Reels Challenge by Safronova
Day 3 Preparation

Preparing for Reels Shooting

Today is the day to finalize the search for the most interesting ideas in your niche and get ready for shooting.

Choose 2-4 Reels based on the structure you selected yesterday. Plan how and where you will shoot. Consider what you will need for this. Perhaps you will need to go somewhere or purchase specific items. Choose a well-lit location.

Prepare the equipment. Review once again the reels you will use as examples. Envision the entire shooting process. Make sure nothing distracts you from it tomorrow. You can shoot handheld or use a tripod. It will be much easier with a tripod.

Prepare the tripod or use makeshift items like a cup or a book as a phone stand like in this example. Get video lighting ready if you have it. Ensure that what you are shooting is well-lit.

Tomorrow, I'll provide a video lesson on shooting Reels.

Now you have found ideas. Your task is to recreate a similar video using the same caption and Reels structure. If the music is still trending, you can use the same music. If the music has been used for a long time, check other accounts you selected, see which music recent Reels gained more views with, and use that.

Choose Reels that you can create. Select those that seem easy to you. For now, avoid Reels with complex editing unless you know how to do it. If you do, feel free to choose any.

However, simpler is better, because, regardless of how complex the editing is in your Reels, they are likely to be 5-second clips with millions of views, shot simply in one frame. To get Reels into recommendations, there are additional tricks beyond interesting editing that you will learn in this challenge.

Choose simple videos for creating Reels. It's preferable that they are 5-8 seconds.

Today, you've done a great job brainstorming ideas, and soon we'll start shooting them! Tomorrow, we'll be preparing for the shoot of these ideas!
