1. Introduction.

Creating video content can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to generating creative ideas, writing scripts, and editing.

With ChatGPT and a video creation tool called Pictory, you can streamline this process by using its language generation capabilities to assist you throughout the entire video creation journey.

Let’s dive into the details!

2. What is ChatGPT?

ChatGPT is an advanced language model developed by OpenAI. It uses deep learning techniques to generate human-like text based on the given prompts. It has been trained on a vast amount of internet text, allowing it to understand and mimic human language effectively.

By leveraging ChatGPT’s capabilities, we can accelerate the process of creating video content.

3. Preparing for Video Content Creation.

Before diving into the video creation process, it’s important to define your video content goals.

Ask yourself, what message do you want to convey? Who is your target audience?

Understanding these aspects will help you create content that resonates with your viewers.

Additionally, scriptwriting and storyboarding play a crucial role in video creation. Develop a clear outline of your video, including the main points you want to cover. This will serve as a roadmap throughout the process.

4. Leveraging ChatGPT for Video Creation.

Generating Video Ideas.

Generating fresh and engaging video ideas can sometimes be a challenge.

This is where ChatGPT can be immensely helpful.

Start by giving ChatGPT a prompt like “Give me video ideas on [topic].” ChatGPT will generate a list of suggestions that can inspire you and spark your creativity.

Writing Video Scripts.

Once you have your video ideas, it’s time to write the script. Start by giving ChatGPT a brief description of your video’s purpose and target audience. Then, give it specific prompts for ChatGPT to generate the script content.

For example:

Prompt: Write an introduction for a video about [topic].
ChatGPT will respond with a text that you can refine and adapt to fit your video’s tone and style. You can iterate this process for different sections of the script, such as the main content, call-to-action, and closing statements.

Voiceover Narration.

If you’re creating a video with voiceover narration, ChatGPT can assist you in generating natural-sounding voiceover scripts. By using prompts like, “Write a voiceover script for a video on [topic],” you can quickly generate text that can be used as a starting point for your voiceover recording.

Remember to review and edit the generated content to ensure it aligns with your desired tone, pacing, and messaging.

5. Adding Visual Elements.

To create a visually appealing video, it’s essential to incorporate relevant visual elements.

If you choose to use the video creation tool mentioned above, it will add visual elements for you automatically.

If you choose not to use the video creation tool mentioned above, you should do the following;

Storyboarding and Scene Selection.

A well-designed storyboard helps visualize the sequence of shots and transitions in your video. Share the video script and specific scene descriptions with ChatGPT to generate ideas for scene compositions and camera angles. This can provide valuable insights and inspiration during the pre-production phase.

Incorporating Images and Graphics

ChatGPT can also assist in suggesting appropriate images and graphics to accompany your video content. Provide specific prompts like, “Suggest images for a video on [topic],” and ChatGPT will generate relevant visuals that you can incorporate into your video.

However, ensure that you have the necessary rights or licenses to use any images or graphics you find.

6. Editing and Post-Production.

Once you have your video script and visual elements ready, it’s time to put everything together through video editing.

Here’s how to proceed:

Video Editing Software.

Choose a video editing software that suits your needs and level of expertise. There are several options available, ranging from beginner-friendly to professional-grade tools. Import your video clips, voiceover recordings, and any visual elements you generated with ChatGPT.

Here at ChatGPT School, we use Pictory to create video content.

Why Pictory?

Well…I’ve tried a few video creation tools, and frankly speaking, they’re all very similar.

The difference that I found with this tool is that for one, you get a 14 day free trial (and that’s a NO CREDIT CARD free trial).

You can use ChatGPT to turn blog posts into video content either by copy and pasting the actual content into the ‘script to video’ tool.

You can also simply copy and paste the blog post URL into the ‘Article to Video’ tool (yellow box in the illustration below).

Pictory will then break up your blog content into smaller portions, and match those ‘portions’ with corresponding video clips.
