5 Fundamentals of Filming on your Smartphone
Story introduction

Hey everyone, make sure to watch the video above for more details of why we're making this video โ˜๏ธ

The 5 L's are all listed below. When filming please make sure you upload a clip to describe what the tip is, and a clip to demonstrate what this means. Feel free to make the descriptions your own and get creative with your demonstration clips too! ๐ŸŽจ

Landscape โคต๏ธ

Description: "Please film everything in landscape which means horizontally. This will make it much easier for us when editing and sharing the video" (make your own!)

Lighting ๐Ÿ’ก

Description: "Try to avoid shadows on your face and light coming from behind you. Natural light and light from the front will help illuminate your face so we can see you!" (make your own)

Location ๐ŸŒ†

Description: "Film in lots of different places - inside and outside if possible. Try to make where you film relevant to what you're saying too. It makes it more fun and will give us some visual variety to make the video more engaging" (make your own)

Listen ๐ŸŽง

Description: "Before uploading, listen back to your clips - preferably with headphones on - to make sure we can hear you. Try to avoid noisy rooms and windy tunnels!" (make your own)

Lots (of B-roll) ๐ŸŽž

Description: "B-roll is the extra footage we ask you to film that adds context to what you're saying and something nice to watch for the audience. With B-roll more is more, so think of some fun things to film and get creative with it!"
