Video Tips

  • Length: 2-3 minutes max, please try not to go over 3 minutes if possible. 
  • You can use your cell phone.

  • Shoot with your phone sideways/landscape mode. Use a tripod or set it on something or have someone hold it for you with a very steady hand. 

  • Ensure your recording device is steady, in focus, and framed nicely.

  • Remove distracting/messy items from the frame (laundry, vacuum, food, etc.).

  • Avoid having a bright window, light, or moving ceiling fan behind you.

  • Your main light source should be in front of you, not behind.

  • In other words, you should be facing/looking at the brightest light.

  • Your audio should be clear and free of background noise (Turn off the TV/Radio, Have the kids be quiet, No barking dogs, etc.)

  • Please try to look directly into camera as much as possible.

  • If you have any questions please direct them to talent@crucialcasting.com
