  • Duration: Videos are 15s, 30s, or 60s long. Aim for the specified duration.

  • Aspect Ratio: It defines your video's size and shape. Is it horizontal (16x9) or square (1x1)? Remember this while filming.

  • Video Type: Whether it's an ad, review, TikTok video, etc., there's a linked explanation article in the app for each video type. ๐Ÿ“น๐Ÿ“๐ŸŽฅ

Think of it as a recipe for your videoโ€”use all the listed ingredients! ๐ŸŽฌ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿณ You can rephrase some stuff or add your own creative spin on it - but stay on the brief and make sure that the final output accurately reflects the brand's vision. ๐Ÿคฉ
