Making good reels can be a fun and rewarding experience. Creating a reel is different for everyone, but there are some common elements you should keep in mind when making your first reel.
The items you can use
To make a reel, you can use your imagination. You can use different items, locations, people, and activities. You can also use music differently to make it sound better than the original song. If you have an editing software that allows you to edit your video clips seamlessly into one seamless piece of footage, this will be ideal for creating reels because they’re so easy to create with little effort!
The length of your reel
You’ll want to ensure your reel is long enough to hold all of your footage but not so long that you have to transfer it from one device to another. The best way to figure out the ideal length for your reel is by testing it on different devices. If you’re using an iPhone, try installing the [Video app](https://www.apple.com/iphone/apps/) and shooting some videos with it; if it crashes every time—or if there’s no sound—your video is too short!
If you’re using an Android phone or tablet (like Google Pixel), try recording some clips on that device before moving onto something like Apple’s iPad Pro 11″ screen, which has a slightly larger maximum resolution than iOS devices, iPhones, 7/8 Plus models etcetera.
Practice with friends
The best way to learn how to reel is through practice; the more you practice, the better you’ll get at it. There’s no way around it: you have to learn by doing.
If you want to make good reels but aren’t sure where or how to start, try practicing with friends who are also interested in learning how-to reels! It doesn’t matter if they’ve been doing it for years or not; what does matter is that everyone wants success and will do whatever it takes—even if that means asking questions along the way—for all parties involved (including yourself) not just survive but thrive together in this new endeavor.
Do what makes you laugh.
Do what makes you laugh.
Sure, there are a lot of things that will make you laugh—it’s hard not to find something funny! But sometimes, the simple things in life can be the most fun. For example, try making a funny face to start your reel if you’re feeling like being silly and having some fun with your friends. Maybe make them laugh by saying “I’m so creative” or “I love this song” before playing back your reel (which should include plenty of good sounds).
- Use headphones.
- Use a microphone.
- Use a camera with an internal mic (or one that comes with its own). This will save you from buying additional gear and can be used on most models, including smartphones and DSLRs. The only downside is that most cameras don’t have built-in mics, so if yours does not, you’ll need to purchase one separately—the same as with the external microphones above!
Good music can make a reel better, but it can also make a reel worse. The key is to find the right balance between the two.
If you have good music on your reel but no other elements that complement it (e.g., video or text), then chances are good that if you were to show it in public without any context or explanation whatsoever, people would think of you as some crazy person who was trying to attract attention by playing with their phone while walking down the street outside their house—which is not necessarily something I’d recommend doing if at all possible!
You can’t go wrong with Greek music. It’s the best, and we’re not just saying that because it’s one of our favorite genres to listen to. The Greek music scene is so good that we have no idea how they do it—it seems like everything they produce is better than anything else you’ll find on iTunes or Spotify.
If you’re looking for more reasons why Greek music is fantastic (and if not, then why are you reading this?), then look no further: here are seven reasons why Greek musicians rule supreme in their field:
If you can’t make good reels, it’s probably because you’re not yourself. That might mean your jokes aren’t funny or are too obvious and expected. But don’t worry—there are ways to make better reels!
One way to try and improve your reel is by doing what makes YOU laugh. Try making funny faces while using the fishing rod as an excuse to poke around in people’s pockets (don’t steal anything). Another way would be if someone tells a funny story about their pet gecko and then ask them, “what did he say?” You’ll probably get some pretty good laughs from this one!
The best part about making reels is that when other people see them, they’ll think it was hilarious too! So why not encourage them by telling everyone else how great YOUR reel looks?
Find a sound
After you’ve chosen your theme and have an idea of what kind of reel it should be, the next step is to find a sound that’s uniquely yours. You don’t have to use this sound for every video, but having one will help set your content apart from other creators’ work in the same space.
There are many ways for you to find this unique sound:
- Take some time off from making videos, and listen! You may find yourself humming music or singing into a microphone while doing chores around the house or walking down city streets (or country roads). If these sounds seem appealing enough, try recording them and incorporating them into future videos as they come up on your schedule. This can also be helpful if someone asks how long something took—you’ll know exactly how long things should take without actually counting seconds!
Find your vibe
It’s essential to find your style, but it’s also essential to find what makes you laugh. It probably won’t be successful if a reel doesn’t make you laugh.
When making a reel, I try to imagine what kind of person would enjoy watching my videos and how they might react when they see them. This can become tricky because there are so many people out there! But if we try our best and make something that feels honest enough for us, then hopefully, someone else will like it too!
If nothing else works for you, then maybe think about why certain things seem funny or awkward. If we’re struggling with this question, maybe one day someone will come along who knows precisely what makes their eyes roll back into their head with laughter (or just plain old eye rolling).
Ask yourself what you want to convey.
The first thing to do is ask yourself what you want to convey. Are you trying to show off your skills, or are you trying to tell a story? If so, how? What is the message or purpose behind this reel?
If it’s unclear yet, then take some time to think about all of these things before making your reel.
Make good reels!
It’s important to remember that what you think is good isn’t always what everyone else will like. Don’t worry about other people’s thoughts; don’t be afraid to make mistakes. If you’re not sure how to do something, ask for help!
If anyone ever tells you, “I don’t know how to do that,” or “you’ve got this wrong,”… smile and say: “That’s okay! We can figure it out together.”
something about how to start
- Start with the first line.
- Make sure it’s a good one.
- Think about what you want to say and how you want to say it.
- Think about how you want your audience (or yourself) to feel after reading that line of text or hearing that sound effect/music track/video clip in which it appears for the first time on their screen or phone screen as they scroll through Twitter or Facebook feeds where many people are sharing content from similar sources like Instagram stories but with differing degrees of quality control when creating content.
Go for a walk on a nice day.
- Go for a walk in the park.
- Go for a walk in the woods.
- Go for a mountain walk, where you can find lovely scenery and fresh air!
- If you don’t have time to get outside, there are other ways to enjoy nature: see your favorite movie at night (with snacks from home), hike up Mount Everest, or volunteer at an animal shelter instead!
something about angles
Angles are important.
The camera angle and the subject matter of your reel are the two most important factors that determine how good it will look on film, so you want to ensure they’re both right. The camera’s angle is determined by which direction it’s facing and whether or not it has any lens filter attached (if so, what kind). This affects how far away from you we can see everything; if our view is distorted or off-center because there’s too much space between us and our subject, then we won’t be able to tell what’s happening in front of us—which means no one will watch your reel!
Another way angles affect compositional value is through lighting. If there’s too much light coming from behind or above us (which tends to happen when filming outdoors), then our eyes will have trouble adjusting quickly enough for clarity; this could lead viewers away from watching instead toward looking at other things like furniture items around them instead.”
experiment with the music
Music is an integral part of creating a reel. The music you choose for your reel can help set the tone for your film and give it a sense of place, but it’s also important to experiment with different types of music so your audience won’t get bored.
There are two main ways to approach this:
- Choose music similar to the movie you’re making (or similar to other films in this genre). If you’re making a horror film, try using scary music; if you’re making an adventure comedy, use upbeat tempos and electric guitars instead of piano keys and violins. This will help keep viewers engaged by having something familiar while still being fresh enough not to be too generic or dull compared to other films’ scores at any given moment during production!
Make it fun
Making it yours is one of the best ways to ensure that your reel is fun. If you’re using a template, feel free to tweak it until it looks exactly like what you want. Or if there’s some aspect of the reel that bugs or annoys you, change that part! Your reel should be unique and special in its own right.
You can also add some extra elements like music or sound effects if they fit your theme (and if they’re legal). The more effort put into ensuring everything about this project feels right for YOU—the creator—the better chance we have of creating something truly memorable.
Let the song guide you.
The best way to create a reel is by listening to the music and letting it guide you. You can use your imagination, but if you’re unsure how or where to begin, don’t worry! Just think about what feels suitable for the song and then take things from there. Don’t be afraid of experimentation—make sure that whatever happens in your reel is fun and exciting!
This is the takeaway.
This section will look at the main things you need to know about making good reels.
- It would help if you had a good story and an exciting cast of characters. This is the most important thing! If your reel isn’t full of interesting characters and has a compelling backstory, then it might not do very well. Make sure that every character has some interesting relationship with another character (or multiple other characters) so that when they’re talking about their lives or backgrounds together as friends or family members or co-workers—whatever—you can quickly see how they interact with each other in real life as well as how they interact with others throughout their lives. It’s also essential for each character’s role in their plotlines and subplots; if there aren’t enough details here, then people won’t be able to follow along at all because there may not be enough information onscreen when watching movies/TV shows/shows online without subtitles available unless someone else does some heavy lifting first by writing essays explaining everything beforehand instead of watching them first-hand live action footage shot offscreen later downstream
