I like trailers because unlike all the other videos, they are there as a summary of what the channel does. A description is cool, but A: not everyone will read it and B: it gives a better feel for somebody's channel.
There's a channel on this site called Fresh Brownies, I think. They make good trailers that really, explain what you're getting into by pressing subscribe.
My trailer on the other hand is basically just a definition of tenacity and then a montage of my dancing. I'm not very proud of it and would like to make a more professional looking one.
Bottom line, give it the same tone as your other videos, but a summary-like structure.
That's pretty much what I've tried to do but I wanted to say a few different things that extended my video to about 3 minutes long... all others I've seen are from 30 seconds to a minute
Anyway I was able to chop it up and bit and leave only REALLY important info but it's still 1.5 min long! Everyone's telling me to make it shorter but I just don't know how, all the info I want in there takes over a min to talk about[DOUBLEPOST=1491772160,1491771970][/DOUBLEPOST]Thanks to everyone for the replies
I ended up cutting my channel trailer a little bit and shrinking it down to a minute and a half... I guess for a trailer still a little long but I'm pretty happy with it and it contains all the information that I wanted to contain. You guys think it HAS to be under a minute or is a minute and a half ok?
I'm just really not sure how else to condense it and what else to cut out
I'm thinking, in the future when I have more videos up, I'll do a montage of some of my vids with a voiceover.. but right now I don't have too many uploads so I have to just explain verbally what my channel is about.
