As more people use video on LinkedIn, you need to work harder to get your video to stand out. I’ve collated some top tools for LinkedIn video that will put a shine on your videos and help them get noticed.

LinkedIn Video: Creation Tools

Even though you can shoot a “talking head” video directly into LinkedIn, you can seize some advantages when you shoot in advance.

You can top and tail it, removing the bit where you fumbled at the start. You can add your logo and branding, edit out mistakes, and enhance your video.

Going Pro With Filmic Pro

The daddy of all iPhone apps for video is Filmic Pro. This tool turns your phone into a multifunctional camera.

By clicking the exposure wheel, you can make sure the viewer sees you, not a silhouette against the sky. But if you want to see the sky, adjust it the other way, so the full glory of a sunset or a blue sky shines out rather than white bright space.

When shooting indoors, you can get rid of that horrible orange hue by adjusting the color and white balance.

And rather than focus on the biggest thing on the screen, use the focus wheel to choose what you want sharp in the frame.

As the name suggests, Filmic Pro is about as pro as you can get with a video tool on mobile. Director Eleanor Mannion used it to shoot her 2016 documentary “The Collectors” for Ireland’s national TV station.

Filmic Pro is available for iOS and Android and costs around $14.99 depending on your region.
