Native Cuisine Project

Filming your Common Craft Video

  1. Place your script where you can see it, and arrange your paper cutouts where they are easily accessible
  2. Point the iPad at the table, making sure you know where the visible area of the screen is on the table.  Make sure the iPad's camera is oriented correctly, or your video will end up sideways!
  3. If you are using the lavalier microphone:
    • Plug it into the iPad (make sure the adapter is attached)
    • Clip the mic to your shirt, below your chin
    • Make sure the power switch is "on"
  4. When you are ready, press the record button on the iPad and record your video

  3. Select "Drive"
  4. Make sure your account is selected, and tap "Upload"
