Preparation Checklist

 

Prepare everything on this list before you create your video job ad within the Monster Studios App. This preparation will make creating and editing your video job ad effortless (and fun).

Company Logo

You will need to save an image of your logo to your phone. If you don’t have it already, reach out to your marketing department. Your logo can have a solid colour or transparent background – just make sure it stands out. 300 dpi is a great quality to shoot for.

Images of Workspace/People

If your company has a repository of photos, choose a few to save to your phone, or just take some pics of your own. You can show your office environment, location, happy employees, products or anything else you want to share.

Videos of Workspace/People

Your company may have videos of products, team-building exercises, or corporate events. But you can also shoot your own! Grab your phone and find people, places or things your target candidates would find compelling.

Written Script

Monster Studios has a built-in teleprompter so you can easily read a script without looking away from the camera. Put one together and save it to your phone via email, or place it in your Notes app. Then, you can copy and paste it into the teleprompter before you shoot.

Brand Guidelines

Make sure to review your company’s brand guidelines. Take note of logo usage, colour and font preferences, tone of voice, photography styles and anything that your video should align with. Consistency is key when building your employer brand.

Scout a Location

Find a good place to film. It could be in a quiet conference room, break room, your office – the possibilities are endless. Just make sure there is good lighting and that you won’t be interrupted while recording.

Review Your App Settings

Make sure to allow Monster Studios to access your phone’s microphone and camera. Go to Settings > Monster Studios > Microphone and Camera (should be on).
