Tips For Making Good Videos

Move Forward

Nothing loses attention like inaction. You have the chance to control what we see; keep it moving. If all you have access to is a room then what’s better: sitting and talking or standing and talking? Why not both? Change it up, give a sense of motion, and reset the scene without editing; viewers will be hooked. Be creative within your limitations. Even verbally, a structured sense of moving forward through a story goes a long way. Start at the beginning — start at how you became an original.

Talking is Only Half of it

Ever heard that communication is only 7% verbal? Well, that's technically not true. But it does shine a light on a major video rule: show don’t tell. This video is one minute long and that’s not much time. This submission should demonstrate why you deserve to be in the spotlight and why fans should watch you. This isn't a radio audition, talk with your environment and what we can see. If you want upvotes, you've got to entertain.

You Have 20 Seconds

While not an exact science, most people decide if they’ll finish a minute-long within the first 20 seconds. That’s a small window. Get us hooked in a creative way. You skate? Tell us about yourself while you do it, don’t take 10 seconds to show us that you skate, then another 10 talking about it. Open big; the more the better. Once you have our attention, we’re in.

This is Your House and We’re Invited

Be comfortable, you’ll be traveling and telling the world about it. If you’re not personable in front of the camera, if you’re not at home, then neither are we. Everyone wants to travel the world, make the viewer want to see you travel the world. Remember, if you become a Heavy Hitters Original then California is your home, you’re showing us around.

Use What Only You Have

We are looking for true, authentic Heavy Hitters Originals — for a person with something unique. Are you funny? Be funny. Can you juggle? Juggle. Are you a great decorator? Let's see it. Whatever makes you original, be sure to show it off. Not everyone has access to great cameras or locations, but no one else has access to you.

Bring us into Your World

If personal limitations make it hard to shoot a video wherever you want, then put yourself in the world around you. Put some thought into where you’re setting up. Are you going to film in the bedroom? Is your artwork in there? No? Then don’t film in there. Every single thing in frame has a chance to captivate and communicate your story. Use that to your advantage.

Be Creative
Think outside the box. It may be your video but that doesn’t mean you can’t use help. Just having a friend hold the camera instead of a tripod opens up a whole world of movement. Don’t have a friend? Use a chair with wheels. As long as you keep it under a minute and hit all the points, there’s no limit to what you can show us.

Don’t Repeat Yourself

When it comes to a short, one minute video, there’s no reason to rehash information. Every second should be spent on furthering our knowledge about what makes you a Heavy Hitters Original. If you tell us something we just heard, we are not going to listen. If you’ve told us that you’re a tattoo artist, don't repeat yourself and tell us that you tattoo people. Instead, tell us what kind of artwork you do and why it’s original.

Please smoke responsibly in your videos and every day!
