Tips for creating your video

As you are already aware, people on social media need to be captivated by a video within the first 5 seconds of the video before fully engaging in the content! So, as you start to brainstorm on your chosen concept for this challenge, we want you to consider the following when creating your video:

  1. Is it an attention-grabbing video, piquing people’s interest throughout the video?
  2. How are people meant to feel when watching the video (energized, intrigued, inspired, connected)?
  3. This video needs to very clearly communicate your selected concept and message.
  4. Does this video highlight some of your strengths, whether it be your communication skills, persuasion skills, creative skills, etc…?
  5. It needs to be able to generate engagement on the post for you to rank on that leaderboard!

The TikTok technicalities that will help you create a great video:

  1. TikTok is compatible with .MP4 and .MOV videos
  2. Vertical aspect ratio (9:16) is most popular and most preferred
  3. Resolutions: try stick to 1080 x 1920 otherwise no less than 720 x 980 to prevent blurriness
  4. Currently the limit on characters used in video caption/description is 300 max (including hashtags)
  5. Currently the limit on video length is 3 minutes
