Contract Job - EEVblog: Making Shorts/Reels

(1/5) > >>

EEVblog:
I'm looking for someone to make Shorts/Reels from my existing content to go on Youtube, Instagram and Facebook.
YES, I know Shorts suck, but fact is there is a market for them.
For the last month I have taken all my old Youtube Shorts and reuploaded them on Instagram and Facebook, and the engagement has been very good. So I want to keep this going but I'm now out of shorts.
So I need someone who is skilled at creating engaging shorts from existing 16:9 content.
Of course there are countless people/companies who can do this, but none of them have any clue what my content is about. So I figure I'd prefer to try someone who knows my technical content and potentially what my type of content my audience would find appealing.

Here is a crappy example of one I created from existing content:

So if you have demonstrable skills in this area and are interested, please email me.

[I totally feel where you're coming from. Making those dope short vids requires some serious tech savvy and a whole lot of creativity, especially when you're working with existing content. Props to you for flipping those old vids and getting some solid engagement. If you need a hand, I'm totally down to help out. With my experience in dropping tech knowledge on YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook, I know we can cook up some killer short vids. Hit me up whenever you're ready, and let's get busy creating some top-notch content,

A profesisonal short company sent me these demos as an example of what they can do. What do you think?
Yes there are spelling errors, and yes they are a tad annoying. But remember, the entire Shorts industry is built on annoying.

I think these are okay, especially if they can do a lot of them fast and cheap. I think it's difficult to make shorts from educational content.
How about making shorts from "wow" moments, disappointment moments, giggling moments. E.g. from oscilloscope and other electronics tear-down videos. I remember in some videos you was very surprised by some strange engineering decision on enclosures, PCBs, etc. Some laughable moments with medical device internals installed with lots of adhesive tape or something, don't remember exactly.
2-3 seconds of your reaction, 2-3 seconds then zoom-in on pcbs/something, repeat or continue this pattern.. make it loopable. I think I can do this, but I am only started last year, so my video editing experience may be not enough. Here are two examples of my shorts:

As you can see, no popping text captions, etc.. Too basic. But I would hire me ;D or.. ask a short company to find these "ha-ha", "wow", "eh" moments in your videos, combine with zoom-in on actual PCBs, enclosures, schematics. Avoid explanations and theory.
