How to Make a Great Video.
Step 2: Keep it Short.

Themes? (The horror.) Motifs? (The terror.) Symbols? (Someone save me, please!)

Actually, writing and talking about these topics doesn’t have to be a fright fest. You want to know how to make a good video. Or how to make a GREAT video. You want to be awesome on YouTube. You've come to the right place.

We focus on making videos about literature that people will want to watch. And that's what we talk about here. BUT whether your video is about books, or gadgets, or magic tricks or social media marketing...or how to kiss, you'll want to know these principles of selecting, organizing, and presenting ideas.

At 60sR, we practice what we preach, so we won't waste your time. Start here with Recap 1: Picking a topic, then move through the playlist. Within 10 minutes, you'll be ahead of 99% of the folks on YouTube ... and everywhere else. Really.

Check out 60second Recap's complete seven-video mini-series, "Write the greatest essay ever! (Or just an essay that won't put your teacher to sleep)".

Recap Resource also offers a video-based Dictionary of Terms with explanations of key literary concepts--such as metaphor, symbols, motifs--and a video tutorial on How to Make Your Own Recap-style videos. Subjects covered include picking your topic, focusing your presentation, writing your script, editing yourself, propsgraphics, and what to do once you're done!
