CREWSTUDIO tips

1.      Create your video in a quiet place without background noise – be alone if you want to be relaxed.

(Watch out for road noise, aircraft, public speaker systems and air-conditioning hum.)

2.      Make sure your location has good lighting.

(Watch out for windows, bright sunlight, fluorescent lighting and dark rooms.)

3.      For videos of yourself, hold the phone steady at an arm’s length for the best image and sound.

4.      For videos of others, hold the phone steady at an arm’s length for the best image and sound.

5.      Be active. Walk and talk while shooting to give the precise location and context of your video.

(Watch out for traffic, machinery, health and safety requirements, animals and cliffs!)

6.      Be yourself. Practice what you want to say, but don`t script or read your answers off paper.

7.      Be inclusive. Interview colleagues in their real environments using these simple tips.

8.      Less is more with video content. Being concise will only please your audience.
