How to Create a Professional Look for Food Videos
I hope you've liked the selection of top After Effects templates. Now, if you're wondering how to make professional food videos, here are some cool tips.
Use a Graphics Template
Food video templates are a quick way to make video that looks great and shows off your skills with the skillet. Here are some reasons to think about using a template for your YouTube cookery channel, for example:
- It’s cost-effective. If you don’t have the budget to hire a designer, then using a template can be a great labour-saver: you get great design that's easy to re-use and modify at a fraction of the cost.
- You have control without needing to know design or video software inside out. Many templates allow you to use ‘drag and drop’ facilities and have detailed modular controls, so you can create something quickly and easily.
- Starting from scratch can be hard; a template gives you a good jumping off point and can provide inspiration to work out what you want.
Here are our top tips for making your own food videos:
1. Plan, Plan, Plan
You are no doubt, brilliant at what you do, but unforeseen circumstances happen to us all and you don’t want to have to start from scratch. Plan out your video – make a storyboard if it helps – and script what you’re going to say, even if that’s just loose notes you can follow if you’re a confident presenter. Having these written elements worked out in advance will help you work out what the visual elements of your production need to communicate.
2. Get Some B-Roll
Make life easier on yourself with those tricky edits by getting plenty of b-roll as you go along. You might find you have to do certain steps a couple of times to get everything you need, but it’ll be worth it! Try downloading some high-quality stock footage from Mixkit, which offers free HD videos across a variety of subject areas.
3. Use a Second Camera
It’ll up the interest in your visuals if you add a second camera. If possible, having one shoot from above can be very effective… like a moving flat lay!
4. Use a Tripod
Like poor sound, wobbly footage is bound to have an audience switching off, so be sure to get steady and stable images by using a tripod and keep anything hand-held to a minimum.
