Advice on Videos
Last updated 19.06.20
A little bit of advice from Mr Woodman about recording videos on phones / tablets.

We want to see you and what you are doing in W-i-d-e-s-c-r-e-e-n, so, to avoid the narrow strip down the middle of the screen effect:

... always record your videos with the phone or tablet in landscape:

Avoid recording against a bright background, to avoid silhouette effect:

To get the best sound, make sure that you are in a quiet place, close to your subject and don't make any noise yourself. If you are outdoors, avoid standing in a windy place; wind sounds VERY LOUD on the type of microphone on your phone.

Finally: Always record a few extra seconds at the beginning and end of the clip - it makes it much easier to edit and ensures that none of the recording is missed.

Thank you! 👍 😃

This is a summary from a guide that our video club made a few years ago:
