Keep On Showing Us All How to Keep On!Published: Apr 16, 2020 Categories: Encouragement
Grab your phone and video yourself, family members, or pets doing whatever it is you're keeping on with - the kind of video you might typically see on social media.
Here are some tips for creating your video:
- Use any recording device you have - your phone, computer or tablet. Clean the lens and use the highest quality setting your device offers.
- Don't worry about the volume of your video: we won't be using and of the original audio.
- Record different versions of the same activity. Video your activity one way, then try it at another angle.
- Keep the video short, 5-10 seconds.
- Variety is welcome. Can't decide if you want to keep on puzzling or keep on FaceTiming with grandma? Record both and send them to us!
- Be creative. Let the kids take over, show us your pets, let us see your makeshift curling competition.
- Be silly or be serious. There are so many ways to keep on and every message is welcome.
