Lighthouse Guild is very proud of its Scholarship Awardees and will be showcasing interviews of this year’s recipients on its website. Below are tips to help create the video & five questions to answer as you are filming

5 Tips to Record Video of Yourself with iPhone and Android

  1. Use the Front Facing Camera. Remember to clean the lens!
  2. Film the video in horizontal/landscape orientation. We are unable to use videos shot vertically. 
  3. Check and set your video settings. Ideally, 1080p at 30 frames per second.
  4. Brace yourself and the phone. Film yourself while sitting, and place your phone against something for support, or use a tripod clamp.
  5. Editing. Please film each question separately. You can do light video editing in your smartphone’s photo app, such as trimming to the desired length/segment of the video. On iOS is Apple’s iMovie. On Android, check out Filmic Pro. 

Interview Questions

To help you with your interview, the following are five questions to answer as you are filming. Please film each question separately.

  2. Where are you planning to attend college, and have you selected a major?
