Arts and Crafts

We are looking for people who are good at arts and crafts. There
will be no presenting involved, for these videos we will only see
your hands, so no presenting experience is necessary. However, it
will be advantageous if you / someone in your household has
experience with cameras, as the set up is a little more
complicated than the other segments.

Please see some camera angle examples for the best way to
shoot a crafts video. NB. We will edit this video, so if there are long

segments, don’t worry, we can speed these up.

Technical Tips

We will endeavour to send you some lighting equipment and a microphone, though given the current situation, it’s unclear if we
will definitely be able to get that to you. So, we would like your audition to be an example of how you would shoot content,
should equipment not be able to get to you. Here are some pointers (though we will of course guide you at a later date):
Please ensure that your recording device is set to record at the following specs:
– 1920 x 1080 / 25fps
– If possible, lock exposure so that this doesn’t changing during filming
– Ensure that autofocus is on (if filming on an iPhone or Android device this should be the case by default.)
– If no autofocus is available on your camera/lens then please ensure proper focus is held throughout the recording.
Please ensure the following with regards to the shooting set-up:
– You are evenly lit from the front, not backlit, and that there are no harsh shadows on your face.
– There are no harsh shadows in the room around you, we want the space to look as friendly as possible 🙂
– Please ensure there is no inappropriate or third-party artwork in shot.
When filming, you will need to make sure that your voice and any other live sound can be heard audibly in the recording.
Please ensure the following:
– You are filming in a quiet environment with no background noise that will interfere with the recording.
– You are filming in a room which has minimal echo, ideally a room with a lot of soft furnishings.
– You are positioned not too far away from the recording device so that the microphone can clearly pick up your voice.
– You may have access to an external microphone and/or audio recording device. If this is the case then this will be the
prefered way to record the sound, so it can be synced with the visuals after.
