Top tips for your pitch video

  • Practice your pitch before you film your video!
  • Test your video and microphone to ensure the video and audio quality work BEFORE you run through your entire pitch. Avoid excessively bright backgrounds and windy areas.
  • Have a friend help you film.
  • Make sure the camera shakes and moves as little as possible.
  • Don’t wear the same color shirt as your filming background.
  • Record in landscape mode.
