What is a Good Life? Missouri wants to know!

The Missouri Community of Practice is collecting short (10-15 seconds) videos that tell us what a good life is to you and your family. These videos will then be compiled into one Good Life video for Missouri. Once the editing is complete, you will receive a link to the final video.

Tips for Recording Your Video
Equipment

  • Use your smartphone (iPhone, Android device), tablet or a webcam to record your video.
  • Practice using your equipment before recording to make sure you are familiar with it. We recommend taking a sample video to check the quality of your video.

Video

  • Make sure the action is directly in front of the camera and make sure to look at it when you speak.
  • Use a tripod, table, or other object to hold your device if possible to avoid shaky video.

Sound

  • Make sure to record your video in a quiet setting.
  • Speak clearly and loud enough so that the camera picks up the audio.

Lighting

  • Film in a well-lit area, but avoid high contrast lighting and spots of very bright light, as these often. come across as blurs of light when viewed on the Internet.
