Filming Checklist: audio

  • Film in a quiet place in order to avoid background noise and interruptions.
  • Make sure that you’re not talking too fast and that you’re making pauses after each sentence/section.
  • If you can, use an external microphone


Filming Checklist: video

  • Film in a bright room.
  • Avoid filming outdoors.
  • Put the camera between the source of light and the subject.
  • Place your subject in the center of the frame, looking directly into the camera, with the eyes on approximately ⅔ of the height of the image.
  • Leave a little bit of headroom above the top of the head but not too much.
  • Avoid cluttered backgrounds.
  • Place your camera at the eye level of the subject.
  • Use a tripod, or mount the camera to something stable.
  • Do NOT use the zoom of your mobile phone
  • Adjust resolution settings of your camera and record in Full HD (1080p)
  • Sit 0,6-1m away from the camera
