  • [music starts playing]

  • Hi! I am Jessica. I'm a deaf YouTuber

  • and that was my lovely wife that I was dancing with.

  • People ask me a lot how I edit

  • But particulary when it comes to music.

  • Spoiler: It's visual

  • So I though I would make a video that kind of explains that little more.

  • And I had this really cute clips of us dancing so--

  • They just got included, it's all good. You're welcome!

  • [Jessica's voice] Editing a sit down video is hard enough

  • but at least I know when I pause.

  • And can then remove that section.

  • I can also see that I raised my hand and put a graphic on top.

  • I can also lip read to see exactly where I am in the script

  • and then just add a cute effect on top!

  • You'll note that was all without music though

  • so let's go back to the start!

  • [Jessica's voice] For a talky video I'll just choose the track

  • that's already been chosed by one of my helpers and that I know fits the theme.

  • 'Cause I don't always get it right.

  • But I want to show you the amazing dance class

  • that Claudia and I had with Katy Cobalts.

  • Yes, my wife is so sweet that even though she hates the Charleston

  • she learned to keep time for me.

  • Just because-- I can't do it myself.

  • [music starts playing]

  • [music changes]

  • [Jessica's voice] OK, OK!

  • [same music comes back]

  • How did that just happen?

  • Well, to be honest, Claudia edited that but--

  • [Jessica's video clone] But I can do it too!

  • Indeed you can!

  • So I start at the opposite end for a montage piece

  • I'll find the music first and then put the clips together.

  • [Jessica's voice] I use Epidemic Sound for all of my music!

  • It's an audio library with songs, audio clips, and effects

  • that are all YouTube friendly.

  • So you can still monetize your content when you use their songs!

  • You pay a mothly fee and they have access to literally

  • tens of thousands of tracks!

  • They're not sposoring me or anything I just genuinely find it so helpful!

  • You can also then share that music on Twitter, or Facebook, or Instagram

  • and not get hit by any copyright claims!

  • [Jessica's voice] I find it so helpful for people like me

  • who edit visually. Every track is a number of keywords

  • that means you can cross search for your perfect song

  • It also shows you the genre of music, the category

  • or style, and the beats per minute with a listing for energy

  • So, if I need a fast track

  • [fast music playing]

  • I can easily find that and if I need a slow track

  • [slow music playing]

  • I can easily find that!

  • [Jessica's voice] I find it particulary helpful being able to see the up-and-down thingies

  • before I download the track, and also

  • be able to isolate and download individual stems

  • The first thing I do is visually examine the track

  • noticing any large peak and troughs with a marker

  • I then load clips into the timeline and shorten to fit

  • between the markers.

  • Since this video is about dancing and the footwork is specific

  • I make sure feet hit the floor every time the music peaks.

  • It takes a long time--

  • If your next question is:

  • "But how exactly do you dance when you can't hear the music?"

  • The answer is-- badly.

  • The Charleston's really regulated so,

  • as long as I follow someone else for the first eight beats

  • I'm good to go!

  • Unless I lose it or the music changes.

  • [instructor's voice couting steps]

  • [music slowly gets higher]

  • So, there you go, how I dance and how I edit

  • all in one video!

  • It's a two-for-one video!

  • Exciting!

  • Plus-- lesbians dancing!

  • I hope that answered your questions about how on Earth

  • a deaf YouTuber edits!

  • I'll put a link in the descrition and all that, but--

  • What I really want to know is what style of dancing

  • you think we should try next!

  • But the Charleston was pretty easy, because it's

  • Well, "easy" because it's quite regulated

  • But I really want to [?] next. Swing dancing!

  • Claud's gonna hate it! But I'm gonna love it!

  • Subscribe for more deaf lesbians!

  • Alright, the same deaf lesbian

  • but I make two videos a week so-- yeah, you get more!
