Video Best Practices

Remote Recordings

There are a few things to keep in mind if you are recording yourself using a phone or webcam. We also highly recommend that you watch this short helpful video about best practices for smartphone video.

  • Dress professionally or in Pitt gear
  • Filming on a mobile phone works best, but a computer webcam will also work
  • Make sure to capture the video horizontally (turn phone sideways), not vertically
  • Make sure the light sources (windows, lamps, etc.) are in front of you, not behind you, when you record
  • Be mindful of what is around you when filming
