Micro skills into macro skills

Take video editing for example. If you want to learn it, there are a number of tricks of the trade that you have to get accustomed to. One great way to do that is to make a whole lot of videos, but there’s a way in which you can amplify the results.

Each time you make a new video, try to focus on developing a certain video-making skill. On my video about Shintoism and Buddhism in Japan, I focused on probably more than I should have; music, getting the right shots, creating movement out of static images, but this time I tried something different.

This time I tried to work on speaking to the camera. I sat down in a comfortable place, and faced the camera. The video’s just processing right now, but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out (although, I may have filmed it with the wrong settings).

This latest video helped me realise that for something like video editing, where there are a number of projects that you work on, each video you can use to work on a micro skill. Make projects designed for a specific micro skill, and then combine that to build your macro skills, and with enough practice, you’re Golden 🙂
