Video Guidelines

Video Checklist

Please read through all of the video guidelines to ensure your project is ready to launch!

  • If filming with a cell phone, only film in a horizontal orientation. Do not film with the phone in a vertical position.

  • Use 720p or 1080p HD (High Definition) capture settings on your camera.

  • All videos are REQUIRED to bookend their videos with the provided You Fund branding. It is your choice which template you would like to use. Templates are available for download HERE.

  • For best quality, film interviews in the shade or near a window if you are indoors. Filming in the shade will even out the light on your subject and won’t cause them to squint during the video.

  • For best sounding audio, stay within 3 feet of the camera while recording. Try to avoid areas with noisy traffic, loud machinery, or wind (good luck with that one).

  • Keep your message short. Your final video should be no longer than 1-3 minutes, so you’ll have to edit accordingly. Keep your message clear and concise.

  • Take OFF your sunglasses and hats! Allow your viewer to recognize and get to know you.

  • DO NOT USE MUSIC when you edit your piece together unless it is downloaded from a "Royalty Free" album. You can search for music and sound effects on iTunes under the heading of "Royalty Free." Using licensed music without the artist's written consent is strictly prohibited. If you find a royalty free song you like, you will need to provide the royalty free album information with artist name and song title when you submit your final video.

  • It is important to note that “downloading music for free” and “royalty free” music ARE NOT the same thing. Also, using a song you purchased is NOT the same as purchasing a commercial license to use the song.

  • Video editing software is available in editing bays at Coe Library and the IT building near fraternity row. If you’ve never used Adobe Premiere or Final Cut Pro, a number of easy tutorials are available on YouTube. Final videos should be exported at 720pHD video.
 
GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!
