Video

Put the camera at eye level by resting your laptop or smartphone on several books, ensure there’s minimal headroom at the top and that you’re looking into the camera, not at yourself on the screen

Audio

Avoid kitchens and other rooms with hard reflective surfaces like tile or hardwood. Bedrooms and dens with draperies, carpeting, and linen will provide a more natural sound by absorbing echo

Light

Directly face a window for natural light or close draperies if the window is behind you. A lamp hidden on the floor behind you will help separate you from the background

Downloads

Please note, we will be using a cloud-based recording system from Riverside.fm which requires either the Google Chrome web browser running on your laptop or desktop computer, or a smartphone app. Please ensure one of the below options is installed and running prior to our recording session.
