Here ARE SOME QUALITY TIPS and Techniques
FOR GREAT VIDEOS
  • Audio

    Ensure your audio is free from distracting background noises, such as dogs barking, mic pops, humming or fuzziness. Some noises are OK, but do try to minimize them the best you can.

  • HD Video

    Video should be filmed in HD, 720p or higher to minimize the frustration from pixilated or blurry videos.

  • Lighting

    Lighting is essential to great quality videos! Every part of your video should be well lit so users can see what you're working on. Investing in a few cheap lights will pay off and can raise your ratings!

  • One Shot

    Film your repair all in one long, continuous shot; if you mess up or stumble on your words don’t stop recording. Just take a moment and repeat that last sentence again and keep going. You can easily cut that mistake out in the editing process.

  • Center Framing

    Frame your videos so that the part you’re fixing is centered on the screen to give your customer a clear view of what you’re doing. Remember: He is trying to reproduce the repair you’re doing and needs to see every step.

  • Tips & Tricks

    People love hearing tips and tricks from others, so don’t forget to mention them in your video to help others learn from your experience.
