Before making a disc golf video, there are 5 things to consider. These things will help you make better videos and ultimately help your channel grow.
1. Video Length – If you have ever watched disc golf on YouTube, you know that most are under 10 minutes long. This is for a couple of reasons: people do not want to watch long videos and the longer the video, the more likely it is to lose viewers. A good rule of thumb is to keep the length of your video closer to 5 minutes than 10 minutes.
2. Background Music – Most videos use background music to set the mood of the video or even as a theme song for their channel. It’s a great way to add some personality to your videos and also make them more enjoyable for viewers. Just be sure that you are using copyright free music and not something from a major label like Sony or Universal Music Group. If you do use something like this, it will get flagged by YouTube’s Content ID system and either muted or removed altogether.
3. Video Editing – This can be tricky if you are new to editing videos but there are many free programs out there that allow anyone with basic computer skills edit their own content easily! I would recommend Adobe Premiere Pro CC as my top choice because it
This is the first in a series of articles about making disc golf videos. These articles are based on my experiences making the Innova Factory Store San Diego’s “Understable” video series, but I think that my lessons apply to anyone who wants to make a disc golf video.
The most important thing you can do before you begin filming is to have a plan. Here are 5 things you should think about before you start shooting your next disc golf video:
1. What is your goal?
2. What kind of story do you want to tell?
3. Who is your target audience?
4. Where will your video be viewed?
5. How long do you want your final video to be?
The people who watch a lot of disc golf videos are some of the most loyal and passionate fans. They are also quick to judge and comment. However, if you treat them with respect, they will reward you ten-fold.
Video is a powerful medium that can be used to help build your brand, develop your audience, establish trust, and create community. There are many ways to produce good content that can help serve your needs. Here are some things to think about before making a disc golf video:
There are many things to think about when you begin to make a disc golf video. When I first started out I had no idea what direction I wanted to go in. But after making several videos, I have learned a few things.
1. Where do you want your video to be seen?
2. What type of video do you want to make?
3. How long do you want your video to be?
4. What equipment do you need?
5. Do you have the time to make the video?
When deciding what type of video you want to make there are two main categories: A disc golf course review or an informational or instructional video. Course review videos can range from being very simple (a review without any footage of the course) to being very complex (a review that includes multiple camera angles and slow motion footage). An informational/instructional video is a little more complicated than a course review, but it can also be very beneficial for you or your company if done correctly. You need to know what you will be talking about and it helps if you have some notes prepared before filming begins. Before making this type of video, ask yourself whether or not people will really want to watch this type of content. Is
Disc golf videos are great. They can provide a lot of enjoyment for people. They can be informative, entertaining or both. If you’re interested in making a disc golf video here are some things to consider before you start creating your masterpiece.
1. The purpose of the video
What is the purpose of your video? Is it for entertainment only or do you want to inform and educate? Maybe it is a combination of both. For example, if you want to create an instructional type video then you will have to think about what topic you want to cover, how you are going to approach it and what video clips will support your points.
2. The audience
Who is your target audience? Depending on who your audience is will determine what type of equipment and editing software you will use. If your audience is people who play disc golf at all levels then there’s no need to get too fancy with special effects and music unless that’s what you really like doing.
3. Getting Started
The first step in making your video will be to decide what equipment you need. You should also consider how much time and money (if any) you want to invest in this project and whether or not it is something that
I’ve been making disc golf videos for a few years now and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some great players and some not so great players. Here are a few tips that I’ve picked up along the way.
The first thing you want to do is make sure that you are working with a good player. You can have the best camera in the world, but if your player is bad then no one is going to watch. If you don’t have many players available try to find someone who is really enthusiastic even if they aren’t particularly good. A good example of this would be: .
The second thing is to make sure that you have adequate lighting. Nothing can ruin a video more than bad lighting. Try to find an area that has plenty of natural light and if possible use a reflector (see images) for better results.
Thirdly, make sure your camera isn’t shaking too much when you are filming. You can use a tripod or if you don’t have one, just brace yourself against something solid like a tree or something.
Also, make sure that your camera is in focus before you start recording and check it every so often while you are filming as sometimes they can change on their own (especially when using auto

In the first blog post, I want to talk about creating videos for disc golf. Not everyone can afford to make a video like we do, but many people have made some great videos on their own and I am going to give you a few things that you should think about before you start shooting footage.
1) Why are you making this video? Are you doing it for fun? Just because you want to show people how awesome your buddy throws? Are you trying to make money? Are you trying to get sponsors? Are you trying to help grow the sport?
2) What is your target audience? Are you going for the casual disc golfer who plays 1-2 times a month, or are you going for the hard core fan who follows all of the pros and watches every tournament live on
