If you're someone who produces content, then you understand the alluring distraction that comes with the process. Every turn of this journey presents an invitation for a sidetrack – an overnight research on the latest video cameras, or a week-long quest for the perfect second brain system for your content outline. Today, I'd like to help put a stop to this by demonstrating how simple my process is.
I use a tool called ClickUp, and while it happens to be the medium I use, the reason for this video isn't to sway you into becoming a ClickUp user. The goal is to show you how real – and unsophisticated – my process is, that you may find a method that works for you.
Within ClickUp, my workspace is titled screencasting.com. In this workspace, I have one list which I've simply labelled "Videos". This straightforward compartmentalization is what I believe makes the tool easy to use; your thoughts are orderly arranged and easy to access.
At every point of content production, there will be a desire to get super distracted doing something else. You should do the simplest thing possible.
How then do I break down my content? It's pretty straightforward: I divide it into modules or sections such as Introduction, Content, Equipment, the Recording, and Editing.
Then I go a step further: for each video, I assign a status like 'dictated', 'recorded', 'edited', 'tech approval', 'final edit', and 'complete'. This process helps me stay glued to my path and prevent any distractions because I know at every point what I need to do next.
Following a linear process is recommended as new video ideas often come up while recording.
