We created an easy to follow (and optional) template for a Maker Story.
- Show the Maker Stories Logo (print it, draw it, make it from LEGO!, etc.)
- Introduce yourself
- Explain what you make (hint: show it quickly, or show a picture)
- Explain where you get your maker inspiration
- Thank someone who helped you become the awesome maker that you are 🙂
- Provide a way for the audience to learn more about you and your work (hint: show a URL, twitter username, etc.)
Watch Adam’s Maker Story for an example of this template.
You don’t have to be a video pro to shoot your Maker Story. Use these tips to keep it easy & fun!
- Find a location with good lighting and low noise.
- If you do #1, you’ll find that a “point & shoot” camera on a table or a tripod will do a great job. If you use a laptop webcam, elevate the laptop so that the camera isn’t pointed up at you.
- Try to record your Maker Story in one take. If you are really good at video editing, go ahead – but it isn’t required. If you make videos or motion graphics and want to show off, go for it 🙂
