel to use cards.
