Project

  • Keep two important things in mind while planning your project:

    1. Choose a project that interests you;

    2. While you are choosing a project, check all the resources around you. If you are doing a project that needs lots of servo motors, ensure that you know a place from where you can buy them easily.

Shoot & Edit

  • You do not need an expensive camera or studio equipment to shoot your video; even the camera on your phone will do. However, you must make sure that your camera quality is decently good and that the audio (your voice) can be clearly heard.

  • You MUST NOT add background music, although you may use sound effects.
