GENERAL REQUIREMENTS:

πŸ’‘ PRO TIP: Maximize Horizontal Videos πŸ—ΊοΈ Shooting horizontally will give you more flexibility in editing your videos, so you can achieve different aspect ratios in case a client needs more than one type of ratio delivered.

πŸ‘ Be mindful of the Video Type of the task you’re applying for.

  • Tasks with a Physical Product: Video ad, Testimonial, How-To, Unboxing, and 360 Videos

  • Tasks with a Digital Product: Video ad, Promo, Testimonial, Explainer, and Preview Videos

πŸ‘ How you present yourself is Key

When shooting scenes that focus on your hands, needless to say, your nails should always be clean and look aesthetically pleasing. For your appearance in videos make sure you appear as presentable as you can be ✨ Try your best and hide any visible injuries or scratches when filming.

πŸ‘ Make sure the Video Quality you're producing meets our Premium Quality standards

Premium Quality creators are expected to hold a certain standard when producing videos for tasks 😎


Do's and Don'ts πŸ€“

Here are some Things to Remember:

βœ… Adjust the brightness and exposure to make sure that the video doesn't come out too dark.
βœ… Remove Black Bars or corners, that might occur when editing or reframing your video.

βœ… Record your voice closer to the microphone or normalize audio in editing, to avoid your voice being too silent.

βœ… Leave some space around the product, so there is room for the brands to edit.

βœ… When exporting, use higher-quality final output.

... and some Things to Avoid

❌ Don't use HDR mode when shooting video with iPhone. It messes up the colors when you need to edit it.

❌ Don't Speed up sound, that sounds too fast and unnatural. You don't want to sound like "Alvin and the Chipmunks" πŸ˜…

❌ Don't use transition effects between shots.
❌ Don’t overcompress the final video

❌ No unnecessary items or people in the background or your scene.

❌ Don't film too close to the product.
