Filming tips:
  • Please speak clearly and slowly.
  • Please do not have any personal/confidential materials in the background.
  • Please be aware of any loud noises in the background that may distract the viewer or make it difficult to hear.
  • When filming your video, make sure to stand somewhere that the light doesn’t obscure the face or cause a glare (do not have a bright light directly behind you, such as a window).
  • Look into the camera as you are speaking.
  • Place the camera at a comfortable angle - generally, either the camera at level with the speaker or slightly above looks best.
  • Try to have your whole face in the shot.
