Tips and Tricks for Shooting a Great Video Submission
Your Video Camera
Simply use your smartphone or any camera that records video.
Make sure the brightest light near you is shining on your face and not behind you. Looking towards a window when indoors or putting shadowed areas behind you when outdoors will give you a great image. Don’t stand with your back to something bright like a window or the sky. Also, check your background and make sure there’s nothing embarrassing or confusing back there!
Your smartphone microphone works great. Be certain to record in a quiet area and to talk loudly with excitement!
Turn your smartphone on its side so it’s in landscape/horizontal mode. The image will be short and wide like a TV or movie theatre. Position yourself so that you’re framed from mid-chest to top of your head which is almost the length of your arm. Try to keep the smartphone as still as possible when recording. Have only a tiny space above your head.
- Shoot one long clip and don’t worry about re-do’s or word stumbles.
- Don’t stop and start the smartphone.
- Keep the smartphone rolling even if you decide to re-speak some sentences.
