How to use
Record your act in 5 second segments, totaling 15 seconds. Theoretically, showing the beginning, middle, and end of the act. You will have the ability to record a 5 second video, return to your service project, and later, continue recording, picking up where you left off, to complete the series.
Hands tied? Have a friend record the act. Get as creative as you like to get your message across! Remember…the goal is to show exactly what you did, in the shortest amount of recording.
