  • Two Minute Video Tips

    1. Use your smart-phone or tablet.
    2. Use a neutral backdrop. An uncluttered, blank wall works best.
    3. Find a quiet room.
    4. No shadows. Make sure your face is clearly lit and in focus.
    5. Use a tight medium frame. The frame should be from the chest up. Be still. The camera should be at eye level, not below, not above.
    6. Sit or stand.
    7. No more than 2 minutes long.
    8. Watch it back before sending. You never know if there will be a tech problem. Make sure it looks and sounds good, and is in focus.
    9. Look your best. Make yourself camera ready (hair, makeup, outfit), and make sure you are well rested.
    10. Speak clearly, be animated (but not crazy), and relax and have fun telling us about YOU!
