Tips for Making a Great Video

Make your story compelling!  Think about the shows, videos, and teachers you find engaging.  How do they capture your interest?  Use those techniques.


Research – Start with our U.S. Rice 101 page. The more you learn, the more you’ll have to work with.


Get Creative – Think outside the box. Use a unique approach that gives a fresh perspective.


Plan & Prepare – Before you start filming, think about your whole video. Scripting and even storyboarding will help as you shoot and edit your video.
