    Hi Ace,

    That's a big question. There's no way I can tell you how to make a good video in one forum message - it's the sort of thing that takes years of learning and practice.

    A few quick tips though:
    - The best thing you can do is concentrate on getting the camera work right. Steady shots are more impressive than flashy wipes.
    - Use special effects if you want but keep them simple. Crossfades and other simple transitions are more professional than star wipes. How you make them will depend on what software you're using.
    - Make sure you think about getting the sound right. Don't just worry about what you see - think about what you hear.

    Depending on how much time you have, read as much of the tutorials in our video section as you can.
