To send pictures, audio or video files to me, click the button on the right and follow the instructions to upload to my dropbox.
You don’t need a dropbox account. Your name and email address are only for my benefit to say who the video has come from.
More “detailed instructions” are below.
If you need help feel free to send me an email – James Covey-Crump at email@example.com
Click for detailed instructions for uploading using iPhones and iPads
Alternatively, for small files such as audio recordings – you can send me them by email. On an iPhone or iPad, click here for advice (share it by “Messages”).
Click for detailed instructions for uploading using Android phones
Alternatively, for small files such as audio recordings – you can send me them by email. On an Android phone once you have made the audio recording, look for the three dots connected by lines ( icon), for older devices it might be the menu ( icon) followed by “Send file”. Then select “Gmail” or “Email”.
Alternatively, you are welcome to send me files by other means. I don’t recommend sending videos by WhatsApp as that drastically reduces the video quality.
Here are just a few key points if you are recording video
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.
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. There is a little distance so I can reframe it if needed.
They 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 recording 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.
