Video Recording Advice – Submit in YouTube –  Dance, Music, Theater

Record your piece in a clearly defined interior space with neutral lighting and with a non-distracting background.

    1. Shoot straight on, leaving the camera in one position. The camera should be placed sufficiently close to the performer so that positioning and movement of all parts of the body and face are clear and visible. Use a fixed point of view for your camera with you being the main focus. Do not pan or move the camera.
    2. Record with the camera framing your entire body to capture movement in place as well as movement in and through space.
    3.  Limit props to one stool, two chairs, and one table.
    4.  Make sure the acoustics in the room are strong. Practice your piece in the space. If you hear an echo in playback, adjust the recording volume or choose some place else to record. Utilize only the microphone on the video camera. Do not use a handheld microphone. No mics should be seen in the frame while recording your piece.
    5. Make sure the space is well-lit, but not too bright.  Too little light and judges cannot see you. Too much light will leave you overexposed and judges cannot see your expressions.
