About making videos

Please don't get too close to the screen when you video yourselves. I need room to crop! There should be a little space above your head and the lower end of the video frame should be around your chest. Any closer, and you will be making a lot more editing work for me!  It's impossible to line singers up at eye level if you are hovering at the lower end of your frame.

Please use medium (1280 x 720) or high resolution (1920 x 1080) for your videos. You can change the settings on your phone. Enlarging a low-resolution video gives a fuzzy image. Higher resolution files are too large to email. They need to be sent either by an iCloud link or Dropbox link or you can upload to the link I provided at the top of the right hand column.

Finally, some people are telling me thay have issues uploading files to this link from their phone. It's SOOO much easier if you hard-wire your files into a laptop or desktop computer and then upload it from there.


All are welcome.

This was our pilot project. We had 21 singers and I cut my teeth on positioning videos within videos and lining up mouths with sound. It was an adventure, and an exponential learning curve for us all! Thank you to the intrepid souls who helped launch Fauntleroy Virtual Choir!

Tips for producing a good video of YOU singing!

1. Use your iPhone or iPad to video. Turn it to a horizontal aspect.

2. Set your camera at eye level or above for the most flattering angle.

3. Be at least a couple of feet away so your face doesn’t look distorted.

4. Make sure you have a light source shining on you, rather than in the background.

5. Leave me plenty of room in the video frame to crop in all directions. In other words, you don’t need to take up the entire image area. I have two great editing tools called CROP and ZOOM!

6. Smile and look joyful. (This is hard, I know, and it takes practice.) Try to imagine you’re on stage performing with your choir, projecting confidently, while you are singing.

7. Please don’t be self conscious or worried about your video. I will edit out any parts that aren’t quite right, so if you make a mistake singing, it’s OK. Don’t try to do it all perfectly. Indulge in some joyful imperfection! Nobody will look at or listen to your file but me. In the end your voice will blend in with everyone else’s.
