Tips for Shooting a Great Video

  • If you're using your phone, be sure to turn your phone sideways and shoot HORIZONTALLY.
  • To have great audio, be close to your phone or camera and avoid any loud noises in the background (traffic, television, radio, etc.)
  • Make sure you are well lit. Try to have the light source or sun in front of you to light up your face and avoid shooting with windows behind you. 
  • Steady video looks best. If you are using your computer webcam, make sure it is on a solid surface. If you are using your phone or a camera, prop it up on a table or tripod -- or ask a friend to hold the camera steady and shoot it for you.
