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
