CONVERT A VIDEO INTO A WEB STORY
Got an existing video that you want to turn into a web story?
These tips also apply for text – like a blog post.
LET'S GET STARTED
THERE ARE THREE STEPS
Go through your video or script again. Especially when it is a bit older.
What's the core of your video - what do you want to tell in the web story?
Take the core points from the "revisiting"-phase in your web story script.
Create a brief scribble or mock-up to get a feeling for the look of each page.
Always keep in mind: Convey a single idea per story page.
Just a recommendation, before we get to the fun part – the story creation.
Use placeholders for assets to get a feeling for each page.
Now jump into your visual editor of choice.
Create your story page by page with your script.
Optimize your workflow.
YOU ARE ALMOST DONE …
Captions for videos
… but don't forget to attach important metadata!
That’s how we convert a video into a web story. Would you do it differently?
