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:
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.
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! 👍 😃
