- Hold your phone horizontally: Make sure to hold your phone horizontally (in landscape mode) while recording a video. This will help capture a wider frame and result in a more visually appealing video.
- Use the rear camera: The rear camera of your phone usually has a higher resolution and better quality than the front-facing camera. So, always use the rear camera to record your video.
- Clean the lens: Before recording, make sure to clean the lens of your phone's camera. Fingerprints and smudges can affect the quality of your video.
- Click here to upload your video to a dropbox folder
- Make sure the video format resolution is no less than 720p or 1080p. A high resolution video should be between 10-50 MB.
- If you have any issues uploading your video, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- Avoid shaky footage: Hold your phone with both hands to minimize shakiness. You can also stabilize your phone using a tripod or by propping it up against a stable surface.
- Check the lighting: Good lighting is essential for a good video. Make sure that your subject is well-lit and avoid shooting against bright light sources, which can cause overexposure or lens flares.
- Frame your shot: Consider the composition of your video. Try to position your subject in the center of the frame and avoid having too much empty space around them.
- Record in high resolution: Record your video in the highest resolution available on your phone (most phones automatically adjust). This will give you more flexibility in post-production and result in a higher quality video.
- Use external microphones: If possible, use an external microphone to record audio. This will improve the quality of the audio and reduce unwanted noise.

Hello, My name is….
The Georgia Legislature is close to voting Senate Bill 140, the ban on gender-affirming, into law- but it's not too late to act.
The unprecedented attack on trans rights across the nation has primarily targeted children, and that’s exactly what Georgia’s SB 140 attempts to do. This legislation prevents Georgia’s youth from receiving medically necessary and life saving care, even though health professionals recognize the positive impacts on the mental health and overall well-being of gender diverse youth.
Those who support SB 140 want to legislate a medical decision that should be private, and left up to the families. This legislation would even criminalize medical health professionals for administering gender-affirming care! This doesn’t protect anyone, it is part of a targeted and coordinated campaign of erasure.
Take action today! Call, tweet, email Georgia State Senators today! Tell them to vote NO on Senate Bill 140. Families’ decisions to choose gender affirming care for their loved ones is personal and private.
