Raw Footage-

Problem & Solution 🤝

Creating a youtube video that is interesting for the audience is not that simple. We should think out of the box to add elements of surprise for the viewer to retain their interest. This was achieved in this video using a high-quality b-roll and other graphic elements.

A major problem with the raw footage was its audio, it had a lot of noise in the background that required serious attention. I used tools in premiere pro to clean up the audio and the client was impressed with the results.


The main aim was to trim the video and make a final product ready to upload on youtube with the following elements-

  • B-roll with transitions to make it interesting.
  • Text animations.
  • Graphic elements such as lower thirds, popping images, etc.
  • Audio cleaning and sound effects to maintain the flow with some slow bgm.
  • Color grading and color correction to tie everything together.

Process 🛣

I started the editing process with the hardest part- cleaning up the audio. This raw footage had a lot of background noise which was making it hard to understand the dialogue.

After cleaning up the audio, I began the trimming process to fix any potential errors while speaking. This process introduced a lot of jump cuts in the footage which don't look professional in a final youtube video. Here's what I did to fix this issue-

  • Used Zoom-ins to hide jump cuts.
  • Added b-rolls and transitions.

This was the third pass in which I usually add the text and motion graphics (lower thirds or other such elements).

Finally added a color grade and exported the final video in high-quality (4K), ready to upload on Youtube.
