Hello Ladies!!
Last week you showed your true work ethic by finishing your portions of the script in one sitting. If you feel that you have things to add do not hesitate to go on and edit your portion!

This week come ready to shoot the movie! It is exciting to see everything coming together. As you prepare, try to keep these reminders in the back of your head:

1. Check your background. Make sure it is a plain color or plain background, free of distractions.
2. Check your lighting. Make sure you have adequate lighting on your face, and it is not too dark to see you.
3. Check your outfit. Wear solid-colored tops, avoid patterns or reflective clothing as that can be distracting.
4. Camera angle!! Make sure your camera is on your face, be centered in the camera, not in the corner of the camera.
5. No windows behind you or obscene amount of light.
6. Make sure your microphone is on, either record in a quiet area or use headphones with a microphone so that people can just hear your voice and not your background noise
7. Cancel out distractions (No phones, no food, no dogs, etc.)
8. Don’t ramble, follow the script, no side stories!! Stay focused on the topic at hand
9. Be present!

Come ready to work this week ladies!! See you soon! 😊
