Starting with a blank piece of paper for each video can be super fun but also incredibly time-consuming. With this simple trick, you can give yourself and your colleagues a head start every time.
Everyone who creates videos for social channels knows how important the script is
– Since most video views happen without sound today, you must tell your story through the script, says Fredrik Strömberg, VP Product at Storykit.
This is why the script is the starting point when you create videos in Storykit, and you build your video on a storyboard instead of on a timeline. The advantages of script-based video creation are many, the obvious one being that you don’t need to have any knowledge in traditional video editing to create great-looking videos.
Super fast video creation
Another is that it’s effortless to re-use your videos - either the whole videos or parts from them.
– Creating videos in Storykit is entirely modular, a bit like building with Lego: you have many different parts you can fit into all possible constructions, says Fredrik Strömberg.
Two features in Storykit that helps you create video lightning-fast are Modules and Quick Insert.
– Think about all those times you’ve spent quite some time creating a quote, a list, an outro, or some other video detail extra nice or brand-adapted. Wouldn’t it be great if you could save those and re-use them so all your quotes, lists, and outros would look like that in the future? In Storykit, you can do that: you save the video detail as a module, and it will be available to all users in your account.
When you want to access your module, you will find it as a Quick Insert in all your jobs, and getting that ready-made Lego piece into your video will only take you a couple of seconds.
A simple trick that will save both you and your colleagues lots of time.
This is how you do it:
1. Choose "Insert storyboard" in the right spot in your video.
2. Choose the right module.
