These are NGU’s standard branding and style guidelines and materials, so you can stay on brand and support our mission.
How to record a video on your phone:
- Open your phone camera and choose video mode.
- Tap the record button to start recording.
- While recording, you can pinch the screen to zoom in and out.
- Tap the red record button again to stop recording.
- Use the back lens, not the selfie lens.
- Use a Bluetooth microphone for better sound. If that’s not possible, keep the camera within 3′ of the subject.
- Shoot in landscape (horizontal) orientation, not portrait (vertical.)
- Use a tripod. If you do not have one, let a friend hold the camera for you; don’t hold it yourself.
- Look into the camera lens, not at the person who’s holding the phone. (Unless you want to appear interview-style.)
- Tap on the face of the subject on screen to focus on the subject.
- Pick a quiet location with minimal background noise.
- Try to find an interesting setting. Avoid standing in front of a blank wall if possible.
- Pick a well-lit spot, but do not shoot against a window or other bright background.
- Be aware of your surroundings and what is in your shot. Remove anything that will be distracting.
- Wait a beat before talking, and wait a beat when you’re done before cutting.
- Smile! Be happy!
- Do not email or text the clips from your phone — they will come across at low resolution.
