The availability of high-end video cameras and software in the marketplace has made indie films a permanent staple in the profitable entertainment business. Independent films have opened the doors to unleash new found creativity in the making of quality films. Websites such as YouTube are a popular form of entertainment for millions of people around the world.
Visual entertainment has been part of our daily lives for more than a generation. Most people spend a considerable amount of time watching the latest shows on television making the film business one of the most lucrative in the world.
But did you know that an average person can make money by sharing videos online? There are websites on the Internet that will pay money to post your videos online and it’s surprisingly simple and addictive to do.
Specifically, high quality video that pertains to any particular do-it-yourself job has become hugely popular amongst the DIY crowd. Watching rather than having to read an instruction manual (and being able to watch online rather than rent or buy a DVD) is a big time and money saver for those that like to take on new DIY projects.
You can make a video for every conceivable niche possible, ranging from how to change a car battery to how to make a bar stool from surplus materials (like maybe a tractor seat, for example). Unless you have the luxury of knowing video lighting or having access to someone that does, a good rule of thumb is to make sure to provide adequate amounts of light so that at least everything you shoot is easily visible on camera.
If you are already a video professional or hobbyist, and haven’t yet tried the idea of making money by sharing how-to videos, give it a try. The wonders of the Internet have enabled ordinary people to display their extraordinary talents online while raking in some extra cash in the process.
