IDF Tips When Creating a Video

  • Get the Wide Shot - If you are filming with your phone, be sure to turn your phone horizontally. This will provide a better shot than a limited vertical view.
  • Bright Light Makes Everything Better - If you have a quiet place outdoors, outdoor lighting can be great for your video. If you can only record the video inside try to be around windows or in a room with a lot of light. Bright light usually makes the video quality better.
  • Clear the Lens - Be careful with the lens and make sure it is clear of any residue, we wouldn’t want any blobs or smears interrupting your video.
  • Keep Your Phone Steady - It’s important to make sure your video is not shaky, so place your phone on a stand or prop it up onto something steady while you’re recording.
  • Finishing up Your Video - When you’re done, contact us: and include your name and email address and we will contact you.
