“Vlogging does take practice, and so the more you do it, the better at it you’ll be,” explains Diongzon. “But there are some things I like doing that help my prep for the day as I vlog. Just like any video production, making a vlog consists of three stages. First is the planning stage, next is the filming stage and third is the editing stage.”
Diongzon walks you through each stage, sharing the various tools he uses to complete them. The underlying theme of his talk is that a vlog is supposed to be fun and you shouldn’t overthink it. Some things will undeniably go wrong, but that’s actually good content that your audience will want to see.
“If some things go wrong as you’re filming, make sure to capture it,” he says. “Those are the fun things that people like to see as people watch your journey. I mean I think that’s what vlogs are really all about – capturing all the highs, all the lows...all of those candid moments on camera. Those are things that make a vlog really interesting to watch. You can plan as much as you want but also, don’t overthink it.”
