Thank you for being willing to provide content for our online service.

However, we don’t want anyone to feel under undue pressure to provide videos, so if you wish to discuss alternatives please do. For example, we can just take the audio, and overlay pictures.

Videos, or just audio, can be recorded using your phone, iPad or a computer and we will do all the editing to reframe it (zoom and recenter it) and remove the excess video at the start and end. We can extract just the audio from a video should it be awkward to make your phone record just audio.

If possible record at Video Quality 1080p, but if you don’t know what that is don’t worry about it! The content and your delivery of it is far more important than video quality.

Here are just a few key points for recording video, to help me make it look its best.

To avoid large black bars, please video horizontally.

Remember to smile at the start and the end of the video.

The camera is elevated, so Kate and Martha don’t look down on it.

They also have something in the background to add some interest.

They have left room for Subtitles and Name Captions.

Due to licensing complications – please avoid any background music in your recording.

It is easily added during editing, and you are welcome to make suggestions.

Important! Please don’t rush to start and stop the video, otherwise we will see you reaching for the camera in the final video.

Wait two seconds before and after, enough time for a smile!

We’ll trim off the rest.
