Instructions & Image Quality
We are asking for a 60 to 90 second max total time for each video Please leave 5-10 seconds before you start and end the recording of the video to leave time for transitioning.
- Choose a location with bright, even lighting that does not cast harsh shadows.
- If you are shooting outdoors, position yourself with the sun high in the sky and behind the camera, or shoot in the shade.
- If you are shooting indoors, turn the ceiling lights on.
- Avoid filming directly in front of windows or other strong light sources.
- Keep your subject’s entire head and shoulders in the frame.
- Leave enough space below the neck to place a name caption.
- Record with your device turned horizontal to resemble a television screen.
**Do not edit or add in your own name plate.**
Centenary University will add this in to create consistency across each video.
Audio quality is often more important than image quality. For best results:
- Position the camera within three to four feet of the subject. If you are farther away, the device’s built-in microphone will pick up room sounds such as heating and air conditioning, and if the subject’s voice is too soft, he/she will have to shout.
- Be aware of the sounds around you when recording outdoors.
