Ever made this rookie video-creation mistake? I did… 🙂
Some common mistakes when creating videos and presentations are easy to avoid – if you’re aware of them. One mistake that’s easy to make with your videos or presentations is to mix photo and drawn (or even cartoonish) resources. The result is so inconsistent that it simply screams, ‘MADE BY AN AMATEUR’.
Your videos will look better when you get rid of the drawn and cartoonish imagery. Even then, I’ve seen too many videos with clips and images that use diverse color schemes and styles. The resulting video looks not just unprofessional, but also distracts from the message you’re trying to convey to your audience.
How do you improve on it? Carefully applied color correction goes a long way towards making your video look professional and pleasing to the eye. You’ll need a good video editor for the job, and apart from the monetary considerations be prepared to need to invest lots of your time and effort, the learning curve is a steep one.
A simple and fast alternative is going for the beautiful, consistent backgrounds, which you color-match to your branding and topic.
