When it comes to meeting someone for romance, dating, marriage or friendship, a simple video clip with soft music is one way to advertise your personal details. You can hire a videographer to put together a nice clip, but it will probably cost you an arm and a leg. If you have disposal income, than go for it. However, if you are on a limited or fixed income, you may want to create your own video or have a college student majoring in film to make your video, as a class project, to fulfill his or her credits. There are many movie-making software on the market, from simple to elaborate, and your computer probably has a couple of movie making programs, namely Windows Movie Maker or Muvee Auto Producer. Both of these programs are easy to use, and you can always upgrade for more features, styles and special effects.
If you decide to produce your own personal video, make it simple. Give a brief introduction about yourself, which you think may be of interest to the viewer, such as your age, occupation, education and income level, special interests or hobbies, physical attributes or other characteristics and contact information. You want to piqué the audiences’ interest in you and not overshadow your video with long-winded talk. When putting together your video, a 30 to 60 second promo should be adequate.
