Helpful Hints for Recording

  • Place the camera level with your eyes, and oriented in landscape ("widescreen") mode.
  • Ensure your head and shoulders are visible and well lit; leave minimal space above your head in the image.
  • Look into the camera when recording (this may mean taping your script to a wall behind your camera, or enlisting a friend to quietly hold it).
  • If recording in a room with windows, arrange your chair and camera so the windows are behind the camera, and not behind you.
  • Record with your computer or device's Camera app, or another video-recording app or program.
  • After starting the recording, find your position and wait 3 seconds before beginning.
  • When you finish speaking or performing, wait 3 seconds, while holding your position, before stopping record.
