Style guidelines for videos
We accept videos of all styles, but if you are unsure how to start, video blogs and recorded interviews are a good start.
A video blog
is best if you would like to tell the story yourself. A video blog is an open ended telling of your story directly into a camera. Webcams are an easy way to make video blogs, but you could also have a friend record you with another kind or use the inverted camera feature on iPhone.
A recorded interview
is best for capturing a story that is told between two people. You may want to conduct a traditional interview and use a third person to record the conversation. Alternately, the person conducting the interview could take video of just the storyteller answering questions. See a sample list of interview questions.
