Making this video should be fun. We want it to both reflect your personality and your experience as a SheSpeaks member. Here are a few tips to help you get started. We can’t wait to see the final cut!
Step One - Lights
You will need a well lit environment. Use about 2-3 times more lighting than you would normally use to light up the room. Try to keep the lighting even- a lamp on either side of you, for example. Try removing lamp shades from lamps for brighter light.
If you’re using a webcam, try to remember to look at the camera and not yourself. It’s also a good idea to include any product you might be talking about in the frame with you.
Step Two - Camera
Make sure you have a digital video camera with voice recording. Just be sure to keep your camera stable and try to avoid any background noise. That’s all the equipment you will need.
Step Three - Action
Please speak in full sentences. Get creative: shoot purchases, boxes or whatever you’d like to demonstrate your SheSpeaks experience. The video should be 1-2 minutes in length.
Some hints to get things rolling:
Feel free to prompt yourself with the questions below. It might help to have an off camera friend call-out the questions. The trick is to answer questions in complete sentences by restating the question on camera.
For a video about your PASS Card
Start off with a strong statement about the product---that you love it or don’t. Then follow up with a few constructive reasons why. Here are some questions that might help you round out your review:
Q: What was your teen’s reaction when you gave him/her the PASS Card?
Q: How has he/she used the PASS Card? What did he/she buy?
Q: Have you recommended PASS to any other parents? What did you tell them?
Q: Have you talked about financial responsibility with your teen? What did you discuss?
