Video Tips:

  1. Check for proper lighting - avoid back light and fluorescent lighting
  2. Stay close to your subject for best sound recording, run a test if possible
  3. Use a tripod or monopod
  4. Have your subject looking at the camera or to ether side of the camera, as opposed to a profile
  5. Consider what is behind your subject, or your backdrop
  6. Run a practice video if possible
  7. Try to record "soundbites" or have the subject pause to allow for clean editing if needed
