  1. When you talk about Edgenuity in your film, avoid referring to us by our former company name (E2020). Also try to avoid creating an Edgenuity commercial. We want to hear your story.
  2. Demonstrate how working in an online or blended learning environment has made the learning experience different: for you, personally; for teachers; for students; or for your school as a whole. Try using a compare and contrast method or filming in a documentary style. Think about the arc of the story you're trying to tell: does it have a beginning, a middle, and an end?
  3. Create a script before filming and practice, practice, practice. It may also be helpful to create cue cards or large poster board with talking points or notes to keep things flowing while you film or during interviews.
  4. Be sure to use a camcorder or a digital camera instead of a phone camera.
  5. Use a tripod if one is available, or place the camera on a steady surface like a shelf or a stack of books.
  6. Unless you've got a sure-footed cameraman, avoid shots that require someone to hold the camera while moving. Shooting like this can produce some really shaky footage that's difficult to watch.
  7. Shoot in a well-lit area and avoid backlighting. Backlighting refers to a light source (such as the sun) that is behind your subject. This can make your subject difficult to see.
  8. If possible, use an external microphone instead of the camera's built-in microphone. Most camcorders and digital cameras will have an input jack for an external microphone. This will enhance the audio quality of the video.
  9. Try shooting from different angles and viewpoints to add dimension and depth to the video. If you are interviewing someone, experiment with different shots to change things up, such as shooting full body, midsection, or close-up.
  10. Instead of filming all at once, shoot your video in small, easily assembled chunks. Then you can put them together in a video editing program later.
