General Filming Tips for All Songs

  • First of all, have fun.  This is for you!  Enjoy yourself and know you are making a difference by helping us raise money for Camp Ooch, for kids with Cancer.

  • You will need earphones and two devices for this (a phone and a tablet or a phone and a laptop or two phones, etc).  One device needs to be able to take video.  The other needs to be able to play music.  If you can do that, you are all set.

  • Plug your earphones into the device that will play the music.  This is important.  We don't want to hear the music when you film, only you should be able to hear it.  The filmed video of your performance should just have your voice.  This will make editing your performance into the final song much easier.  Don't worry!  There will be music in the final edit.  

  • Use the other device to film your performance.  

  • Make sure the device you use to film is filming horizontal (unless we advised otherwise in the Visual Direction section above).  This is mostly important if you are using a phone or tablet (if you are using a laptop, it will automatically do this).  We want the shot to be wide, not tall. 

  • If you film using a phone or tablet camera in selfie mode (meaning you can see yourself on the screen), note that when filming horizontally, when you stare at yourself, you are not staring at the audience.  You need to stare at camera to appear to be staring at the audience.

  • When filming, try and set or hold your device at eye level or just slightly higher.  Not below you or the shot will appear facing up.  

  • Also, unless we advise otherwise in the Visual Direction section above, try and leave a bit of space above your head (above three fingers worth of space between the top of your head and the top of the shot). 

  • We will do our best to edit in as much as your performance as we can but depending on the number of people in the song, it may only be small portions. 

  • Don't stress over any of this.  At the end of the day, it's about having fun.  Enjoy!!
