These are tips specific to video production done by DILC.

Studio Setting

For resource persons and talents:

  • Confirm way in advance your schedule for video shoot
  • No green wardrobe please. The background screen is already green. Blue is not encouraged.
  • Please avoid wearing glasses, as they might reflect studio lighting.
  • Wear some make-up.
  • Bring your presentation materials. Better still, send them to DILC in advance for comments.
  • Highly recommended: practice with your script and slides. Time yourself.
  • To simulate looking at the camera, practice in front of the mirror.


Slides will be incorporated into the video. We have these suggestions:

  • body font between 28-34 pts
  • title fonts between 38-44 pts
  • high contrast pictures and letters
  • make charts, graphs and the likes occupy the whole slide
  • If they are so numerous, group them into 20-minute long segments or parts. Recommended: introduce each segment or part in relation to other parts and the overall topic.
  • save presentation file as .ppt or .pdf
