What’s the best process or framework for creating videos that leave an impact?

The truth is that every video creator does things differently. And you’ve got to find whatever works for you. Oz du Soleil is someone who’s found a process that works for him. He’s the host behind Excel on Fire, a YouTube channel that makes Excel tutorials both fun and interesting.

As well his YouTube channel, Oz is also a Microsoft Excel MVP, lead author of Guerilla Data Analysis 2nd Ed., and has several courses on LinkedIn Learning. 

We sat down with Oz to hear his thoughts on video creation and get a look at his process.

He takes us behind the scenes to where it all began, what he’s learned about his own preferences for making videos, and some tips you can use in your own content.

Learning points from the episode include:

  • Why you should treat each video as its own entity
  • How to strike the balance between jokes and informative content in videos
  • Why you should try to create videos that you don’t get elsewhere
  • Why you need to know when to walk away from a video
