Making your own audition video? Here are some tips:
You've got the smarts, the personality, and the physique, but you won't go anywhere if your video is a blurry mess and your voice comes out cracking! Follow these tips to make a great video:
1. Avoid shooting in front of a window with bright sunlight coming in as this will cause silhouetting.
2. If shooting indoors, choose a well-lit room with lights in front of you to light your face.
3. If shooting outdoors, avoid the sun shining directly behind you.
4. Find a quiet area to shoot so that other noises won't distract viewers. Also keep in mind that the wind may also distort the microphone.
5. Speak loudly and clearly.
Good luck, future racers!
