One Button Studio for Students
Discover the potential to enhance your course sites by accessing the One Button Studios that are seamlessly integrated into Vula and Amathuba.
- Wear colours that are in contrast with the background, this is to avoid colours blending in with the background in post-production editing.
- Lighter shades of red are preferred.
- Wear pants with pockets or a belt, so it’s easier to attach the microphone transmitter.
- Wear Solid colours, like shades of blue, orange, purple, yellow and light red.
- Avoid wearing colours like teal, turquoise, shades of green (especially if you’ll be using the green-screen), reflective clothing, patterns (like stripes or other fine patterns), strong bright reds (it will make your complexion look very red), black, grey and white.
- Avoid wearing any colour that too closely matches your skin tone, because it makes your characteristics, especially your face and body features disappear, making viewers think you’re nude
- Avoid wearing clothes with logos or recognisable brands.
Especially if you use the lightboard the video producers need to flip your image.
- Avoid wearing clothing with flimsy or soft material, because the weight of the microphone can pull the light material down.
- No caps/hats as they will cast shadows on your face.
