How hard can it be to produce popular pet content?
Pets are a reminder of everything right in the world: cute, pure, and easy on the eyes. You would imagine that it’s quite HARD to post a bad pet video. But that being said, just how EASY is it to create a viral pet video?
Below, we break down the tips and tricks to not only tap into what’s trending, but how to create the next viral pet video.
Keep Your Finger On the Pulse of What’s Trending
Research is king. A quick scroll through your timeline or For You Page can offer a snapshot of content that users deem click-worthy or skip-worthy. Pay attention to the engagement and likes of the content that catches your eye. Tapping into a viral trend is an easy way to gain exposure and some traction, however, a saturated trend makes the likelihood of your video going viral a bit more difficult.
Rather, try honing into content or videos you see potential in. There are a lot of half-baked ideas on social media. You can find a seed of inspiration scrolling through under-the-radar videos. Not only does it allow you to flex your creative muscle, but it also allows you to build upon an idea and make it your own.
Sync to the Beat: Select the Right Music
You might think that the best course of action is to use sounds and songs that are already trending. Most viral videos are informed by a sampled sound bite or trending song. However, if you want to be a true trailblazer in the landscape of viral pet videos, you should use these sound bites to inspire your own unique music selection.
With pet videos, jaunty, upbeat songs are generally the way to go. Explore the KineMaster music library to select a copyright-free song that conveys your pet’s personality, humor, and all-around idiosyncrasies. Selecting the right song helps you visualize how the video will unfold and the accompanying footage, while allowing your pet video to stand out.
Use KineMaster’s Bookmarking Tool
After selecting the right beat, you want your video clips to fall in sync with your vision. KineMaster’s Bookmark tool makes aligning clips with precision easy. The bookmarking tool leaves a mark on your Timeline and lets you tap to jump to places you’ve designated as important for easy editing and syncing.
To create a bookmark, tap the numbers displayed on the top of the Playhead. The Playhead will change color from red to purple to show a bookmark has been created. You can navigate between bookmarks by tapping and holding on to the numbers in the playhead. A pop-up bookmark panel will open, allowing you to jump from one cute pet clip to the other with ease and precision.
