How to put together a video montage

But sometimes, it seems that writing a text is still easier than filming and editing a video montage. To some extent, this is true if there is no skill in working with the right tools. So how to edit the montage in this case?

For a start, there's no best way to make a video montage – it all depends on what emotions you want to evoke. Watch some funny and dramatic videos, and you will notice the difference in their presentation. However, it's not necessary to use heavily stylized editing because even a simple montage may interest the viewer.
