HOW TO READ A TASK BRIEF? 📝

EDUCATE YOURSELF:

  • Let’s focus on the star of the show - the brand & the product you’ll pitch in the “Product description” section. If you need more information just find the product online and read the description there.

LET'S GET TECHNICAL:

  • Check the “Video Type” and "Model" you’ll need to film,

  • Next, “Duration” - the length of the video.

  • “Aspect ratio” - the dimensions of your video.

THE FUN PART:

  • The “Scenes” area explains what the brand wants you to do or include in the video.

  • “Mentions” is what the brand wants you to say in the video.

  • Always double-check if there is any juicy information in the “Additional Info” field.

The golden rule: stick to the deadlines, stay on topic and always read the task brief.


TIPS FOR BETTER AUDIO QUALITY 🎤

✹ TIP # 1: REMOVE THE OBSTACLES.

  • Check if your phone case or fingers aren’t touching your mic!

  • Keep a good 15inches distance from your mic. Don’t be too close or far away.

✹ TIP # 2: CHECK YOUR SURROUNDINGS.

  • To avoid reverberation: choose a furnished & carpeted room.

  • When recording audio only: head to your closet or place your phone between sofa cushions and build a fort-slash-recording studio.

  • Getting an external microphone is highly recommended: even the $10 clip-on mic will do the trick!

✹ TIP # 3: IF YOU DID GOOD, CAN YOU DO BETTER?

  • Use free apps to fix and customize your audio. If you’re an Apple user - VoiceRecordPro is solid. For Android, check RecForce II.

  • Make sure the whole video has a consistent audio quality: avoid quality changes in different scenes, when using different recording methods.

So, remember: remove the obstacles, check your surroundings, and always strive for the best quality.


TIPS FOR BETTER VISUAL QUALITY 🎥

Hitting “record” might be easy, but before doing it, ask yourself:

✹ HOW DOES IT LOOK?

  • Check out how your lighting looks.

  • Check if your camera lens is clean.

  • Check if there is enough space for you and the product.

  • Clean up any clutter in your background.

  • Consider filming yourself with the rear-facing phone camera.

  • Make sure to use a tripod, but sturdy places work great too!

✹ DID I DO MY HOMEWORK?

  • Make sure you thoroughly read through the brief.

  • Make sure to educate yourself about the brand and their product.

  • Always plan your video shot beforehand to eliminate the uncertainty.

✹ HOW CAN I IMPROVE IT?

  • Consider using jumpcuts to break a single take,

  • The first 3 seconds of your video are the most important, so don’t forget to have a spicy video opener,

  • Ask yourself if the message is clear and if all the scenes are fulfilled.

Once you check, prep and review - you’ll nail the process!
