You, the Talent
- Consider wardrobe choices - avoid bold prints, recognizable logos, thin stripes, or pure white. Choose solid colors that are complimentary of the background. Make sure you also feel comfortable in what you're wearing!
- Avoid wearing large, visible headphones — small earphones/earbuds are helpful for clean audio. Note: Your computer might also have a great built-in microphone!
- Choose a simple background/environment — a blank white or solid-colored wall is ideal, but a thoughtfully styled home office or neutral environment can also set a nice overall tone. Avoid bedrooms, kitchens, or other overly busy or personal environments.
- Choose a quiet space, free of audio interference (consider public transit sounds, or city noises), to ensure you can capture clean audio.
- Silence all smartphones and devices, and advise anyone in the house that a camera is rolling.
- Lighting is very important. It is advisable to place a table lamp directly in front of you to detach yourself from the background and to create even, neutral light across your face.
- Avoid shooting with windows or light sources directly behind.
- Place the webcam at eye level, if possible. Avoid low/high angles.
- On your computer, go fullscreen in Miro. To bring a clear focus on your content, hide the map at the bottom right, and collapse the bottom left toolbar.
- Once the space is set, run a video/audio check (record a few seconds) before proceeding, and check framing & video/audio quality.
- Avoid umm, uhhs, and other informal connecting words.
- We encourage animated, engaged performance, and use of hands - it might feel a bit unnatural, but a more engaged performance will communicate better in the edit.
