Is your Musical.ly account just sitting there like a dead thing because you have no clue what to do with it or how to make your clips look good so you basically sit in a pool of despair under your covers every night?
NOT TODAY SATAN!
If you want to learn to be the best you have to learn from the best. So we have consulted the Queen of Musical.y and all round good egg, Baby Ariel, for advice on how to take our account to the next level. She commands an army of 16 million Musers so she must be doing something right, right?
Here’s Baby Ariel’s 8 tips on how to slay Musical.ly and become the next big thing:
1. What is your best piece of advice?
Just be yourself! I think, at least for me, I’m just a lot happier when I’m myself. Once I got to the point where I didn’t care what anybody thought of my I was a lot happier and I was able to post really any type of video and ignore the hate and ignore the judgement.
2. To exaggerate facial expressions or to not exaggerate facial expressions?
Really get into character. I really don’t think there’s a too over-exaggerated facial expression. i think the more you’re into the character and the song, the better. If you feel like that facial expression works, then go for it – don’t be scared.
3. What kind of lighting should I use?
For my videos I use my ring light for good lighting, but other than that I really just use my phone, my hands, sometimes i might use my sunglasses or something like that.
4. Should I use costumes?
Definitely use costumes if you wanna do different comedy videos.
5. And what about props?
If I were to use a prop it would probably be my sunglasses, but other than that I mainly just record myself, no probs.
6. Where should I film?
I either film in my room using my ring light or if it’s daytime and the light outside is nice, if it’s a sunny day, then I’ll sit by my window and film there.
7. How do I choose my music?
Use your favourite types of music
8. When is the best time to post?
I would probably suggest not doing the morning as that’s when kids are in school. I like to post for my time between like noon and 4pm. That’s when kids are out of school or about to get out of school and they’re home. Noon to 4pm, maybe 5pm.
Those are my best ones!
