Edumarketer Tip #127: Formatting Tips for Video Recording

Uncategorized Sep 21, 2021

1. Shoot Horizontally

Computers are formatted to view videos horizontally.  If you’re shooting on your phone, make sure to shoot horizontally. This produces an overall better quality video and also allows for more of the scene to be in the frame. 

2. Shoot in 4k

If possible, record your videos in 4k. This quality was made for videos and allows for an amazingly clear and beautiful video, especially if you’re zooming in on something. It also allows for a much deeper and truer color tone. This is great because you really get the true colors that are in the shot.

3. Start and End with a Smile

Always remember to look at the camera lens at the beginning of your video and smile.  It is the first thing someone will see when they watch your video and it will help to make a connection.  At the end of your video, do the same thing.  Pause, look at the camera, smile and thank them for watching.  

Formatting your video is not difficult, you just have to get used to your settings and what works for your videos. The more you practice the better you will get.
