​Tips

Do a sound check: Limit as much unnecessary background noise as possible and take steps to eliminate feedback caused by echoing.
Check settings: Before shooting make sure that in your phone, laptop, or camera settings that you’re shooting in HD (1080p or higher) and in a 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio.
Shoot horizontally: Shooting sideways will make sure your video fits in nicely with other submissions.
Lighting: Use natural lighting when possible. However, if you cannot, you can use the lights in your house to create a three-point lighting setup. Do not let yourself be backlit. Use a window as a light source instead of a background. The subject of your video should always be brighter than what is behind it.
Camera positioning: Make sure your camera is at or above eye level. This will provide a more flattering angle than if you’re looking down at your laptop or phone. Try to have your eyes level on the upper horizontal line using the rule of thirds to look like a pro.
Background: Pay attention to the background. White walls are fine but a little boring. Shooting your video with some open space behind you can add depth to the shot.
