Use the LACEY Framework for Every Video You Make

In this podcast episode, Demelza Marie shares the LACEY framework and her top tips for creating high-quality videos.

  • ๐Ÿ“•
    Quality video is like a good book cover, helping you get noticed
  • ๐Ÿ›‘
    People might not give your content a chance if your video is bad
  • ๐Ÿ”ค
    LACEY stands for: Lighting, Audio, Camera, Editing, You
  • ๐Ÿ’ก
    Use studio lightingโ€”don't depend on natural light
  • ๐Ÿ‘€
    Position lights in front of you, not behind, below, or elsewhere
  • ๐Ÿ”†
    Use ring lights for an easier setup, or go advanced with three-point lighting
  • ๐ŸŽ™
    Use an external microphoneโ€”even if attaching it to your phone
  • ๐Ÿคณ
    Use your phone as a cameraโ€”it's good enough to start with
  • ๐Ÿ‘
    Place the camera at eye-level or very slightly above, but never down
  • ๐Ÿค”
    Think about the things you'll want to edit, BEFORE you shoot the video
  • ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿ’ป
    Keep your editing simple, and consider outsourcing if you can
  • ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    Practice being on cameraโ€”do it every day, and you'll get confident

To drip or not to drip?

Are drip courses more effective than self-paced courses for learning?

  • โš–๏ธ
    Self-paced courses are rarely completed, but more immediately actionable
  • ๐Ÿ’ง
    Drip helps learners manage their workload, with time to digest the content
  • ๐Ÿข
    Use drip for complex, sequential content, helping students avoid overwhelm
  • โฉ
    Go with self-paced for content that students need all at once, or
  • ๐Ÿ’ช
    When students are self-driven and can manage their own learning

Teach And Grow Rich

  • ๐Ÿง 
    We're not good at recognising our own talentsโ€”we forget what it is we know
  • ๐Ÿฅฑ
    It's OUR life, so we become numb to what makes us unique and interesting
  • ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ
    True learning comes from teaching othersโ€”articulate what you learn to others
  • ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
    Take something you know, maybe someone wants it, maybe not, but just share it
  • ๐Ÿ”
    The more you try โ†’ the more you're exposed to โ†’ the less you're afraid of trying
  • ๐Ÿ—ฃ
    Give value and starting having conversationsโ€”you don't need to be an expert

Hey, I'm Merott ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

I'm an indie maker and freelance web developer from London.

I'm building my own business, because I'm terrible at following other people, and because I want my work to matter. I hope it will, to you and to your students.

Making progress, slowly and steadily, I'm also documenting and tweeting my journey every Monday @merott .

Thanks for visiting!
