Tips on Creating a Virtual Performance

Liz Guglielmo, Director of Music, has uploaded 7 YouTube videos on using various programs HERE. 

For video tutorials on creating virtual musicals and theater productions, and more, Peter Avery, Director of Theater, has made a resource page available HERE.

RECORDING TIPS:

  • If recording using an iphone or any other smartphone, set up the device in a horizontal (landscape) position. Even if you feel that your full body would fit better in "portrait" (vertical mode), still please do horizontal.
  • Do some test recording.  It’s always good to record yourself practicing and then play it back to hear how you sound.
  • Singers - Make sure your camera isn’t too close.  Capture space above your head as well as all the way down to your stomach.
  • Don’t record too close and don’t record with a bright window or light behind you.  You should be the star!
  • Instrumentalists: Frame yourself and your whole instrument or most of your instrument.
  • You can film with: a cell phone, a webcam, a tablet, a desktop, a laptop, a digital camera, a video camera. Anything you have that you’ll be able to upload to a computer is OK.  Ask a family member for help, if needed.
  • Make sure you look good!  Can we see your face?  Your smile?  Your instrument? Turn on a light behind the camera so your face is well lit.  Make sure your background looks good.  Clean up if you need to!
  • Is the room still quiet?  Turn off any fans or anything else that makes noise.
  • Place the camera (phone or tablet) on a tripod / dresser / table. Please no hand-held filming - video gets wavy or shaky.
