Video Style Guide
 

It is a good idea to create a shoot / session plan which includes

  • Course learning goals
  • Course outline
  • Video length (20 minutes max)
  • Practice run date
  • Shoot date
  • Shoot location
  • Crew needed? 
  • Budget
  • Consider whether you’ll speak from a script or freely. If you script it, make it sound like speech, not like writing. Be sure to read it aloud as you’re developing it. 

 

Audio

Audio quality matters a great deal—many experts say it matters almost even more than video quality. Use a good mic and make sure it has directional settings.  Choose your recording location carefully and ensure there are no echoes or background noises (like fridges humming or far off lawn mowers....).  Ensure your video editing software has decent audio editing capabilities.  

Lighting
Your session must be well lit ideally with a daylight balanced light source (i.e no tungsten)
 

Background
Backgrounds must be clean / free from clutter.  
Pay attention to the composition of the background
Ensure you're a good distance from the background and try to find something with interest, shape, colour or texture.
A background with interest and depth will enhance the subject if framed well. 

The format
Start by introducing yourself and SNAP
SNAP should be introduced as 'SNAP Learning' which is the sub-brand of our video training
Introducing the subject matter and then tell the learner what they are going to learn.
Deliver the content
Summerise with what was learned
 

Connecting with the learners
Ways to connect with the learners / viewers include:
Providing supplemental materials
Follow up quizzes, exercises, and questions
If your session is screen sharing heavy make sure to show yourself for some of the session
Look right at the leaner while you're talking
Mix it up - include video, stills, share your screen, show practical elements
 

The recording

Pay attention to the way your words are coming out and aim for a confident and upbeat tone
Don’t record at the end of the day when your energy levels are lower
Be mindful of fidgeting / moving around too much

Delivery

Your video should be delivered via dropbox or via a hard drive.  Please do not upload your video anywhere online.
