Graduation Celebration Video

Thanks for your interest in participating in something wonderful that we hope will mark a special time for our Graduands. Although we can't be together in person, we can be together from afar. 

We are compiling a video montage of our July 2020 Graduands (and some other fun stuff) that we will share with our ANU community when conferral takes place at the end of July. 

The important stuff:

  • Video must be submitted by Friday 24th July to with the subject line "VIDEO Message"
  • When submitting your video, you must attach a completed release form (this gives us permission to use your video, form is located in resources)
  • Don't be afraid to get creative, get your classmates/colleagues together (at a safe distance), dress up, and remember to have fun!
  • Not all videos submitted may end up in the final package


A few tips and tricks to make your video 

Before you record:  

  • Do some test runs to see how your video looks and the video volume sounds ok.  
  • Make sure the video is landscape.
  • Find a quiet room, preferably indoors to avoid any wind sounds and other noise.
  • Nice lighting - perhaps by a window for some natural light? However, if the weather is all over the place (sunny, then cloudy, then sunny again, etc) it might be best to film in a room with good lighting. This allows the video to have even lighting throughout. 
  • Make sure your background is clean and clear of any personal items you don't want to show e.g. laundry, family photos, etc.        

Filming Tips:  

  • Keep yourself in the centre of the frame.  
  • Speak at a normal, conversational pace.           
  • Look at the camera when you are talking, but you can have a script on a screen to refer to.
