How to make a good video for LaGrange Has Talent
IMPORTANT NOTE: BE SURE TO STATE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME, ACT/GROUP NAME AND A CONTACT PHONE NUMBER AT THE BEGINNING AND/OR END OF THE VIDEO RECORDING.
1. Set up your camera. Make sure you set it up in a location with good lighting. You may use your phone set up on a tripod to avoid movement or you may find that the audio/visual quality may be better on a dedicated video device, such as a full sized camera/camcorder.
2. Your sound quality matters. Sound is probably more important to achieving a high-quality movie than video. If the sound is low, distorted or sounds like it was recorded inside a cave, your viewers are quickly going to click next. Make sure to check if there are any attachments such as a microphone that can improve the quality of your video.
3. Use jump cuts sparingly, if at all. Your on stage performance (if you are chosen) will be live and won't allow for "tricks".
4. Make the video in HD. Using the correct settings in Movie Maker, you can make your video into a HD video.
