Monday, June 19, 2023 by Gemma Wilkins | Digital Marketing

Hey there, fellow music enthusiasts! I recently had a pin go a bit nuts on Pinterest about making short form videos without showing your face or walking so today, I want to dive into the exciting world of short form videos, where you can captivate your audience without uttering a word or revealing your beautiful face.

The Art of Visual Storytelling

Who needs words when you can tell a story through visuals? Use your creativity to compose visually captivating videos that convey your message. Whether it's showcasing your favourite music gear, demonstrating cool techniques, or sharing snippets of amazing melodies, let your visuals do the talking. 


Examples could be: Post that glimpses into daily life including travel, achievement or significant events - record small snippets of these times and allow your audience to understand what you are up to. 


Groove to the Rhythm of Editing

Editing is your secret weapon! Slice and dice your footage to create snappy, dynamic videos that leave your viewers wanting more. Use jump cuts, transitions, and visual effects to enhance the rhythm and pace of your content. Remember, a well-edited video is like a perfectly orchestrated symphony – it keeps your audience hooked from start to finish.


An example could be a Behind-the-scenes posts thata sneak peek into the creation process, whether it's showcasing the making of a product, the setup for an event, or the behind-the-scenes moments of a project. These posts provide a more intimate look into the behind-the-scenes aspects of a person's work or life and don’t need to have commentary or faces. 


Embrace the Power of Subtitles

While your videos may not feature spoken words, adding subtitles can be a game-changer. Subtitles allow viewers to follow along with ease, even in noisy environments or without sound. Plus, they're a great way to highlight key points, lyrics, or engaging questions. So, let those subtitles groove to the beat!


Something like a  “How-to” or tutorial post and provide step-by-step instructions in the captions or demonstrations on a specific skill or topic. These are designed to educate and help others learn something new, whether it's a DIY project, a cooking recipe, a makeup tutorial, or a fitness routine.


Let Music Take Center Stage

As music teachers, we know the power of melodies, harmonies, and rhythms. Use your favourite tunes as the backbone of your videos. Showcase different genres, instruments, or music styles to create an audio-visual feast for your audience. Remember, music is the universal language that connects us all. 


If you are okay to allow other body parts be a part of your videos think of ways your hands, legs, body or movement can integrate into the music that you choose for the reel. 


An example here could include funny memes, videos, jokes, or lighthearted anecdotes that resonate with the audience's sense of humour. These posts help create a sense of connection and entertainment within the online community.


Embody the Mystery, Embrace the Persona

Sometimes, a touch of mystique can be magnetic. Play with personas or characters in your videos – be a silent maestro, a masked performer, or an enigmatic virtuoso. Let your imagination run wild and give your viewers a sense of intrigue. After all, a little mystery can go a long way in capturing attention.

Call to Action: The Power of the Silent Nudge

Whether it's directing them to your website, encouraging them to subscribe, or suggesting they explore related products or services, a well-placed nudge can make all the difference. Hand gestures, stickers and captions can be used to enforce a call to action.
