How to record a great video

Here's some tips on how to make a great video

Length

Remember, you don’t have to do a whole carol, you could just sing or play the chorus. The best videos are usually around 30 seconds long.

Light

It’s important people can see your happy faces in the video, so make sure the room isn’t too dark when you're filming.

Sound

Make sure you sing or play loud enough for people to hear your carol.

Your carol

Can’t think of a carol or Christmas song? No problem. We have put together some of our favourites to inspire you. Check out our Spotify playlist.

Get your friends involved

  • Have a party and get your friends together to make the video - you could get them to share it too.
  • Get a group of colleague together for a lunchtime sing-song, or make it a family occasion and get your children involved.
  • Why not hold up a sign before and after your carol to remind people to donate to the campaign or to make their own video?
  • Tag friends in your video and nominate them to share their own #Caroloke too.
  • But most of all... have fun and thanks for supporting our #Caroloke campaign!
