    This is what I do:

    1. Choose the topic to shoot the video
    2. Research little bit to get finer details to add to what I know
    3. Write a gist/summary of key points with section and sub section
    4. I shoot around afternoon as I rely on sunlight from windows.
    5. Make sure camera battery has optimal level to sustain for 30mins.
    6. Start shooting. 1 shot per section whether 1 or multiple takes. Repeat shot if it didn't come properly keeping video recording.
    7. Record voice overs (if required)
    8. Edit all later.

    Here is my general outline of what I do:

    1st, I think of the video. This can be the hardest part, to think of the actual idea for what to make a video about.
    2nd, After thinking of the idea, I write a script surrounding that idea.
    3rd, I record the audio several times to make sure there's no annoying background noise (not all in one, rather like different clips)
    4th, I play a game to get some gameplay footage. Sometimes it's hard to find a new game so that I'm not playing the same game over and over again in every video.
    5th, I edit. I put the audio together, add any pictures/effects I want to, put the gameplay footage, add any titles, etc;
    6th, I upload. I try to do this about every 4 days, although there is no official schedule.

    A lot of my videos are just spur of the moment videos where I just pull out my phone and start recording. Certain videos though my main thing is getting the lighting right, getting the angle I want, and setting up the camera settings to get the effects I want. Then the video gets executed and I see what I captured. A lot of my tripod slow motion videos I actually plan out, the ones where I'm not using a tripod are usually just spur of the moment captures.

    I usually just think of an idea I want to do a video for and plan it out in my head and then turn the camera on and roll with it. I never use a script because I want it to be all in the moment!

    1. Choose a topic that I think will promote interest among my viewership
    2. Begin researching said topic and decide upon which points to include in my voice over
    3. Write, edit and record a script for the video
    4. Add visual aids on top of the voiceover and then make sure to share the video across several websites and communities

    Well, so far our videos have been planned out just days in advance. Which in my opinion is a horrible way to do Youtube when you have such a large family and strict upload dates. (currently twice a week). I've been thinking of ways to improve upon the pre-production of my videos. Its kind of a "what do you want to do for Friday" and that's usually followed by IDK lol. We come up with an idea and just go with it.

    1. Think of the idea.
    2. Think of a title and write it down.
    3. Write down a script if the video is not a live gameplay.
    4. Then do some tag research on the topic.
    5. Write a short text explaining the video that I put at the top of the description.
    6. Record everything
    7. Edit the video
    8. Thumbnail
    9. Upload
    10. Social Media :D
