The Picture House Tips for Recording Video at Home - If you are lming with an iPhone, iPad, or any other personal device, place the device in a horizontal position. You can also use Photo Booth or another application on a desk top or laptop computer.

- Make sure your camera is steady. Fix the camera to a tripod, or prop it up securely with something heavy. 
 - If you are giving an interview, or telling a story, place yourself in the left third, the right third, or the middle of the screen. We should see you from the middle of your chest up to the top of your head. This is your “frame”. Think of placing yourself in your frame how you would want to place yourself in a framed picture on the wall. 
 - If you are recording something that requires some movement, ask another family member to stand in the frame. Have them imitate the actions you will be performing, and measure how much room you will have to move around in your frame. You want to remain completely inside of your frame at all times. 
 - Try not to look down at the camera or up at the camera, place your camera at eye level. 
 - Pick a lming location that is well-lit and quiet. Do not lm with a window directly behind you. Try to sit or stand near windows that are in front of you or to the side of you, so the light from the window is lighting your face. Feel free to add a lamp, we want to see you. 
 - Sit or stand at least three feet in front of your background. Don’t place yourself directly against a blank wall. 
 - Turn up the volume on your device and Speak Up!! Test your sound - say a few words in front of the camera and play it back. Can you hear yourself without straining? Is there a lot of background noise? Keep trying until your playback is loud and clear.

- If given a le size choice, please choose 720p.

- Please name your les! Use your rst name and subject of video.
