How to make a video diary film

A day in the life of a software engineer will be something new and exciting for a firefighter — and vice versa. Even the day of a housewife is not that simple, not even mentioning real estate agents or police officers.

Of course, you don't have to shoot everything, from dawn till dusk. Prepare a series of short chunks with the key episodes: what you do in the morning, what your routing work day looks like, something funny, something touching.

Then, combine all the recordings in a "one-day video" with the help of Clideo's free online service. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Upload all the videos to the tool

    Open Clideo’s Video Editor in any browser. Hit the "Get Started" button.

    A hint! Save all your recordings to the same folder and use a bulk uploading.

  2. Turn them into a journal

    Add the chunks to the timeline one after another in the correct order. If you want to cut out any awkward moments, use the "split" function that you can find at the top left of the timeline. You can also use the yellow handles to change the duration of each snippet.

    In the "Text" section, you can add some subtitles to explain what is going on on the screen and leave some comments. You may also add a voiceover, upload an audio file as videos before using a "+" sign and drag it to the timeline.

  3. Save the result

    When you are sure you've done all you can, hit "Export" and select the resolution. Some of the options require updating to a Clideo Pro account.
