This short shows what you can do with the skills and processes taught in Episodes 1-4 of the Budget Beginner’s Tutorials. Essentially, you can make punchy videos about your life, hobbies and holidays. Because I wanted to make a YouTube Short, this video had to be less than 60 seconds long. So, the main challenge […]
This tutorial wraps up the basic knowledge that you need to edit your first home video end-to-end. Exporting is the process where you create a new video file incorporating all the edits. In this tutorial, I explain the concepts of file formats, codecs, and bit rates. One extra tidbit over and above what’s in the […]
When I first started learning how to make videos, I needed a lot of trial and error to get to a decent(ish) end product. Therefore, I created this series to help people learn how to make videos using free tools. Instead of parading software features, I want to share practical tips step by step. This […]
Hi everyone! This weekend, I managed to complete Episode 2 of the Budget Beginners Tutorials. In this episode, I start by explaining the structure of the timeline.

Today’s short about pampered Singaporeans talks about food. After all, where else is food a national pastime?
This week, I’m doing a series of shorts on how pampered Singaporeans are. And day 1 is a topic very close to my heart. In Singapore, we have no idea how troublesome it is to get rid of rubbish elsewhere!
Oh man, I have project ADD! Before even finishing my planned November project, I’ve started a mega-undertaking. So in fact, this new idea may take over from my original plan of creating 30 shorts in 30 days. Youtube has a ton of beginner video tutorials. Yet, I still haven’t found a single one-stop shop that […]
Here’s my first try at a cooking vlog. It is not a tutorial, though the recipe is semi-original. I found it in the now-gone Japanese Food Report blog, but over the years I’ve changed the ingredients and amounts. But filming cooking on portrait, with a smart phone, was not easy. I used books to prop […]
