How to record your video  

1. Short and Sweet 

  • less than 3 minutes 
  • no dodgy content  

 2. Nice and Steady  

  • Make sure you film in landscape (that’s holding your phone sideways) 
  • Place your camera/phone on a table or use a tripod to keep the video steady  
  • You can film from your phone, computer or video camera  

 3. Light and Bright  

  • Make sure we can see you clearly  
  • If you are inside, turn on the lights and don’t stand with a window behind you 
  • If you are outside, make sure you are facing toward the sun 

 4. Loud and Clear  

  • We want to hear you, so make sure the sound is clear and not distorted 
  • Make sure you video in a quiet environment  
  • Don’t stand too far away from the camera 

 5. Practice and Critique  

  • Whether you are entering as an individual or a group, its best to practice your talent before you record it. Show your friends or family, they might have some helpful tips 
  • It’s okay to record it again if you think it could be better or the quality of the recording isn’t good
