How to Make a TikTok Video

  1. The “Discover” page will also show you the challenges, the dances and the trend tracks.

By the way, Hannah Brown and Tyler Cameron are TikTok’s MVPs.

Step 3: Practice your dance moves (skip this step if you just want to post funny videos).

The little moments of dance choreography are all the rage at the moment. Can we pretend that I didn’t just use the expression “all the rage?” I feel like I’m becoming less cool during this whole experience. Either way, you want to correct your movements, so when you find a dance TikTok you want to try, don’t do it in half.

Here, start with the one you already know. Ashley Tisdale officially brought these High School Musical moves:

If you think you’re more advanced than that, J.Lo has posted a dance challenge of his own and model Jasmine Tookes spent an entire night going down the moves before participating:

We respect the commitment.

Step 4: Make your TikTok

It’s actually a lot easier than you probably think.

@ Jera.Bean is probably the best person to follow if you want to learn how to make different types of TikToks. There are tons of types of videos on this app, from choreography challenges to slideshows to viral memes that require special editing techniques (everything you can master, promise). It would take a lot more than one article to go through them all, so let’s start with a basic change:

  1. Have someone register you OR install a tripod for your phone.

  2. Select the track you want to use.

  3. Press “use this sound”.

  4. Select “Timer” from the list of tools on the right (they are labeled fairly clearly).

  5. Choose the section of the song you want to record and use the countdown to enter the picture.

  6. When you are done, press the timer again and select the next section of the song.

  7. HERE IS.

Am i cool now I think I’m cool now.
