Framing your Shot

  • Give a 5 second pause, looking at the camera, before and after you have finished your video.
  • Stabilize your camera on a solid surface.
  • Don’t be too far away from the camera.


  • Do not stand against a lit background, the sky, windows, bright walls and lights
    behind you will be a big problem.
  • Please make sure your room is light and bright but avoid direct sunlight.
  • Use a background that’s not too distracting but visually pleasing and interesting. Lighter solid colors are acceptable.
  • Using symmetric elements and contrasting items in your background helps.

Recordings over Mobile phones

  • Shoot the video in the landscape mode.
  • Shoot in the highest resolution possible. If you have 4k, great. Else minimum resolution should be 1920 x 1080.
  • Keep the phone on a steady surface. Use a tripod, if available. Else use books or any other prop available to ensure the phone is steady. Avoid shooting handheld.
