Video Making Tips
- Upload video to YouTube
In order to upload your video, you must have a valid YOUTUBE ACCOUNT.
- Clear sound is crucial.
If no one can hear it, no one will watch it. Make sure to shoot in quiet environments and project your voice.
- Don’t backlight.
Make sure light is on your face and not behind it — i.e. don’t sit in front of a bright window.
- Tag your video.
Use tags to describe your video so that other people can find it — ex: “Anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, etc.”.
- Please don’t use our logo in your video.
Please note: we only accept previously unpublished work, with rare exceptions. We will review your submission and let you know when we post it on our website and social media platforms.
