Here are some additional technical tips from the team at FYI:

 
  1. Do NOT shoot footage (cell phone footage) vertically. Horizontal shots allow for the best edit. Outside of social posts vertical can be a challenge edit wise.
  2. Ring Lights help for self-shot footage.
  3. There is a 35 GB Limit for BOX uploads (if you have to upload several times for one piece make sure naming reflects the order the content was shot in).
  4. Give Full Copy of Card if shooting on camera.
  5. Upload all footage to BOX only, it cannot be emailed or sent via Google Drive due to security risks.
