Thats very deep Christopher, Personally i feel like i still don't plan very well to be honest but i'm starting to learn as i go along. I find that in the editing process i'm sat there like i should have done this or that but i take it on board and try to bring it to the next video. But I've taken the personal decision to allow videos to evolve and any ideas i feel would be great content to add to an existing one while it's still in the edit phase and below the deadline date...
I'm quite a free thinker & i like things things to happen naturally.. it always comes off best on camera because you can feel it!!
there's so much to creating content online and thats the beautiful thing because if you know ure gear and your software the possibilities are virtually endless.
Wishing you the most amount of success dude... Holla! lol
