Tips to GOOD Video’s

  1. Shoot with your phone/camera in landscape.

  2. The clearer the video is, the better. Ensure you use the phone with the highest resolution in your team.

  3. Involve human, interaction and story line.

  4. Avoid shooting from the back. We prefer to see everyone clearly in action instead of their back or their hair.

  5. Try to shoot from different angles.

  6. Start deleting the least preferred shots on the same day so that you save space on your phone and you can speed up the editing of your video later.

  7. Due to music copyright on Facebook, your video may end up being muted. Try copyright free music or learn to cut your music down to 15 seconds block. This is where your ‘intelligence’ kicks in.
