Lessons about Video from YouTube Creators

You may not be creating videos for the same reasons as the top YouTube creators, but they know what makes a good video.

Many of the same principles that make their content so successful apply to your videos too – no matter whether you’re creating training, customer education, instructional design, or any other type of video.

If you want to get more comfortable on camera, streamline your video creation process, or generally improve the look and feel of your videos, look no further than this episode of The Visual Lounge.

Tune in to hear host Matt Pierce share the video lessons you need to know from YouTube creators, including Sean Cannell, Nick Nimmin, Amy Landino, Tim Schmoyer, Owen Hemsath, and Andrew Kan.
