Tips for a Great Video
Set the stage
- Find a quiet place to film
- Pick a sunny room during the day
- Make sure your light source is facing you, not behind you
- Hold the phone horizontally or “landscape”
- Have someone else take the video, use a tripod, or prop up/hold the camera far enough away so that you like how you are framed
- Avoid digital zoom
Watch the Time
- Try to keep the video at approximately 30-60 seconds
- Don’t rush! Speak clearly and pause in between sentences
