Tips for Making Good Videos:

  • Use a tripod or set your camera down – Stabilizing your camera or cell phone will drastically improve the quality of your video and remove shakiness
  • Good lighting is important – Avoid standing in front of windows or other bright lights inside. Go outdoors during the day and you can pretty much guarantee good lighting.
  • Good audio – Avoid noisy places. Stay close enough to your camera so that the microphone picks up your voice.
  • Use the high-quality settings on your camera or phone – If your video is uploaded and the quality is very bad, you may not qualify to win.
